    An hour is way too long. This should only come up for about 15 seconds. This could have happened if you didn't select to "safely remove" the Nuvi from your PC. It's possible that the firmware update was corrupted.



    You need to download Garmin's webupdater and reflash the firmware. if you don't know how to do this please contact me.

How to register the product


Registration is done on line at the Garmin website. You have to plug your Nuvi into your computer to do this. Caution when I did this the first time it wiped out my OS and I had to contact Garmin to restore the system.
