    I am using windows XP and have the same problem. After downloading and starting the installation proces (after accepting the terms and agreements and clicking to the first next page that tells you to connetc the Ant stick), after that my computer freezes. Contacted Garmin, they only refer to the website for downlaoding the same software...........

    I am trying to figure out how to download garmin on my pioneer AVH-X2600BT. I have seen people download garmin onto a flash drive and then install it that way but I am not tech savvy enough to figure that out. I am installing this in my 06 Grand Prix and would like some help as to what I should do.

Reboot the computer in safe mode. (HIT F8 during the startup) then after the computer loads put the ANT stick in the USB slot and it will then be recognized.

remove it and then reboot normally. Now simply reinsert the ANT stick after starting the ANT agent.

worked like a charm

enjoy

My Garmin Nuvi 255w no longer works. It just shows a message saying "System Software Missing". I use a MacBook. I don't know if that will change what I might need to do to fix this but so far...


Hello there,
The solution to this problem simply requires you to connect the nuvi to a computer. The start up files are corrupt, therefore causing it not to run properly.
You will have to download the web updater of garmin on your computer, then you connect the nuvi using the usb cable to the computer, then you update the software of the device using the webupdater.
That is how to solve the problem. Other than that, nothing else. Just try to get a friend with a PC to do this for you.
Hope this information helped. Goodluck Elect_Comp

Does your Garmin Nuvi 205 or 205W get stuck or freeze at startup or when loading maps?

One trick to try when your GPS is acting up is to perform a Hard Reset.

Occasionally, your GPS may not start properly at all, and display a 'System Software Missing" message. Today's tip will describe how to restore your Nuvi GPS system software using Garmin Webupdater.

  1. The first step is to download the WebUpdater software.
  2. Plug in your Nuvi GPS into your PC with the USB cord.
  3. Run the WebUpdater program to install it to your PC and update the system software of your GPS.

Your Garmin Nuvi should be running as good as new.

My computer will not recognized my Garmin. Need to download drivers cant find driver. Can you hlep?


What does the pc say when you connect it? Normally you wont need to install any drivers, try to change the usb port, most of the time this helps. (maybe you have to turn the gps on when you connect it.)

Can't communicate between Garmin Nuvi and computer? Get an error message that says some devices have been found but none contain the necessary...


You must use the newest Software (free) from Garmin.
Start with the newest program for YOUR computer BEFORE you plug in your Garmin:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After 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.

Try three things:

2)Do a Master reset
3)Try doing a full software update by getting the free program from Garmin called WebUpdater.

Download update problem


Are you trying to update a Nuvi that already has European maps installed or are you trying to install European maps into a Nuvi that does not already have them?

If it's a map update, are you getting the error when you download the update to pc, or when you are trying to install the update to the Nuvi?

When I install US map updates into a streetpilot or Nuvi, it typically ends with a download error but the maps do in fact get updated and the new software versions are shown in the setup menus.

The Garmin rep I spoke with says that is normal.

If you are in the United States, I can get you maps, updates, and even install them for you if you wish.

Feel free to shoot me a message if you're interested.

Cannot download courses to garmin


Had same problem. It's a software download problem that can't be solved online. Tech support said they would immediately send me a new unit with software preloaded. When it arrives (talked with them just 24 hrs ago) I am to call them back so the account can be transferred to new unit. I then send the old one back to them. Hope it works out OK.

How to update softwrae


The simplest thing to do is as follows: Go to the following website-

http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Follow the instructions from there which state:

WebUpdater is a free application that lets you update your unit software from home. Download it once at the link below, and you can check for and install software updates without using your Internet web browser. Simply run WebUpdater from your computer, and it will do all of the work for you.
Step 1: Download and Install WebUpdater Click the link above to download WebUpdater. Next follow the screen prompts to install the application on your pc. If you have already installed WebUpdater on your computer, skip to step 2.
WebUpdater updates most Garmin products, excluding Palm and Pocket PC devices, fixed-mount marine units, chartplotters, fishfinders and certain discontinued units we no longer support. It does not perform Beta updates. WebUpdater only updates unit software. See our All Updates & Downloads web page for related utilities, drivers, add-ons and the unit software for the excluded units mentioned above.


Step 2: Connect GPS to PC and Run WebUpdater After 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".

Hope this helps.

If there is, right click it and choose update driver. Then follow the prompts to locate the new driver. This shou;d solve the problem.
