Ijust purchased a garmin nuvi 465lmt it tells me to register the unit with serial # I have tried to do so why. ps does it auto update maps ?

It does not auto update the maps. You can find details of how to update your maps at Even with free lifetime maps you still have to click on GET UPDATE. The only difference between getting the lifetime maps and the maps you have to pay for is that when you click to get the update you're taken to the download page for the free maps and to the payments page if you have to pay. With the lmt version you won't have to pay.

Can I get a European map download.

Yes, you can upgrade to a variety of different maps on Magellan's website here. To use, enter your model number and desired map. Magellan's program will direct you through the rest of the procedure of choosing the right map, paying for it, and downloading it. Best of luck.

I have an account have tried to down load maps many times. i get a message to contact support. i will not pay more to keep current .

If you have paid for map updates on the Garmin website you should be still able to download them without paying any more.
  • Log into your garmin account.
  • Click on myMaps.
  • Under the name of your map you will see the word "details"
  • Click on details and it will take you to a page where you can download the map again.
You don't say what happens when you try to download the map so I will tell you the solutions to the most common problems.

  1. You need a broad band connection to download the maps as they are very large and take several hours. If you don't have broadband you could contact Garmin and get them to send it to you on a DVD.
  2. Sometimes there's a problem of the download stopping and having to begin from the start again. If you have this problem get "Free Download Manager" from This downloads faster than standard downloaders and if the download stops it resumes from where it stopped.
  3. When you try to download a map it selects to download to your satnav by default. When it shows your satnav it's displayed on a drop-down menu. If you click on the menu you get the option to download to your computer. If the download problem is with your satnav try downloading to your computer. When you do this there's a program called MAPINSTALL set up in a Garmin folder on your computer. When the download is finished click on the windows start button. Then click on GARMIN. Then on MAPINSTALL. This will install the map to your satnav.
  4. Which ever way you try to download the map your satnav must be connected to your computer
I hope some of these solve your problem for you.

Well don't get too excited. Free maps are a myth!

Tomtom don't make maps They buy the data at a premium and massage it to suit their hardware. Maps cost anywhere between $90-$170 depending omn model and brands.

Unless you have a written contract that indicates you will get free maps ( which technically you have already paid for in the expanded price, even though it was said it was a special) then pay you will

Good luck TomTom and Garmin are the most expensive maps on the market.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Nuvi 260 question

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
Do that here:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website:
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"
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.
