Can anyone help me in registering garmin nuvi 255W? Also, once I connected the USB, I keep getting "External Power Lost". Is this always the case as the USB is connected?

SOURCE: I have a Garmin 250 Nuvi. I would like to do some

You can use the Nuvi for Geocaching but you will really need to rely on the Hints to find the cache. The Nuvi will get you close but you will have a hard time getting really close. It is highly recommended to get an handheld with a digital compass for the best caching experience.

I load my Nuvi with geocaches so I can see them as I drive by. Then I break out my Oregon 550 and zoom in on the coordinates. Have fun geocaching.

Do i get a free map update for the just purchased Garmin nuvi 3790T How about speed camera.

Garmin provides free online map updates (if available) within 90 days after purchase. A purchase is recorded when the Garmin Nuvi detects a certain travel speed or when the Nuvi is registered at

To qualify for free Map updates, register the Garmin Nuvi at using serial number and owner name.

A map update is a large download - which can take considerable amounts of time. When updating a Garmin map with a PC one needs at least 5Gb of free space at the C drive.

Hey, Is there a Garmin expert out ther? Wondering if I need to purchase another brand of automoble type GPS???? I have been trying to register my new Garmin nuvi all night long. Just purchased it today....

Garmin products are very good products. This is a problem with the internet and not garmin, sometimes you might try to upload a picture on facebook for instance and it take all year to get it uploaded, so it is the server and browser that really matter. If you use mozilla firefox for instance or cometbird browsers, it will work faster unlike internet explorer.
Since you know the step to register your nuvi is to go to the website, place your cursor on the support link and a list will pop out, then you select product registration, then you follow the rest of the instruction, it will require you to create an account for your garmin nuvi, once that is done, it will ask for some other information, then you will install a plug in2, then you have registered your garmin nuvi.
After registration is when you will be able to upload a map on your gps device. There is a software that comes with the gps, but you can upgrade it by downloading latest software on it.

"locating Satellites"

When you purchase a Garmin product you are given a key upon registration. If your Nuvi is registered then you need to go to Garmin and click on support. Here is a link to Garmins home page. Hope this helps, Sea Breeze
