How to Reset a Garmin Nuvi 205W

by KR Knowlin

The Nuvi series of Garmin GPS devices can provide users with convenient, turn-by-turn navigation to their desired destination. With the 205W GPS satellite technology, you can find your current location, plan routes, access recent travel history and find popular points of interest. Reset the Nuvi 205W to reboot the device's system and end any unresponsive processes.

Press and release the "Reset" button on the bottom of the device.

Slide the "Power" switch to the On/Off position if your Nuvi does not have a "Reset" button.

Continue to hold the "Power" switch in the On/Off position for eight seconds to complete the reset process.
