Question about Garmin Nuvi 265W GPS Receiver
Posted by Anonymous on
If you are connecting the GPS via USB and find that it does not go into mass storage mode the first thing to do would be to try your other USB ports. If this does not work try to get it to connect to someone else's PC. If you are unable to do this the unit will have to be sent off for warranty or repair. For your unit I would recommend just upgrading to something a little bit newer, it would be more cost effective and leave you will a newer more up to date unit.
Hope this helps!

USB connectors are too fragile for the constant in-out service they get. But I have solved the problem, at least for standard Type A. The plug end (its steel case slips into the port end's steel case) is functionally female; it accepts the 4-pin tongue of the port and squeezes it between the 4-pin tongue of the plug end and the steel case of the plug end. So when the plastic tongues wear down, the squeeze isn't tight enough. Solution: take a small vise-grips and make the plug's steel case a little thinner, like a weight on a grilled cheese sandwich you're making. Then when you plug it in, it will resist a bit and feel tighter. And it will now work!
