Go to garmins website www.garmin.com at the top of the page you will see MY GARMIN at the very top to the right. Click on that and a drop down will appear or it will take you directly to the sign up page. You will need to set up a new account with a user name and password. After that whatever you need to do you should be able to because you now set up an account with Garmin.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me some feedback.

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).

I am trying to register my new Nuvi Garmin 1490T and get free map update. I have registered etc but am not getting the map updates required for brisbane etc.


The only time Garmin give a free map update is if a new map comes out within 60 days of your satnav first accessing satellites. To see if you are entitled to one at present go to www.garmin.com Click on the myGarmin tab at the top of the screen and log in. Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the page. Your map should be shown on this screen and also if there's a map update available. If there is an update available click on get update and follow the prompts. If it's free you won't be asked to pay. If it's not it will bring you to a screen where you'll be asked to put in your credit card details.

If there's no update available at the moment you may still be entitled to a free update when the next map update becomes available. There's usually an update in February which has not yet been released so keep an eye out for when it does.

You can find information on how to update your map at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

I recently purchased a Garmin nuvi(r) 1310(T) from Halfords in Manchester and was advised to get a "free" update after registering my unit, as it could be 1-2 years old. On checking there were no "free"...


If a new map becomes available within 60 days of the satnav first receiving a satellite signal you get it free. If you only got the satnav there may not be an update at the moment. While the satnav may have been a while in the shop Halfords keep the maps up to date. Even if there was not a free update available myMaps in myGarmin should show if there's an update which could be paid for available. If it says no update available you probably have the latest version. A new map normally comes out in November though the dates vary. Keep a check by logging into myGarmin and checking on myMaps. When the new map becomes available it should show up there. It will let you know if it's free or not.

If you want to check what year the map on your satnav is:
Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol)
Press SETTINGS (or LOCALE if your satnav doesn't have a settings icon)
Press MAPS
Press MAP INFO at the bottom of the map page

This will show what map you have and the year of the map. If your map is the latest version it would explain why there's no updates

If you purchased a unit with 'latest map guarantee'
The upgrades are valid for 30 days after you register and activate your tomtom
