Question about Garmin nuvi 260W GPS Receiver
Hello, Last December I bought in Italy a Nuvi 200 GPS, I used it without problems during almost 30 days. Finished my holiday, I returned home and decided to update the Unit software on the website www.garmin.com. While the update was being installed in the unit there was an electrical failure power supply, interrupting the process. Since then every time I turn my NUVI 200 on, In the screen only appears, apart from the logo of Garmin, the error message "SYSTEM SOFTWARE MISSING". I wrote to firstname.lastname@example.org <email@example.com> to get help but with no results. I dowloaded the software indicated in his mail: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/store/downloadsDetails.jsp?id=1249&product=010-00469-00&cID=161&pID=351 following step by step the mail instructions, but it was no possible restore my unit software, just error message "The Actualization File is damaged". ------"Your garmin device has Not been updated". After that SW offers me the possibility to find and install new actualizations so clicking on CONTINUE offers me install :"nuvi 2x5" and continuing a new final error.
All Garmin users,
There is no easy solution for this except to return your unit to the nearest Garmin outlet. You need to have very special equipment called an E-Prom burner or writer which only Garmin have. With this equipment they re-programmed (restore) the operating system back on your specific Garmin unit and model.
The problem why anybody can't do it is because there is no way you can access your Garmin unit from a pc or mac if the operating system is lost or damage on your Garmin, for the simple reason your pc or mac can't reconize the device that is pluged in, because there are no communication platform between the two devices.
As simple as that, life with it or send your Garmin gps to an autherized professional Garmin dealer.
