This is likely a failed battery.
The battery on these units is not user-replaceable (soldered to the PCB) and must be returned to Garmin for repair.

Your nuvi 205 is listed as a $79 flat rate repair.

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

Then I suggest following these instructions for a hard reset.

Finally, replace the firmware and system software using webupdate. Replacing the firmware should allow it to power up successfully after the update.

I hope that helps.

Good morning Vickie. With a device this new, I would suggest you have a conversation with the Garmin folks, e-mail or on the telephone. Here is the link: http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us click on support and make your choice.

I don't think you can repair this yourself.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

When I plug this in to my car, only the Garmin logo comes up


Whenever these devices start acting up, like failing to load past the Garmin logo screen, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.
