Where do i go to register a new garmin 1450


Make sure your gps is fully charged ...


With the unit Off......

connect your GPS to your computer using the USB cable... (its the same USB cable most cameras use to connect to computers )

your computer will detect new hardware (usb) minimise the pop up box

next

go to www.MyGarmin.com this site will also detect your model unit and let you unlock your Map as soon as you Register..

Garmin will then tell you to download WebUpDater utility to transfer mapping files

*** FYI*** ALL GARMINS HAVE A SECURITY LOCATION...this is a location where you first set up your gps and if you forget the pin number if you lock the unit you must return to the security location to unlock or send your unit to garmin with your receipt of ownership

Do i need to charge the bettrey of my garmin 265wt GPS before using??


YES !!

Make sure you have a fully charged battery before downloading ur maps.... the map download my take up to an hour or so to upload...

once you charge your battery this is what you need to do:

Using the USB cable connect your gps to computer.... ( if you didnt get a usb cable you could use most camera usb cables they connect the same way )

your computer will detect new hardware, a autoplay box will pop up, you can minimise it

next

go to www.MyGarmin.com

it too will detect your new unit and have you Register your GPS.... its free

Garmin will have you download WebUpDater utility this is what you need to transferr and open Maps

follow the easy directions your not long from completion..

********** where you first setup your gps this wil be called your SECURITY LOCATION..... if you ever lock your unit you need a Pin Number to unlock it..... if you forget or lose your Pin Number you must return to the SECURITY LOCATION where you set up to unlock your GPS

Have garmin nuvi 265w forgot security code


Have you ever had it Registered?
If not you have to before any maps are loaded...... with the unit off connect the GPS to your computer using the USB connector cable...(its the same usb connection a camera uses connecting to a computer)..
Once your computer detects your GPS it will say new hardware found
go to www.MyGarmin.com and Register your unit
Garmin will also detect your model number and let you unlock the maps and firmware
FYI where you set up the GPS will be your SECURITY LOCATION if you ever lose your pin number you would have to travel back to the security location to unlock your unit

MY GPS 72 CANT ACQUIRE SATLITES AGAIN


It sounds to me like the GPS has forgotten exactly where it is on the planet. From your owner's manual (Page 7)

http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/GPS72_OwnersManual.pdf

I think your best bet here would be to iniialize the GPS again.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck!

How do I see the rest of this solution? Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver Problem: Garmin Nuvi GPS won't acquire satellites Solution by: wingflinger (1 solutions) There is a known hardware bug in the...


you should see it now
There is a known hardware bug in the Garmin 600 series relating to the detection of the connection of an external antenna. The GPS is supposed to do this automatically and when it detects an external antenna plugged in it switches out the internal antenna. Unfortunately, this circuitry doesn't work correctly in some versions of the unit and sometimes it get's comfused and thinks there is an external antenna connected when there is not. This causes the behavior you describe because, for all practical purposes, there is no antenna connected.

Garmin can fix this and they've been known to fix it even on units that are out of warranty. There is a fix that can be done by someone with the right equipment and know-how which requires disassembling the unit and bypassing the antenna switch. Not to be attempted by anyone not experienced in micro surface mount PCB re-work.
