Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver
I contacted Garmin and I was given the following sequence to recover from this condition:
1. Power off the unit.
2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).
3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to recover from the above problem.
Apparently this sequence will only work with the above error. I hope this assists other if they encounter this problem.Thanks for using FixYa
