I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted. Don't skip the hard reset step (or the backup step!)

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Guys and or ladies... I know that you have to create a folder named "GARMIN" in the sd card so the maps can be recognize. Maybe this solves your problem. Let me know if it works.

It's strange if the plug doesn't fit the cigarette lighter socket. They can be a tight fit so if you find it a little big for the socket try putting pressure on it to push it in. If it absolutely won't fit you can buy cigarette lighter plugs in car accessory shops. If you can get one that does fit you can cut the one that's on the lead off and fit the new one.

If you cannot get any plug to fit you can get the lead wired permanently into the car. Any garage would be able to do it for you.

If the echo series device powers on in demo mode (sometimes called simulator mode), this is an indication that the device does not recognize that a transducer is connected upon power up.
Ensure the transducer was correctly connected before powering on the echo. If the echo was powered on before the transducer was connected, power the echo off, then back on.
If the echo has a 5-inch display and is still in demo mode, an additional check can be made:
  1. Disconnect all cables from the back of the echo
  2. Completely remove the echo from the mount and the back mounting plate
  3. Correctly line up and connect the transducer cable to the echo's transducer port
  4. Once the transducer cable has been connected, connect the power cable to the echo's power cable port
  5. Power on the echo

Very easy to fix the problem. When you plug in the Garmin Nuvi 200 to your computer, two drives will show up . Go to the Garmin drive and click on voice file, delete all the languages except for the one you want to use (i.e. American USA), this will give you all the 37 Megs you need to download 2009 maps. Takes a while to download using the web updater that you need to download into your computer from Garmin, but I had no problems.

To reset the unit, pry off the silver faceplate.
Turn the unit on using the power button on the right side.
Press the reset button that was hidden behind the face plate.
The GPS unit should restart, and display its software version.
Make a note of the software version in case you have to call customer service.
To acquire satellites make sure the GPS has a clear view of the sky.

For Garmin customer service, call 800-800-1020.
