Question about Garmin nuvi 250 GPS Receiver

Reset 255 loader loading frozen

I saw you answered someone who had a 250 frozen screen by showing them where the reset button is.
I have a new Garmin 255. While registering it I had to load in new software and my screen froze saying "loader loading" I cannot turn it off and it doesn't reset according to the manual.
Is there a reset button or another way?

    Yeah! I have a NUVI 255 I've just downloaded the web updater from Garmin and I have the screen displaying Loader loading and it's frozen. I wish I hadn't bothered but there must be a solution out there/ Can any help?

    Same here, after updating the 255T to latest software with WebUpdate. Previous updates went fine. May be an issue with the latest update? I have opened a support request with Garmin, let's hear from them.

    bricked I think

    Down loaded the required update during registration and now frozen.

    Nothing on Garmin website, curiously absent references to this issue...

Press the reset button - you'll find it on the lower right of the Nüvi 255, but it doesn't look like a button. It's basically the sticker with all the information on it. It's just enough to push the sticker carefully with something small, not too sharp so it doesn' get destroyed. The Nüvi reboots, the loader loads and proceeds with the software load. Once this is over, shut down the Nüvi and reconnect to the PC. Then, everything works fine (it did at least for me).

Garmin Nuvi 350 screen iz frozen. reset did not help.


Look near the SN # and press the reset button.

or

with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

Did you try pressing the reset button on the bottom. Its located under the decal. You should be able to press it without having to remove the decal. If that doesn't work, please let me know.
