How to register my 1450lm


Hello,

Create an account on Garmin's website and register the GPS using the serial number or plugging the GPS into the computer after downloading the Garmin communicator plugin.
The Garmin communicator plugin is an application that allows the GPS to communicate with the Garmin website.

https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/login.htm?service=https%3A%2F%2Fmy.garmin.com%2Fmygarmin%2Fcustomers%2FmyGarminHome.faces

After the GPS is registered, there will be a tab for the "Dashboard" and with the GPS connected to the computer, the dashboard will detect the serial number of the GPS and let you know if there are any software or map updates available for it.
The Garmin WebUpdater program can also be used for updating just the software (firmware) of the GPS and is a free download.

Why wont my garmin 200w connect to pc


Hello,

Installing the Garmin Communicator plugin should resolve the problem. In most cases, th USB drivers are included with the Communicator plugin that are required for the nuvi to be detected. If it is still undetected after the installation of the plugin, it may be necessary to download and install the latest USB drivers.

How do i upgrade my garmin nuvi 200 gps? (never been upgraded


Hello,

Download and install the Garmin commuicator plugin to your computer
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/
This will allow the nuvi to transfer data back and forth to Garmin's server.
Connect your nuvi to your computer and run the Garmin WebUpdater to update the software on the nuvi.
Download and Install WebUpdater.
To update the mapping, you will need to purchase a map update subscription.
https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm?
Once the subscription is activated and registered to the nuvi, follow the download instructions to download the map. This will usually take from 3 to 4 hours or more depending on your internet download speed.
The nuvi 200 is a discontinued model and you may want to consider upgrading to a new GPS as a new nuvi with lifetime mapping can be purchased for about $150.00.

Hello there, I bought a china brand gps with built in garmin mobile xt, how do install road maps. I'm from the philippines by the way.. Thanks for helping me...


Welcome to FixYa!
To update your map, go to https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm? Choose your device type. I believe Garmin Mobile XT is under the "Phone Devices".
It will ask you to install the Garmin Communicator Plugin, install it and follow the instructions. You may need to connect your GPS to the computer during this process.
I'm not quite sure if a road map for Philippines is available though.
Thank you for using FixYa. Have a great day. Jas247
Note: CDRKing also released a less expensive GPS tailored for Philippines.

IN-nteresting......your manual say "To receive


Go to garmins website www.garmin.com at the top of the page you will see MY GARMIN at the very top to the right. Click on that and a drop down will appear or it will take you directly to the sign up page. You will need to set up a new account with a user name and password. After that whatever you need to do you should be able to because you now set up an account with Garmin.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me some feedback.
