My garmin 205 turns off when t start to run but will for 13 hours just sitting there.

If your Nuvi won't turn on, it's possible that it's locked up. Try using the reset button as follows.

Nuvi 3xx & 6xx Series: The reset is located on the rear of the unit, underneath the antenna. Press and hold it for at least 8 seconds and then release.

Nuvi 7xx Series: Slide the On/off power switch to the left and hold for at least 8 seconds and then release.

Nuvi 2xx & 2xxW: There are (2) different versions of this series.

Some will have the reset on the bottom, where the decal is. There will be a small flap labeled "reset".

On newer units, slide the On/off power switch to the left and hold for at least 8 seconds and then release.

I cannot unlock garmin nuvi 205

Ask the person from whom you purchased this unit (it does NOT come locked from the factory) what the PIN is. If he/she will not provide the code, ask for a refund. You will NOT be able to use this unit without the correct PIN.

Garmin nuvi 205 series, keeps beeping and "loading maps" I tried shutting it off and then holding the reset and turn it back on. it will not turn back on this way. if i push reset w/it on, it shuts off.

You can restore the Nuvi 205 system software to its factory condition by running Garmin's WebUpdater service. You may also want to try a hard reset of your Nuvi.

These are both good steps to take when a Nuvi starts acting up.

I hope that helps.

Nuvi 205 voice stopped working

I had the same problem. I went onto and attached the Nuvi to the computer using a cord that I had for my blackberry phone. Once connected, I turned on the Nuvi and ran the update tool. The update tool will reinstall the voices. This seemed to work the first time. I have had to do this twice now since I received the Nuvi 205 on December 26, 2008 (it's February 13, 2009)
