The screen your describe on your Garmin Nuvi is quite normal. It's the PC communication mode of the Nuvi. When disconnected from the PC it will automatically restart.

To update Nuvi software and maps - connect the Garmin to a PC / Mac using an USB cable. Then start your web browser (Internet Explorer / Firefox or similar) and go to MyGarmin.com.

To update the Garmin - MyGarmin.com will check if your webbrowser has been installed with the Garmin update plugin. If not it will say so and will lead you through the procedure to install the Garmin web browser plug-in.

After the web browser plugin is installed it will ask you for your Username and Password at MyGarmin.com. If not registered, then register yourself with the serial number of the Garmin Nuvi.

From here it's possible to update your Garmin Nuvi with new Nuvi software and maps using your username / password at MyGarmin.com

  • On the left side of the screen click on "Shop for more maps"
  • Click on "View additional maps for this product"
  • Browse down to "City Navigator Australia and NZ" and click it.
  • Follow the prompts to buy and download the map
If you need help to download or install the map have a look at this link before buying the map http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

I just purchased a Garmin NUVI 3750 GPS from JB HI FI and was told I was intitled to a life time map guarantee with three map downloads a year. I have proof of purchase and need to know where I register...


To register;

  • Connect your satnav to your computer
  • Go to www.garmin.com
  • Select your country from the drop-down list
  • Click on the "myGarmin" tab at the top of the page
  • Click on "Register your garmin product"
  • Click on "Automotive" and follow the prompts
You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe as you'll need them to update your maps.

It's unusual to get a lifetime update for maps with a garmin satnav. This may be a special offer from the dealer but I would be suspicious. To check for updates after you have registered

  • Go to www.garmin.com
  • Click on the myGarmin tab and log in using your username and password
  • Click on the "myMaps" tab at the top of the page.
The maps on your satnav should be shown here. If there's an update available it will be shown beside it. (otherwise it will say "no update available") If there's an update available click on the "UPDATE AVAILABLE" link and follow the prompts. You'll soon find out if they want money of if you have a lifetime update.

How do I update my Garmin


You actually have to buy a cable to do that, it's a mini-USB to USB cable. It normally goes for a few bucks..here is a link for you.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812816057

There are other brands and lenghts but I think you get the idea now, right? Make sure that the mini connection matches the back of the Nuvi's connection, if you have an electronic store near your house take it with you and show the salesperson.

As for updating the unit itself, well you have to purchase the maps from Gamin. If you just bought it, you may qualify for a free map update when you register the unit. Click on the following link..

https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/createNewAccount.faces?target=/mygarmin/registration/registrationHome.htm

Register for an account, it's important that you do. Specially if you start purchasing maps from them, they save all that info for you so if your computer crashes you can just reinstall all your maps again using the codes they save for you. Then register your NUVI and see if you qualify...Good Luck!!

Updating to new street software


Go to the Support screen at Garmin. They will send you both the Username and Password as long as you send them the email address. Garmin doesn't dump accounts once registered - it's still in their files.
