To access this mode hold POWER and do not release it.
g7towin can access unit this mode and read/write some data (almanach, time, versions...)
Mapsource CAN NOT write maps in this mode, cause of nuvi limited capabilities. The main way to access maps - use USB Mass Storage Device Mode.
You can not revert firmware to older version using gupdate.gcd method.
Latest original versions for different HWID:
ID 0930 (SINGAPORE only!)
ID 0932 (TAIWAN only!)
ID 0933 (JAPANESE only!)
HOW TO know what HWID you have in your nuvi:
1. disconnect usb
2. shift-and-hold power button
3. attach usb
4. let windows to detect and install your device
5. run g7towin
6. select menu gps-get gps id
7. find appropriate ID in the list
Please visit http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=95274 to get more info before posting there.
Please use rgn if you really understand what you want to do.

Hello, I have a garmin nuvi 245W ID1091 EU. When formatting is not successful, restart the nuvi does not work anymore. It restarts continuously and can not be detected by the PC. If I press the screen at the top left during startup, the nuvi is recognized by the computer for 30 seconds. This allowed me to use the updater to install http://e-trex.info/fw/nuvi/2x5w/fw_nuvi2x5W_ID1091_en_v600.rar. The upload is successful, but the Nuvi keeps rebooting as before and is not detected by PC.
What can I do?
(sorry for my bad English, I'm Italian)

Can someone help me find cure for nuvi 465 ID:943

I have follow your instruction, enter pre-boot mode and attach unit to the PC, from Device manager, I can find the Garmin device in list is working properly, I used g7towin to get the GPS id, and get the result "Nuvi 2 Series Software Version 5.00 ID:827, Unit ID: 355xxxxxxx; USB Comm via Bulk Pipe. My Nuvi's Problem is keep on rebooting with White Screen, I have tried to your first post ID 0827 6.10 version http://e-trex.info/fw/nuvi/2x5w/fw_nuvi2x5W_ID0827_en_v610+cure.rar, flash with cure firmware, but unable to proceed, because when flashed with the cure firmware, while "Erasing...." suddenly halt, and Error message display "The Garmin Device is unable to program the requested memory region. This could be due to an incompatibility between this application and the Garmin device, if the error continues to occur, please contact Garmin technical support."
I have tried a couple times, but still show the error message above while step of "Erasing....",
If I use Older Nuvi 255W firmware version 4.40, get this version boot.bin and mixed with your cure Fw_all v6.10, My nuvi 255w can be succeed update the cure firmware completely, but the outcome still the same, although it successful updating, but my Nuvi's problem still persist, keep on rebooting with White screen, When I checked again with G7towin, result that my nuvi still hold with Software version 5.00, no change at all. I am no idea why it still remain with the software version 5.00, by right after successful updating the cure firmware v6.10, the software version should be 6.10, I have almost give up to recover my Nuvi, unless you can give me more idea/suggestion, any other method to work for it. Thanks

I make this one for you.
Do not format your gps, just delete the file you put into it.
I hope that solves your problem. :)

@needadrenaline or person that can help me!
Hello I ask your help please! I have a nuvi 205w (UNIT ID:930 syngapore)and with the idea to add italian language I removed all language .vpm files form internal memory and I put "Italiano__.vpm" as unic file into the voice folder. When I reebot the nuvi the unit continues to restart after "load map message", I can't connect the unit via usb because it restart so I can't remove the italian_.vpm voice file that causes this problem. I think if someone can make a cure firmware .rgn that can resolve this problem as I read in this post:
I think I need a firmware that can remove the entire voice folder from my internal unit o completely format it!

I used to have infinite reboot problem with my Garmin Nuvi 285W. My computer cannot detect the Nuvi drive. Nuvi reboots itself after loading map. I've tried many service firmware. Unfortunately, they didn't work. Finally, I've decided to create my own service firmware. It does work. My computer can detect the Nuvi drive. So I can correct the problem on the Nuvi drive.
First you have to flash using my service firmware (082701000660en_service_firmware.rgn). After reboot your Nuvi, possibly your computer can see the nuvi drive. You have to solve the problem which occurs on your Nuvi (For example Delete Voice files, Text files, Map files.)before your Nuvi will be flashed with original firmware(082701000660en.rgn).
here is the link (It works on 2X5W series ID 827. I've never tried it on 2X5W S4 ID 1091 because I don't have it.)
Good luck. Do it at your own risk.
PS. This is the latest firmware version 6.60 US.
My story is same as yours (except I have nuvi 255W ID 827) and only your firmware helped to break vicious reboot loop.

I think that i need the 7.10 CURE VERSION. My nuvi205w say "LOADER LOADING..." and the UPDATER.EXE show the 7.10 version.
That can be posible?

my device is nuvi 260w, and had the system file missing hang on the device for two days, finally, find the clue what to do.
get your HWID.
the rgn file must have sgn after the numbers, otherwise, the updater will tell you, no software update available.
EDIT : the rgn file MUST HAVE SG after the numbers, NOT SGN, sorry for the typing mistake
||Posted - 07 janv. 2011 : 23:53:57
you must hold only the left upper corner of the screen and no power button.
Connect usb to pc,conect cable to nuvi and in the same time push finger on the left upper corner of the screen and hold.Now run updater.exe and reflash your nuvi or you can try with the cure .rgn for your unit.

I could finally update the firmware with the updater.exe and i downloaded the 215w firmware from garniak´s site.
After the update was complete the screen went white. And it does nothing. It just stays white, the computer didnt recognize the unit and even i press the corners of the screen it just stays the same.
Is there any solution for this?
||Posted - 07 janv. 2011 : 18:01:19
I´ve already read the posts and the instructions but my nuvi 215w is not responding well.
It keeps restarting before loading the maps.
I tried what you say. If i hold the power button nothing happens. It just reboots.
But if i press the left upper corner of the screen while i hold the power button on, the unit does not try to load maps, and i hear the sound of Windows detecting an USB device. After that, the screen goes white and in the bottom left corner i can see a text saying press dot for one second. Then it restarts again.
So theres no way i can use the g7towin application, because the unit only stays on for a couple of seconds.

You can't upgrade Sg/Mal firmware to V2.8 or 3.0 by gupdate.gcd file.
You need .rgn file.

Nuvi255W S4 Board HWID0827 has been successfully flashed with US HWID0827 v6.60 + Sg/My v3.10 firmware created with TurboCCC's RGN_Tool.
Go to the thread below "Converting Nuvi 2x5W Firmware to MAL/SIN Firmware" at malfreemaps.com for more details.
Thank you. Now I know I should not brick it if I try.
