Re: Garmin 2610

The clicking sound is most likely the Cornice 2GB hard drive going bad. The only solution is return it to Garmin for repair. They will send you a refurbished unit with the lastest maps.

Or you can sell the unit and buy a new Nuvi. The new units uses flash memory.

This seems to be a common problem. Garmin says hardware failure. Someone says clean around the edge of the screen with an electric razor brush. Try this and let us know.... See other problem posted elseware Same problem....

How do i reset my garmin nuvi 200w satnav it says no detailed maps found how can i reinstall them

Locate the reset button, located on the back of the device, in the lower left corner. Remove the sticker covering the button, and use a straightened paper clip to depress the tab.

To reinstall maps

Connect your Garmin Nuvi to your computer via USB cable. You can only update the maps through connecting to your computer.

Open the "myGarmin" website and sign in with your Garmin account. Make sure to sign in with the account that you've purchased the map updates on.

heres a link to the site;

Click the "myMaps" tab on the myGamrin dashboard. This will load a list of all of your purchased map upgrades.

Click the drop-down menu in the "Recent Map Purchases" section. Select your Garmin Nuvi from the list of devices.

Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin when prompted. This is required in order for the Garmin website to transfer the map files to your Gamrin software on your computer.

Download and install Garmin Express. This is the program that allows your computer to interact with your Garmin Nuvi.

Register your device in Garmin Express. If you haven't already registered your device, you'll be prompted to when you start Garmin Express. You'll need to register in order to update the maps.

Click the "Updates" tab in Garmin Express. This will show all of the available updates for your Nuvi, including the new map update you just purchased.

Click the "Show Details" option next to your Map Update. Click the "Install" button that appears. You will need to accept the agreement before the update installs.

Wait for the maps to download and install. Once you agree to the terms, the map update will begin downloading to Garmin Express, and will then be transferred to your Nuvi. This will likely take several minutes to complete.

Close Garmin Express and unplug the Nuvi when the update is complete. The Nuvi will reboot and begin installing the updated software on the device. This may take another couple of minutes.

If you weren't automatically prompted to install Garmin Express, you can download it from

My garmin nuvi 255w keeps freezing up at loading maps screen...i have tried the hard reset but that doesn't work, when i push on the bottom right corner and start the gps, it doesn't even make it...

There is a hard reset button under the sticker at the bottom of the unit. It is located directly under the check mark on the sticker. Once you get it going fully charge the unit then go to the Garmin website and register and update your 255w. I will attach the link to the Garmin Site. Thanks for using FixYa

Where can i download the philippines map for my garmin nuvi 255W, including street map?

You need to have your satnav registered with garmin. Log into myGarmin and click on the myMaps tab at the top of the screen. If you don't already have a map of the Philippines click on "buy more maps" and follow the prompts. If you already have a map that you just want to update you can get details of how to update it at
You can also get details there of how to register your satnav with garmin if you haven't already done so.

Please note that if this is not an update it's unlikely that your nuvi 255W will have enough space to hold a second map. If you're not updating or replacing a map I would advise against buying it as a second map. It is possible to install a second map to a memory card but there is a risk that it may not work. Memory cards in garmin satnavs appear to be very hit and miss. Some work and others don't for no aparent reason.

If your garmin came with lifetime map updates you will get them for free. The normal updates for your unit that makes it perform better are all free. You will need to install a program on Garmins website called web updater that will look for updates for your unit for you. But first you need to set up a account on Garmins web site. Click the link below or copy and paste it into your web browser.

When you get to Garmins web page look at the upper right hand corner of the page where it says My Garmin click on that and set up your account from there you can then download the web updater software and purchase new maps or update your maps if your entitled for free maps.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a Yes I was helped on the page your reading this email on. Thank you.

Cracked screen

Garmin has an excellent repair program. Go to Click on the Support Tab and you will be presented with a menu. Select Register Product from that page. You will next be asked to create a Garmin account. After you create an account you can then get to the repair page. They will repair you GPS for a reasonable Flat Rate regardless what is wrong with the GPS. Hope this helps you. Plus by registering you will get a free map update one time. Do not do this update until you get your GPS back.

Thanks for using
