    Hi All,

    I was gifted an old Nuvi 255w, and I seem to have accidentally erased the maps from the unit.
    Any idea how I can get them back?

    Thanks!

    Did you have them backed up on a computer?

    I was able to sort it out. I had to delete the files on the Nuvi, then drag the backed up folder back onto it.

    Thanks!
