Go and grab a garmin serial lead from somewhere and go to the following link and download the VER4.6 software.

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00146-00

The Garmin web dater may not work because the unit may already have had Ver 4.6. If it does then the web updater will tell you that you already have the latest verson on your unit and won't proceed any further.

You need to download the 4.6 updater by itself.

Hope this helps

Alan

Hi. Is it possible to upload files onto a Garmin GPS 128 device


Here is where to download the manual: http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/82_OwnersManual.pdf

From what I see, I would say no, it appears that the datum is hard loaded.

Gpsmap 180 firmware corrupt


It sounds like it has lost its memory battery. Usually you
would get a "memory battery low" message as it is on its
way out but you don't mention that so perhaps it has
completely failed.

The battery is rechargeable - if you leave it switched off
and loaded with a fresh set of alkalines for a few days it
may recover. If not contact Garmin as they have replaced
many memory batteries free of charge even out of warranty.

I have a 8 year old garmin GPS model 12 that may be dead. When I turn the red power button on the garmin sez "upload not present". Also the rubber at the base near the batteries has rotted. Thanks for any...


I had the same problem and it took me some time to make my cable. I got this info from fix ya. Reload the software for your unit, I googled garmingps12 and went to downloads from the garmin selections.The software is not compatable with vista, so I ended up using my old computer to do the job. http://pfranc.com/projects/g45contr/assemb.htm
This web site gives good information on making your own cable.
I hope all works for you as it did for me. justaxiom

I have a garmin gps 12--s/n 35854358. No auto-locate?


If you haven't used the gps for a while they can try to operate with the incorrect catalog or time. Unless these are both correct it gets lost. Usually you can correct this with a forced reset. There is also a update for this unit which also forces the update.
http://www8.garmin.com/products/gps12/download.html
The data cable sort of screws on and makes contact with 4 pins. This is the little round connector. It does both power and data. The cable is a wee bit pricey from Garmin but you can make them or just get one from ebay.
The reset usually wipes out any saved routes poi's etc so using the data cable will save all of those. To reset the 12 I believe you hold the lower right corner of the screen and then power it on to reset. Then you need to let it rub until it gets the new data which can take 5-50 minutes. Makes sure your batteries are good.
I'd recommend the data cable route (use a 'gasp' non garmin cheap cable) and upload the update at the same time and you should be good to go try and get lost again.

GPS 12 "upload not present"


I have a Garmin GPS 12, which has worked perfectly over the last 10 years until a few days ago. It was on and working fine, I marked a waypoint, turned it off and put it in my pocket. 45 minutes later I pulled it out and when I tried to turn it on it only showed the message "UPLOAD NOT PRESENT". Nothing I did would get it to show me anything different (I tried all kinds of button sequences...holding some down for many seconds, pressing multiple at the same time, etc.). The only thing it would do was turn on and show me that message, or turn off. I called Garmin and they said they could repair it, but that would require shipping it to them. They said it would cost $59 (which included the repair and shipping back to me, but I was responsible for whatever it cost to ship it to them). I asked if they would be able to save my routes and waypoints if they "repair" it, but they couldn't guarantee that. I told them that I heard "reloading the firmware" or "uploading the newest update" might fix it AND keep my routes and waypoints. They told me that might work. I didn't have the PC interface cable that was necessary in order to connect it to my computer to update it, so I asked them what it would cost to buy one from them. They said it would be $38.09 through them, but that I could get it cheaper on the Internet (part # 010-10141-00). Then they said they actually may have some of them sitting around in a box somewhere (I'm assuming they meant used cables). They checked around and found one and shipped it to me at no charge! It arrived in a couple days. Then I just plugged it into one of the serial ports in the back of my computer, plugged the other end into the GPS and turned it on, went to Garmin's website: http://www8.garmin.com/products/gps12/download.html and downloaded version 4.60. I'm not sure what version was on my GPS originally (I obviously couldn't check anymore since it wasn't working), but the user manual that came with it said "Software Version 4.03 or above". It asked me to unzip the downloaded files and stored them on my hard drive at C:garmin. I opened up the file named 460_UPDT.TXT and followed the directions listed there (which are slightly different from the directions listed on the website's update page). One of the steps said to "Turn on your GPS and ensure the Serial Data Format is set to "GARMIN". You can find this setting in Setup Menu -> Interface." I couldn't do this since mine only displayed the message "UPLOAD NOT PRESENT", so I just ignored this step. I opened up the file named UPDATER.EXE and had it "auto-detect" when it asked me which serial port I used. The message on the GPS screen changed to "UPLOAD IN PROGRESS" and it only took about 4 minutes until the upload was done. The GPS screen then changed to the start-up screen where it acquires satellites and asked me to enter my country and state. Everything seems to be back to normal and all my routes and waypoints are still there. Even better, it didn't cost me anything but time.

Garmin problem


I think I found the solution to everyones problem of "upload not present" message on the Garmin GPS12** when trying to update the Firmware. I'm really busy - just picked up my daughter from the airport and a million things to do. I will post again in detail maybe later today-tonight.
