IN-nteresting......your manual say "To receive

Go to garmins website 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.
