Hi and Welcome to Fixya.com!

Garmin's site can be a little difficult to navigate sometime, so let's see if this helps:

  1. First, go to this link: https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/customers/myGarminHome.faces
  2. Look to the left of the screen and note the top line that reads: Register your Garmin product. Note that the word register is a link, when you put your cursor over it. Click that.
  3. Look at the column to the left of the sign in screen. You will see that there is a link called: create an account, click that link.
  4. The next screen will allow you to create a MyGarmin account. Just fill in the fields and click next.
  5. I can't get to the next screen without filling out a registration so I will leave you here.....
Anyway, once you've created your account, you can go to other places to do whatever you desire including updating your maps.

Thanks again for using FixYa!

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.
If it hasn’t, please do not assign a rating just yet. Please post back as to what steps you took, results, etc, and I will try to assist you further. I am at your service.

I want to register my nuvi 2589 LMT


Go to the Garmin website. If you have an account, log in. If you do not have an account, then make one. The site will allow you to register your device onto your account. You can then download and install Garmin Express, which will provide you with any software and map updates. To use Garmin Express, just plug your GPS into your PC, open the program, and follow the instructions it provides.

Tomtom update maps free


You would (normally, first) connect your TomTom device with the TomTom website (www.TomTom.com) using MyTomTom (or TomTom HOME) software.

This assumes you have already (previously) connected your TomTom to a PC, created your TomTom account and registered the device at the TomTom.com website.

Then , you'll want to go through the steps to activate your LifeTime Map Update Service.

Hi, I've been trying to register our new nuvi 255w


Hi!

BEFORE you try to log in to their website, you MUST create an account.
Here's the link to that page:
https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/registrationGettingStarted.htm

Under My Garmin sign in, there's a "Don't have an account? Create one"

Put your full name, email addy, a username, password (6 character minimum) and confirm password in the appropriate fields. THEN you'll be in business to register your product!

Hope this is helpful to you.
Good Luck!

How update maps?


With access to the internet go to the Garmin website. http://www8.garmin.com/updatemaps/

If you have a newer GPS you might be eligible for a free map update(if not go to next paragraph). If so there is an icon where it says "free" that when you click on it, it will ask you to type in the serial number which is on the bottom of your GPS. This will lead you step by step through the process which will involve you to create an account with Garmin and also registering your product. You may also want to update your software as well which you will find on your "Dashboard" when you have your account through Garmin.

If it is past 60 days since your purchase of your GPS you will need to purchase your map updates. At the website in the beginning of this post you may select either one update or a lifetime map update. Select the one you wish to choose. Then choose the map you want to update and go through purchasing your map. You may be asked if you want a disk update or a download. The download is the easiest and updates it right away but don't use this if you have dial-up. You will be takes through the process on how to update your maps which will include creating an account through Garmin if you don't have one and registering your GPS. It will walk you through these steps. Conact me if you have questions

I HAVE A Garmin Nuvi 255W


First, what version of maps do you have? 2009? If so, there's no reason to update at this time.

To register, just go to https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/marketing/register.htm and create an account. You'll need to create a user name and password and then enter in your units serial number which is located on the decal on the bottom rear of your unit.

Once you have an account established, you can then shop the Garmin store and buy whatever you want.
