Question about Garmin nuvi 885T GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My new garmin nuvi 265W constatntly reboots itself for no reason. I am unable to connect it to the PC to run webupdater on it because when I attach it to the USB, the unit just sits and reboots itself, so the PC never recognizes it. I have done the hard reboot....no luck. Any suggestions?

Have your Nuvi fully charged before you do anything with it

With the unit Off

connect the gps to your computer using the USB cord, your computer will detect new hardware USB port

go to www.MyGarmin.com once there it too will detect your model and give you the correct updates and unlock maps

you must register your unit with garmin
