Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205.

This should allow your computer to recognize it again so that your can use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

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.

Would you like to back up a copy of your Garmin Nuvi 205W Favorites and Waypoints?

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After a hard reset or loss of data, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
I hope that helps.

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.

Nuvi 205W keeps rebooting.


Your unit most likely has a firmware error, which could be due to a corrupt file. To solve it you yourself can try to update the firmware when connecting to the pc, if the unit cannot stay on enough for this to be performed, your unit will have to be sent in to service.

I deleted files in garmin 205W now I lost voice and languages


I also had this problem while trying to register a Nuvi 205W. I talked to someone at Garmin tech support and found that I was using USB cable that was only meant to plug in to my computer to recharge the unit. I have now sent for a data transmission USB cable, will see if that solves the problem when it arrives. Hope this helps.
