Hi, go to and with your Nuvi plugged into your computer follow the instructions to set up an account, register and then download the latest upgrade. The first one is free, then you have to pay after that. If they say that your product is already registered (which is what happened to me!) then you have to go back to the supplier and tell them to notify Garmin to let you register it again. The supplier may have previously registered it and used up the one free upgrade. If they are authorised Garmin distributor they will be able to do this. If they are not, then you have effectively got a used unit, and you will have to pay for upgrade/updated maps. Have fun! David

My garmin is nuvi 3790 where can I find serial no and how can I regester my garmin

You'll find the serial number on the bottom of the unit, inside an outlined box (remove mounting bracket to view). Register your nuvi 3790 by going to Garmin's Registration page, here. Follow the prompts on the screen.

I hope this helps - good luck!

No serial number on my Garmin 255 Nuvi, can't regester

The serial number should be on the bottom of the unit on the decal. If your decal is missing, the unit is not new and has been tampered with.
