Take it back for an exchange. Looks like a firmware/software problem, but could be a hardware fault, also. If you run it by a Car Audio Installation facility, they can usually tell you what's going on, and whether there's a simple fix or not.
Myself, I don't trust things that don't work out of the box. Sometimes, in the case of complex devices, it's a setting, but these devices should power up and load, and turn off when you want them to.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

My garmin nuvi 255w keeps freezing up at loading maps screen...i have tried the hard reset but that doesn't work, when i push on the bottom right corner and start the gps, it doesn't even make it...


There is a hard reset button under the sticker at the bottom of the unit. It is located directly under the check mark on the sticker. Once you get it going fully charge the unit then go to the Garmin website and register and update your 255w. I will attach the link to the Garmin Site. Thanks for using FixYa

Garmin 1300 stuck on maps loading frozen I have a GARMIN nuvi 1300, running off a car cigarette lighter type charger, it was working fine for weeks, I got in the car, started it up and the nuvi is STUCK on...


I had the same problem with a 1300 unit and a car charger. After holding power button for 10 seconds it would begin to start, but get stuck while saying "Loading Maps." and then it would shut off again.
I fixed it by plugging the unit into a computer USB port. It then did it's PC connection startup as usual, which leaves a connection icon on the screen. I gave it a minute and then unplugged it from the PC. It then restarted and booted up properly.
Hope this helps.

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

SHUTDOWN


My Garmin 660 after going thru the initial start up of "loading map" it will just SHUTDOWN. I have tried to clear the data in the diagnostic menu as recomendated by Garmin support to no avail. At the start, the trouble is it will just stay in the loading map stage. Then later it begin to shutdown.

I had a 200 W Nuvi with the same problem. Luckily it happened with the first 3 months, so i could return it to Garmin under warranty for a free replacement

Nope, the data will stay there, you just insert the SD card, use the wrench symbol/select map/select about/ tick the Australia map on/the usa map off/ and you're garmin just went Aussie.
