Anyone have a Garmin nuvi gps?

I have a Garmin nuvi 255w gps unit, have had it for a couple of years. I was setting it up last night for a trip on Sat and while doing so, the screen went black and now it will not turn on.

The battery was low before it went out. I figured I could just plug it in and still work with it, but have had no luck. I plugged it into my Jeep...nothing, plugged it into my computer...nothing.

Does anyone know what could be wrong? I still would like to use it on Sat, if I can get it working again, so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dan

Mine did this as well. Holld the switch in the on position for about ten seconds and it should reset. If it does not, you might have to hook up to the computer and install updates to get it back up. Hope this helps.
