Question about Garmin n?vi 265WT Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Frozen on 'loading...' page during registration

I was registering my Nuvi 265 WT and one step required new software to be loaded. Once the software was complete I was directed to remove the device from the computer and allow it to restart on it's own. It was supposed to get to a 'Where? or Map' page, but it is stuck on 'LOADER LOADING...' and has been for over an hour.

I have read of people screwing up because they didn't follow the directions on a firmware update, so I don't want to shut it off or reconnect it to the computer.

    I was registering and loading new software and it asked me to remove the device from the computer and reconnect and now all I get is system software missing message, and the computer does not see the device connected to USB. I e-mailed garmin and am waiting for support. It is Saturday of course. Someone else posted that on their 255 the same thing happened and they gfot some files from garmin to fix it. Guess I have to wait. This sucks!!!

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.

Navigation map do not show up, next turn etc. Also show message "no map info".


My problem was cured by reformatting the Mini SD card that holds the map data. I had the same problem this week with my Garmin Nuvi 265. After doing an update I received the "No Data Available" message when trying to use my GPS. After trying three days of so-called fixes I remembered that, at least in my case, the map is stored on a Mini SD card. I pulled the card from my Nuvi and popped it into the computer to see what's on there. There are 4 or 5 files associated with the map. I deleted the files and reformated the Mini SD card using the FAT32 setting. I reinistalled the card into my GPS. Prior to connecting the GPS to my PC, I uploaded the latest version of Garmin Express. Once that was loaded I reconnected the GPS and had to re-register the unit. Once that was done the software told me that there was a new update. I ran the update. Lo and behold . . . after about 25 minutes the map was successfully loaded to my Nuvi and it was working as it should.

How do I register my new Garmin Nuvi 1300 online?


I've registered a Garmin device very recently. The web-page for registering them is at https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/marketing/register.htm . From there, choose Automotive, create an account if you don't already have one with Garmin.

From there, you'll need to enter your serial number which you can find "on the bottom of the unit, inside an outlined box (remove mounting bracket to view)." (from the Garmin site)

You might also need a cable to plug your Nuvi 1300 into your computer. If you need this, it will have come in the box and should be easy to find. You may also have to install some software which they will instruct you to do during registration.

Erratic behavior is an indication that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

Satellite reception is one of the issues addressed in Garmin Nuvi 265WT firmware updates.

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.
