If you read the directions that came with the Nuvi, it explains that to charge from a computer can take many hours. I use a USB phone charger and then to download updates use the software on the computer when the Nuvi is connected to the computer with the supplied USB cable.

Charging via a PC is not the quickest way to charge a GPS because many USB ports can not supply enough current, so the battery will take longer to charge. Using an AC adapter is a better way. Leaving the unit to charge over night should be fine. The way to tell if the GPS is fully charged is to look at the battery icon on the main screen of the GPS. It consists of 4 bars. 4 bars = fully charged. 3 bars = 75%, 2 bars = 50% and 1 bar = 25%.

When encountering errors such as "No Map Data Available" and Garmin Express does not recognize your Garmin nuvi, check to see if your Garmin nuvi is out of storage space from your computer. Solution related to the fact that when brought up as the E: drive in windows there were 0 bytes free space on the Garmin nuvi. To get Garmin Express to recognize a unit which is full, do a search on the Windows Drive (E:) for "gmap" then choose "Open file location" This will get into the hidden ".system" directory. From there, delete the largest file map, such as "gmapprom" (or move this file to your hard drive). Afterward, reboot your computer to have Garmin Express software recognize your Garmin nuvi. On older units, also purchase a microSDHC card to be able to store the newest maps, such as the US & Canada 2.6Gb map file, which will not fit on the internal unit alone or a 2Gb card. The Garmin Express software will recognize 4Gb to 32Gb microSDHC Class 10 or UHS-I cards formatted to FAT32 and install the newest maps automatically to them. Some have reported that 4Gb cards are not large enough. I had used a 16Gb SanDisk Ultra PLUS UHS-I card ($10.88 Walmart) successfully on my Garmin nuvi 1450LMT

If the garmin can reach satellites in North America, it will reach satellites anywhere in the world as long as it has a clear line of site to the satellites. Depending where you are, the satellites can be higher or lower in the sky. This means that the garmin in your vehicle may not be able to see the satellites how you have it positioned in your vehicle. Try finding the satellites outside of your vehicle while in Europe. If you can, then the problem is positioning in your vehicle. The satellites are all the same kind no matter where you are.

It's very easy, did you read the manual?

On your computer you download Garmin Express. Connect the Nuvi265 using a USB cable with a mini-D connector and register it. The Garmin Express app will tell you if there are updates available and also extra features if you want them. The maps are updated about every 3 months. One trick is to accept the 3 month trail of Red Light Cameras, when the trial expires, you still have the data, but it's not updated.

Page 42 of the manual refers to updating
