Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver
Garmin nuvi® 255W Car GPS Receiver. Problem: When downloading maps (purchased on Garmin website) to GPS, using USB cable, it gets 1-5% complete before the Garmin reboots. Can get it to finish. Is it the computer, cable or GPS? Any ideas?
The simple way is to send the unit to Garmin they will load the maps for free.
If you keep trying - try this -
With your thumb in the lower right corner of the screen - pushing in - like there is an X there - [ push with your thumb before you turn it on] Turn it on -
when this screen comes up - push YES -
then try your maps.
If they do not load on your pc [ which must have the unit hooked up and a legit copy of the newest maps ] then send the unit to Garmin. They will load your maps for you FREE.
