You probably need to update the unit at their website. In the meantime, you can try the reset button There is one, but it's kind of stealth - it's on the angled edge of the bottom of the device, in a square "hole". Pressing the corner of the screen resets user data only, not the actual device. Good luck!

May I recommend performing a 'Hard Reset' (different from the reset button), or replacing the firmware of your Nuvi 205?

Both actions have been known to solve the symptoms you are reporting.

Garmin Nuvi 205 screen freezes


When a Garmin Nuvi 205 stops working or behaves strangely, there are two steps you can take yourself to try and get it going again:

  1. Perform a Hard Reset,
  2. Run WebUpdater to reinstall that firmware.

I hope that helps.

My Garmin says no detailed maps found that support routing? It will not go away and the reset I tried didn't work. ???


Did you try a Hard Reset, or just push the button on the bottom of your Garmin Nuvi 205?

Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

My Garmin Nuvi 205 just has a blank white screen. I just took it out of the box and read the directions and plugged it in for the first time. I've hit the reset button.

Touchscreen not responding.


There are three levels of fixes, please try them in order:
1. Reset the GPS using the Reset button, on the back, just under the Antenna Hinge. Resetting will turn off the GPS, and then turn it back on, if connected to power. Test, if fixed, great, otherwise, go to fix 2.
2. Turn the power off, then press and hold the powerbutton for up to 2 minutes. The GPS will turn on, and display a "PreBoot Mode" message. When that message disappears, and the screen calibration screen appears, follow the on-screen instructions, and you are fixed. If you still cannot use the touch screen, repeat fixes 1 and 2 several times, just to be sure., then go to fix 3
3. The touch-screen glass has probably broken or lost its connection with the GPX motherboard. You can order new touch screen glass on the web and install yourself, if you are techy in nature, otherwise do a search for "garmin nuvi 660 repair" and choose your service.

GPS would not turn on


Have you already tried the webupdater or registred the device on garmin.com? There you should get an free mapupdate which could replace your broken maps.
