You'll need to connect your Nuvi to a computer. You'll be able to get the required software from the Garmin website and register your unit. You'll also be able to do any updates that are required.

Why should I register my new Garmin nuvi 1410 which I have just purchased from Halfords

If you register the unit you will get free software updates and one free map update. The software updates have fixes for how it operates. There are also free gadgets, voices that you can download only if you register. It also activates your warranty. Also if you register the unit and set the security pin lock code and you forget the code or someone steals it Garmin may help you. I will attach a link below to register.
Thanks for using FixYa

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

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.

The maps may just be unselected rather than gone. To select them press the spanner icon (Tools) then press Maps. At the bottom of the screen press Map Info and see if there's a map there. There should be a tick at the side of the map name. If there's not press the map name and the tick should appear. The map will then be selected and should be ok.
If you need to get a new map or map update connect your satnav to your computer. Go to If you have already registered your satnav click on myGarmin and then on myMaps. (Details on how to register are below) Your map should be shown there and if there's an update available click on GET UPDATE to download the updated map. If there's no update and you need to buy a new one click on Shop For More Maps and select the ones you want. Follow the prompts.

Go to and select your country. Click on myGarmin and then on Register Your Garmin Product. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe as you'll need them anytime you want to update your maps.
