SOURCE: batteries will not charge

Your not the Lone Ranger on this problem. After awhile the battery will no longer take a charge. IT is not a replaceable battery by the user. It must be sent back to Garmin for a new battery. If you only use the gps when in a vehicle, it still will work fine when pluged into a 12v source.

My Garmin Nuvi 550 has quit talking to me. I understand the unit must be connected to a power source in order for it to speak. I have not paired it to my cell phone or downloaded the MP3 files. I have...

You should download, install then connect and run the Garmin WebUpdater on your nuvi 550 first. The new maps shouldn't have caused a problem - but stranger things have happened. After the firmware update, you will have the latest firmware to go along with those maps you installed.

IF you're still having problems, the Service Reps at Garmin are about as knowledgeable as they get for Garmin products. Give them a call on their dime too - there are other ways too - pick which method suits you best from the choices here.

Please rate this reply if it was helpful - good luck!

Hi, you can get the serial number by searching one of the various papers that accompanied the Garmin Nuvi when you bought it. In the box, somewhere, is a yellow sheet. If you look at the bottom of the sheet, you will find serial number as well as registration code in small black letter at the bottom of the page.
But should in case you did not get the Garmin Nuvi brand new (maybe fairly used), then you have to contact the person you got it from to get the serial number because without it you cannot complete your registration.

Here is Garmin technical support telephone number and fax

1-800-800-1020 or 913-397-8200 (Telephone number)
913-397-8282 (Fax)

Take care

Garmin screen freeze

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Not starting, getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Installed 2010 North America map in garmin Nuvi Nuvi sez ther is no readable map for it to load

I just got off the phone with tech support. They have a very complicated fix that involves remote accessing into your computer and editing files, etc. They said it would take over an hour and a half, I declined. The problem apparently is that the nuvi 200/205 can't support canada, but the maps contain canada = problem. and btw, i downloaded "City Navigator Lower 49 States+PR NT 2010.10, Deluxe, Apr 09" and got the same problem. this filename ends in a "B", apparently that's the "fixed one" but acc tech support it's only fixed in the sense that they can waste over an hr w' u fixing it, whereas the older files are unfixable.
I'm just gonna wait til they really fix it and upload those files.
Hope that helps.
