Trip & Waypoint Manager should be all you need.

The USB drivers should have been automatically installed when you installed the program. If your computer prompts you for the driver location when you connect your GPS via USB, then you'll just need to reinstall the latest drivers (one time only--after that the computer should automatically detect and use the GPS whenever it is plugged in)

The latest drivers for your unit can be downloaded here. There is a new version (v.2.2.1) as of about one year ago.

I want to update the maps in my IGO 8 Navigation device. Can you help please?


Go to Garmins website and download the Garmin Express? software. Look on Garmins site for the update unit software. Install the software. Hook the device up to your computer then wait for software to install drivers. Once you have done that-then open the garmin software you installed. Software should take it from there.

Need to upgrade maps for ireland


Hello,

The easiest way to do so is purchase mapping on a pre-loaded microSD/SD card and insert them into the unit. I recommend getting all of europe for the cost here is a link http://www.gpscity.ca/garmin-microsd-city-navigator-europe-nt-2011-card-with-adapter.html.

I have a 276C and have a marine charts card in it for navigation. When I have the GPS hooked up to my lap-top, it there a way to view the marine chart on my lap-top screen? I would think this would be a...


Hi!

You require a chart navigation or free viewer program on your laptop to decipher the information your GPS sends and to interface with it.

There are a few of these programs available, but we opted to purchase CAPN Voyager (The CAPN) many years ago and have been quite happy with it for the 16,000 miles of coastal cruising we've done. The program allows us to see our progress in real time on the computer screen and is easy to use

Prior to that, we used Maptech's free chart viewer which allowed me to plan routes and then put the lat/lons into the GPS unit, but had no interface with the GPS to allow us to navigate in real time.

Hope this helps.

It freezes evry time i start my tomtom one xl


Ok it may pay you to upgrade to the latest software for your unit, hook up your GPS to your PC, now using the software that has been Pre-installed, navigate to their website and see if there are any upgrades etc, for your GPS. This may sort your problem out with fresh software. It may be that you need to reinstall the software, there are help FAQ, and more at the website.

My Garmin 765t stopped navigating


There should be a small reset switch on the back of most garmin gps units. with the unit on, depress the reset switch with a pen tip or small object until the unit shuts off and restarts. It may take a little longer to pick up the satellite but it will reque the unit and unlock the navigation screen.

The detailed maps are "locked" all of a sudden!


If this is still happening then go to Kenwood direct, they supplied the unit with the pre loaded software and therefore they should deal with the problem as they are not supposed to lock the software. Kenwood if need be will contact Garmin for you. You may find that they have experienced this problem with other users too.

I am updating my nuvi 200 with map update 2009 of city navigator north america nt. Canada is not loading to my gps through my computer. Looking for a solution.


when updating from the city nav update disc, it will only update the maps currently on the unit. Since Canada isnt included, it will not add it on. What you need is the Pre-programed City navigator chip for Canada. Normally retails around $59.99

Canada does not come pre loaded on those units. The update disc will not add it on either. What you need is the Pre-programed City navigator chip for Canada. Normally retails around $59.99 US
