hi masters,
need help, i think i bricked my 205w. i followed lokoko suggestion and I flashed 465t v3.20 firmware to my 205w. it was succesful and i got first boot. then i reconnected back to PC and updated to v3.60 using the .gcd file from garmin. successfully updated again. reconnected it to my pc and restored the GPX folder. after disconnecting the device from my PC, it cannot boot anymore (like no power at all). now i cannot even boot it or even charge it, nothing is happening. can i still recover my 205w? tried reflashing again, but since it is not powering up, pc cannot detect it. please help!!!

btw, my 205w is S4 US version (ID - 827).

Got 1 chance,
Send back to Garmin Taiwan for Repair, but repairing cost + freight cost= almost can buy new.

Otherwise

After reading all pages, i became from blur haha!

Anyone from singapore willing to help me out on my Nuvi 255W? The weird thing is i don't know its a local set or a US set, i highly suspect its a US set as i dont have the malaysia/singapore NT map. I bought the set in Singapore from the authorised retailer when 255W was first launch.

Anyway, anyone willing to help me flash my set so i can get JV? willing to pay a small fee or a coffee for your time too. PM me if interested k. Thanks!
