Yes you can,Connect your nuvi to a computer using a USB cable.The computer must be on for the nuvi to charge.A camera USB cable can be used to do this,or any USB cable that fits both the nuvi and USB port on the computer.

Rebooting my garmin thru the computer


Hello,

Rebooting the Garmin Nuvi 255W is done when disconnected to external sources of power or connection to the computer.
The computer connection is used to transfer map data and software updates to the GPS.
The software updates are done using the Garmin WebUpdater program.

You will need to send it in to Garmin along with a copy of your receipt to prove ownership, and they will reload the software and maps. There may be a charge for this service.

How to connect my garmin nuvi 255w to a computer


To connect the Garmin 255w you will need a usb cable. If you don't have one that came with it you can check all your other electronic devices like camera, camcorder,mp3 player etc..( my mp3 player usb cable worked fine). Carefully and gently try each one. One you get a usb cable connect it directly to a usb port on your computer and not thru a usb hub. then go over to the Garmin site and register the unit and download Garmin updater to update your unit. I am attaching the Garmin link for you. Thanks for using FixYa

Stim Card was stolen can I get it replaced


The SD card for the 255w is to add additional storage memoy to the gps. The actual maps are stored on the device memory itself. if you need a new SD card, you can buy one anywhere at any electronics store or Walmart for that matter.. The 255w does not us a sim card like a phone does. If you need to reload the map to your device, you will have to go thru Garmin, download it to your computer, then upload it toyour Garmin via the USB cable.

My Garmin 255W does not appear in removable device in my computer of my PC(XP). Almost of FAQ page did not help this problem. Only power charging was done through USB.


To correct colicky behavior in your Garmin Nuvi 255W, I recommend performing a hard reset, and running Garmin Webupdater to reload the firmware of your device.

I hope that helps.
