Hello,

Create an account on Garmin's website and register the GPS using the serial number or plugging the GPS into the computer after downloading the Garmin communicator plugin.
The Garmin communicator plugin is an application that allows the GPS to communicate with the Garmin website.

https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/login.htm?service=https%3A%2F%2Fmy.garmin.com%2Fmygarmin%2Fcustomers%2FmyGarminHome.faces

After the GPS is registered, there will be a tab for the "Dashboard" and with the GPS connected to the computer, the dashboard will detect the serial number of the GPS and let you know if there are any software or map updates available for it.
The Garmin WebUpdater program can also be used for updating just the software (firmware) of the GPS and is a free download.

Will not register on garmin site


If your unit is not registering on the Garmin website, then the unit is probably already registered. If its already registered, the Garmin website won't recognize it. If you bought it used, you need to call the person who you bought the unit from and tell them to delete their registration so that you can re-register under your name. If you bought it new, call Garmin customer service at 1-800-800-1012 and have them clear the registration. They will require proof of purchase. New Units sometimes get purchased registered and then returned. Some places will place the merchandise back on the shelf after verifying everything is still there.

We replaced the base unit and can not register our existing handsets because they were registered to the previous base unit. Once registered the handset's menu doesn't offer a register or...


To un-register the SB67108 handset from a base unit, SB67118 or SB67138, you will need to do these steps in order:
1. Press menu
2. Key in this sequence *883247#
3. Select deregister
4. Unplug the battery for minimum 10 seconds
5. Plug battery back in and it will want to be registered.
6. Follow the directions in your base unit manual to reregister it.
That's it in a nut shell.

I just received my neww 1450LM Garmin Nuvi GPS today and it push the on/off power switch and it does not come on. so, I started my car and plugged it in and it still does not come on. Please tell me why it...


Garmin is voluntarily recalling certain nuvi devices that contain a specific battery that was manufactured by a third-party supplier within a limited date code range.
Garmin has identified potential overheating issues with the use of these batteries in certain nuvi devices with a specific printed circuit board (PCB) design. Additional information about the nuvi battery PCB recall can be found in Service Alert Number: 1035.

The models that may be impacted by the nuvi battery PCB recall are the 200W, 250W, 260W, 7xx and 7xxT (where xx is a two-digit number). To determine if your unit is affected, please visit www.garmin.com/nuvibatterypcbrecall and enter your nuvi's serial number. If your unit has the specific PCB design and contains a battery from the specific date range, you will be given instructions on how to return your nuvi for a battery replacement at no charge.
You should not attempt to remove or service the battery on your own; all battery replacements must be serviced through Garmin's authorized service provider.
If you do not have web access, you may contact Garmin through one of the phone numbers below:
  • In the United States and Canada, call (866) 957-1981
  • In North America and South America outside the U.S. or Canada call (913) 397-8200
  • In Europe, Middle East, and Africa, call +44 870 850 1242 or 0808 238 0000
  • In Asia, call 886/2.2642.9199
  • In Australia, call 1800 113 738; and in New Zealand call 0800 427 652
Repair time will vary based upon location. U.S. customers, please allow 10-16 business days to receive your repaired or replacement device. Canadian customers, due to increased shipping and customs clearance times, please allow 20-30 business days to receive your repaired or replacement device.

Garmin sincerely regrets the inconvenience that this recall has caused and is making every effort to cooperate with customers, dealers, and regulatory agencies worldwide to ensure all parties are assisted according to national regulatory standards

I put my user name & password it then locates my Garmin device but then says this device is not registered to this account but i bought this as new 3years plus ago


I'm only guessing, but this may be worth a try.
Go to the Garmin website, www.garmin.com, click on the tab "myGarmin".
Log in (which you would have done when you registered your new GPS when you bought it).
Then click on "View your registered products".

If your 660 is listed there, (its model number would appear in blue type, under the heading Product Name.....and the serial number would be listed to the right) the unit MUST be registered to you or you probably wouldn't even get this far on the website.

If your unit ISN'T listed there, you may see a drop-down window where you can select "Register Now".
(I say all this somewhat tentatively, because MY unit IS registered: it was initially registered by its previous owner who had to UNregister before I could go in an register it in MY name.)

Perhaps the store where you bought the unit registered it in YOUR name, but maybe they spelled it differently (like, Mike, instead of Michael). OR, maybe you never registered it when you made your purchase. If not, go ahead and do it now; it's easy!

Good luck.
Michael

I have a Pansonic kx-tga270s that is registered to a base I do not have. Is there a way to deregister it.


you dont need to deregister it if you have not registered all 8 hand sets with your base unit. Just register the new one and the base will assign a new # for this new. I you had registered 8 hand sets with your base already, you need to remove(deregister0 one handset from your base(it can take only upt 8).
If it still not registering please deregister as follows:
on the base unit, press program, them mute, then enter 335#, then enter the handset number you wish to deregister.
after deregistering try to register your new hand set.

Can I use handsets from another DCT 748 unit to expand my DCT 748


Short answer:
No. This model of phone can only support 4 handsets. If you need more than that, you will need to have a second base unit.

Detailed answer:
One of my handsets went bad, and I just bought complete DCT748-4 package from a seller on eBay for a very good price. This set was used, but in very good condition. I didn't need the whole set - just one handset - but like I said, it was a good price. Anyway, I began by telling my old base unit to de-register handset #2 (the failed unit). However, I then found that I could not register the "new" handset with my old base unit because it was already registered to the "new" base unit. So, I first had to apply power to the "new" base unit and de-register the handsets. Then, I placed one of the "new" handsets onto my old base unit, and it said "Handset Registering ..." and registered just fine. Just for the fun of it, I placed one of the other spare handsets into my old base unit. It said "Hanset Registering ..." but then it beeped and said "Registration Failed." This is because I already had 4 handsets registered to my base, and the base can not handle a fifth handset.
