You may have to go to the Garmin.com site and download the drivers and re-install them. I'm assuming you have Mapsource installed on your PC? Once you get the drivers reinstalled, and your PC recognizing your unit, I'd highly recommend upgrading your unit software to the latest version. The operating manual can also be downloaded at that location. If this solves the problem, please come back and let us know.

Hi!

You require a chart navigation or free viewer program on your laptop to decipher the information your GPS sends and to interface with it.

There are a few of these programs available, but we opted to purchase CAPN Voyager (The CAPN) many years ago and have been quite happy with it for the 16,000 miles of coastal cruising we've done. The program allows us to see our progress in real time on the computer screen and is easy to use

Prior to that, we used Maptech's free chart viewer which allowed me to plan routes and then put the lat/lons into the GPS unit, but had no interface with the GPS to allow us to navigate in real time.

Hope this helps.

Garmin nuvi 1300 Query


Usually they come preloaded with some maps and you purchase additional ones. Check the manual that came with it or the box and that should tell you which ones it has. Generally speaking a basic unit bought in the UK will come with UK & Ireland preloaded, more expensive unit may have UK, Ireland & Europe and the most expensive may have all three plus USA. It's unlikely you will have 'lost' your USA map. The unit should have a 'drop down' menu which allows you to choose which map to load. Hope this helps!

My Garmin 276c indicates "Battery Missing" even with a new Batt.


Check the battery contact points inside the unit. There may be a thin film of crud (oxidation) that prevents contact, especially if the previous battery had any signs of corrosion.
