Here's the links to the manual and quick start guide for your GPS unit.

  1. Owner's Manual, Rev. A, Sep, 2008 | Download
  2. Quick Start Manual, Rev. E, Jul, 2008 | Download
Your unit has to be able to locate 4 satellites before it will read correctly. It can take up to 30 minutes to do this.

If you take a 30 minute drive with the unit on, it will locate itself. Thereafter, it will only take a minute or two to locate.

If you found this information helpful, please rate my answer with a big thumbs-up. Thanks!

Hi - I own a Garmin Nuvi 260w. Is it possible to use the SD card to download a trucker navigation road map and upload this to my Garmin Nuvi 260w? Thanks for your response.


Hello,

It is possible as long as the map is Garmin compatible.
However even with a trucker navigation map installed, the nuvi 260w will not function as a trucking GPS as the routing and IQ of the nuvi 260w does not have the capability to operate in this manner.
The nuvi 260w does not have a trucking mode to allow for the input of specific truck information like truck and trailer length and gross vehicle weight to use as factors on determining the best route for the specific truck/trailer combination.
I would recommend using a GPS specifically designed for trucking like the Garmin Dezl.

Garmin 260w won't update.


Just for the heck of it try using a completely different computer, install the garmin update software and see what happens. If the same thing happens then the issue is with your Garmin and not the computer.

We just used our Garmin nuvi 260w for a trip. From Az to CA it was telling us to exit off every off ramp. It was trying to get us to california using side streets. Is there something we can do so it will...


Press the wrench/tools symbol at the main menu. The select "SYSTEM", make sure you have the "Automobile" mode selected.  Any other will try to take you on every non-freeway route it can.

Nuvi 260w system software missing on sreen when open


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Update your 260 to the newest software, which is what I think your asking??

To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.


Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.
