Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver
Two possible solutions:
1. Power off the unit.
2.HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear onthe lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down andthe display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode messagedisappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).
3.Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button andyour device will perform some activites to recover from the aboveproblem.
According to your manual it says to holdfinger on bottom right hand side of screen while turning the unit on.Keep finger down until pop up screen appears and touch yes to clear alldata and all orginial settings will be restored.
If these two solutions won't help that means the system software has been moved out of the unit and you have to send it to Garmin for that because if you try to fix it yourself then the software version will be downgraded instead of being upgraded.
If you have any other queries then I would be glad to assist you further.
Hope I helped with the repair of your problem.
An Accept from you is how I get paid.
And a positive feed back tells me how I did with the repair.

Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550
