Question about Garmin nuvi 250 GPS Receiver
I saw you answered someone who had a 250 frozen screen by showing them where the reset button is.
I have a new Garmin 255. While registering it I had to load in new software and my screen froze saying "loader loading" I cannot turn it off and it doesn't reset according to the manual.
Is there a reset button or another way? The manual says to turn the unit off and on ... that doesn't work either! Where is the reset button on the 255?
The Soft resets are as follows, all data is safe here now.
If there is a reset hole in the bottom of the unit, Press this in a few seconds,
Or, slide the power key to the left for 10 seconds
Or, hard reset, data loss will occur doing this procedure.
Press the lower right corner of the screen, while turning it on, keep pressing until the pop-up appears.
Press yes to clear all user data.
Now re-register it, and re-update it,
You may need unit I.D. it is in, Menu, tools, settings, system, about.
Sticker on base for Serial number.
Hope this helps
