The system bootloader software got scrambled when you did the update. You can escalate it to a software tech and they may be able to give you the bootloader image file. If not, you'll have to get an RMA and send it back for a unit swap.

If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult.

My nuvi 265W screen keeps flashing the "GARMIN" startup logo...and wont stop


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

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.

I hope that helps.
