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.

My garmin nuvi 255 stopped showing maps...??? do i have to pay for maps every year??


No - Maps are forever unless you toss them off.
Go to GARMIN - download their Download Manager and run it. Then update the firmware. Then reboot your GARIMN and reset it.

I just purchased a Garmin nuvi 255, and the maps are inaccurate.


Just go to http://www.garmin.com There will be a registeration link. Yes I think that you will get a free mapupdate with your registeration at least they used to do that. You will need your unit serial number and model.
