Question about Garmin nuvi 250 GPS Receiver

Reset 255 loader loading frozen

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?

Hi,

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
Regards
Richard.

Do a hard reset on your GPS. Download and install Garmin Express from Garmin. Plug your GPS into your computer. The software will identify your GPS and allow you to download new maps to it.

Garmin Nuvi 350 screen iz frozen. reset did not help.


Look near the SN # and press the reset button.

or

with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

Frozen screen and it says loader loading


Press the reset button - you'll find it on the lower right of the Nüvi 255, but it doesn't look like a button. It's basically the sticker with all the information on it. It's just enough to push the sticker carefully with something small, not too sharp so it doesn' get destroyed. The Nüvi reboots, the loader loads and proceeds with the software load. Once this is over, shut down the Nüvi and reconnect to the PC. Then, everything works fine (it did at least for me).

Did you try pressing the reset button on the bottom. Its located under the decal. You should be able to press it without having to remove the decal. If that doesn't work, please let me know.
