You can charge your unit using the USB cable if it came with one.. ( its the same USB cable you use to plug in a camera to a computer )

with the unit Off

Plug your GPS to Computer using the USB cable.... your computer will detect new hardware your usb port ... you can minimise the box that pops up

now go to this site will also detect your unit model and let you unlock maps and update Firmware

This is where you will Register your unit, the site will tell you to download WebUpDater utility to transfer maps and updates

FYI *** where you set up this unit will be set as your SECURITY LOCATION in case you lose your pin number to unlock your gps.... you would have to return to this location to unlock your gps again.... you can find good info on this in your unit under Tools... Help
good luck and enjoy it..... use the Points of Interest alot its awesome

We are travelling to Europe and want to bring our 265wt along, loaded with Europe maps. Can I use the mini-USB cable and charge in the cigarette lighter of European cars?

Yes the European cars are pretty much the same as the American cars. You will be able to plug into the cigarette lighter socket and charge your satnav.

Do i need to charge the bettrey of my garmin 265wt GPS before using??

YES !!

Make sure you have a fully charged battery before downloading ur maps.... the map download my take up to an hour or so to upload...

once you charge your battery this is what you need to do:

Using the USB cable connect your gps to computer.... ( if you didnt get a usb cable you could use most camera usb cables they connect the same way )

your computer will detect new hardware, a autoplay box will pop up, you can minimise it


go to

it too will detect your new unit and have you Register your GPS.... its free

Garmin will have you download WebUpDater utility this is what you need to transferr and open Maps

follow the easy directions your not long from completion..

********** where you first setup your gps this wil be called your SECURITY LOCATION..... if you ever lock your unit you need a Pin Number to unlock it..... if you forget or lose your Pin Number you must return to the SECURITY LOCATION where you set up to unlock your GPS

E-MAIL them back and let them know your situation. There must be a mix up somewhere. Also let them know if you have any documentation of registering it. Hope this helps.

Frozen on 'loading...' page during registration

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Not starting, getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
