SOURCE: Nuvi 350 System Software Missing

Try this: Hold the power buuton down, you will see on the lower screen the word "Pre Booting - ". Keep holding the power button for about 60 second, then you will see on the lower screen "Booting".
This time, release power button; system will reboot and loading map... again.
I got the same problem, after research on the web. Nick 99990_0 had post this solution on (his Nuvi 660) but it work for my Nuvi 350 too. Good luck.

SOURCE: update problem with Garmin Nuvi 255w

I had same problem. I called Garmin customer service who connected me to a computer rep. Garmin hooks with your computer that you have your Garmin plugged into.They can upload the proper software in no time at all.
The rep told me that after I updated my Garmin I might have turned off the unit before it completed updating the new software. You need to wait until the screen with "Where to?" appears.
It works great now. Prepare to wait on hold for a while. I waited just over an hour on Monday, their busiest day.

All Garmin users,

There is no easy solution for this except to return your unit to the nearest Garmin outlet. You need to have very special equipment called an E-Prom burner or writer which only Garmin have. With this equipment they re-programmed (restore) the operating system back on your specific Garmin unit and model.

The problem why anybody can't do it is because there is no way you can access your Garmin unit from a pc or mac if the operating system is lost or damage on your Garmin, for the simple reason your pc or mac can't reconize the device that is pluged in, because there are no communication platform between the two devices.

As simple as that, life with it or send your Garmin gps to an autherized professional Garmin dealer.

My sd card is missing on my Garmin Approach G5 Touchscreen Golf GPS. What do I do

You almost certainly do not need it. If your map list is not showing or if it locked try this:
Firstly, please connect your device to a computer. You will find a folder in the device called 'Garmin'. In this folder will be multiple files that start with the phrase 'gmap'.
Please delete the files starting with 'gmap'.
Once you have done this, please re-load the courses on your device using the Garmin CourseView updater which can be found here:

Approach G3 - when I power up the word Garmin displays but the screen flickers about every 5 seconds and nothing else happens. It will not turn off without removing a battery.

Welcome to FixYa.

Most of the causes of this kind of problem pertains to unstable operating software.

Update the internal operating software of your Garmin device.
  • Download and install the Garmin WebUpdater from this link
  • Select the appropriate version of the WebUpdater based on your computer's operating system
  • Click "I agree to the above terms and want to proceed to the download page"
  • Connect your Gamin Device to the computer.
  • Click Download
  • Select Run when the pop up box appears
  • Select Run if a message appears asking "Do you want to run this software?"
  • Click Next when the WebUpdater installation page appears
  • Check the box to accept the licensing terms and select Next
  • Select Done to complete the WebUpdater download
  • Once WebUpdater is installed on your computer, select the application, if it does not automatically open, to run the program and follow these prompts:
  • Select Next on the WebUpdater Wizard
  • Select Find Device and Next
  • Select Next to update the unit software on your device
  • Follow the prompts to complete the process
  • Once you have updated your device, you will be prompted to search for additional updates. To load any additional updates, check the box next to the specific updates you wish to download. Select anything that relates to firmware and GPS software.
  • Once selected, click Next and check the Agreement box. At this point the updates will run directly to your Garmin device.
  • Once the update is complete you will see a box showing the downloads and if they were a success.
  • Click Finish and unplug your Garmin from the computer to allow the updates to load.
  • Once the update(s) are loaded, your device will return to the normal agreement screen and it will be ready to operate.
  • Some products will shut off after the update is complete. Turn the device back on to continue if this occurs.

Keep me posted.

Garmin nuvi system software missing 265W i try to update my garmin nuvi 260. I see on the screen: sytem software missing. I cannot do anything else. Please, help!

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
