I have lost all my maps on my garmin nuvi 255W-


Do a hard reset on your GPS. Download and install Garmin Express from Garmin. Plug your GPS into your computer. The software will identify your GPS and allow you to download new maps to it.

I want to delete old contacts from my garmin nuvi 42 lm


If you do the online update (plug a USB cable into a computer and go to http://software.garmin.com/en-US/express.html) the update deletes all your old bookmarks and addresses. Plus you get updated maps.
Don't be in a hurry, though, because it can take a while to download the new maps.
Other than that, download the owner's manual from garmin.com and see what it says.

Garmin nuvi 610 memory full


You can attach the unit to your computer and then delete some information like extra voices, languages, help files, pictures, etc. You can also delete from the gps menu old locations and favorites.
Make sure you make a copy of everything first before you delete anything.

My Garmin 1490LMT won't turn on. At first all I got was the Garmin logo and then that went away and it won't even turn on.


Try a hard reset,the Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.
  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit
  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  3. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.
  4. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences
Then make sure the unit is fully charged,then go to the Garmin site and register your product. Then download Garmin Updater and connect your unit with a usb cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

Trying to register it can't get in my old acc we got a new one


Getting a new account should do the job for you. Getting a new account is a smart decision you made. Kudos to you.
One tip i believe should help is that, you can delete the garmin nuvi software that is on your computer, then you reinstall the software, using the disc that came with it or you download the software from the internet. That way it will require you to create an account for your nuvi that the software on your computer will recognize, that way, registration will be much easier.

In attempting to unsuccessfully download maps on Garmin for a NUVI 255W, I am now receiving an error screen on my Garmin: No detailed maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot be used without them....


Ok I had same problem. Copy the mapupdater .exe file to another computer with internet access. Connect your GPS and then run the updater file. This worked for me. Good luck

Garmin Nuvi710 phone book detail does not match phone contacts


I can help you with the phone numbers on your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

The phone numbers transferred to your Nuvi are only supposed to be available when your phone is paired to your cell phone. Changing the entry on your phone should allow that entry to show up changed the next time it is paired with the Nuvi. Sometimes, a bluetooth mix up causes entries to be duplicated or entries' phone numbers to get repeated.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data (this hard reset will remove the phonebook info from your nuvi), and then updating your Nuvi' firmware to make sure the nuvi and cell phone bluetooth process runs as smoothly as possible in the future.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Garmin nuvi won't turn on


folks, the garmins have an on-board battery that needs to be powered up (at least occasionally) via the usb port - like from your computer. just using the dc car power cord does nothing for this battery. i've had this exact same problem on both my 760 and 780 nuvi units. fixed it using the usb charge. seems to run down differently for all the various nuvi models. my regular charge will hold for 7 hours on my old 660, my 760 and 780 work about 5 hours. my 'power up' failed on the 660 after 10 months with no internal battery charge, but the 7xx models only took about 5-6 months to 'fail.' hope this helps. jack b :-) in midland, tx usa
