My Garmin Nuvi 250 w gets stuck on the screen showing a picture connecting a computer to Garmin. I have it in my car and resetting hasn't worked. any suggestions


Hello,

The nuvi is being put into mass storage mode (the mode used to transfer data back and forth to a computer). This is usually caused by using the wrong vehicle power cable.
The correct cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-06.

How do i upgrade my garmin nuvi 200 gps? (never been upgraded


Hello,

Download and install the Garmin commuicator plugin to your computer
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/
This will allow the nuvi to transfer data back and forth to Garmin's server.
Connect your nuvi to your computer and run the Garmin WebUpdater to update the software on the nuvi.
Download and Install WebUpdater.
To update the mapping, you will need to purchase a map update subscription.
https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm?
Once the subscription is activated and registered to the nuvi, follow the download instructions to download the map. This will usually take from 3 to 4 hours or more depending on your internet download speed.
The nuvi 200 is a discontinued model and you may want to consider upgrading to a new GPS as a new nuvi with lifetime mapping can be purchased for about $150.00.

We have a garmin nuvi 255w. We need to know what is the latest map update. Our gps has "CN North America, NT 2010.30" version on it. Is ther something newer than this.


Maps for most GPS devices are updated several times a year. Your map is from 2010 and should be updated. You can go to the garmin site and pay to download and install upgraded maps or do a google search for map upgrades and you'll find some services offering lifetime upgrades for a few dollars more than the Garmin one time upgrade. I did this and have had no problems updating the maps on my Garmin Nuvi 250.

I need to get newest updates for my garmin nuvi 250. what can i do for get it?


Hello,

If you are looking for map upgrades there are a couple options. One is to purchase the update on DVD then load it to the unit. Two Purchase a Lifetime Subscription to mapping which would allow you to update the GPS every 3 months. You can also obtain a onetime update VIA download on Garmin.com.

How instal maps on sd memori card for garmin nuvi 250


Hello

Insert the memory card into the memory card slot on Garmin Nuvi 250 GPS device. The memory card slot is located on the left side of the device. Push the card in until it clicks. (If you inserted a memory card that already has pre-installed maps and files, there is no further action required. The device will access the new maps based on the address you enter.)


Connect the Garmin GPS to the computer using the USB cable. The mini-USB connector will need to be inserted into the rear of the Nuvi 250; the larger end is inserted into the computer's USB port.


Locate the computer file that you want to download to the Garmin memory card. The Nuvi 250 is capable of reading JPEG formatted images and GPX formatted Waypoints and other mapping-related files. Right-click on it. Select "Copy."


Select the "Computer" folder from the computer's desktop Start menu. Double-click on the "Removable Disk" drive that represents the Garmin Nuvi.


Right-click in an empty space within the drive and select "Paste." The files have now downloaded to the memory card and will be accessible through the Nuvi 250 menu options.


Good Luck, and do rate the solution if got help

Garmin Nuvi 250 - When I attach the 12 volt charger lead to my Garmin Nuvi 250 it thinks that it is in USB Mass Storage Mode. I can use the Garmin 250 okay when it is not plugged in. This has just...


The problem is with the socket at the back of the satnav where you plug in the mini USB plug of the power cord. As the socket wears it feels as if the plug is in fully when it's not. Push the plug in further and the problem should be solved.

I just want a free garmin nuvi 250 map upgrade


Garmin never provided free map updates. Either buy the current version or buy the lifetime subscription. Go to Garmin.com
I bought the lifetime one. Saved me hundreds of dollars so far.
I've updated 6 times already!!
