SOURCE: My Garmin Nuvi 255 died. How do I reset it?

Hello there:
If you unplug the unit and remove the battery
i would check the fuse inside the unit to be sure that it is ok if it is than
leave it unplugged and the batttery out for 30 min and if there is a reset button on this after the battery is removed hold in the reset in for 2 minutes then after the 30 min replace the battery and plug in the unit and try it again his should be enough time for the internal reset to reset it'self than just replace the battery and if this still oes not help remove the battery again and leave it sit for 1 hour to let the internal reset device reset it'self ok and you should be good to go
Hope this is very helpful
Best regards Michael

Hi,

On the very first screen after the GPS boots there will be an icon of a wrench at the bottom right of the screen. Press that Icon and scroll through the menu and you will find a language setting.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Garmin 255 needs updating. How is this task perfomed?


Hello,

The GPS units do not have a complete POI database that would include some of the Camps you are interested in. It is up to the camps to make sure they are in the systems. You can suppliment your POI's with free data from online sources such as my favorite www.poifriend.com

As for the roads you probably need an update. to ensure a road is in the next update please report the missing data to Navteq (www.navteq.com).

You can update your nuvi regularly using the new Garmin Lifetime map update subscription sold by GPS City.

I just purchased a Garmin nuvi 255, and the maps are inaccurate.


Just go to http://www.garmin.com There will be a registeration link. Yes I think that you will get a free mapupdate with your registeration at least they used to do that. You will need your unit serial number and model.
