Garmin 265 wt is charging via USB cable.It will not connect to the garmin website.


The Garmin Communicator Plugin needs to be installed on your computer.

Also check to be sure that the data cable is the correct one.
When connect between the nuvi and the computer, the nuvi should show that it is in mass storage mode by displaying a computer on the screen.

The correct cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-01.

Voices "None Found" HELP!

You need to obtain a USB data cable to connect your Nuvi to a PC. Go to Garmin's website at and download their webupdater program. Install it on your PC and connect your Nuvi to your PC. It will allow you to download the missing voices.
