Copy your favourites folder from the old satnav to your computer and then restore it from the computer to your new satnav. You can find details of how to do this at http://www.fixya.com/support/r8422587-backup_restore_favourites_garmin_nuvi

I have Janine 10000. And am buying a new computer. How do I transfer to new compy


Install the program on the new computer. Save the data, patterns and stuff you have saved onto a USB memory stick and not where the program saved it on the old computer. Drop the files into the same location on the new computer.

How to Upgrade and Fix your Garmin GPSMAP 545s System Software

Does your Garmin GPSMAP 545s freeze up?
Is the screen stuck, or do you loose satellite coverage?

I recommend upgrading the system software of your Garmin 545s. There may not be physical damage to your unit, and it may be completely revitalized by replacing the GPSMAP software with the latest version 5.30 (as of January 7, 2010).

  1. Click on "Download" and choose to save the file to your computer.
  2. Choose a location where you can easily find the file, such as the 'My Documents' folder or 'C:\'.
  3. Once the download is complete, go to the location where you saved the file.
  4. Double-click on the downloaded file. This will automatically extract the files to C:\Garmin and run a program to transfer the software update to an SD card.
  5. Load the SD card into your GPSMAP 545s and turn it on to replace the system software of your unit.
I hope that helps.

How can one transfer a location from Bing's Multimap to a Garmin GPS as a favourite? It's easy from Google but I can't see how to do this in Mulimap.


Currently, sending locations using USB is supported only on Garmin GPS devices. You will need to close all browsers to install the Garmin Communicator Plugin and save your location information before proceeding with installation.

Plug in your GPS in your computer using the USB plug, it wil then detect the unit and let you download the plug in

My garmin 545 wont turn on. it was working fine and I switched batteries. now it wont turn on


Follow these directions to replace the system software of your Garmin GPSMAP 545s. This should fix it up. It is not uncommon for firmware to become corrupt when switching batteries on some devices.

  1. Click on "Download" and choose to save the file to your computer.
  2. Choose a location where you can easily find the file, such as the 'My Documents' folder or 'C:\'.
  3. Once the download is complete, go to the location where you saved the file.
  4. Double-click on the downloaded file. This will automatically extract the files to C:\Garmin and run a program to transfer the software update to an SD card.
  5. Load the SD card into your GPSMAP 545s and turn it on to replace the system software of your unit.
I hope that helps.

Saving Favorites before updating Garmin c340


Use MapSource to transfer the Waypoints from the unit to your PC. If you lose them, you can then transfer them back. (I updated a C330 from 4.40 to 6.10 and did NOT lose them, however.)

Change Home Location on Nuvi 660


 

Go into 'Where To', 'Favorites', 'HOME', 'Edit...', 'Delete'. Then from the main map screen you can tap the screen and 'Save' the location as your new home. You can't save a 'Home' location if there's already one called that in memory, so you have to delete the old one first.

 

(I have a 680, but I assume it's the same)
