If for some reason when you patched, your location is no longer in Malaysia (or Singapore) then you will have to spend some time in the open (can be up to 1 hour) until you get satellite lock and the Start Recording Button as well as the correct time will be available.
Thanks for the reply! I went outside the next day and it worked instantly.

Yes, I know this is really old thread, but I have this issue:

with installed the above patch, my Nuvi is working great, tracklog works but it is not "ringing" when POI is close. Before this update it worked, I have lot of POIs installed. Any ideas?

Try using POI Loader to transfer your POIs and set the proximity alert again. I am not aware of complaints from others. If it doesn't work, your options are to accept the patched firmware as it is for the sake of the 1-sec tracklog or revert to unpatched firmwares as nobody is now interested in patching firmwares.

Webupdater Fail

#235 Post by ktan » Fri Jul 30, 2010 3:56 am

I used to be able to use webupdater to update my nuvi 255W. However, since about 1 month ago, it failed to recognize the unit. Something must be wrong with the GarminDevice.xml file on the Garmin main storage drive. Does anyone know the fix for this problem? Thanks. :)

Try "drag and drop" RGN file into Updater.exe.

Thank you for your answer. My Nuvi 200w is ok. Tracklog is now working.
How can I install/display in the Nuvi my own track, which I made in Mapsource or Homeport? When I loaded my own tracklog (which is in gpx format) into the SD card and internal Nuvi. It didn't work in both of them. On the other hand, when I checked it on the PC, I could only see, which came from SD card. I couldn't open Nuvi's gpxfile also in the PC.

thanks for your help.

Hi mhs1864,

You supposed to run the update file on your PC not save it on your device. Please follow the instructions on how to update your device carefully from the website where you download that file.
