Question about Garmin nuvi 205W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Good-day. As I started my car my Garmin Nuvi 205W switched on and then off. I tried to switch it on using the manual switch-no luck. It is normally connected to the charger and switches on automatically when the car is started. Now it will not start at all. Please help.

We have a Garmin Nuvi 205W GPS. Was plugged into car outlet when it went to a black dot display. Nothing happened when blk dot was pressed. Now we can't get it to turn on at all.


Have you tried resetting the 205W. There is a reset button on the bottom of some of the units if not power off the unit and then hold the power button for about 10 seconds till it starts, it should go through a start up and then reboot itself. See page 42 of manual. I will attach a link to the manual, click here.
Thanks for using FixYa

Have been trying to download nuvi 255W quick-start guide but only find the 205 guide. Either way I am having trouble printing it.


The link provided by Garmin for the nuvi 255W returns the 205 / 205W manual instead. The main difference is the maps. The 205 offers built in maps of the U.S. only - while the 255 offers built in maps of U.S. & Canada.

In order to print the manual, you'll need to save the file and then use the free Adobe Reader program to open it. Use Abode Reader's internal Print function to properly format and print the manual to your printer. The Print command is visible under the "File" section or can be started by pressing Ctrl + P keys.

I hope this helps & good luck! If this was helpful to you, please rate my answer "4 thumbs up". Thank you.

GARMIN NUVI 205W series. We are trying to find an Owners Manual. We only have a Quick start manual - which does not have adequate information.


Garmin has a library of manuals for their products online. You can access and download any desired for use after purchase - or for help deciding on one prior to purchase. Click here to access the library page.

When prompted for "Market Type" select "On the Road", "Subcategory" is "Automobile" and finally, for "Choose a Product" scroll down to "nuvi 205W"

Good luck and enjoy!

Periodically, the firmware or 'brains' inside phones, mp3 players and GPS devices get confused. They begin to work erratically, or refuse to complete their startup routine at all. The good news is that 99% of the time, new life can be breathed into them by either a reset procedure or a firmware / system software replacement.

Here are the steps to fix your Garmin Nuvi 205W:

  1. If your Garmin NUVI 205 is seen when connected by USB, I recommend you backup your favorites.
  2. Then I suggest a hard reset.
  3. Finally, replace the firmware using webupdate.

I hope that helps.
