Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver

Open Question

I have a Garmin Nuvi 250 that shuts down right after loading maps

The system will show the Garmin symbol and say its loading maps, and then it goes black like it shuts down. If you hit the power switch again, it will run the same cycle.

    I am trying to work on that. I know I have power coming into the lighter, but I don't have anything small enough to check and see if I have power coming out of the cord. I am working on finding a way to test it and see if that is the problem.

    Are you sure that it's charged? Does it do this when connected to an external power source like the car adapter or AC wall charger? - Jim SHARCNET-USA

How instal maps on sd memori card for garmin nuvi 250


Hello

Insert the memory card into the memory card slot on Garmin Nuvi 250 GPS device. The memory card slot is located on the left side of the device. Push the card in until it clicks. (If you inserted a memory card that already has pre-installed maps and files, there is no further action required. The device will access the new maps based on the address you enter.)


Connect the Garmin GPS to the computer using the USB cable. The mini-USB connector will need to be inserted into the rear of the Nuvi 250; the larger end is inserted into the computer's USB port.


Locate the computer file that you want to download to the Garmin memory card. The Nuvi 250 is capable of reading JPEG formatted images and GPX formatted Waypoints and other mapping-related files. Right-click on it. Select "Copy."


Select the "Computer" folder from the computer's desktop Start menu. Double-click on the "Removable Disk" drive that represents the Garmin Nuvi.


Right-click in an empty space within the drive and select "Paste." The files have now downloaded to the memory card and will be accessible through the Nuvi 250 menu options.


Good Luck, and do rate the solution if got help

Garmin just shows its loading maps and then screen goes blank and it repeats this even when I hold down the button for 10 seconds to reboot Why is it not turning on?


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Hello, take the sd card out of the unit, press the reset button if one is available, if not hold the on/off button for 10 seconds and then reinstall the sd card and switch the unit back on and hopefully the maps should reload

I want t travel accross europe and do not have full addresses to enter into my garmin nuvi 250 please could you tell me how to do this Lynn


The nuvi 270 is the model that comes with pre-loaded maps of europe. The nuvi 250 only has North America. You can find the right maps on Garmin at: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/buymaps.do

You can purchase all of europe or select areas which are $50 dollars cheaper.

Garmin nuvi 250 mapsource


Verify that you have the correct basemap for the country that you are in. There are two maps inside a new Garmin. The basemap which shows all the major highways and mapsource which shows all the street. If you don't have the correct basemap try changing 'Navigation' Advoidance to avoid highways and Toll Roads.
