This is not promising, I'am not aware of an un-install feature on the GPS system for this type of situation, but I would check your manual to see if an option is available. The only other thing I can suggest is hook the GPS system back on the computer and try to download the correct software, if it detects the other software it might offer the option to un-install it first, "which is what we want" then you can install the correct software, "a long shot" keep in mind this may make things worse! the final thing you can do is contact the company and ask for customer support, and the technical department.

    If all this fails you may have to consider a replacement, "good luck"

    Check to see if the unit can be reset to factory defaults eliminating the update.

How to installation windows xp in hindi lenguage with picture


  1. Step 1 Open Windows Update (located in the Windows XP Control Panel), and see if SP2 is on the list of available updates. If you don't have Windows Update installed or turned on, visit the Windows Update website in order to get the latest Windows Update software.
  2. Step 2 Select the Windows XP SP2 item from the list of available updates, and click the "Install" button. Windows Update will begin downloading Service Pack 2 (a process that may take up to 20 minutes or longer, depending on how fast your Internet connectionmag-glass_10x10.gif is), and will then launch the installation program once downloading is complete.
  3. Step 3 Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the Windows XP Service Pack 2 installation. You will be asked to accept the terms of the licensing agreement before the actual installation takes place. Installation may take up to 20 or 30 minutes, after which you will be required to reboot your computer in order for the changes to the operating system to take effect.
  4. Step 4 Should you have problems installing XP Service Pack 2 through Windows Update, download the stand-alone executable from Microsoft in order to install the software update manually. The Service Pack executable is designed to make it easier for IT professionals to update multiple computers without having to download the Service Pack onto each one. Run the installer program once you've finished downloading it, and follow the on-screen instructions as mentioned above.

More than most do.
Make sure you have the latest nuvi "Firmware"
then update the maps. I would start with making sure you have the latest WebUpdater on your computer before you proceed with any updates.

If a nuvi 200 is has an older version of system software glitches may occur. The device may be missing letters or have jumbled letters or displaying duplicate letters or strange symbols on the address screen. To correct this you will need to update the system software of your nuvi. You can easily do this by using Garmin’s WebUpdater program:
  1. Click the following link to download the WebUpdater program: http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
  2. Follow the on screen prompts from the website
  3. Choose RUN/OPEN
  4. Follow the on screen prompts
After the program has been installed it should run automatically. If it does not please use the steps below.
To run WebUpdater:
  1. From the Start menu, click All Programs and find the Garmin folder
  2. Click WebUpdater
  3. Connect your nuvi to an available USB port on your computer
  4. To search for an available update, choose NEXT
  5. As the program automatically finds updates, choose NEXT to load the update. Once the update is complete, you can search for other updates such as voice languages, Bluetooth, and Traffic Receiver.
  6. Disconnect the unit to ensure it powers on.
Take your unit outdoors and keep it in a stationary position with an open sky view until it reacquires satellites.

Nuvi 885 touch screen won't work


I had the same problem and Garmin's answer when I emailed them was...

"There are a few things I would suggest, first we need to updated your
system software (firmware) on the unit. To update your system software
(firmware), download the WebUpdater at www.garmin.com/webupdater.

After this program installs, your unit will need to be attached to the
computer via the USB cable. The WebUpdater will attempt to update itself
and then search for your GPS unit. The program should then recognize the
unit and you will just need to click next and follow the instructions to
update your unit. When the system?s firmware is updated, you will have
the option to update additional software that is present on your unit.
It is best to look at this list as well and check any firmware or GPS
update that are available on this page.

Once the selected updates have download to your device, please
disconnect it from the computer and allow the unit to complete start-up,
during which it will ?unpack? and install all the software updates
downloaded to it.

Secondly, you may want to try a master reset, but be advised that this
may delete your favorites. To back up your Favorites folder, you will
need to connect the nüvi to your computer with the USB cable. Open the
nüvi drive in MyComputer and then open the Garmin folder. Then open the
GPX folder and copy the CURRENT.GPX file to your desktop. If the
Favorites are deleted in the master reset, you can just go back in and
copy the CURRENT.GPX file back into the GPX folder in the nüvi drive.

To perform a master reset, with your nüvi powered off, press and hold
the lower right corner of the screen. Next, turn the power on. Continue
to hold the screen until it asks if you really want to erase all user
data. Select yes. The screen will flicker a bit and then start up like
it did when it was first turned on. Follow the directions to set time
and location. You will have to reacquire satellites by turning on your
nüvi and letting it sit somewhere in full view of the sky. This one time
acquisition may take up to 20-30 minutes. The unit may still ask if you
are indoors or if you are in Kansas. This is normal. Just answer No to
both questions. If you are on the map or satellite data screen, the
green bar at the top will now read "Locating Satellites." Make sure you
leave the nüvi out for the full 20-30 minutes. If you move it or turn it
off early the initialization process may not complete.

After completing the system software (firmware) and master reset, go out
and test the unit, if still having problems, let me know. If you have
any other questions, please email or call us at 1-800-800-1020 from
8am-6pm Central time, Monday through Friday (excluding Holidays)."

Traffic reciever not working with Nuvi 650


I have the Nuvi 650 (for about a year now) and just bought the GTM-20 traffic receiver. This receiver came with the "free lifetime" traffic service. (Keep in mind that at first use, the receiver is "mated" to the Nuvi for "life". You can't move it to another GPS).

In any case, the GTM-20 manual says you only need to plug the two together and the two units will establish their connection automatically.

Mine didn't work.

I called Garmin and after a LOOONG hold time, finally got through to a tech rep. She advised that I connect my 650 to my PC and login to Garmin to check for upgrades. She was right. When Garmin offered this "free service for life", they had to issue a new software update so the Nuvi would accept it. She also advised I check the offered "optional" upgrades as well, and look for any that offered "traffic" in the title. There was one of those upgrades, also. (almost everything else was optional "voices" downloads).

I downloaded both the primary software update and the optional traffic update to the 650. It installed them automatically. She also advised "just to be sure" to do a hard reset on the 650. That involves turning the unit off. Then, while pressing a finger in the lower right corner of the screen, turn the unit back on. The unit will ask if you really want to risk losing personal data.. Say "yes", and the unit will do a clean reboot with the upgrades.

Reconnect the receiver and the 650. It may take awhile for the units to acquire the satellites, traffic signals, and set the internal key, but it did work. You may not see the "traffic icon" at the first map screen. If you go to the tools or setup screen, you should see the traffic icon at the lower right of the screen. Press that, and if you are in a coverage area, it will show traffic in the area.

If you have the first version of the GTM-20, you will have a set of LEDs on the power plug that show power and traffic signal info. If you have the new version of the GTM-20, there are no lights on the plug.

A couple of side notes. If you have a lot of "favorites" saved in your 650, you may lose those on the hard reset. To avoid that, put your 650 on the PC, go to your file explorer, and go to the "Nuvi" drive. Click on that, and find the the folder and file called "gpx". Copy that to a folder or desktop on your PC. After you do the nuvi reboot, reconnect the PC and copy the file back into the folder on the 650. That will restore your favorites.

Also, make sure you are in a covered area. If you are not, it won't find the signal and will not show you any traffic icon.

The first time after the upgrade and reboot, the Garmin rep said it could take anything from several minutes up to nearly an hour for it to establish the link (mine was about 10 minutes). After that, it will come right on.

A lot of information here, but the first thing is to get the latest software upgrade for the 650. I had upgraded mine about 4 months ago, and it was already two versions out of date. The newer version had the fix for traffic. I would start there.
