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.)
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 notthru 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
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:
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 have attached the link to Garmin. thanks for using FixYa.
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.
Are you using the latest Garmin program called WEBUPDATER Version 126.96.36.199 that was released about December 2009?? Try again:

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.
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
Go to the Garmin site and download you USB driver. Install the driver with out the GPS connected. Aftter the USB driver is installed reboot you computer and then connect the GPS. Let us know if that works.
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.
