    If your nuvi series device is freezing on the map screen but still providing voice prompts there are two steps you can try to resolve the issue including updating the software using WebUpdater* and performing a master reset.

    To download WebUpdater and update the software:


    1. Go to http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdat...

    2. Follow the on screen instructions

Garmin 1340 - can't use while charging the battery


This is either a oh doh! kind of thing or a setting or battery issue. On some models the gps is detected as a usb storage device when connected on the usb. If this is the case you won't be able to use it normally but you can copy files or update it. You can use the software to 'talk' to it and change settings. If you look at my computer you should see something like drive X: Garmin GPS or drive X: USB storage device. You may see two one for the main device and the other for the SD card.

It also sounds like it could be that your battery needs replaceing or its not getting enough power to run on. This is a bit strange as it should just shutoff when the battery is drained not lock you out. On a good battery it should run about 3 hours on a overnight charge. If it is less than that duration then it does need replaceing. Have you tried plugging its and its usb onto a differant computer? It is possible that either the usb setting has the power limited or the usb is an older type that doesn't provide enough power. Normally it should run and charge while connected to the usb cable.

Garmin nuvi 255w trying to register and update maps. Got the Firefox addon-loaded successfully, restarted firefox; plugged in usb cable to pc and GPS; can not find my device. Tried XP sp3 desktop and vista...


The problem was following the Garmin instructions too closely. What I found via a GPS forum was that some USB cables can be finicky and trying different USB cables may solve the problem. In my case I found I had to turn the nuvi 255W on normally during registration; then connect the USB cable to device and PC. Then the registration and download worked.
The documentation is not clear on this.

Found I had the latest map; but did upgrade my firmware from 5.90 to 6.10.
