Need to update maps on my garmin nuvi 205


If you are referring to updating the firmware, you should go to Garmin's website, www.garmin.com and download the WebUpdater software first. Once that is installed, plug your unit into your computer and then run the software.

How to Perform a Hard Reset of your Garmin Nuvi 205 and 205W

Does your Garmin Nuvi 205 or 205W Freeze at Loading Maps?
Does it lock up or stop working?

This tip will describe how to perform a hard reset of the device, and how to backup your 'Favorites' in case the hard reset erases them. The next step in fixing your Nuvi when it doesn't start properly is to update its system software using Garmin WebUpdater.

A hard reset (or Clear All User Data)has been known to resolve unit quirks and strange behavior after firmware updates. It's generally recommended to perform it after a firmware update but is not required by any means. However, if you're seeing quirks and strange behavior with your unit after the firmware update, it is a good idea to do a hard reset of the unit. It's also one of the first things that Garmin will have you do when contact tech support regarding quirky unit behavior.

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

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 beread from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on theNuvi 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. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.


You have now performed a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 205 and 205W.

I hope that helps.

What is the OS of Garmin Nuvi 205 Sat Nav, will it accept map like Igo 8 or other maps


No, Garmin units are set to proprietary mapping so you have to use Garmin or Garmin-compatible maps.

Nuvi 205 can't unlock maps after North America 2010 download.


FIXED:
Got a response from Garmin that didn't help much. Called Garmin today and asked to be matched with a software person for a "xml map" problem. They are aware of this problem, and will be able to remote into your computer and fixed it for you.

The problem is that the installer will install us and canada maps, when the 205 cannot support the canada maps. The old 205s didnt have as much storage space, so the installed never transferred over canada. The new 205s have twice as much storage, and the installer thinks it is helping you out. They will be working on a new installer, until then a Support rep needs to run some batch files to fix the issue.

I formatted garmin nuvi 205


You have not only erased all of your maps but you have also erased all of the internal software that was a part of your Garmin. I do not recall seeing anything on the web site that resolves your issue. If you can get a hold of another 205 perhaps you can make an image file of its software and then transfer that over to yours.

Garmin nuvi 200w map update 2009


Delete all the vehicles and voices that you don't use as well.

Btw, beware that the "City Navigator Lower 49 States+PR NT 2010.10, Deluxe, Apr 09" for nuvi 200/205 is BUSTED, it probably will not work (I just spent 2+hrs on the phone with garmin tech support to fix it.) Search these forums for "nuvi 205 no detailed maps" for more details.
