Hy my name is mariana i bought a sd card for my garmin 205w nuvi and when i plug it in to the garmin it doesn t show nothing on the screen i ring the company and they said me that i need a code to unlock...


Have your tried restarting the Nuvi 250W with the SDCARD inside? If there's something on there (like a map or custom POI's) it comes with a question if you want to install it on your Garmin GPS.

If nothing pops up - the card could be empty. To check that connect your Garmin to a PC/MAC. It should go into PC communication mode.

Then the SDCARD shows up on your computer as removable storage. Click on the removable storage drive (which is the SDCARD) and see if something is on there. If its empty it would explain the behavior you describe.

If there's a Garmin MAP on there it be detected upon startup of the Garmin and should start the installation process after asking you.

I have a Nuvi 250W and it can find locations already in the unit but it will not take a new address and it locks up when i push State. i really want a map update with the hope it will fix my problem....


It's unlikely that updating the map will solve the problem. You could try updating the software. Download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and when it's installed you'll get an option to update the satnav software. That may solve the problem. Or you could try to reset the satnav back to how it was when it left the shop by pressing the bottom right corner of the screen as you turn it on. However note that you will lose your saved locations if you do that. I hope this helps.

I leave my nuvi 250w plugged in to the cig lighter socket and it normally starts up as soon as i turn on the ignition. now it wont start up at all, is there an internal fuse inside it??


try charging it with the usb cable to your computer for a few hours, then try and start it again.

if that fails, try a reset

note: the master reset will erase all your saved data

with the unit off,and unplugged, try pressing and holding your finger on the low right corner of the screen and slide the power switch to the on position until you see the message "confirm if you really want to delete all user data?" hit yes and let it restart. then it will set up the nuvi again, so follow the prompts.

hook up the nuvi to the web updater and get the latest update



you can get the Web Updater HERE

Garmin Nuvi 250W stuck on "Loading Maps..." screen. I know it wasn't a clever thing to do, but I dragged a file (a map i think) into the Nuvi's internal memory via Windows Explorer. Now every PC i have...


Try the reset, and if that fails, download the web updater from the garmin site and try that route.


Master reset will erase all way points or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.
  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers ON
    • You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes

Please ensure that the device is receiving a charge while it is connected to the vehicle power cable. If the battery is receiving power from the vehicle power cable then the battery icon (located next to the time) would disappear from the Main Menu.

If the unit does not power on while attached to the vehicle power cable please follow steps from below to perform a soft reset:
  1. Connect the device to an external power source1
  2. Slide and hold the power key to the on position for 15 seconds
The device should power on. Notes:
  1. Preferably the vehicle power cable or a USB cable from a computer

Have you installed anything lately? Do you have any sd card installed? Usually this is the cause for it to crash. There is a reset on the bottom of the nuvi, when it locks up blank, press the reset button and see what happens...

I checked the garmin website to see if there is an update. Didn't see one. But I'd try the web updater just to make sure. BTW there is a little reset button on the bottom you could try if it goes flaky again
