My nevi 2595 shows only touch dot and will not do anything else. If you touch it the dot moves to another area on the screen

It looks like you are in the calibration mode ... just touch every dot and after a few times it will go back to the menu ... as usual.

I updated my garmin nuvi255 and it only shows usa maps, now I lost all of Canada

When you update the unit you are given selections based upon how much memory is available on your unit. With each map release, the map sizes become larger. On the 2xx series, you may not have had enough memory to have both the US and Canada map, so it probably only installed the lower 48 states. You will need to install the map on an SD card in order to have both maps on the unit.

Hi, I have a Nuvi 255 (205 series) gps, three years old. Last week the screen went blank, came back grey with 'crosshairs' and a black dot in the middle indicating 'press here'. I did so and the dot moved...

Graham - what your describing sounds like you somehow managed to erase the street level maps and POIs in your Nuvi.

If you connect the GPS to the computer with your USB cable, you should at the contents of the Nuvi directories and find a file called GMAPPROM.IMG or GMAPSUPP.IMG. These are the street level map files. Generally, these are found in the root directory of the Nuvi - or if yours has / and you use a memory card slot for maps - find it in the /GARMIN directory. GMAPPROM.IMG is the name of the first map set and GMAPSUPP.IMG is the name of the supplementary or second map set (if you purchased & installed one). You will likely have only one of these files - and may be named either. The size of this file depends on the area and age of the map. Current maps of the entire US run over 1 GB in size. If you do not have any maps named GMAPPROM or GMAPSUPP, you will not see any street level maps.

Something happened to delete the maps. Garmin will probably NOT provide free replacement maps for you, unless under warranty. If the devices is trashing maps and other files, you probably want to replace the unit under warranty or not. Garmin will, upon return of your old Nuvi - replace it with a factory refurbished unit with the latest maps installed, for $79. You can take advantage of this service by following this link to Garmin Service.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

I've download couple of things but it seem that is not what i've

Most of the GPS companies only offer support on maps if you pay for a subscription service. The company that made mine wants $79.95 quarterly. For me, the roads don't change that much. If you need daily updates for traffic detours and such, you'll probably have to pay extra.

Garmin nuvi

Different parts of the screen do different things depending on the mode you're in. When you touch "speed" the trip screen appears as you've already noted. The 'Driving" icon does nothing until you've asked the GPS to take you someplace.

After you enter a route the "speed" icon changes to "arrival" (which will still bring up the trip screen) and the 'driving' icon will change to "Turn In." Touching "Turn In" will bring up a list of turns along with a small portion of the map (showing that particular turn) anytime you've entered a route.

Note you can also press the green banner on top of the map when you have a route set. You'll see a list of just the turns and the distance to each. Touching each of those turn boxes will show you the split screen offered after you touched the "turn in" button.

Go to the home location where you originally set the pin. Make sure the antenna is up and turn the unit on.

When your at the home location where you set the pin, you won't be asked for the pin and you'll be able to change the pin to whatever you want.

Please be advised that if you can't remember the home location, you'll need to contact Garmin for a solution.

There are too many of these units being stolen from vehicles and the thieves are trying to obtain the passwords on this site.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
