Garmin Firmware Updates

Postby antyong (retired) » Tue May 12, 2009 11:51 pm

If you have a "localized" unit bought in Singapore or Malaysia, eg nüvi 255W Sing/Mal (010-00718-69), check the site below regularly for the latest firmware from Garmin Software Update

If you have a Taiwan unit, eg nüvi 255W (010-00718-60), check the site below regularly for the latest firmware from Garmin Taiwan Software Update

If you have an international unit, download WebUpdater, install and run it for automatic software updates

I had my USA Garmin 265W "localised" and it is running on firmware V2.60. I don't see firmware v2.70 for my Nuvi 265W. Can I use the firmware V2.70 for Nuvi 255W to update my Nuvi 265W?
