You should register it, Garmin gives you free download of 2010 maps. On the GPS go to Tools, Help, use down arrow to find General Information, click it and then scroll to "Registering your Nuvi" Instructions are on the screen. (make sure GPS is connected with USB first.

Is my Garmin nuvi 2797 LMT registered? How do I find out?

If you have a Garmin account, log on. All your registered devices will be listed. If you do not have an account, you need to make one. Then use Garmin Express (download and install from the Garmin site) to identify and register your GPS.

Trying to find where to register my nuvi 1390

Go to the following website:

You can register yourself as well as your Garmin product. If you have the USB cable that should have come with your GPS unit you can plug one end into your GPS, and the other into your computer. After loading a small program the site will automatically register your unit, and then take you to a site that will allow you the choice of downloading maps, extras for the GPS, and other useful items. If you don't have the cable, you can still manually enter the model and serial numbers. Depending on your model number, you are allowed either one free map update if you register within 90 days of your purchase date, or you might have lifetime updates if your model came with that feature.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

When registrating your GPS on myGarmin you should type in your serial number. It's on a tiny label on the back/bottom of the unit, and is the identification number needed to start the registrating process. Your GPS will need to be connected to the PC on the next step.
