    Garmin GPS 459= (1994-1995). Unit not used for 8 years. Was stored without batteries. Needed it as a backup. When I installed batteries, it had retained all of the original waypoints - BUT it cannot locate satellites. After a while, it shuts off although it shouldn't.

To bring your Garmin 45 XL back to life ( reset ) hold down page and start untill the screen comes on. It will take up to twenty minutes to locate your available satelites..

Good luck

On my 45xl I was able to reset it (lost all my data too) by pressing start and mark at the same time and holding them down. It took over an hour for it to find a fix but it finally did.

I bought a new garmin 1250 car gps. I am trying to update the maps. But i didn't get any cable for connection between gps and laptop. What is the procedure to update the maps could you please explain...


Please make sure you are connecting directly to a port on the laptop and not thru a usb hub. Also try another usb port.Then go to the Garmin website and register and download there update software. Make sure the battery is fully charged. I will attach a link to the Garmin site which will walk you through the update process.

You can update the software at no charge from Garmin. Get a mini USB cable, connect the Nuvi to your PC, go to Garmin.com.
The software updates are free, maps cost!

Garmin etrex legend not acquiring satelites


Updating the software is always a good idea, the latest version is 3.90. It made my trusty old blue Legend a LOT faster.

Garmin etrex legend


I had this problem today, updated the software, now the unit seems to be working perfectly. The unit "crashes" (single line down screen center) as soon as it get enough satelites to work with WAAS.

Go to Garmin site for software updates. Download and install the WebUpdater. Once or unit is hooked up to your computer and you have internet access, the software will download and update your GPS with the latest software fixes. I had software Version 3.7. For the Legend, Version 3.9 fixes the problems with WAAS.
