Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Computer can't locate connected nuvi 270

Using a Garmin USB cable to connect nuvi 270, Garmin's website and download center doesn't recognize/can't find (pretty ironic when you think about it) the device that is connected already. the device shows a symbol indicating that it is connected to the computer. also received confirmation that Garmin driver was successfully installed. have rebooted, signed in and out of MyGarmin, used different USB ports, connected and re-connected USB multiple times with no luck.

After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

Garmin 265 wt is charging via USB cable.It will not connect to the garmin website.


Hello,

The Garmin Communicator Plugin needs to be installed on your computer.
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator

Also check to be sure that the data cable is the correct one.
When connect between the nuvi and the computer, the nuvi should show that it is in mass storage mode by displaying a computer on the screen.

The correct cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-01.

Yesterday, I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 2360LMT for my grandfather. I have read the instructions on how to register it but now, I have the usb connected to the computer and the Garmin, my computer will not...



Here is what you need to do to update the map your Garmi nuvi 2360lmt; first make sure the unit is fully charged, then go to the Garmin web site and register your product. Next download Garmin Updater and connect your nuvi with a USB cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. I would also try a different usb port. See if it show up in Computer or My computer in Windows 7/Vista or XP.
Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. When done follow the instructions on your screen. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

Garmin Nuvi 1450 is not found by mygarmin.com dashboard or by the Garmin Map Update when connected to the computer, although the computer, itself, recognizes it correctly.


Have you registered your device at Garmin and downloaded the latest version of Garmin Updater? Also connect the usb cable directly to a port on your computer and not thru a usb hub.

Garmin navi will not connect to computor so i can register


You may need to replace the usb cable that you are using to connect this device to your computer.

There's just 4 steps on how to connect garmin navi to computer.
1. Connect the mini-USB end of your USB cable to the back of the Navi.
2.
Turn on your PC and connect the standard USB end of your USB cable to the USB port on your personal computer
3.Power on the Navi and give the computer time to recognize the device.
4.Click "Start," then "Computer." The Navi hard drive should be among those listed under "Devices with removable storage." You can click on the Navi's drive icon to access your Garmin device

While using my Garmin Nuvi 205W for navigation I plugged it into my car charger and the screen changed to GARMIN with a computer on the bottom, like it was plugged into a USB port. Can I charge my Nuvi...

If the device does not power on it could be a result of a extremely low battery. Please ensure that the device is receiving a charge while it is connected to the vehicle power cable. If the battery is receiving power from the vehicle power cable then the battery icon (located next to the time) would disappear from the Main Menu.
If the unit does not power on while attached to the vehicle power cable please follow steps from below to perform a soft reset:
  1. Connect the device to an external power source1
  2. Slide and hold the power key to the on position for 15 seconds
The device should power on.

Notes:
  1. Preferably the vehicle power cable or a USB cable from a computer
  2. Some of the older Nuvi 200 series will have a reset button on the bottom of the device. It can be found on the bottom of the device on the same sticker that the serial number is printed on.
  3. Then Make

Garmin Nuvi 260w not recognized by computer


Hi,
Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550
Goodluck

I deleted files in garmin 205W now I lost voice and languages


I also had this problem while trying to register a Nuvi 205W. I talked to someone at Garmin tech support and found that I was using USB cable that was only meant to plug in to my computer to recharge the unit. I have now sent for a data transmission USB cable, will see if that solves the problem when it arrives. Hope this helps.
