Are you sure you have set the mark correctly. 30 ft would be acceptable due to regulations , but 2 miles is quit a lot of variance. Check to be sure your map is up to date as some maps were never updated with road changes if you are going off a pre-set map load

When you first tun them on it is supposed to tell you to touch all four corners in a row.....this calibrates it. Yours may be differenr but the most of them are this way.......

If you are pressing the on switch and it is not switching on then try plugging this in someone else's care and see if it works. If it doesn't then there is an issue with the unit or the charging cord. Try a different cord and if that doesn't fix it then it is the unit. Good luck.

Press the reset button - you'll find it on the lower right of the Nüvi 255, but it doesn't look like a button. It's basically the sticker with all the information on it. It's just enough to push the sticker carefully with something small, not too sharp so it doesn' get destroyed. The Nüvi reboots, the loader loads and proceeds with the software load. Once this is over, shut down the Nüvi and reconnect to the PC. Then, everything works fine (it did at least for me).

You charge the unit via your cigarette lighter socket using the charge lead supplied. Generally you type a zip code if you know it and the satnav will calculate your route.\if you dont know the zip code type in an address but this gives several areas. Zip codes are preffered.It will talk once you start driving giving you forwarning of any turns you need to make in advance. Good Luck

Hi,
if you have the feature (map updates) included with the model you purchased, first you have to download and install Garmin Express on your computer, and then connect your GPS to the computer.
the computer should detect the GPS and synchronization instructions should appear.

Shut it off, wait a few, turn it back on, press all four corners with fingertips at the same time. If that doesn't re-set it, call Garmin. They're super helpful
