Question about GPS

HI, My Garmin Nuvi 205W was updated to the latest software version with the ecodrive installed, since then I do not get any DEM mapping, it shows the DEM map, but it looks like a normal TOPO Map? How do I get to see the DEM maps correctly again? Other then that the unit is fine?

    Hi I have done the update several times and reset the unit to factory settings on numerous occasions, what is the possibility that a file is missing that shows the DEM mapping? Above 8km I can see DEM, but when I zoom in past 8km the DEM disappears and shows as a normal TOPO map

    Please see my comment that was posted, Rebooting or reloading the firmware does not help?

Up date map


In order to update your Garmin Nuvi 205W's system version, you'll need to download software which checks your unit's current version and updates it to the latest version. The current version available is 2.9.1.0 as of December, 2009. Garmin makes it easy by installing a browser plugin instead of having to install a software package. The WebUpdater plugin can be downloaded here:
http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

In order to install the plugin you must first agree to the license agreement. You will then need to close all of your open browsers that are open on your computer to finish the install. Once you have, the plugin will start to install. To finish the system update, Garmin lists several steps on a page;
  • Disconnect your 205W from your laptop or desktop and let it restart
  • Once you see the main screen, you can connect it back to your computer and wait 30 seconds.
  • On the next screen, click the 'Find Devices' button and then click the 'Next' button.
Once your computer finds your 205W and you initiate the update, the plugin will install the new system to your unit.

Hope helps.

How do i update my Nuvi 255W garmin GPS


To update your nuvi, all you need to do is to connect your nuvi to an internet connected computer and the updates will show on the lower left of your computers screen, click on it and it will update it with the latest software version and maps.
You can also go to your nuvis website and search for latest updates. Just click on the map link and a list will pop up under the map link, select update maps if it is maps you want to update. It will ask you to choose your device from a list, after choosing your nuvi 255w then it will show you the latest maps for your gps, but you have to install its plug ins first.
That is how to update your gps.

Ineed to update my garmin nuvi 205w series.


The instructions for updating your garmin satnav are available at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
When you update the maps the operating software is also updated. If you only want to update the software
  1. Connect your satnav to your computer.
  2. Download and install webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
  3. When webupdater is installed it'll search for updates to your operating software and install them if availiable.

Sorry, no free maps. I know I've tried. You either live with the old map or buy the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOUR Garmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.
