Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver
I had same problem. I called Garmin customer service who connected me to a computer rep. Garmin hooks with your computer that you have your Garmin plugged into.They can upload the proper software in no time at all.
The rep told me that after I updated my Garmin I might have turned off the unit before it completed updating the new software. You need to wait until the screen with "Where to?" appears.
It works great now. Prepare to wait on hold for a while. I waited just over an hour on Monday, their busiest day.

Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550

First, what version of maps do you have? 2009? If so, there's no reason to update at this time.
To register, just go to https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/marketing/register.htm and create an account. You'll need to create a user name and password and then enter in your units serial number which is located on the decal on the bottom rear of your unit.
Once you have an account established, you can then shop the Garmin store and buy whatever you want.

Asmany as there are FREE dinners Updates are not free, unless you paid full price for it when you bought it. Free upgrades are a deceptive myth. If you get a free uograde its usually minor and was included in the price of the pack.
