You dont say what model you have. If its a Garmin they have updates avaliable but they charge you for them. They will send you a CD that you will pay for. Your unit has to be attached to your computer to accept the updates. Just google Garmin and go to there official website on instructions on how to purchase their update disk.

I hope this helps you out.

How do set up an email account for the first time


The same way an eight year old does ;-).

Seriously... if the person has a mobile phone that receives text messages, they can get an account from any web-mail provider.

If you have a mobile phone (with text messaging):

  • Gmail and Yahoo Mail will work. A text message will be sent to
    the phone for verification.

    If you are a close relative: child, parent, spouse, etc. and are available to help them manage verification when needed, that's OK, but DO NOT use the phone of a friend or person of convenience.
  • Simply go to gmail.com or mail.yahoo.com and click on the link to create an account, then carefully follow the instructions on the form and pay close attention to the username which becomes the first part of the email address: e.g. user.name@gmail.com. If you are John Smith john.smith and johnsmith are already taken so you will need to try something like john.smith1934@gmail.com or johnsmith1934@gmail.com (or some other number that makes sense and is easily remembered).
If you DO NOT have a mobile phone (with text messaging):

  • You will probably need to get an account from outlook.com which does not insist on having a mobile phone for verification.
  • If no phone is entered for an outlook account, an alternative email address is required for verification.

    If you are a close relative: child, parent, spouse, etc. and are available to help them manage verification when needed, that's OK, but DO NOT use the email address of a friend or person of convenience.
  • Simply go to outlook.com and click on the link to create an account, then carefully follow the instructions on the form and pay close attention to the username which becomes the first part of the email address: e.g. user.name@gmail.com. If you are John Smith john.smith and johnsmith are already taken so you will need to try something like john.smith1934@gmail.com or johnsmith1934@gmail.com (or some other number that makes sense and is easily remembered).
  • When you get the the place on the form where it asks for a phone number, leave it blank, but enter an alternate email address instead into the field for the alternate email address.

I was in Tyler Tx. and could not pull up an address. A couple of days earlier I had a message show up that said something about I needed to update. Not sure what that means or how to go about it. ...


How long has it been since you've updated the maps on the unit? You may have gotten a message stating your maps were over a year old, and recommending you update them. The address in Tyler may have been too new for the unit if the maps have not been updated recently also. If this is not the case, you should be aware that some addresses may show as being in a different city due to ZIP code status. For instance, you may know an address to be in a certain town/city, but it may show as being in a neighboring town in the unit as they share a ZIP code. If you cannot find an address in your GPS, go back to the beginning and re-enter the address. When it comes to the city, however, try, "Search All". See if this helps.

Won't accept address information from user


Check in Settings -> Map -> Map Info to see which map(s) currently are installed, perhaps only a small part of the region got installed. When updating map material the unit will erase all old map material from the unit, so if you had a larger area than the one you updated to, then only the newer smaller area would be installed, and thus searchable.
If you have MapSource on your PC and the new map update installed there too, you can try to search for the same address there and see if you're able to find the address then.

Nextar x4-t gps update


Contact Nextar personally and request that free upgrades be made available. This is my review I tried to post on Buy.com.

After working with high end GPS units for six years, using the Nextar X4-T was my first exposure to a consumer grade product. While this unit is very easy to use out of the box, the accuracy of the vector data and the quality of its supporting database leaves much to be desired. Some of the data on this unit, particularly around my home, is at least five years old. You would need a bulldozer to reach my house following its instructions. In addition, the current 911 rural street address for my home does not exist in this unit and I've been at this location for 10 years. If an emergency responder was depending on this data to reach a location to provide life saving assistance, where every minute counts, I afraid it could cost someone their life. I realize that creating this type of data is time consuming and costly, but I also know that better data exists and is available. Unfortunately, after contacting Nextar and requesting updated data, I was informed that it was not available. Nextar purchases their data from Navteq just like Garmin which has 2008 and 2009 data available. I believe Nextar should provide the most current data available to their customers at no charge and that Buy.com should require that they do so or quit marketing their products. gfuse54@sbcglobal.net
