I can't get a usb port from garmin..... they don't sell repair parts. any advice you can give me?

Yes your a captive audience, only Garmin has the parts and they want to do the repairs. Maybe you could find a broken one on Ebay and strip it for parts is all I can think of.

I hope this helps you out if it does please leave me some positive feedback

USB port on the backside of the Garmin Nuvi 265WT GPS broken. Can someone repair/replace the port?


The cost of repairs will be more than the cost of a new unit. A special tool is needed to open the unit to depress the multiple spring pressure locks all at the same time.

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.

Would you like to back up a copy of your Garmin Nuvi 265WT Favorites and Waypoints?

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After a hard reset or loss of data, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
I hope that helps.
