My garmin 255w keeps telling me that it's


Hello,

Doing a soft reset on the nuvi will usually get the nuvi up and running.
If there is a reset button on the bottom, press and hold it until the nuvi powers back on. If it does not have the reset button on the bottom, slide and hold the power switch to the left for at least 10 seconds.
Also running the Garmin WebUpdater and reloading the latest update will resolve most issues.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

Can gamin 255w indicate closer distance eg 50m turn left?


In my experience, my Garmin 255W repeats many times the same order as you are reaching the turning point. First it tells, for example, "in 600 m keep the left lane and then turn left". As you approach that distance it repeats "keep the left lane and then turn left". Once you reached the 600 m it says "turn left" without further stating any distance. It depends on how speed you drive which is recognized by the device. The faster you go, the earlier it will tell you the next change in your route so you can have time to act.

255w in a loop - loading maps, then restarts...can't recharge


Use a USB connection to your computer and let it charge for three hours. Also download updates while your at it. Cigarette lighter charger is not efficient
