I cannot register my garmin nuvi 1450LMT. I have followed the instructions - and get part way, but seems the connection between Garmin and computer will not connect. HELP!


The Garmin Communicator Plugin will need to be installed on the computer.

Also, you may want to check the data cable and that it is the proper one.
It should be Garmin part number 010-10723-01.

I have been trying to register my new nuvi 1410 which i bought on saturday . I get as far as " Please wait while communicator plugin detects your connected device " How long should this take ?

Please make sure that you are connecting the usb cable directly to a usb port on your computer and NOT through a usb hub. Then make sure you are registered with Garmin and have downloaded the latest Garmin updater software. Make sure that the unit is fully charged. Once it is connected and recognized the map update can take hours even with a fast internet connection.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have bought a second hand garmin, and the owner gave me the manual and free US navigation map. Recently he also provided me the 25 digit unlock code, but I cannot register or unlock maps, cos when i try...

The unlock code he gave you must be the map unlock code. IF it is you can unlock the map without registering. Details of how to unlock your map are at
There's more information there than you'll need so skip to the paragraph on unlocking the map.

If the previous owner deletes your satnav from his garmin account you should then be able to register it.

I have recently bought this sat nav and would like to register it as it keeps asking me if i agree when i turnit on

Your Garmin nuvi will continue to show the warning screen after you turn it on even after you register it. It's kind of like the warnings on cigarette packets. You'll get used to it though and it wont bother you after a while.

If you haven't done so yet, go to and register your new gps. You must register it within 60 days of aquiring the first satellite signals in order to be eligible for a free map update. And by the way, you don't have to press 'Agree' each time the warning appears, it will disappear on its own.
