Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Hi. I am on vacation and my cousin lent me her Garmin Nuvi 255. I used it for a week and we found it to be very good. Door to door etc... But we went to a market about 5 miles away and when we came out and try to use it, it did not load, it keeps saying "loading maps" and it fades away. What shall I do to make it work. I need it desperatley. Francis Formosa

Reset my garmin nuvi 255


Hi,

You can reset the unit by pressing the RESET button at its bottom. If RESET button is not found, slide the POWER key and hold it for more than 8 seconds, it will do the same.

My garmin nuvi 255 is in porchugese and cant get it to english.


Here's the link for the manual (in English). (Click here)
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/2675_OwnersManual.pdf

Although the manual says it's for the nuvi 205, it should be the same for your nuvi 255.

The instructions to change the language are on page 35 of the manual.

You may be able to use the Yahoo online translator to translate the Portuguese words to English - to change the language.
