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 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

System software missing


Current version of software is 5.0
Download that as that may be your problem.
You must download the newest version of WebUpdater from Garmin for free to your computer.
Then:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

System software missing


I did exactly the same thing!. This is how I fixed it.
Use Updater.exe NOT WebUpdate. Download the latest firmware for your unit (the rgn file), then connect your nuvi via usb. Turn it on and hold the power button left, at the same time drag and drop the rgn file onto the Updater,exe. It will start automatically and reload the firmware over the corrupt one.

Here are the files:-

Try first unplugging all cables and let it rest for a while.

Keep the start button pressed for ten seconds.

I will check if there is an alternative way to reset your unit.

Won't turn on.


I have had this problem before and have always been able to get the unit to power on by pushing the reset button on the back. If you haven’t tried that, then need to get paper clip to push the reset. You may need to sync afterwards to reload your software.

I hope I have been some help.
