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

Tips for a great answer:
Sep 11, 2011 | GPS
Insert the memory card into the memory card slot on Garmin
Nuvi 250 GPS device. The memory card slot is located on the left side of the
device. Push the card in until it clicks. (If you inserted a memory card that
already has pre-installed maps and files, there is no further action required.
The device will access the new maps based on the address you enter.)
Connect the Garmin GPS to the computer using the USB cable.
The mini-USB connector will need to be inserted into the rear of the Nuvi 250;
the larger end is inserted into the computer's USB port.
Locate the computer file that you want to download to the Garmin
memory card. The Nuvi 250 is capable of reading JPEG formatted images and GPX
formatted Waypoints and other mapping-related files. Right-click on it. Select
Select the "Computer" folder from the computer's
desktop Start menu. Double-click on the "Removable Disk" drive that
represents the Garmin Nuvi.
Right-click in an empty space within the drive and select
"Paste." The files have now downloaded to the memory card and will be
accessible through the Nuvi 250 menu options.
Good Luck, and do rate the solution if got help
