connect the unit to the computer using a USB data cable and then go to www.garmin.com and register the unit, if your unit is new you get one free update with-in 90 days if outside that time frame you will have to purchase either a one time update for 49.99 or lifetime updates for 89.99
You have a short in the wire that runs to your unit. Other than holding the wire in the exact location until your charge is complete you would be better off replacing the charging cord. They should be available at your local shop for around $19-$29.00.
Garmin provides free updates through their website for the first 60 days after a new unit is put into service. After that, you'll have to purchase map updates. (Software updates are free, though.)
That said, you should first point your browser to www.Garmin.com and go through the process of downloading and installing their browser extension. You might have to reboot your computer or restart your browser to finish the installation.
Return to Garmin.com and register your nuvi. At some point, it will ask you to connect your nuvi to the computer via the USB cable. Do so. Your computer will also go through the process of installing the drivers necessary to view the nuvi as a storage device (so you can download photos and the like).
Once everything is up, the browser extension will tell you what the status is of your nuvi and of its maps. If you're entitled to a free map update, it will allow you to do so. If you're due for a software update, you can do that, also.
Hi, Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html
Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start
the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can
use the Webupdater to get possible newer software.. It worked for me and my Zumo550 Goodluck Auke
BEFORE you connect the Garmin to your computer you must download the free Garmin program on your computer called UPDATER. Did you do that?

To download the latest unit
software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdaterAFTER installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin
website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect
your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your
computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start",
"Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps. Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.
