    I have had the same problem. I am missing the letter L and the letter T and I have 2 letter H's. I feel like I am playing Wheel of Fortune. How can I reset or fix this problem?

    Mine is missing the k and s and two I s appear on my screen; is this a common problem with these cheaper versions?

    I was missing the letter E. I reset the unit and it is now missing the letters R and G (which is actually slightly better than missing an E).

I called Garmin customer service and they told me to plug the unit into my computer and it would reset itself and all the letters would be restored. I did this and it worked! I realize the usb cable does not come with the Garmin nuvi 250, however you may have a cable that came with a cell phone or a digital camera. My camera cable worked great.

I had the same problem. Almost 5-10 letter were missing. It got worse progressively. I finally installed the software update affter downloading from Garmin website. That solved the problem!

Missing letters from my alphabet


You will most likely need a firmware upgrade from this website to fix the problem: http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
It will walk you through the steps and your letters should be back to normal after the update.

Letters on keyboard


Hi,
looks like your touch screen is faulty . it could just be dust / dirt under the edges of the screen. If dust is trapped under the edge , it can effectivly be pressing the screen a little causing letetr to change or dissapear. See if you can get to clean under and around the edges , if the cleanup doesn't work then most likely cause is a faulty touch screen which will need replacing. Good luck.

My garmin nuvi 250 special edition comes up with a scrambled alphabet. Some duplication and some letters missing and one blank space. A@BDEFG @ JKHMN MPQRPTU VWXXZ Can it somehow be reset,...


Hey... I found a USB cable that fit my Nuvi and then downloaded updated system software from Garmin's support site. It included a bug fix for corrupted keyboards. After running the update, it works! My keyboard is all correct again.

Keyboard corrupt


Me three. Just happened today. The keyboard is missing letters. I'm in the process of letting the battery die and see if that will serve as a hard reset, which it seems like it needs.
