SOURCE: update problem with Garmin Nuvi 255w

I had same problem. I called Garmin customer service who connected me to a computer rep. Garmin hooks with your computer that you have your Garmin plugged into.They can upload the proper software in no time at all.
The rep told me that after I updated my Garmin I might have turned off the unit before it completed updating the new software. You need to wait until the screen with "Where to?" appears.
It works great now. Prepare to wait on hold for a while. I waited just over an hour on Monday, their busiest day.

SOURCE: System Software Missing on Garmin Nuvi 255W

Hi,
Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550
Goodluck
Auke

The device has a unit number on one of the screens. Contact Garmin and give them the unit number and they should be able to give you the serial number

I an trying to register my nuvi 255w that i bought at canadian tier and get my update for it and i can not find out how to register it.my address is 88 woodstock drive,sherwood park,alberta canada,t8a4e2.


With the off, plug in your Nuvi to your computer using the supplied USB cable (you can also use a usb camera cord ).

The Unit will show a screen that your pluged in.

Now go to www.MyGarmin.com and register your unit. It then will give you the lastest updates.

I use the North American 2009 or Updated North American 2010 maps for when I go back and forth to Canada from the States.. both maps are good

Maybe it is looking for the GPS? You have to use a USB cable and plug the GPS in. The computer sees it as another drive, that is where you can add photos, POI, etc. Without the GPS plugged in, Garmin can not connect to download maps. Hope that helps
