System software missing garmin 250w

If the unit indicates "software/firmware missing", then you can only try to re-install firmware by running WebUpdater again. If it doesn't work, then the unit has to be sent to service to have it re-flashed.

Nuvi 350 System Software Missing

If you have a nuvi 350 download the software to your computer and then load the software onto a formatted sd card. Insert the sd card and bootup the Nuvi 350. The sofware will then load onto the Nuvi 350. If you have a Nuvi 200 I would think it works the same but I have not tried it.
Hope this helps

Unit tells me system software missing

Tried to download an update and lost all maps - now nothing on Garmin NUVI except 'System software missing'

What can I do - I have tried everything on the website - why do Garmin make it so complicated?
