I have been trying to plug my garmin gps in my computer and update it but it's not acknowledging that it is plugged in. What can I do to fix this?

Try to shut off the computer complety after taking the GPS out and then wait an hour or so then turn on the computer and try again or if your computer needs updating update it first then try to plug it in.

Why is map data is not available

It should be available if you downloaded their update software to your computer. I go into it every so often by connecting the gps to the computer thru their software and check for map updates. If the update is large then you will need a larger memory card to handle the updated maps.

Will not download maps from library computer

You do not need to download the maps from the library computer. All you need to do is, when you connect your gps to your computer, it comes up with an auto play page, select open file to view folder, then you copy maps and paste them in the folder where the maps are read from.
Take not that if the format of the files are not supported on your gps, it will not be able to read the maps. Be sure that the format of the maps are supported by the gps.

How do I update Have lifetime update Oct. 11 09

You must have your satnav registered with garmin to get the updates. If it's not registered connect it to your computer and go to Select your country from the drop-down list. Click on "Register your garmin device" and follow the prompts. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe as you'll need them again when you want to update your maps.

To get the updates go to and log into myGarmin. Click on myMaps. The maps on your satnav will be shown there. Beside the map name there will be a message stating either "No update available" or "Get Update" If it says Get Update connect your satnav to the computer, click on the message and follow the prompts.

How to update my garmine nuvi

To update the maps you need first to register it. Connect it to your computer and go to Select your country and then click on myGarmin. Then click on Register your Garmn Product. Follow the prompts. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Write them down and remember them as you'll need them anytime you update your maps.
After you've registered go into myGarmin and click on myMaps. Your maps will be shown and if there's an update it will show Update Available. Click on this and it'll bring you to the download site. You'll have the option to download if you have broadband or to buy by dvd if you don't. You'll need a credit card to pay.

To update your software: If you're updating the map it will normally first update your software but if you only want to update the software and not the map connect your satnav to your computer and download webupdater from and install it. When it's installed it'll look for updates to your software. Follow the prompts.

I would like to register my GPS and can't seem to do it with my computer so I thought I would call - which is a laugh. How can I do this? I only have one USB port on my computer and that is being used so I...

you can go HERE and register your nuvi.

if you ever want to update it, you can follow the directions below, but you will need a computer with a spare usb port to install any updates you need.

after you register it, go HERE and download the Garmin web updater. after you run and install the web updater,start your nuvi and connect it to your computer via the usb cable provided, then start the web updater program if it doesnt start automaticly when your nuvi is connected. then just follow the directions. its pretty much automatic.

Will my itunes music library play on my Garmin nuvi 760? I dragged and downloaded my itunes music library onto my nuvi 760. When I hooked it up this morning to use it in my car it kept saying it was...

Your Garmin only supports MP3 files and iTunes is all MP4. The Best way to convert them is with "Real Player sp" Which is probably on your computer already or downlaod it for free. Open the music library and right click on the centre. There you will see "Converter" Select convert to MP3. Don't open iTunes. Instead go through; Start, my music, iTunes, library. This way you can drag a whole album into the converter. Plug your Garmin in with the USB cable and go through; Start, my computer, storage device H. At the bottom of the converter you can select where to send the converted files. Select the device H. Now press start and let it do it's thing. When it's finished you can see the old files in MP4 format with the new files in MP3 format listed under. Drag and drop is only a copy. You can delete all these files after to keep it tidy. All the original stuff is still safe and you Garmin should now have music on it. Try it with a small tune first to test. Best of luck. Regards Chris4fingers

Cannot connect to from my FIOS connection

I don't have a solution, it is more of a work around. I took my laptop and went to the local library.

I also called and talked to TOM TOM customer service and they had no idea what I was talking about. They had me call FIOS. FIOS was no help either.
