If you zoom in, it will show more detail. This is to stop your screen from being so cluttered that you can't read it.

I have lost all my maps on my garmin nuvi 255W-


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.

Where to find operation manual for this unit


The manual for most Garmin products are available from their support site.

The direct link is http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/nuvi_1100_1200_1300_1400_OM.pdf .

If the direct link doesn't work, start here: https://buy.garmin.com/support/manuals/searchManuals.faces?refresh=true . Use the drop down menus to select On the Road, Automotive, nuvi 1300.

I hope this helps.

My garmin nuvi 255 stopped showing maps...??? do i have to pay for maps every year??


No - Maps are forever unless you toss them off.
Go to GARMIN - download their Download Manager and run it. Then update the firmware. Then reboot your GARIMN and reset it.

First hold the lower right like the thumb shows above.
Then - select YES
