How to download chinese language to my garmin nuvi 1300

I don't know if garmin have a Chinese voice. They probably have and yes it is possible to add voices to the satnav. You need to download and install WEBUPDATER to your computer. It can be downloaded from

When it's installed connect your satnav to your computer and run the WEBUPDATER program. It will search for software updates. Install any that it finds and when it's finished it will give you the option of downloading optional downloads. These include voices. Select the voices you want to download and they will be downloaded to your satnav.

You need to disconnect the satnav safely from your computer, like a memory stick or external harddrive. When it's disconnected start up the satnav and press TOOLS, SETTINGS, LANGUAGE & VOICE. Select the voice you want. All the downloaded voices should be available to you.

How to remove a forgotten PIN from Garmin Nuvi satnav

Nearly every day there's a question asked by Garmin Nuvi satnav owners as to how to change or remove their PIN which they have forgotten. Ideally you should use a PIN that you will never forget or save it somewhere you can get access to it again if you do forget it. However we all make mistakes and so a lot of users end up on this website looking for a solution.

When you set your PIN you get an option to set a Security Location. When you set this your satnav must have satellite reception. When you forget your PIN you go to your Security Location and the satnav will start up without you having to enter the PIN, provided you have a satellite connection. As you cannot see the signal strength bar until you get past the PIN entry screen you won't know if it has accessed satellites or not so you need to give it a while. Also as GPS is not one hundred percent accurate you may need to move around five to ten metres in a gradually widening circle from the security location. This gives you a better chance of getting the exact spot. If all is well your satnav should open but the PIN is still set. To remove the PIN when you get your satnav started
  • Press TOOLS
  • Then press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on some models which don't have the SETTINGS icon)
  • Press SECURITY
  • Press OFF
  • Press OK
Your PIN is now removed. If you want to set a new PIN
  • Press TOOLS
  • Then press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings icon)
  • Press SECURITY
  • Press ON
  • Enter your new PIN
  • Press OK
You then get the option to set a new security location. Again be sure you have a satellite connection.

2. If you have forgotten your PIN but either have not set a security location or forget where it is the only option is to return it to Garmin to get it removed. You must send proof of ownership along with the satnav if you're returning it as the PIN is there to protect satnav owners from thieves. If you need to return the satnav to Garmin you can get their contact details at

I am traveling ion europe and have purchased a set of european maps for my nuvi 1300. i need to transfer the maps from the sd card to the nuvi 1300

If you bought your satnav in the USA don't transfer the maps to your satnav. The USA version of the satnav won't work in Europe. If you bought the satnav in Europe you should only have to plug the SD card into the satnav for it to work.

Can i reinstall map updates without having to pay for it again

1. If you downloaded the map updates from the garmin website you can download them again free if you need to. However if you downloaded them to your computer you may not need to download them again. Connect your satnav to your computer. On your computer click START, then click GARMIN and then MAPINSTALL. If all these are on your computer the map is probably there and will install to your satnav.

2. If it's not on your computer go to and log into myGarmin. Click on myMaps. You will see the name of the map you downloaded previously and under the word DETAILS.
Click on DETAILS and it will bring you to a page where you have the option to download it again. When you're setting up the download and it says download to your satnav if you click on the dropdown arrow you get the option to install it to your computer, you computer and satnav or just your satnav. If you want to install it to your computer so you can reinstall it to your satnav in future or if it all won't fit on your satnav you can select to download to your computer. When it's downloaded it should automatically give you the option of installing to your satnav. Click yes to install. If it doesn't then follow the details in paragraph 1 above to install it.

How do I download maps from the Garmin web site to the SD card in my Nuvi 5000?

To install the map on an SD card you first need to download it to your computer. When you're setting up the download the website normally selects your satnav as the destination. There's a drop down arrow and when you click it you find an option to "update map on the satnav and the computer". Select this option. If the satnav can't take the full map you'll need to select the part to download to the satnav. The full map should download to your computer.
After the download is finished click START on your computer and then ALL PROGRAMS. Click on GARMIN and then on MAPINSTALL. The mapinstall program will also select your satnav as the location for installing the map. When it does click on the drop down arrow and select the drive letter of the SD card. This will install it to the SD card. Note it can take 3 to 4 hours to install depending on the map size. Don't interrupt it while it's installing or you could destroy your satnav.

1390t stopped saying street names and only says distance before turn

Some voices on the satnav don't support street names. It's likely that the voice which used to has become unselected or corrupted.
1. Press Tools, then Settings, then Language and you will see a setting for Voice. Press Voice and change to a different one. If there's not another voice there or the other voice file is corrupted you can download more.
2. Connect your satnav to your computer. Download and install webupdater from and your satnav will look for updates. When it has finished it will give you an option to download voices. Tick the ones you want and click next. When they have been downloaded to your satnav and you have disconnected your satnav from your computer select a new voice as described in paragraph 1 above.

I've bought a Garmin Nuvi 215w. The gps does not display all the road names on the map. Is there any way i can update the firmware?

I don't think updating the firmware will solve the problem however if you want to try you can update the firmware by connecting your satnav to the computer and downloading webupdater from When you have it set up it will automatically check for the latest version of software for your satnav. I don't think that will solve your problem though. The satnav will only show road names that are on the map.

Before trying to update the software try this solution first. On the satnav press Tools, then Settings, then Map. Under Map Detail press whatever it says and you'll get a list of options. Press Most. This will show the most map details and will show any roadnames that are on the map.

Reset navman F10 sat nav

Press and hold the on/off button for ten seconds will re-set the system on the satnav. If the screen freezes after loading the maps then connect the Satnav to a pc via a usb lead and download the latest Service update fom With the Satnav connected to the computer and the download compleated double-click the F10 set-up.Exe and it will update the system on the Satnav. Once complete disconnect the cable and restart the F10. That was the way I sorted mine out after recieving 'little' help from Tech Support from My problem seems to be in the Multi-drop ability of the F10 [program one location and try and add another to plan a route] but I have never got anyhelp from the tech's other than "Buy a Connectivity kit from us and you may be able to use that to fix the problem....". If you get a "Not enough memory to complete update... " message after double clicking the F10 set-up, you will need to go into your F10 Satnav memory and look up some of the saved files from previous routes you have stored in there. I deleated some of these to free memory and it didn't seem to affect the Satnav's programming and allowed the update to complete. My F10 started fine after that. If you need any more help, tech support may be able to suggest something....., just don't hold your breath....
