Can I mute or lower the volume on my nuvi 265T without going to the main menu?

If you go to the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP there's a speaker icon in the bottom right corner. You touch the speaker and it brings you to the screen where you can adjust the volume or mute it. I don't know if that's what you mean by the main menu but I'm afraid it's the shortest way to adjusting the volume.

Why map disapears and picture of computer&gps reciver apears when you plug the charger or usb connector to charge it so its not possible to navigate

It sounds like your basic operating system may have become corrupt in some manner. The picture of the GPS and computer should normally only appear when you connect your GPS to your computer. This will normally let you know that your GPS is synchronized to your computer and is ready for you to copy material over from your computer to your GPS. You can try to reset the GPS to see if that will resolve the issue. There is a reset button on the bottom of your GPS. Turn on your GPS. Then using something that does not have a sharp point, depress the reset button for several seconds, about 10-12 should do it. Your GPS should reset itself and come up with the normal loading screen. If you still have the problem then what you can do is go to the Garmin website and download and install the unit software. If you are unable to connect to your GPS with your computer as it normally would you may have to contact Garmin support to find out how you can reload your unit software.

The GPS just shows a picture of computer on it. I guess it means to update it, but my computer doesn't read it.

If it won't connect then you may have a problem with the nuvi, the cable or the port. To nail down which one try connecting it to a different computer. All you are looking for is that it is recognized so you can try this on any machine that is handy. If that doesn't change anything then you need to check if the cable is good or bad. The best way is to just substitute a different cable. One way of checking without buying a cable is to call a computer store etc and ask if you can bring it in to see if the cable is good. You can try it on one of their computers and if that doesn't work you can try one of their cables. All you are doing is seeing if the computer sees the nuvi. As long as it knows something is there even if it doesn't know what to do with it thats ok. If it knows its there then we know the cables and nuvi are fine. If thats the case then the port of your pc may be the problem.

If the nuvo itself proves to be the problem then you would have to send it into Garmin itself for repair. You can update or add maps onto the sd memory card using a card reader on a laptop or desktop so as long as the unit is working and can find out where it is you still have options if you don;t want to send it in.

Garmin Nuvi 660 touch screen freezes up. Soft

I sat on the phone for 30 minutes waiting for Garmin support when my Nuvi suddenly had no touch screen response. They had me delete a file on the device (with it hooked to my computer) then reboot and it went thru a touch screen alignment and it worked.

Sadly, it has frozen again and I don't recall the file (it had been a GCD file in all caps, that is all I know and I don't see a file in all caps any more). I will be calling support tomorrow.

My take is that it *is* a firmware thing *and* there is some way to reset the firmware.
