Re: Software Update Fail?

#1001 Post by aditmb » Sat Feb 05, 2011 11:05 pm

Actually, before I upgrade I checked and my firmware is the latest, but I don't know why the website said I need an upgrade. The device is working just fine (maybe you're right, it's map related) but I'm still curious about the restart problem.

Nuvi 255W turn by turn distance misssing. Can anyone help?

#1002 Post by mac81 » Mon Feb 07, 2011 2:49 pm

Hi Seniors,

I'm new with Nuvi 255W. The other day I was using the GPS and immediately after pressing MapInfo the distance went missing as attached in the screen shot below. The highlighted one is missing.

And many times I've over shot. :(

I have tried restore at all possible screen but it does not help.

Can anyone help?
Thank you.

I have not seen this problem before but it looks like a corrupt firmware or bad map. Try loading a new map (re-download) to test before going for a firmware update. Do backup your Data before upgrading the firmware... hope this helps... cheers!

It is advisable NOT to enable ( tic) maps of same / overlapping regions as there is a possibility of data clashing, thus please use only one map that suits your navigation needs.

He needs more than Gmaptool. He also needs cGPSMappers.exe. I have not used M3 for a long long time... since the day Gmaptool is out....

Why is it so difficult?... because you use the less efficient tool.
