  • regarding my problem, difficult to get into my account, my gps would let me select a language, but not a country. there was no button to select. When I was in my account the software always said that my gps was up to date. But if you looked at map c…
  • Actually after two frustrating weeks of back and forth with TomTom support, they finally came thru with a fix. I was able to download a map. The download was very slow but steady. I thank dhn for his timely response. I do appreciate this forum, you …
  • thanks for your response....., working with tomtom support, but my tomtom go 60 remains a brick.
  • Talking about prices. I am a bottom feeder. I use ebay for my purchases. A tomtom go 60 for a total of $ 10.79 delivered. Another coming for $ 16.00 delivered today. Usually from sellers who know nothing about gps and their peculiarities . They do…
  • Older gift cards and older gps are always available on Amazon and Ebay. That is where I shop. I believe my Garmin nuvi 5000 is from 2008. I stay in the $20-$25 range. Some are new old stock. Many sellers don't even know what they are selling. Of …
  • Actually " internet explorer has stopped working " is what I had to deal with. My son was unable to fix the problem using Microsoft supports suggestions. And it appears to me that there are many problems with internet explorer in windows 10. Garmin…
  • Sorry but I have windows 10, and I use Chrome. Internet explorer refused to load on my computer. I spent hours with internet explorer, and it kept shutting down on me. Your experience is apparently very different then mine.

  • Op or some other person had to be quite aware of the nuvi security screen, and how to put in a pin number and lock the nuvi . Concerning an unknown 4 digit number, there are maximum 10,000 numbers you must try to get the correct 4 digit number. It…
  • Funny thing, check Garmin Outlet. They sell the nuvi 855 for $169.00. But look at the accessories that come with the purchase, not like original. And it comes with a battery that is not manufactured anymore. So how old is to old to purchase or updat…
  • thanks for all the help and suggestions. The mistake that I made was is saying my purchase was in my cart at mygarmin account. The lifetime maps are under orders, with a purchase order number. My garmin nuvi 880 is very old,a recent purchase as nos …
  • please flag this thread
  • this was the best advice I got from Garmin support.....Your account shows a map update was done on the nuvi 880 on October 16 and a lifetime update was purchased and activated to it on November 28. The lifetime update can only be used when there i…
  • To be clear, I purchased the lifetime map download for $39.95. My puchased is in mygarmin.com account. I have tried to apply my purchase to my fully updated nuvi 880 which I own and is registered with garmin.com. I have emailed garmin support many t…
  • I have had many emails to garmin support, each person gave me info. or asked me many questions. In here I will try again. I purchased lifetime maps to be applied to a nuvi 880, which is already up to date. the purchased download is in my cart at my…
