Touch screen doesn't work

Have you tried the screen recalibration; by touching the upper right of the screen for 30 seconds or so while turning on the unit. This usually cures the problem.
Next try; sliding the "Power" key to the left position and hold it for eight to ten seconds to reset the Garmin. I have attached a link to the Garmin manuals for your 255W.
Once you get it going you should update your unit also at the Garmin site. The updates will fix the software glitches.

My garmin nuvi 255w keeps freezing up at loading maps screen...i have tried the hard reset but that doesn't work, when i push on the bottom right corner and start the gps, it doesn't even make it...

There is a hard reset button under the sticker at the bottom of the unit. It is located directly under the check mark on the sticker. Once you get it going fully charge the unit then go to the Garmin website and register and update your 255w. I will attach the link to the Garmin Site. Thanks for using FixYa

I can not get Garmin Webupdater to update my Garmin..model 885T

There are two solutions to get your Garmin Nuvi 885T running smoothly again. I have posted detailed directions in the Tips section of this Fixya website. Follow these two links to find step by step instructions on how to perform both the hard reset and the software upgrade.

The software upgrade does run independently of the Webupdater, but in regards to your 'slow internet connection' the file size of this Garmin update is almost 50 Mb.

I hope that helps.

Garmin Nuvi 260w not recognized by computer

Take a look at this site, Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550

Pop the face off to reset it, could sort it for you.
Press the power button for over 1 minute to calibrate the screen
and use the Garmin Web-updater to update the software.

Garmin 205w wont find satellites

Hi, Please check to make sure the GPS is set to USA and your time zone etc do this in the tools menu, then see if it will load the map.
check for updates @ ""
you can also download a manual at if needed.

Make sure you are clear nearby buildings, depends on satellites currently visible, and the length of time your GPS has been on.these may have an affect on getting a satellite signal but mostly they are suppose work just fine.

You may need a car adapter with a reciever in it.they cost about $119.00 at bestbuy. ouch! e know if this helped at all.

I would try to exchange it for a new one, it hasnt been that long that you have it.
Hope this helps, let me know what happened. good luck!
