I can not connect my nuvi 255wt with computer for register and update?


First step is to make sure that the USB cable is not third party, and a Garmin miniUSB. If it is and your still having issues connecting try a different USB slot.

Hope this helps!

I have tried to register my new nuvi 255WT; and your system will not cooperate !! PLUS I want to buy a wall converter charger unit so I can charge my unit w/o operating my car. It seems you folks don't...


In checking the experts bulletin boards, there were some updates occurring and some of the servers were down. Please give the system a bit of time to come back online. Regarding your product registration, it is possible the product has not been previously recognized by the system. Please try once again, and if still no luck, please e-mail the FixYa staff. I'm certain they will be more than willing to help you with all of your concerns.

Thank you.
