you will need to contact where you bought it from and inform them that it says it was already registered. If you contact garmin they will just refer you back to the shop you bought it from
This is the only way you will be able to receive the map updates

I have bought a second hand garmin, and the owner gave me the manual and free US navigation map. Recently he also provided me the 25 digit unlock code, but I cannot register or unlock maps, cos when i try...


The unlock code he gave you must be the map unlock code. IF it is you can unlock the map without registering. Details of how to unlock your map are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing
There's more information there than you'll need so skip to the paragraph on unlocking the map.

If the previous owner deletes your satnav from his garmin account you should then be able to register it.

I deleted the US map and I need to recover it free fo charge. What can I do ....


Try connecting it to your PC via the USB cable; then go to the Garmin.com site and either try registering, or try downloading your free Update (60days from 1st use).
It may check your unit as you register, and if it finds no map, it may restore it.
Secondly, try Resetting your unit (either a Reset button on botton of unit, OR Slide the On switch to ON FOR 8-10 seconds). Then try to turn it on and see if it will load your map with its software.
Lastly, go to Tool, Setting, Restore. (per Manual)
Reboot, and good luck.
Garmin.com is your last resort, see if they can respond to your mistakenly deleting the default map.

I recently purchased a Garmin nuvi(r) 1310(T) from Halfords in Manchester and was advised to get a "free" update after registering my unit, as it could be 1-2 years old. On checking there were no "free"...


If a new map becomes available within 60 days of the satnav first receiving a satellite signal you get it free. If you only got the satnav there may not be an update at the moment. While the satnav may have been a while in the shop Halfords keep the maps up to date. Even if there was not a free update available myMaps in myGarmin should show if there's an update which could be paid for available. If it says no update available you probably have the latest version. A new map normally comes out in November though the dates vary. Keep a check by logging into myGarmin and checking on myMaps. When the new map becomes available it should show up there. It will let you know if it's free or not.

If you want to check what year the map on your satnav is:
Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol)
Press SETTINGS (or LOCALE if your satnav doesn't have a settings icon)
Press MAPS
Press MAP INFO at the bottom of the map page

This will show what map you have and the year of the map. If your map is the latest version it would explain why there's no updates
