Not quite 100% sure what your description of the problem is saying.

If it isn't the auto shutoff but is when you tell it to follow a route or other function the problem is most likely a corrupted map or part of the map.
If it is brand new don't mess with it take it back. If it were out of warrenty you would have to reset or reload the map. It's not a major problem but for a brand new unit it just shouldn't happen. Garmin makes pretty good units so don't get discouraged by one being wonky.

Check the battery. If the supply from the battery to GPS go below a certain level, this kind of fault can occur. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. Do a search by type in the brand name of your device at its search box.

I swtched garmin sat nav off on the power say off by accident so now please how do i switch my sat nav on?


Simply switch it back on using the same switch. If this does not work press the reset button,see your device handbook for its location. I turn on my satnav to set the routing and after it has finished calculating the route i tend to turn it off again. When i come to unfamilliar area I turn iit back on and it picks up the satalites faster and carries on from that point. You should be able to turn on and off at will anyway.

Garmin 255W will not power on. The screen will flash the Garmin product screen and beep, but will never turn on. Its just over a year old. Any ideas?


I don't have this model, but have you tried charging the battery up before you attempt to switch it on? My sat nav will not switch on if the battery has died, just wondered if yours is the same. When mine was new the first thing I had to do was charge the battery (similar to a new mobile phone). This is worth a try.

Wont calculat route


sat nav needs a valid gps signal to start calculating route, even if it found entered address. Address is searched on built-in map, not live gps position. That means, sat nav may have problem with gps signal. Try to reset device to its factory settings first. hope this helps
