I'm not 100% certain, but I don't think it has a blue tooth transceiver built in. But, correct me if I'm wrong...please, I have one also and would love to have blue tooth.

Hi - I own a Garmin Nuvi 260w. Is it possible to use the SD card to download a trucker navigation road map and upload this to my Garmin Nuvi 260w? Thanks for your response.


Hello,

It is possible as long as the map is Garmin compatible.
However even with a trucker navigation map installed, the nuvi 260w will not function as a trucking GPS as the routing and IQ of the nuvi 260w does not have the capability to operate in this manner.
The nuvi 260w does not have a trucking mode to allow for the input of specific truck information like truck and trailer length and gross vehicle weight to use as factors on determining the best route for the specific truck/trailer combination.
I would recommend using a GPS specifically designed for trucking like the Garmin Dezl.

Would you like to erase the phonebook entries on your Garmin Nuvi 255W, left over from when you bluetooth paired with your cell phone?

I can help you delete the phone numbers on your Garmin Nuvi 255W.

The phone numbers transferred to your Nuvi are only supposed to be available when your phone is paired to your cell phone. Changing the entry on your phone should allow that entry to show up changed the next time it is paired with the Nuvi. Sometimes, a bluetooth mix up causes entries to be duplicated or entries' phone numbers to get repeated.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data (this hard reset will remove the phonebook info from your nuvi), and then updating your Nuvi' firmware to make sure the nuvi and cell phone bluetooth process runs as smoothly as possible in the future.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Nuvi 255W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 255W WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

    How do i get free update maps for my garmin nuvi 260w car gps


    've looked for free map upgrades for my Garmin and could not find anything. I did find a lifetime map upgrade deal for around $75. It allows you unlimited upgrades for as long as you own the GPS. Go to the garmin site and search NUMaps.
    Go to the Garmin web site & register and that will allow you to upgrade the maps to current. You will also need to use a USB cable and install the software for your Garmin before you can do so.

    Cannot save direcctions to my gharmin 260w


    Unfortunately the Garmin Nuvi 260W lacks the capability to save a route. If you are looking for a unit with great Trip Planning (route saving) features, the new Garmin Nuvi 3790T is a great option. I am currently using one and I love it.

    Cheers

    Can a Garmin 260W support marine maps?


    The marine maps can be used on a Nuvi 260W but the detail ranges from very poor to none at all. The Nuvi line wasn't designed with marine maps in mind. You will can see the coastal outlines but most of the objects and depth markers will not show.
