The cable you need is called a "mini USB cable". It has a mini USB connector on one end and a usb cable on the other. It can be bought in most computer shops once you know what it's called. If you can't get one they're easily available on line. Amazon has them at http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-27005-Mini-B-Cable/dp/B000067RVL
or if you put "mini USB cable" in google it will come up with plenty places that sell it.

My gps is outdated by about 3 years,how do i update it? do i have to buy a disc or do it on my computor?


The best way is to do it on your computer. Make sure the gps is fully charged then go to the Garmin links below. Register your unit and then download Garmin updater then connect your gps via a usb cable. The software will update the gps but any new maps will have to be purchased. The update process can take a few hours even with high speed internet. Follow the instructions to the letter after the updates have been downloaded. Be patient and do not rush it. It will take a few minutes for the gps to reboot after all the updates.

Where may I update my garmin nuvi 250w for free?


Garmin offers two kinds of updates on its website: software updates are free. Map updates are not. You'll need a USB cable to connect the Garmin to your computer. Then go to http://www.garmin.com
On the web site, first register your product. Then look for "Support" and follow their instructions for updating your software. After you've done that, look for "Maps" on the menu at the top of the screen. You can either purchase updates one at a time, or buy a lifetime (of your device) subscription. By the way, maps are huge files, so plan on it taking several hours to update your maps even with a fast internet connection.

Mt nuvi 3750 can not be found by 3 computors, says no devise found ? what could my problem be ? 2 pc's with win 7 , one with win xp, all i want to do is update my garmin..


Try a different USB cable.

The likelihood that 3 computers all have a failed USB ports is pretty slim. Using the same USB cable to connect the 3750 to them however throws suspicion to a defective USB cable. If it still doesn't work with a different cable - then it could be the 3750. Before doing anything else, check it out with the new cable on several computers. If it still fails to connect, contact Garmin Support.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

How do i update my garmin nuvi 250? it tells me it needs to be updated.


Garmin is telling you to update your Map, its wants you to buy a New Map which cost around 50 or 60 dollars.....your unit will work find for now unless you need the new map 2011 it just has the newer streets and highways. Anything over 2 years old should have a newer Map..

With the gps Off

plug in your gps to your computer using a USB cable (most cameras connect to your computer with the same usb cable)

your computer with detect new hardware ( usb ) a pop up box will come up, minimise it

next

go to www.MyGarmin.com the Garmin site will detect your pluged-in unit and let your update your Map

It will say to download WebUpDater utility to transfer your map to your gps

Make sure you register your unit with Garmin at that time

I just want a free garmin nuvi 250 map upgrade


Garmin never provided free map updates. Either buy the current version or buy the lifetime subscription. Go to Garmin.com
I bought the lifetime one. Saved me hundreds of dollars so far.
I've updated 6 times already!!

First you have to set up an account at Garmin using the serial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmware update for free.
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

I want to update my navi 250 for free, any ideas?


The only way to get a map update cheaper would be to buy the lifetime update, which lets you update your unit up to 4 times/year (by downloads from their homepage) for a fix sum only slighly more expansiver than the regular update.
By doing more than one update however, the price per update is almost half of just buying an onetime update.
