There should have been a mini USB cable with it to connect to the computer. You should go back to where you got it and ask for one. If that's not possible they can be bought in most computer shops fairly cheaply. Details on how to update your maps are available at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

How do I convert my sat nav from europe to usa


Some Sat Navs can't convert, If it's bought & set to UK & Ireland maps, then you are stuck. 2nd thing , even if you can use Europe Maps on your Sat Nav, you still will be unable, to load USA maps.
Sat Nav not compatable, You will have to buy a NEW ONE.

Would you like to back up a copy of your Garmin Nuvi 1240 Favorites and Waypoints?

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After a hard reset or loss of data, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
I hope that helps.

Garmin1240. Connected to PC. Now PC icon appears on sat nav & route map vanishes for long periods. How can I get rid of icon ?


Sometimes this problem is caused by a fault with the mini USB socket on the satnav. The lead appears to be pushed fully into the back of the satnav but it's not. Pushing it in further may solve the problem.

Updates for garmin sat nav


To increase the accuracy of your Garmin Nuvi 205W, I recommend you use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device. Software improvements for acquiring satellite lock and location accuracy have been made.

I hope that helps.

Charging while driving(using the cigar plug)


I too just got mine from Santa... it's designed to operate while plugged into the lighter. It also charges the Li ion battery. If the Garmin screen comes on while you are using it I would suspect an error or what ever. (you DID move the little switch on the top left corner to unlock didn't you?) Just call their number 800 800-1020 and ask them. They were most helpful and were there well after the hours posted in the instruction book.
