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.)

Yesterday, I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 2360LMT for my grandfather. I have read the instructions on how to register it but now, I have the usb connected to the computer and the Garmin, my computer will not...



Here is what you need to do to update the map your Garmi nuvi 2360lmt; first make sure the unit is fully charged, then go to the Garmin web site and register your product. Next download Garmin Updater and connect your nuvi with a USB cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. I would also try a different usb port. See if it show up in Computer or My computer in Windows 7/Vista or XP.
Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. When done follow the instructions on your screen. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

I have been trying to register my new nuvi 1410 which i bought on saturday . I get as far as " Please wait while communicator plugin detects your connected device " How long should this take ?


Please make sure that you are connecting the usb cable directly to a usb port on your computer and NOT through a usb hub. Then make sure you are registered with Garmin and have downloaded the latest Garmin updater software. Make sure that the unit is fully charged. Once it is connected and recognized the map update can take hours even with a fast internet connection.
Thanks for using FixYa.
Here is the link to Garmin to get started correctly:

Garmin Nuvi 1450 is not found by mygarmin.com dashboard or by the Garmin Map Update when connected to the computer, although the computer, itself, recognizes it correctly.


Have you registered your device at Garmin and downloaded the latest version of Garmin Updater? Also connect the usb cable directly to a port on your computer and not thru a usb hub.

I never registered the garmin 200, baught it from


you can go HERE and register your nuvi.

after you register it, go HERE and download the Garmin web updater. after you run and install the web updater,start your nuvi and connect it to your computer via the usb cable provided, then start the web updater program if it doesnt start automaticly when your nuvi is connected. then just follow the directions. its pretty much automatic.

Computer can't locate connected nuvi 270


Are you using the latest Garmin program called WEBUPDATER Version 2.9.1.0 that was released about December 2009??
Try again:
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.

Garmin Nuvi 260w not recognized by computer


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

2009 map update not loading


Does it recognise the Nuvi? Are you connecting it through a usb Hub. Are the drivers for the nuvi installed properly? Usually there is a folder named USB, thats where the correct drivers reside, and that's where you tell the computer to look when it asks for the drivers.
