Garmin 276c not recognized after upgrade

I have been using mapsource for a few years. I installed TOPO2008, and now when I try to transfer points, the PC does not recognize the GPS. I re-installed TOPO2008, used web updater and re-installed USB driver. The PC still will not "Find" the GPS unit. No other cables are connected to the PC during these attempts.

Any ideas?

Verify that you have the correct basemap for the country that you are in. There are two maps inside a new Garmin. The basemap which shows all the major highways and mapsource which shows all the street. If you don't have the correct basemap try changing 'Navigation' Advoidance to avoid highways and Toll Roads.

SOURCE: Garmin zumo 550 map update problem

  1. Make a backup of your Zumo by copying all the file to your computer.
  2. Using your PC and MapSource select all the maps then send them to a SD memory card need 2Gig or bigger card.
  3. Try to rename this file to gmapprom.img and replace the same named file in your zumo. (I haven't tried this personally, so if it fails, just replace this with your backup and all will be as it was.)
  4. If this fails, you can use the SD memory card in your zumo and it will use this map instead, but it will take longer to boot your zumo.

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


You have use the unlock wizard to install the key that is provided with the software. When I bought my Mapsource CitySelect, it came with two keys. The way Garmin does it is, you can install the software as many times as you want on as many machines as you want, but can transfer the maps, data, etc ONLY to unlocked devices. Last I checked Garmin wanted $75 for additional unlocks. Some data is not locked, like Topo maps and some tide points since this data is obtained (by Garmin) from the gov't, which is free for us (wel, minus taxes we pay). Contact Garmin support, they are very attentive.

Mapsource not recognizing Garmin type files


.img files do not open directly in Mapsource. You will need one of the many freewares available on the net. I use MapSetToolKit. The file is available at http://cypherman1.googlepages.com/. You can find out how to use this software from http://cypherman1.googlepages.com/intruction_en.

I am the registered owner of a Garmin 276C purchased in the USA some years ago.I registered with Garmin and loaded the device onto my Computer.Since then I downloaded Maps etc as usual.Now for some unknown...


You may have to go to the Garmin.com site and download the drivers and re-install them. I'm assuming you have Mapsource installed on your PC? Once you get the drivers reinstalled, and your PC recognizing your unit, I'd highly recommend upgrading your unit software to the latest version. The operating manual can also be downloaded at that location. If this solves the problem, please come back and let us know.

Downloading map to 276C


I think your problem, as it was my also, is the memory card. I tried with a friend of mine's data card (memory) and is working fine, I sent my card to garming after I talk to them over the phone for an exchange. I have a 276C with 512Mb data card. I hope this help you to solve it. Javier Martinez Valencia-Venezuela
