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.

I live in florida usa im going to israel? how do i set my garmin nuvi for roads in israel


Hello,

Unfortunately Anything below the 1xxx series will not support mapping for isreal, so you may want to upgrade to the nuvi 1310 which come pre loaded with the mapping you need.

Hope this helps!

Garmin nuvi 760 loses the road that I am on for no apparent reason. Car icon is visible but no road image. I am not going off-road. The road graphic will be displayed but during the trip it will just...


Are your maps updated?

If so the road you on a new road that hasn't been programed into the maps yet?

Could be a few things going on, lost satelite, or a new road.... word to the wise Always carry a road map in your vehicle, GPS is a great tool but not always 100% right especialy if your on a new road, Maps are updated I believe every 6 months or more.

Love my 760

My Garmin does not know how to get home when I access the home key. It's about 2 miles off track.


Are you sure you have set the mark correctly. 30 ft would be acceptable due to regulations , but 2 miles is quit a lot of variance. Check to be sure your map is up to date as some maps were never updated with road changes if you are going off a pre-set map load

How do we update our garmin nuvi 255

To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
First you have to set up an account at Garmin using the serial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmware update for free.
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

By the way, the correct Garmin approved power OR download cables are a must!!
Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

I just purchased a Garmin nuvi 255, and the maps are inaccurate.


Just go to http://www.garmin.com There will be a registeration link. Yes I think that you will get a free mapupdate with your registeration at least they used to do that. You will need your unit serial number and model.
