It's possible that it doesn't have a map of England. Press Tools, then press Settings then press Map. Press Map Info. This will show you the maps installed on your satnav and the map selected should have a tick beside it. If there's no map of Europe or UK on it you'll need to buy one. If there's one there but not ticked press on it and it will become selected and should work fine then.
If you need to buy a map you'll need to register the satnav if you haven't already done so.
TO REGISTER
Connect the satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com. Select your country. Click on myGarmin and then on Register Your Garmin Device. Follow the prompts. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them in a safe place as you'll probably need them again to update maps.
TO BUY NEW MAPS.
Log into myGarmin and click on myMaps.
Click on Shop fFor More Maps.
Select the one you want, UK and Ireland or W Europe would do. Follow the prompts.

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 250 w gets stuck on the screen showing a picture connecting a computer to Garmin. I have it in my car and resetting hasn't worked. any suggestions


Hello,

The nuvi is being put into mass storage mode (the mode used to transfer data back and forth to a computer). This is usually caused by using the wrong vehicle power cable.
The correct cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-06.

Most likely the problem is that your device is stuck in a demo mode, you should go into settings and when you see demo turn that option off.

I bought a garmin nuvi 205 from someone very cheap he had three and show me 1 working fine so i bought the other one which is the 250 garmin and when i got home it was lock on the screen


Call him back and get your money back. You cannot unlock these, we can't unlock it either. It must go back to Garmin with the original receipt to be unlocked. If you bought it very cheap and he didn't giveyou the PIN, it was probably stolen.

Garmin nuvi 250 mapsource


Verify that you have the correct basemap for the country that you are in. There are two maps inside a new Garmin. The basemap which shows all the major highways and mapsource which shows all the street. If you don't have the correct basemap try changing 'Navigation' Advoidance to avoid highways and Toll Roads.
