Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Garmin Unit 260 lrg

My unit is functionning properly - I went to the Garmin website to download for free upgrade. Upon installation, the system requests a PRODUCT KEY. I searched everywhere for it.... cannot find. Can you please let me know what my produce key is???? so I can complete the download. This number is not on the invoice, not in the instruction manual - the website references that this could be found on the CD when installing the product however when I purchased, there was no CD as product was already installed.
thanks

Yeah that's something to call Garmin about. They are the only ones that would know your "Product Key". If they don't know it, keep looking around it!

Upgrades for garminc330


Upgrade maps are only produced maybe once a year so maybe none available yet. You should be able to download them from their website. However-they are not free.

Once updated please allow the unit to reboot which will ensure the software successfully installs.



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"
Garmin Communicator Communicator Plugin is properly installed and up to date, version 2.9.1.0. (Dec 21, 2009) If after following all the above the final steps would be to perform a master reset.

  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers on. After 5-10 seconds you will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes, and wait

The device will automatically reset. Please follow the on screen prompts on the nuvi and when completed place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.

Can i down load golf courses to my garmin 260 i was told at the store this was possibble but i cant find any info on the garmin 260 gps on the garmin web site to tell me that i can do this. Or do i have to...


It's "possible" to use the 260 as a golf GPS unit, but it probably isn't going to be the golf tool the guy at the store promised.

1. There aren't any golf maps available for this unit, other than ones that have been created by users. 2. The 260 displays distance in feet or miles: is that a 5-iron? 3. The battery life is about 9 holes on the Nuvi series.

On the other hand, if you want to have a navigation GPS and also use it on the golf course, then you can check out the details on this website:
http://www.wideopenwest.com/~don_barger/nuvi-software.html

There are free maps for download and a web-based tool for creating your own golf maps.

Yes it does.
You would have to pay for the Map
Yes, it can give directions in Spanish
You'll have to download that language (free) from Garmin.
But before you do anything you must download the free Garmin UPDATER

You can upgrade the unit software for free. I think you are trying to update the installed maps, which isn't a free feature.

Did you try to upgrade your Garmin with 2008 maps? If you have the map registration code then you will have to go to garmin's website and get an unlock code. You will need the registration code and also the unit serial number before you can get a new unlock code. The unlock code is base upon your unit serial number and will only work with that unit.
