Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver
I have a Garmin Nuvi 255W and recently vacationed in the USA. It was working fine while I was in Canada and until I stopped for gas in Maine. When I started the car again the Nuvi was dead. I knew it couldn't be the battery because it was plugged into the cigarette lighter the whole time. There isn't any buttons on the GPS so I couldn't reset the thing. It wasn't until I got back in Canada that it worked again. I was told that it was preloaded with North American maps so what's wrong? Even if it didn't have U.S. maps, it should have still gotten power.
Hmmm did you put the 2010 map on it from garmin? I know when they first released this file there was a problem with it that did very strange things in parts of canada and the usa. I would recommend going to garmin's website and seeing if this is the problem. plug the device into your computer and see if it has a firmware upgrade it is ready for.
