Nuvi memory full

If you are trying to upgrade a map, you may have to put it on an SD card. You can free up memory by deleting any unused pictures, TTS voices (text to speech) and vehicle icons.

Can I enter GPS coordinates into a gamin zumo 550

Turn on Zumo. Select WHERE TO. Depress ARROW DOWN beneath ROUTES icon. There, revealed, are 5 additional icons, one of which is COORDINATES. There are more different choices of ways to enter coordinates than you're likely to learn what they are in a lifetime.

Happy motorcycling. Keep the shiny side up.

My nuvi 1490t came with a short USB cable. When I plug it into my computer the GPS screen shows the mass storage icon anfd the batterydoes not seem to be charging/

When you plug it into your computer the satnav is meant to go into the mass storage mode. It should charge but it charges at only half the speed it would with a charger (i.e. it takes approx 8 hours to charge.)

How do I get a manual? None was included with my GPS (Nuvi 1490T). I cant get one printed from the Garmin site, I only get a few words on a sheet.

The manual is at in adobe reader format.
If you have a problem printing it you can save it to your computer. The second icon from the left on the Adobe Reader tool bar, just above the manual, is a save option. If you hold your mouse over it it says "Click to save this file to your computer or another location". Click this icon and you can save it to your computer. You can then copy it to a memory stick or burn it to a cd and get it printed off in an internet cafe or off a friend's computer.
