Question about Garmin n?vi 265WT Car GPS Receiver
I hooked up my gps to the computer to charge. Went to click eject, accidently hit format. Rather than unplug it, and ruin it, I let it complete the format. Now it wont connect to any satellites, and the menus are different. Does anyone have a solution!? Thanks.
You have erased the map file ("gmapprom.img") and the base map ("gmapbmap.img") and updating WILL NOT restore those. Additionally, they are locked to your device so you can't copy them from a friends device. gmapprom.img is about 1 - 1.3 GB. Its huge.
You need to send it back to Garmin to get reloaded I think.

keep your fingers crossed. basically that is an external hard drive... when you format it.. you erase everything... apparently that has partitions in it as you didn't lose everything tho i suspect you did lose the maps
