The best solution is to get your friend to register it for you in your name. Give him a username and password to use, that you'll remember, so you can log in afterwards as you'll need to when you want to update maps etc.

When trying to put in an address the Garmin asks me for a country and then does not accept it after typing in the first letter. The other functions appear to be ok.


Hello

you need to update your map

Purchase your map updates (if necessary). You can purchase map updates for your Garmin Nuvi from the Garmin website. There are two basic options: a lifetime purchase or a one-time upgrade. The lifetime purchase gives you access to any new updates for the life of your device, while the one-time upgrade will provide you with the latest current maps, but you'll need to purchase again if you want to upgrade again later.

Make sure to log in with your myGarmin account before purchasing the map upgrade.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi to your computer via USB cable.

Open the "myGarmin" website and sign in with your Garmin account. Make sure to sign in with the account that you've purchased the map updates on.

Click the "myMaps" tab on the myGamrin dashboard. This will load a list of all of your purchased map upgrades.

Click the drop-down menu in the "Recent Map Purchases" section. Select your Garmin Nuvi from the list of devices.

Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin when prompted. This is required in order for the Garmin website to transfer the map files to your Gamrin software on your computer.

Download and install Garmin Express. This is the program that allows your computer to interact with your Garmin Nuvi.

Register your device in Garmin Express. If you haven't already registered your device, you'll be prompted to when you start Garmin Express. You'll need to register in order to update the maps.

Click the "Updates" tab in Garmin Express. This will show all of the available updates for your Nuvi, including the new map update you just purchased.

Click the "Show Details" option next to your Map Update. Click the "Install" button that appears. You will need to accept the agreement before the update installs.

Wait for the maps to download and install. Once you agree to the terms, the map update will begin downloading to Garmin Express, and will then be transferred to your Nuvi. This will likely take several minutes to complete.

unplug the Nuvi when the update is complete. The Nuvi will reboot and begin installing the updated software on the device. This may take another couple of minutes.

You can download garmin express here

How do i register my garmin


Hello alertcarpet,
go to www.garmin.com and select your country. Create an account and during the setup it will ask for the model number of your garmin. Once you select the one you have, you will be able to register it. Then you can download your maps and so on. Hope this helps, good luck.

Do i get a free map update for the just purchased Garmin nuvi 3790T How about speed camera.


Garmin provides free online map updates (if available) within 90 days after purchase. A purchase is recorded when the Garmin Nuvi detects a certain travel speed or when the Nuvi is registered at MyGarmin.com

To qualify for free Map updates, register the Garmin Nuvi at MyGarmin.com using serial number and owner name.

A map update is a large download - which can take considerable amounts of time. When updating a Garmin map with a PC one needs at least 5Gb of free space at the C drive.

No access to free map or traffic updates. Plugged in traffic accessory that came with the unit, and it tells me that the accessory is not compatible with the unit. The serial number on the bottom of the...


If the Garmin Nuvi is sold with "life-time updates" for maps & traffic - updates are available for download at MyGarmin.com once they are available.

A "life-time update" is coupled to the serial number of the Garmin unit. If the serial number does not match the box with "life-time updates" on it - it could be the Garmin Nuvi came from another box without "life-time updates".

Without "life-time updates" - maps are available for free within 60 days after purchase. A "purchase" is registered by the Garmin device if it detects a certain speed or when it's registered at MyGarmin.com - meaning the 60 day countdown starts. Without a "life-time update" for traffic - a traffic subscription must be bought for a country & timeframe. (ie a year).

Trying to find where to register my nuvi 1390


Go to the following website:

https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/customers/myGarminHome.faces

You can register yourself as well as your Garmin product. If you have the USB cable that should have come with your GPS unit you can plug one end into your GPS, and the other into your computer. After loading a small program the site will automatically register your unit, and then take you to a site that will allow you the choice of downloading maps, extras for the GPS, and other useful items. If you don't have the cable, you can still manually enter the model and serial numbers. Depending on your model number, you are allowed either one free map update if you register within 90 days of your purchase date, or you might have lifetime updates if your model came with that feature.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.
