2009 Map Source

 

I just got the new 2009 update for my nuvi 350 ....I put the disk in my desk top mac and the pop up said that it may take up to 2 hours to up date map source...OK I can deal with that.....It then said select the garmin gps on which to install your new maps, if you dont see your gps listed then click find gps....It has been 20 minutes and it is not doing anything. So I went and got my lap top it is doing the same thing...My nuvi shows me that it is connected to the computer. I don't know if it is doing anything or not...I never got the "continue" highlighted.....

I run ox 10.4 on my computers....any suggestions ????

It should show some signs

It should show some signs that the download is in the works.I know when I installed my 2009 maps it was getting blocked by my security protection.I had to accept the download as safe.Other then that no problems.You will get a message very early in the download that it connects to the Garmin site for a small time frame.

2009 update disk

I took my gps and cable over to my daughters house and had her put the disk into her dell computer with windows xp.....guess what it would not recognize the disk....I think there is something wrong with my disk because it will not find my device.....My computer finds the device so I can load custom poi's with no problem....I think there should be some printed instructions with this disk....

Does your Nuvi appear on the Mac desktop? It should appear as a volume icon, probably titled "Garmin". If it doesn't, you may have a USB cable or connection problem.

Make sure it is in DVD

If you put it in the CD drive it will not do anything it will not be recognized. You have to have a DVD drive.

Garmin disk

Well I got hold of garmin this morning and they used a program to take control of my Mac and started looking around inside my garmin.....the tech said the firm ware said my 350 was a 370 and the version 4.60 software on the garmin had a know glitch and he had a fix that he could download into the garmin. He also stated that the software was corrupted....During the process of trying to fix everything he got a white screen on my garmin. Nothing we did would revive the gps so he said I would have to send it back for replacement.....I wonder if they will reimburse me for shipping it back to them beings it was their fault. Looks like I won't have my gps for vacation next week....
