If you are not able to have the computer detect a Garmin GPS unit then you can try another port on your computer if that still does not work try another computer. This would be the easiest isolation steps that you can do before pursuing another avenue. So please try another port preferably at the back of the computer and if that does not work another computer and respond with the results so that I can give you more suggestions.

How do I update my Garmin as some new roads are not in it


You must update and buy the new map...unless your unit is a month or 2 old they may do it for free.

To buy the new Map go to www.MyGarmin.com its about 50 or 60 dollars

before you do that here is how....

With your unit Off

Plug in your GPS to computer using the USB cable, ( its the same USB cable most cameras use to connect to a computer)

Your computer will detect new usb hardware....a pop up box will appear minimise it

next

go to www.MyGarmin.com it also will detect your model gps and give you the proper map updates and firmware

If you have to Register (free) make sure you remember your SECURITY LOCATION... this is where you would have to return to if you lock your unit with a pin and forgot the pin number

When you say you are clicking on the map, are you just using your mouse pointer to click or have you actually selected the Map Select tool at the top of your Mapsource screen?

Street Pilot C340


The only way to update the maps is to purchase new maps from Garmin and download them via the computer. The 2008 map updates are currently available, and Garmin has told me new maps will be out in a few months.
