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.

When trying to put in an address the Garmin asks me for a country and then does not accept it after typing in the first letter. The other functions appear to be ok.


Hello

you need to update your map

Purchase your map updates (if necessary). You can purchase map updates for your Garmin Nuvi from the Garmin website. There are two basic options: a lifetime purchase or a one-time upgrade. The lifetime purchase gives you access to any new updates for the life of your device, while the one-time upgrade will provide you with the latest current maps, but you'll need to purchase again if you want to upgrade again later.

Make sure to log in with your myGarmin account before purchasing the map upgrade.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi to your computer via USB cable.

Open the "myGarmin" website and sign in with your Garmin account. Make sure to sign in with the account that you've purchased the map updates on.

Click the "myMaps" tab on the myGamrin dashboard. This will load a list of all of your purchased map upgrades.

Click the drop-down menu in the "Recent Map Purchases" section. Select your Garmin Nuvi from the list of devices.

Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin when prompted. This is required in order for the Garmin website to transfer the map files to your Gamrin software on your computer.

Download and install Garmin Express. This is the program that allows your computer to interact with your Garmin Nuvi.

Register your device in Garmin Express. If you haven't already registered your device, you'll be prompted to when you start Garmin Express. You'll need to register in order to update the maps.

Click the "Updates" tab in Garmin Express. This will show all of the available updates for your Nuvi, including the new map update you just purchased.

Click the "Show Details" option next to your Map Update. Click the "Install" button that appears. You will need to accept the agreement before the update installs.

Wait for the maps to download and install. Once you agree to the terms, the map update will begin downloading to Garmin Express, and will then be transferred to your Nuvi. This will likely take several minutes to complete.

unplug the Nuvi when the update is complete. The Nuvi will reboot and begin installing the updated software on the device. This may take another couple of minutes.

You can download garmin express here

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.

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
