Download & install the Garmin Web Updater for your computer from their page at:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27

Connect your nuvi to your computer with the USB cable and allow the computer recognize it.

Run the Web Updater program and follow the prompts to update the GPS. When completed, remove the GPS.

The first time that you connect the GPS to the traffic receiver, the GPS will update the software in it. It may take a minute or two to complete. If you have any problems, you can contact Garmin Customer Support at the numbers below:

I believe in that unit the traffic receiver is in the power cord, where it plugs into the car socket. Make sure you're using the right cord (one that has a traffic receiver in it), and that it's plugged in - should show a green light where it's plugged into the car.

How do I set up the traffic message channel?


Hello,

There is no set up required to receive your traffic updates, all you need to do is make sure your 1490 is plugged into the cigarette power, and you will be receiving updates. The units traffic receiver is built into the power cord.

My 265WTS says to subscibe to the traffic reportsI have to file the unit's I.D number. Where do I do that?


Hello,

your nuvi will receive its traffic updates through an FM channel that requires no subscriptions. The receiver is located in the 12v power cable so aslong as you are powered you should receive updates.

Hope this helps!

I AM TRYING TO GET A TRAFFIC SUBSCRIPTION CODE TO ENTER MY RECEIVER;3815168628 THANKS


In Garmin nuvi most free traffic subscriptions are automatic in Canada. Just turn the unit on by plugging the adapter into the cigarette lighter in your car, wait few minutes and it should connect by itself . In Garmin nuvi 765 a little icon of two cars will appear near the top left corner of your map, with it you can change to the traffic map. When the icon is green you are in the area covered by the free traffic subscription, when it is yellow you are approaching the area, when it is gray you are out of the area covered by the traffic service.
