    Ihave a gpsnuvi360-Iwant to get a new updated Edmonton alberta map-I do not understand the process and would like a step by step detail as I am computer illiterate-It appears that to download I may need a DVD drive which I do not have in my computer as there is too much memory required. What exactly do I need to download and do I just plug my computer in-?I have an apple. Is it just as cheap to order a new preloaded memory card?

    Well, ordering the pre-loaded card would be the better option, as it is hassle free and gives you peace of mind, if you are not too computer savvy...
    As for Apple, I'm afraid I do not have much experience with Macintosh. Generally, though, you just download the update to your computer and use a program (like ActivSync) or whatever came with your device, to synchronize/transfer data between the PC and the GPS...

    Hope that helps. BTW, sorry for the late response. The fixya email servers were down, and I did not receive a notification of your reply. I do apologize.

Hi Mace,

Kindly send an email to and report this issue.

Also, ask your friend to check the spam/junk folders for the password reset email.

Some experts using email services like Yahoo Mail have difficulties in receiving emails from FixYa. So, if your friend is using Yahoo Mail, there can be some delay.

The maps are preloaded. If you want to see what maps are on it press TOOLS (the spanner symbol)
Then press SETTINGS (or LOCALE if your model does not have SETTINGS)
Then press MAPS
Then press MAP INFO
The name of the map installed on your satnav should be shown there

they dont give you a home charger with the unit. here is what you should have received

What's in the Box:
  • nüvi 780
  • Preloaded City Navigator® NT for North America
  • MSN Direct receiver with integrated vehicle power cable
  • 3 months free MSN Direct service*
  • Vehicle suction cup mount**
  • Dashboard disc
  • USB cable
  • Quick start manual
the usb cable supplied with the gps will charge your unit using the usb port off your computer also.

i bought a home charger off ebay to save a few dollars but you can buy them off the garmin website HERE just click the accessories tab and scroll the the bottom of the page.

or go HERE for the listings on ebay

This is definitley a problem. This is basically a factory reset happening over and over. It could be a bad connection inside the unit, like a bad solder joint on a component or something wrong with the CPU or supporting hardware. If it's under warranty then please call Garmin, explain the problem and request an RMA number. Make sure it's registered with them before you call. It will speed up the RMA process.

Good luck!

It tells me: No GPS devise!

Hi folks,

Sorry for such a late reply but have been away. The original problem with my TomTom Go 700 Satnav hasn't been solved. It's just that I was advised by the company (They took it away for checking before returning it untreated) that it would be cheaper to buy a replacement! So that it what I will do!

Best wishes,
