I recently bought a new laptop with Vista and I could not get the communicator plugin to talk to my unit. I tested the plugin from the Garmin website just fine but everytime I tried to download the location from google map to my Garmin in either IE7 or FF3.0 I got the error that asked me to check the plugin. Did anyone have success with communicator plugin in Vista? I had no issue with either XP or 2000.
I download to my 760 from Google Maps through the Garmin site on my desktop running Vista Ultimate and my laptop running Vista premium without any problems
In what step does it fail?
I have no issues with Vista Business on my Sony LT, or with Vista Business on my MacBook.
My computer at home has Vista on it and I am able to send favorites from Google maps to my Nuvi 360 with no problem.
Works on mine with Vista in Firefox.
Be sure that you are allowing Active X.
Wonder if it has anything to do with IE7 or FF 3.0?
I ask, because the Garmin site says -- "IBM-compatible PCs running Windows® 2000, XP or Vista operating systems with Internet Explorer 6+ or Firefox 1.5+"
The communicator plug-in Version 220.127.116.11 works great on my HP with Vista Home Premium and FF 18.104.22.168. Maybe someone else can answer questions about their success running the communicator plug-in under IE 7 or FF 3.0.
Works in Vista Home Premium in Firefox 3.0.1 and in IE 7. Flawlessly.
Like others, it works OK on my Vista Home Premium with both IE and Firefox (and XP too).
Do you have 32-bit or 64-bit Vista?
Which nuvi model do you have? (Your profile shows a non-Garmin i-Blue 73)
MM - thanks for confirming. I simply have not taken the time to upgrade to FF 3.0.1 yet. Good to know that I should not face any problems
I had Nuvi 200. I used the exact setting with my XP and even the same on Norton 360II firewall setting. That was really weird. The error message is "Sorry, we were unable to send this message at this time. Please visit the help page." Does anyone enable UAC control, ie that annoyed prompt? The suck part is that any other operation on Vista is fine except the plugin and the plugin test passed without any issue.
I have the Nuvi 260 and it work fine with the comps I have. I'm running xp on one and Vista on the rest. I also have exploer 8 and google chrome.
I wonder if this has anything to do with Norton 360? I had Norton 360 II and it seems this might be the problem. Anyone uses Norton 360 here?
am using Norton 360 ver-2.0 it palys best with Vista, ultimate, i have no issues with the plugin works great for me!
works for me
