Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver
Registered a Garmin Nuvi 255w and was following instructions to update firmware. Was told to disconnect device and then restart unit and reconnect to usb to continue. Am now getting message on device screen stating that the system software is missing.
Webupdater cannot find the unit and trying to reinstall software states that the files are corrupted.
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.
