How to register my 1450lm


Hello,

Create an account on Garmin's website and register the GPS using the serial number or plugging the GPS into the computer after downloading the Garmin communicator plugin.
The Garmin communicator plugin is an application that allows the GPS to communicate with the Garmin website.

https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/login.htm?service=https%3A%2F%2Fmy.garmin.com%2Fmygarmin%2Fcustomers%2FmyGarminHome.faces

After the GPS is registered, there will be a tab for the "Dashboard" and with the GPS connected to the computer, the dashboard will detect the serial number of the GPS and let you know if there are any software or map updates available for it.
The Garmin WebUpdater program can also be used for updating just the software (firmware) of the GPS and is a free download.

My gps is outdated by about 3 years,how do i update it? do i have to buy a disc or do it on my computor?


The best way is to do it on your computer. Make sure the gps is fully charged then go to the Garmin links below. Register your unit and then download Garmin updater then connect your gps via a usb cable. The software will update the gps but any new maps will have to be purchased. The update process can take a few hours even with high speed internet. Follow the instructions to the letter after the updates have been downloaded. Be patient and do not rush it. It will take a few minutes for the gps to reboot after all the updates.
Thanks for using FixYa

Garmin 1450 stopped working. Garmin shows on screen but nothing happens.


I would register you GPS at the Garmin website https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/customers/myGarminHome.faces and see if there is a software update available. If so I would do the update. If there is any damage to the software it should get fixed. To register and update your GPS you will need a USB cable to connect it to your computer. You will also need to create an account through the Garmin website. Once you are finished registering your device(the website well walk you through it) you should be able to find the software update under "MyDashboard" link.
