This is normal. You should get a picture of a PC to show that it's connected. Since it would not be possible to update files that are in use the connection prevents the Satnav from being started.

How concect garmin nuvi 205w to laptop


You connect the satnav to your computer with a mini USB lead. It should have come with the satnav. The narrow end goes in the back of the satnav, where the power lead goes in the car, and the USB end goes in a USB socket on your computer.

If you didn't get a mini USB lead with your satnav you may already have one for something else. They come with many digital cameras, camcorders, smart phones, external hard drives etc.

If you don't have one any computer store should be able to sell you one.

Nuvi 205W keeps rebooting.


Your unit most likely has a firmware error, which could be due to a corrupt file. To solve it you yourself can try to update the firmware when connecting to the pc, if the unit cannot stay on enough for this to be performed, your unit will have to be sent in to service.

Problem connecting Garmin nuvi 205 w to pc


Check your cable.

I had to switch to device to pc cable from the garmin original cable to a pc cable that works with my motorola razor. The funny thing is I originally tried the motorola cable and it wouldn't work, brought the garmin cable and now it doesn't work but the motorola cable does.

Now my pc finds the device and I can go on to the garmin site and update.

I deleted files in garmin 205W now I lost voice and languages


I also had this problem while trying to register a Nuvi 205W. I talked to someone at Garmin tech support and found that I was using USB cable that was only meant to plug in to my computer to recharge the unit. I have now sent for a data transmission USB cable, will see if that solves the problem when it arrives. Hope this helps.

you can get the manual at www.garmin.com
you'll also need to get yourself a usb cable... the normal end for the computer and i believe the other end is called a mini b connector.
