How to register my 1450lm


Hello,

Create an account on Garmin's website and register the GPS using the serial number or plugging the GPS into the computer after downloading the Garmin communicator plugin.
The Garmin communicator plugin is an application that allows the GPS to communicate with the Garmin website.

https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/login.htm?service=https%3A%2F%2Fmy.garmin.com%2Fmygarmin%2Fcustomers%2FmyGarminHome.faces

After the GPS is registered, there will be a tab for the "Dashboard" and with the GPS connected to the computer, the dashboard will detect the serial number of the GPS and let you know if there are any software or map updates available for it.
The Garmin WebUpdater program can also be used for updating just the software (firmware) of the GPS and is a free download.

I cannot register my garmin nuvi 1450LMT. I have followed the instructions - and get part way, but seems the connection between Garmin and computer will not connect. HELP!


Hello,

The Garmin Communicator Plugin will need to be installed on the computer.
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/

Also, you may want to check the data cable and that it is the proper one.
It should be Garmin part number 010-10723-01.

My computer windows XP can't see/recognize my garmin nuvi 1250. I just bought it .The garmin was made in Taiwan. I have intention to upgrade the map.. coz it is old map (2010).but I cannot register...


Assuming the Garmin communicator plug-in has been installed in the Internet Browser and registered at Garmin.com with a user account - the Garmin goes into (PC) communication mode when its connected to the USB port of a PC.

If that doesn't happen - i'd suspect the USB cable first.

Assuming the cable is ok - including the USB port of the PC - the Garmin must go into (PC) communication mode. If not the Garmin USB jack could be defective.

I have been trying to register my new nuvi 1410 which i bought on saturday . I get as far as " Please wait while communicator plugin detects your connected device " How long should this take ?


Please make sure that you are connecting the usb cable directly to a usb port on your computer and NOT through a usb hub. Then make sure you are registered with Garmin and have downloaded the latest Garmin updater software. Make sure that the unit is fully charged. Once it is connected and recognized the map update can take hours even with a fast internet connection.
Thanks for using FixYa.
Here is the link to Garmin to get started correctly:
