Hi, this is usually caused by a bad battery, or battery issue,not charged properly etc, this needs to be replaced. Now, if not that then the software has glitched and needs to be replaced/upgraded.

To replace the software you need to install the Garmin software and connect up your GPS, via USB, and logon to the Garmin website and try to update your existing software, this will usually sort out any problems,
Below is the link for your manual and support. It shows you what to do and how to do it in the easy to follow manual.

Now if it still will not work after battery replacement and or software upgrade, then you will need to send it back to Garmin, they will repair/replace your unit, for a very reasonable cost.

Where may I update my garmin nuvi 250w for free?


Garmin offers two kinds of updates on its website: software updates are free. Map updates are not. You'll need a USB cable to connect the Garmin to your computer. Then go to http://www.garmin.com
On the web site, first register your product. Then look for "Support" and follow their instructions for updating your software. After you've done that, look for "Maps" on the menu at the top of the screen. You can either purchase updates one at a time, or buy a lifetime (of your device) subscription. By the way, maps are huge files, so plan on it taking several hours to update your maps even with a fast internet connection.

Garmin 250w keeps resetting itself, GARMIN logo comes on and then as to press dot, then reset and GARMIN logo comes on again. Try soft reset, still reset itself. Unable to upgrade firmware because...


Probably needs a new logic board at this point. If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult.

After my Garmin accepts power from my car but it does not get past the "loading maps" stage. All I get is the Garmin logo? Please help!


You are using the incorrect power lead there are two available on to connect to your PC for updated this one can't be used the in the car even with a USB to 12V adapter.

You will need to buy the correct car version that is just 12V DC straigh intto the Garmin this one is just used for recharging in your car.

As far a I know Garmin is the only type of SatNav that has this Pequliarity with the leads.
