Would you like to erase the phonebook entries on your Garmin Nuvi 255W, left over from when you bluetooth paired with your cell phone?

I can help you delete the phone numbers on your Garmin Nuvi 255W.

The phone numbers transferred to your Nuvi are only supposed to be available when your phone is paired to your cell phone. Changing the entry on your phone should allow that entry to show up changed the next time it is paired with the Nuvi. Sometimes, a bluetooth mix up causes entries to be duplicated or entries' phone numbers to get repeated.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data (this hard reset will remove the phonebook info from your nuvi), and then updating your Nuvi' firmware to make sure the nuvi and cell phone bluetooth process runs as smoothly as possible in the future.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Nuvi 255W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 255W WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

I need to get updates for ym Garmin nuvi 255w. it did not come with any connection to my computer. I am wondering if I need to purchase at Best buy? How to get updates. I didn't get a manual or anything....


To update your maps you need to connect your satnav to a computer using a mini USB cable. The mini USB end connects into your satnav in the same socket that the car charger plugs into. You might already have one for something else that connects to your computer as many products use the same type of cable e.g. external hard drives, some digital cameras and camcorders, some phones etc. You can get details of how to update your satnav at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

How do i update my Nuvi 255W garmin GPS


To update your nuvi, all you need to do is to connect your nuvi to an internet connected computer and the updates will show on the lower left of your computers screen, click on it and it will update it with the latest software version and maps.
You can also go to your nuvis website and search for latest updates. Just click on the map link and a list will pop up under the map link, select update maps if it is maps you want to update. It will ask you to choose your device from a list, after choosing your nuvi 255w then it will show you the latest maps for your gps, but you have to install its plug ins first.
That is how to update your gps.
