I do not have a problem with my Garmion 260 unit. My problem is the Garmin web page to register my unit. I can't get past the password. Their system says I'm uning @*( ) ^ etc but I'm not and as you can tell my keyboard is working fine, but their system will not let me go any further. I want to register my unit and can't and may be order an AC adaptor.

How do i register my new garmin 265w?


You need to go to Garmins web site the link is below just click the link or copy an paste it in to your web browser here is the link

www.garmin.com

Once you get to Garmins web page look at the top of the page to the right where it says My Garmin. Click on that and then set up a user name and password. After that you can register your new Garmin and download any updates that are available. In order to download the updates you will need a USB cable (his will hook up your Garmin to your computer) if your unit did not come with one you can buy it from the store you bought your unit from, but in all honesty you will get it cheaper on ebay.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a Yes on the web page you received this response from. Thank you.

Hi, I've been trying to register our new nuvi 255w


Hi!

BEFORE you try to log in to their website, you MUST create an account.
Here's the link to that page:
https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/registrationGettingStarted.htm

Under My Garmin sign in, there's a "Don't have an account? Create one"

Put your full name, email addy, a username, password (6 character minimum) and confirm password in the appropriate fields. THEN you'll be in business to register your product!

Hope this is helpful to you.
Good Luck!

Garmin Nuvi PIN reset?


I think the true purpose of the pin is for another income stream to garmin they want $110 to unlock it. If not then why not just register a pin when you register for the warranty then just use your MY GARMIN to get it when you need it???

Re: Not sayinstreet names.
After you turn on your unit touch the wrench icon in the bottom right of the screen, this will take you to a menu which features "Settings" in the upper left of the screen. Touch "settings" and scroll down to "language" by using the up and down buttons in the lower right of the screen (down 1 should do it). Touch "Language" and in the voice category find and select "American English - Jill (TTS)". This is the voice that will give you Text To Speech (TTS) speaking the street names in English. If you prefer Spanish or French, find the appropriate catergories with "(TTS)" beside them - "Espanol Americas - Paulina (TTS)" and "Francais Canadien - Julie (TTS)" respectively. Any other selection will only give directional instructions such as "turn left in XXX".

After you have selected your voice press "OK" and back out to your main menu showing "Where to?" and View Map".

Now, when you navigate, you should hear an American female voice giving you directions by street name - assuming your volume is high enough to hear it.

RE: The computer icon displaying when you try to use your unit in the car with the 12 VDC cord.
You probably have a problem with the cord. The pin length in the USB style connector is critical and if it doesn't match up just right the GPS thinks it is hooked up to a computer. If you know someone who has a Garmin NUVI try using their cord and see if you have the same problem. Either way, call Garmin and see if they will send you a replacement cord or otherwise help fix the problem.
