    Have you seen this page? It would seem that you would need to install a new/latest WebUpdater to download updates for your Garmin Nuvi 310 / 360.

What does unusual activity detected when trying to view my emails mean ?

I can't say you perhaps lost contact with the net, because you were able to post this question. Because you did not tell us, what mail service you were using, I have to answer globally. Perhaps your mail server was temporary of line. Perhaps someone tried to hack your account. Just try again, and eventually make contact with your mail provider to ask what was wrong. Perhaps in a few hours you can work again. Consider a taking a stronger password for the account.

Recently bought a Garmin G3 approach - only turned it on in the garden but i dont get a GPS signal and its not as if i am surrounded by high rise buildings !!.


Initially a GPS may take 20-30 minutes to obtain satellite lock, try leaving the unit powered on in a window or something of the sort. If you are still unable to achieve a lock try giving the unit a firmware update using Garmins Webupdater Software. Here is a link to the necessary software

Hope this helps!

I can't get into internet explorer it is saying cannot find and the problem solution center doesn't have anything. I tried it without plug ons and it works well I need the plug ins to do what I am doing

Try to re-install IE. To do that, find a newer version of IE (exp IE 8 / 9). If re-installing does not solve the problem, try to download Google Chrome / Mozilla Firefox. Most (almost all) plug-ins can run on those browser.
Good luck ;)

My home base is Ohio. I am now in Texas and my Garmin Nuvi 265W seems unable to acquire a satellite signal for my current location. How can I get a satellite signal that I can use in Texas?

One problem, which I've experienced, are tinted windows (tinted with metal oxide). They block or distort the microwave signal to/from the satellite. Garmin has an optional external antenna which can be used, or you can try relocating the GPS in your car. Try it with all windows down and the unit near an open window. If that works you've confirmed the tinted glass problem.

Garmin nuvi 260 touch screen does not respond


Try and reset the unit by using a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for 15 seconds. The reset button is located near the power hole for docking base. If the reset won't work then the touch screen should be replaced as it is bad. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Can't upload workouts from Forerunner 305

After deleting all but one month of history on the device, it still would not upload new workouts. It would hang in garmin connect, or indicate problem in training center. The solution, finally, was to delete all history EXCEPT for the new unloaded workouts from the device. They then uploaded.

Unable to connect to internet through wireless router


Based on your post of Fn + F2, I would initially suspect that your laptop's wireless is the issue. Perhaps you may want to double check the drivers installation and determine if there is a hard switch to activate physically the wifi network. Additionally, you may want to check the manufacturer's website for updated WiFi drivers, download and install them.

Further, it may help if you can post back make and model of your laptop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

COM 1 to garmin 12 problems

I had a similar problem with another garmin model. Problem cropped up after some sync software for an mp3 player1.gif was installed in my PC1.gif.

To get the software1.gif to recognise my GPS I had to go into my PC's task manager. (ctrl alt del). Click on the processes tab and look for a program called "wces.exe". Ending that process would allow the PC to recognise the GPS. Be careful, ending the wrong process can screw up your PC.

I know this solution1.gif is a longshot, please don't give a bad rating! :)

good luck
