There is no software for your etrex GPS to install on your computer. You can, however, purchase Garmin maps to install onto your GPS. When you purchase this mapping software, it will include a copy of Mapsource, which is used to upload and download tracks and waypoints to your unit.

I want to update the maps in my IGO 8 Navigation device. Can you help please?

Go to Garmins website and download the Garmin Express? software. Look on Garmins site for the update unit software. Install the software. Hook the device up to your computer then wait for software to install drivers. Once you have done that-then open the garmin software you installed. Software should take it from there.

I try to download track from GPS by DNR Garmin but not able and show me that check on you have the latest firmware installed on your GPS


The easiest way to check to see if you are on the most current version of a firmware is to try updating it using Garmins WebUpdater Software, If you are at the most current version it will ask you to re-install the firmware. Here is a link to the software download.

Hope this helps!

If your garmin came with lifetime map updates you will get them for free. The normal updates for your unit that makes it perform better are all free. You will need to install a program on Garmins website called web updater that will look for updates for your unit for you. But first you need to set up a account on Garmins web site. Click the link below or copy and paste it into your web browser.

When you get to Garmins web page look at the upper right hand corner of the page where it says My Garmin click on that and set up your account from there you can then download the web updater software and purchase new maps or update your maps if your entitled for free maps.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a Yes I was helped on the page your reading this email on. Thank you.

Hi there, I wish to install the navigation map for canada. I bought my product in singapore with pre-installed for singapore and malaysia. Please advise. Thanks

In order to install new maps they need to be purchased through garmin at there website If you currently have the CD's for the area there is a plug-in on Garmins website that you will also need to install also. That piece of software is on their website under software. Once that is installed you will need to attach your unit to your computer with a USB cable if you don't have one garmin can sell you one, but you will find it much cheaper on Ebay, Garmins is a little over priced. Put the CD's in your computer and let the software run. It should prompt you the rest of the way on the install. Ill be honest with you I have never heard of anyone running two different countries on their garmin but if you have room on your hard drive it should work. But as a safe guard send off an email to Garmins tech support just to make sure your not going to experience any problems with two different countries on your unit. garmin usually get back to you in 24 hours with their response.

I hope this helps you out if so please give me a Yes that I did help you out. Thank you.

Comes up "No detailed maps

I had the same model of Garmin that you currently have now. I would only get that message when the maps were not current. You can go to Garmins website and they will sell you the current CD with all of the current maps for your area. You install the CD on your computer and then connect your Garmin with a USB cable to your computer and it will then download the latest maps on to your Garmin unit. Garmin updates their maps once or twice a year I think. Go to to see the pricing for the current CD for your area.

I hope this helps you out

My sound has stopped working completely, nuvi 660

have you tried resetting the  device?
usually there is a small pin like hole in the back of the device. might seem stupid to ask but is it possible you muted the sound. 
if you contact the store you bought it from they will give you garmins number for support or you may find it online.
