I own a Garmin also, my suggestion is to contact Garmin tech support. The reason I say this is because I had one do that to me too and it had an internal problem that only Garmin can fix. Garmins web site is www.garmin.com look at the top of the page where it says My Garmin. If you haven't set up a user name and password with them. If you have already done that then go to technical support explain to them what is happening to your GPS and ask them how to proceed with repairing it. I think you have a internal component failure but I could be wrong.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please give me a yes that you were helped. Thank you

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


Hello,

The Garmin Communicator Plugin needs to be installed on your computer.
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator

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.

My garmin won't turn on. I have tried the plug in


it does have an internal battery, but that normally wont prevent it
from turning on unless the battery is defective.

plug it in to the usb cable on your computer for a while (normally it will start right up) then slide to power switch to the on position for about ten seconds.

if that fails, press and hold the lower right corner of the screen and then slide the power switch to the on position while holding the lower right corner of the screen and follow the directions once it starts

i can give you something else to try before you go and spend money on a battery...a battery should be the last thing to do, even though it will more often then not fix the problem thats tempory..

if it turns out you think you need a battery, i will point you to one with instructions on how to change it.

How to fully charge nuvi 265 gps


The nuvi 265 comes with two cables. The auto cable will power it while you're driving, and charge it if you turn the unit off (slide the switch to the left to turn it off/on, or to the right to lock it in the off position). You can see the level of charge on the main page (especially when it's unplugged).

The other cable connects the nuvi to a USB port on your computer. In this mode, the nuvi will appear as a storage device, so you can download images and updated software/maps to it. It will also draw a charge from the USB cable.

My 265 wt was working fine until 2 days ago


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.

Satellite reception is one of the issues addressed in Garmin Nuvi 265WT firmware updates.

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.
