Question about Garmin GPS 12 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Garmin problem Thank you redbel001, That's exactly how I got into the current problem. I attempted to upload 4.60 obtained from the Garmin website to my functioning GPS12 with the cable from my PC. I was happily running 4.00 before the upload started but now 3.62 is loaded. I checked the site again and confirmed that I downloaded 4.60 not 3.62 to my PC. But now, with 3.62 apparently loaded but not functioning, the Updater returns a message "no updates available". Very frustrating. I had a working GPS and by attempting a proper upgrade, the unit is non-functioning.

I think I found the solution to everyones problem of "upload not present" message on the Garmin GPS12** when trying to update the Firmware. I'm really busy - just picked up my daughter from the airport and a million things to do. I will post again in detail maybe later today-tonight.

Will my garmin approach s1 work in New Zealand. It was purchased in Canada?

The GPS will work anywhere in the world but you have to have New Zealand courses installed. There are NZ courses available:

...but not owning an "Approach" GPS, I cannot advise on obtaining and uploading the required data to this piece of kit.

Has anyone else had trouble uploading documents to a website from hp scan and capture pdf format?

Hi Charlotte,...
Try using a different browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome) from what you're currently attempting to use to upload your document. It could be a compatibility issue with the site and browser. Give it a shot.

After messing around on the Garmin website, I still can't find out whether you can get UK maps for a Garmin Nuvi 205W. Anyone know if there are any free maps and how to install them? MHS

You can find them on the garmin website listed below. The only way to legally obtain them is to buy them and download from the website. That would be my best suggestion, but it is possible that someone may have uploaded a free version via torrents, but this is much riskier. The easiest way to install would be to purchase the micro sd card and insert it directly into your gps.
