I was just hoping no other user of your product believed these directions. I knew they were wrong, so had no problem. I thought you were interested in helping your customers, but, all i see is that you want money.

My garmin nuvi 205 gets stuck on loading maps and when i try to hard reset it freezes when the do you realy want to reset shows up and i cannot press yes. any suggestions?

If you're lucky, it's a software problem. I say "lucky" because if it is, you can probably fix it yourself for free. Here's how. Try this; you have nothing to lose:

You'll need a USB cable to connect the Garmin to your computer. With the Nuvi turned off, connect the USB cable. The Nuvi should automatically turn itself on in "computer" mode. Then go to
On the website, first follow their directions to register your product if you didn't do that when you bought it. Then look for "Support" and follow their directions for updating your software.

Then give it a try. If it still doesn't work, there's a hardware problem, and you'll need to send it somewhere to get it repaired.

Not able to get directions to maryland from new jersey

... but local NJ directions are working? You may only have a New Jersey map installed. If that's the problem, you can solve it by going to Garmin's web site, and buying a map of North America. You'll need to connect your Garmin to your computer with a USB cable. These map files are very, very large, so expect it to take several hours to download and install the new maps even over a fast internet connection.

Hi, my 760 had the same problem, and a stutter when speaking street names. I fixed both by upgrading the software to v4.60 using the Garmin Webupdater.
