I need my free map update that came with my nuvi 205w


Hey steven barber,

To update the garmin nuvi 205 for free, you'll first need to have your GPS, an USB cable and a computer. There are web sites that will allow you to down load an update to your GPS for free. Make sure the version you pick is compatible to your computer to download it. You'll want to plug the USB cable into both the GPS and the computer, to download the upgrade to your GPS.


Check this link out for the Garmin myDashboard for your GPS

Good Luck!

Make sure that your 205 is fully charged and that the usb cable is plugged directly into a usb port on your computer and not thru a usb hub.

Garmin nuvi® 205 Car GPS Receiver Try to recalibrate and it is frozen


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.

Replacing the firmware should allow it to power up successfully after the update.

I hope that helps.

Problem connecting Garmin nuvi 205 w to pc


Check your cable.

I had to switch to device to pc cable from the garmin original cable to a pc cable that works with my motorola razor. The funny thing is I originally tried the motorola cable and it wouldn't work, brought the garmin cable and now it doesn't work but the motorola cable does.

Now my pc finds the device and I can go on to the garmin site and update.
