Make sure you download the latest drivers from the website, then install them, then restart computer. Then turn on device, then plug to pc.

Register tomtom

You need to find out which software is compatible with your device: TomTom Home or MyDriveConnect.
Once you determine which software you need, download and install it on your computer. Connect the GPS to the computer. The TomTom software will start running and hopefully recognize the device.
By creating an account using your email address you will link (associate) the device with the email address. And that constitutes registration.

Garmin nuvi 205 is not recognized by garmin updater or by garmin site while trying to register

Make sure that your 205 is fully charged and that the usb cable is plugged directly into a usb port on your computer and not thru a usb hub.

Garmin Nuvi 1450 is not found by dashboard or by the Garmin Map Update when connected to the computer, although the computer, itself, recognizes it correctly.

Have you registered your device at Garmin and downloaded the latest version of Garmin Updater? Also connect the usb cable directly to a port on your computer and not thru a usb hub.
I have attached the link to Garmin. thanks for using FixYa.

We are trying to register our 255w Garmin product, however, it seems like we are going in circles. It won't recognize our password, then it won't recognize our username, then it says our password has...

I would first clear your cookies in your web browser.....

Try to connect again

All Garmin GPS systems are Registered wih Garmin to unlock the map data, so every owner has to call to get their gps' working.

If you say you Registered your product you can give them your Serial number and personal info so they can help you out and delete the account it was under.

So if it didn't work the first time and they have no records of it, all you would need to do now is to Re-Register

Trying to update but my computer does not recognize the device or port

Same issue on Mac OSX 10.4.1 with my SP 2720. Just purchased and is in excellent condition, never registered. Double checked all connections, downloaded and re-downloaded updater. Updater continues to say cannot find device. Tried other USB cables, ports, turned on/off, etc... Nothing. Would LOVE to know what resolutions others have found. Please let us know!

Register my tomtom

To update your unit you must create an account by supplying a valid email address. I suppose this is akin to a registration.
To effect that you install the Tomtom Home software on your computer. Then you connect the unit to the computer. When it asks you if you want to connect to the computer, tap Yes and the HOME software will open allowing you to update maps etc. You will be asked to create an account.

Computer not recognizing usb connected nav device

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.

Unable to Register my Garmin 760

Go into your PC's Device Manager and make sure the computer is recognizing that your Nuvi is connected to it. If not, y0ou might need a driver, for USB, or your plug isn't working correctly. Contact customer support
