Dampness on my gps
The Gamins are not sealed. You might try putting in a zip lock bag full of uncooked rice and leaving it for a few days. The rice will absorb the moisture that is in your GPS.
Gps need to be updated but don't know how to update it
Depending on the model, you may or may not have free map updates. You will need to connect your GPS to your computer and log into Garmin. You will need to down load Garmin Express from the Garmin web site. Once the software is installed, it will either find your gps, or tell you connect your gps to your computer. After that, just follow the screen prompts.
Why wont my computer recognise the charging lead that was provided with my device
Is it charging/turning on with the car charger that came in the box? If it is, then it is possible your cable is not inserted properly or it is defective. You can try another USB to Mini USB cable (should not be too costly) and see if it works.
To download the maps, first go the the Garmin website:
and download the Garmin Express program, install it, plug in your device. It will be found by the program and the updates should be begin.

My gps won't turn on. Tried charging but didn't help
Hold in the power button for at least 30 seconds. Some units have a software bug that when you turn them off with the power button this happens. If you let the unit power off by removing the DC and it counts down to off it usually doesn't happen.
How do I disassemble?
The cases snap together and you must know the pressure points for your particular model and press then all in at the same time. Usually with a special tool.
Power will not come on
Hold the power button in for at least 30 seconds while externally powered. Some of the units have software problems if they are shutdown using the power button instead of letting them auto-shutoff when you remove DC (shut off your car).
