Mine says the same thing... and I don't want to pay the $50 for an update when I can use the Google maps on my iPad or Blackberry. Seems like a scam to me.

My Nuvi 650 screen reads "The following map data is more than a year oldand should be updated. When I touch the "OK" on the screen, nothing happens, it seems the screen has become unresponsive.


I would suggest some caution here. I have noticed a trend in anything that can be updated by the consumer---they just blindly do it and I have also seen as the result of this dozens of units crash and burn---if you have not issues and the unit functions why risk losing it?

Turn this unit off and see later if turned on it functions or not, failing that the only way out of the mess would be a call to the maker.

Don't just blindly say ok, kind of like getting a email with a virus and saying OK.

The unit should still operate even though the map is old. If you press the OK button and nothing happens, most likely the touchscreen is bad and needs to be replaced. An old map should not stop you from using the device.

My Garmin nuvi 200W has had a battery recall and replaced by Garmin. It powers up OK and locates OK but hangs after approx 0.5-1 hours. I cannotr even turn it off without pressing reset. I have updated the...


Send it back to Garmin. The fault may be coincidental, but unless you fancy buying a replacement model it's worth seeing what Garmin have to say. It should only have been a straightforward battery swap, but if the technician forgot to wear an earthing strap it's entirely possible that a component suffered static discharge damage.

I've been holding back from sending my nuvi 770 in as the battery seems fine and I've often had problems with shoddy recall work on digital cameras and similar devices in the past.

My garmin nuvi won't turn on? i've tried to plug it into charger but nothing happens


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

Erratic behavior is an indication that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

It is not necessary for your computer to be able to 'see' your Nuvi in order for the firmware update to work. When it is successfully updated, the Nuvi will communicate properly to the computer, and your pc will 'see' it, and you can load your maps.

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.

My Garmin Nuvi 205W just white screened. I tried to reset it. Nothing is happening.It just stays white. Any suggestions?


If your Garmin NUVI 205 can be recognized by your computer when plugged in, I recommend you backup your favorites.

Then I suggest a hard reset.

Finally, replace the firmware and system software using webupdate. Your Nuvi should not need to be able to power up for a firmware update to be possible - replacing the firmware should allow it to power up successfully after the update.

I hope that helps.

When booted up, I get a Map Update Notice.


I solved this problem by pressing my finger where the OK button is before I turn the nuvi on. That worked for me,

Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.


1. From the Where To? View Map, Travel Kit page press WHERE TO

2. Press ADDRESS

3. Press SPELL STATE (should be the 2nd blue box on the page & may read SPELL COUNTY)

4. Press the letter K and Kansas + Kentucky will come up; Press the letter T and Tennessee + Texas will come up, etcetera

5. If the information does not automatically appear, hit DONE and the information will appear. For example on my nuvi 660 if I hit the letter “A” nothing happens until I hit DONE.

6. After pressing the single letter for the sate/province in which you are interested, the unit will prompt you to spell the CITY name.

You will then enter the information as it applies.
