Go to the Garmin website. If you have an account, log in. If you do not have an account, then make one. The site will allow you to register your device onto your account. You can then download and install Garmin Express, which will provide you with any software and map updates. To use Garmin Express, just plug your GPS into your PC, open the program, and follow the instructions it provides.

Go to Garmin and download and install Garmin Express, Plug your GPS into your PC. The GPS should power on and Garmin Express should identify it and tell you of any updates. If the GPS does not power on (it should go into usb mode), then contact Garmin for warranty work. You should leave your GPS plugged into the PC overnight to give it a chance to charge if the battery is flat.

On some units, they won't click. You slide the micro SD card into the slot and you will feel a slight resistance. Continue to slide the card in until it stops. It will only slide in one way. This is exactly how the micro SD card slides into a standard SD adapter. There is no click. If you connect the GPS to a PC using the USB data cable, your PC should recognize (2) memory devices; (1) The GPS and (2) the SD card. It may take a few moments. Wait a few minutes until you see both appear in Windows. Always select EJECT or SAFELY REMOVE before you remove the USB data cable.

When encountering errors such as "No Map Data Available" and Garmin Express does not recognize your Garmin nuvi, check to see if your Garmin nuvi is out of storage space from your computer. Solution related to the fact that when brought up as the E: drive in windows there were 0 bytes free space on the Garmin nuvi. To get Garmin Express to recognize a unit which is full, do a search on the Windows Drive (E:) for "gmap" then choose "Open file location" This will get into the hidden ".system" directory. From there, delete the largest file map, such as "gmapprom" (or move this file to your hard drive). Afterward, reboot your computer to have Garmin Express software recognize your Garmin nuvi. On older units, also purchase a microSDHC card to be able to store the newest maps, such as the US & Canada 2.6Gb map file, which will not fit on the internal unit alone or a 2Gb card. The Garmin Express software will recognize 4Gb to 32Gb microSDHC Class 10 or UHS-I cards formatted to FAT32 and install the newest maps automatically to them. Some have reported that 4Gb cards are not large enough. I had used a 16Gb SanDisk Ultra PLUS UHS-I card ($10.88 Walmart) successfully on my Garmin nuvi 1450LMT

If the garmin can reach satellites in North America, it will reach satellites anywhere in the world as long as it has a clear line of site to the satellites. Depending where you are, the satellites can be higher or lower in the sky. This means that the garmin in your vehicle may not be able to see the satellites how you have it positioned in your vehicle. Try finding the satellites outside of your vehicle while in Europe. If you can, then the problem is positioning in your vehicle. The satellites are all the same kind no matter where you are.
