    We bought a Garmin 255W and have spent 3 days trying to get it reigstered. We onlt get so far into the registration and then the site won't advance any further. We called tech support and waited 35 + min. then after explaining the problem, were told he'd transfer us to someone in software with another 35+ minute wait....we hung up! There HAS to be a better way!

I had the same problem with my NUVI 255. I tried to register it and it would not "find" my device. Without leaving the web p;age (it was still seeking my device) I disconnected it from the USB port, turned the GPS on and went to the instruction page for updates. Then just plugged it back in. My PC found it first and the web page found it next. Everything worked fine after that.

I had a similar problem with my NUVI 200, as far as the registration I put a couple of digits at the end of my user name and it worked. and as far as the software issue I was having with downloading updated maps, I switched my browser from Internet Explorer 7 to Mozilla FireFox. after that it now does what it's supposed to do.

    Well, still the same problem, I cannot registered my product.It says, it need to be "registered within 60 days of acquiring satellites." Is there any way that I can registered it even late. I want to do a lot of things like checking if my phone is compatible but the "register your product" thing is always coming up and the "agreement" part is not working either. How Im going to update my device?

Is it necessary to register this product online in order to use it? I am not finding anything that lets me register.

It's not necessary to register it to use it. However if you want to update the map you will need to register it. To register you connect the satnav to your computer. Go to and select your country. Click on MyGarmin and then click Register Your Garmin Product. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Write them down and keep them safe as you'll need them again if you need to update your maps.
