Theproblem is with the computer, try using a different computer to load the update, since the software and the sat nav are OK, the update should work fine from a different PC.

Are updates available?


Register your product and download Garmin Express to your computer. Connect the unit to the computer via USB cable and Garmin Express will open, Select your unit and it will tell you what updates are available to the Unit software, voices, car and bike symbols and of course map updates. Maps are usually updated about every 4 months. If you ever drive down a new road it is fun on the display as it looks like you are slipping and sliding in a field.

Do i get a free map update for the just purchased Garmin nuvi 3790T How about speed camera.


Garmin provides free online map updates (if available) within 90 days after purchase. A purchase is recorded when the Garmin Nuvi detects a certain travel speed or when the Nuvi is registered at MyGarmin.com

To qualify for free Map updates, register the Garmin Nuvi at MyGarmin.com using serial number and owner name.

A map update is a large download - which can take considerable amounts of time. When updating a Garmin map with a PC one needs at least 5Gb of free space at the C drive.

Where can I find free Garmin Nuvi Map Updates?


Sorry, no free maps. I know I've tried. You either live with the old map or but the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOUR Garmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:
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.

Garmin Mapsource NT 2009 problem


your isp makes no difference and garmin should not tell you this. All the information you need should be on that dvd you bought. My suggestion is to disconnect from the Internet, uninstall the nt 2009, restart your computer, then reinstall the program without reconnecting to the Internet. This has worked for me in the past. My email address is cfoster16@comcast.net. If you need further help, I'd be happy to help you.
