    Re: Not enough space for a new map in Nuvi255W

    With that trick yes, i guess. Don't know what to say, i saw that with quickcure nothing happen' i tried with updater. I tried 60 seconds, nothing...is it dead ?!

    LE: With no chance of the device to start, i connect it like this on the pc with the usb and started the quickcure, strange, worked:

    but the device is still not showing in windows..

    LE2: Something else, i let the gps connect it to the usb to PC and keeps ding it all the time. I saw in Device Manager that Garmin Devices is the problem, appear and dissappear on dings.

    So the bootloader is still alive and you should be able to flash the firmware.
    If QuickCure3 doesn't work then try GarminCure3, it's more reliable.

    If the only problem you have is the wrong internal filesystem then GarminCure3 should help. If it doesn't we can also try clearing NV memory.
    According to the QuickCure3 screenshot your device's HWID is 851, so use this firmware: Garmin: nuvi 2x5 (GCD File) Updates & Downloads

    Re: Not enough space for a new map in Nuvi255W

    I managed to do a hard reset on gps and now my PC can see the partition of internal garmin, but the problem is that my gps (since doesn't have any files inside now) can't stay on. keeps shutting down after 3-4 sec. And i can't put it in pre-boot mode so i can use any of the cure programs. Any ideeas ? Thanks again

    old maps garmin 255w with old maps

    I got one of these from a friend,it is very good condition.Thr only problem is the maps are about 4 years old.

    My question is,is it easy to install new maps,I know where I can get them but Im not sure how difficult it is to install.

    I really dont want all Europe,just Uk.

    Would it be easier just to install igo?

    I appologise if this has been asked before and thanks for any help in advance
