    My Nuvi is stuck on the message "No detailed maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot be used without them." And I've tried powering off and reseting, I'm thinking I just have a bad system.

Garmin Nuvi 255w will not let me use it when being charged. Only get charge screen


Sometimes this happens because the mini USB plug of the charger is not fully pushed into the back of the satnav. It feels like it is but it's not. Pushing it in further may solve the problem.

There is a hard reset button under the sticker at the bottom of the unit. It is located directly under the check mark on the sticker. Once you get it going fully charge the unit then go to the Garmin website and register and update your 255w. I will attach the link to the Garmin Site. Thanks for using FixYa

Try resetting your unit with the reset button on the bottom. If this doesn't work, slide the power button all the way to the left and hold it for 8 seconds.
