Garmin shows only device being reloaded/recharged


Hello,

When the device shows that it is hooked up to a larger device, it is in mass storage or data mode and usually will do this when connected to a computer to receive map and software updates.
This will also happen if the Nuvi is connected with an incompatible cable.
Using the correct vehicle power cable will remedy this.
The Nuvi 300 is an old GPS and should probably be replaced with a newer model.

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.

Cant acquire satellite


first thing you need to do, is make sure the battery is fully charged. a low battery will cause slow down or prevent the satellites from linking up to your nuvi.

whether that cures the problem or not, go HERE and download the Garmin Web updater and install it on your computer and once the program is running, hook up you nuvi via the usb cable to your computer. the updater will find any available updates for your nuvi automaticly.

no sense searching the garmin site for something that may or may not be there when the updater does it for you.

Need to update my garmin Nuvi


I went to the web site. For a update there wasnt much of one. Its a firmware update. And you need to have the unit hooked to the computer. Mine automatally went to the site and got a list of things you could update, but in my case there was nothing to download. But the web site for the GPS has all of the answers

Update problem with Garmin Nuvi 255w


I had same problem. I called Garmin customer service who connected me to a computer rep. Garmin hooks with your computer that you have your Garmin plugged into.They can upload the proper software in no time at all.
The rep told me that after I updated my Garmin I might have turned off the unit before it completed updating the new software. You need to wait until the screen with "Where to?" appears.
It works great now. Prepare to wait on hold for a while. I waited just over an hour on Monday, their busiest day.

My laptop won't show my Nuvi 680 as a mass storage device


I have a couple of ideas based on the information you gave:
1. That Nuvi has an SD card slot.  If your PC has a memory card reader, you could insert an SD card into the machine, copy whatever you want onto that, and then pop the card into the Nuvi.  
2.  While the Nuvi is hooked up to the PC goto the hardware device manager (In XP right click -> My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware tab -> Device manager) and see if anything has an ! or a ? next to it.  If so, that's probably related to your Nuvi and resolving that usually involves reinstalling the driver or updating to the latest driver.
More detailed info on what you're trying to do and the result of the above could get a more specific fix.
