Page 37 of this manual gives some tips:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/nuvi205_OwnersManual.pdf

Basically, if you want to turn the system on, just return to your "Security Location."

If you want to reset the 4-digit code you will need to send your nuvi to Garmin and provide proof of purchase or valid registration.

SOURCE: No connection to PC

I had the same problem. The solution was so simple but I tried everything I could imagine before this: Remove cable from pc and garmin. Now.. the secret...FIRST switch on your garmin and then connect it to the cable and to the usb port of yor pc! That was is for me! So simple really but in every manual I read it said just connect it, it didnt say first switch it on!!

Have a large socket but not a usb socket how do I update cannot find a lead that looks like it would fit


Hello,

The USB cable will have a regular size USB connection on one end and the other end will have a micro USB connection. There will be a micro USB connector on the back side of the nuvi 255W.
The correct cable to use is Garmin part number 010-10723-01.

How to connect my garmin nuvi 255w to a computer


To connect the Garmin 255w you will need a usb cable. If you don't have one that came with it you can check all your other electronic devices like camera, camcorder,mp3 player etc..( my mp3 player usb cable worked fine). Carefully and gently try each one. One you get a usb cable connect it directly to a usb port on your computer and not thru a usb hub. then go over to the Garmin site and register the unit and download Garmin updater to update your unit. I am attaching the Garmin link for you. Thanks for using FixYa

I have received the lifetime update card for my Garmin 255W. Now what do I do next? Apparently I need a username & password. Where do I do that?


When you register your satnav at www.garmin.com you select a username and password. If you haven't already done so you'll need to connect your satnav to your pc to register it. If you have and have forgotten the username and password you'll have to contact Garmin Support. Contact details are at http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/cache/offonce/us/support/supportcontact;jsessionid=451C4302E8469EEE9E7F2C9DABE2DD6D

Try resetting your unit with the reset button on the bottom. If this doesn't work, slide the power button all the way to the left and hold it for 8 seconds.

My garmin 255w nuvi keep turning off and wont turn on


It is a good idea to perform a hard reset on your Garmin Nuvi after updating the software.

The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.
