Question about Garmin Nuvi 350 Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

When trying to install nuMaps, it tells me that my serial # is registered to someone else. This is a replacement unit sent to me by Garmin when I returned mine for repair. It's a different serial number than my original unit. I tried to call Support yesterday and was told that it would be over 30 minutes in the "hold" queue. Ridiculous customer service. Anyone have any suggestions?

How can upgrade my garmin nuvi 255w gps?


Hello,

Using the Garmin WebUpdater will update the operating software.
http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Map updates subscriptions are available as lifetime or onetime updates and are registered to the map that is installed on the Nuvi.
http://www.gpscity.com/garmin-numaps-north-america-lifetime-updates.html

http://www.gpscity.com/garmin-numaps-update-city-navigator-nt-2012-north-america.html

The Nuvi 255w is an older unit and is probably due to be replaced. Once the battery dies on the unit, it can not be replaced easily.

There are a number of Garmin GPSs that come with lifetime map updates.

I FOUND A GARMIN NUVI 1300.I NEED TO FIND OUT THE SECURITY CODE?CANT POWER UP WERE THE CODE ORIGINATED BECAUSE I DONT KNOW WHERE THAT WAS.CAN YOU TELL ME ANOTHER WAY?


You can Not get the security code.... the unit has to be sent back to Garmin to be unlocked with the proper receipts..

All Garmin units are registered by the serial number on them, this is so no thief would be able to use them, or If Found they would be able to locate the proper owner to Return it.......

Since this was found and very expensive unit, garmin can at will pipoint this unit when activated.. its a gps


Best thing to do is be that good citizen and give Garmin a call,

Garmin 660 sat nav


I would take it back and demand a new one or replacement one. Some how someone must of you your serial number to register there, and now garmin seem to think that yours is stolen. Even though it is not. Garmin will lock the unit if a product gets, stolen and if someone else will try to update.
