The problem was following the Garmin instructions too closely. What I found via a GPS forum was that some USB cables can be finicky and trying different USB cables may solve the problem. In my case I found I had to turn the nuvi 255W on normally during registration; then connect the USB cable to device and PC. Then the registration and download worked.
The documentation is not clear on this.
Found I had the latest map; but did upgrade my firmware from 5.90 to 6.10.

Please make sure that you are connecting the usb cable directly to a usb port on your computer and NOT through a usb hub. Then make sure you are registered with Garmin and have downloaded the latest Garmin updater software. Make sure that the unit is fully charged. Once it is connected and recognized the map update can take hours even with a fast internet connection.
Thanks for using FixYa.
