When the transfer to your device is complete, you will see a window that says, "Your maps are now up-to-date! That should do it..course though, if you need help or have any questions, please let me know and I will do my best to help you.I followed every step to the letter and I still keep getting an error message box just as the download from the Garmin map update site begins installing the maps.The error message box that I'm getting says the following: "An unexpected error has occurred and the program must close.If you continue to experience this, please contact Garmin customer support." So, I'm at a standstill on what to do..I throw the thing away and get me a new one or do I continue beating my head against the wall?Then, you will see a screen where it will detect what version Nuvi you have...Click on "Find Map Updates" (blue button with white text) that is on the LEFT side of the page, just underneath your Nuvi model on this page. On the next screen, choose the update that you would like to install ("Prepaid", click on the "Update Now" button -OR- "Purchasable", click on "Add to Cart")Since you are having trouble with the "lifetime" updater app, I would suggest going with Option 2 (the "one-time" updater).
target=https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/dashboard/dashboard Scan It will then try to detect your Nuvi.
I would strongly recommend trying the "one-time" updater instead, even though you have a lifetime subscription.
This will not affect your lifetime map update subscription at all -- it is just a different type of installer that usually works much better.
When it finally finishes restarting and comes up to your normal, regular navigation screen (After you hit "Agree" on the safety message), that is when you plug it back into the computer.)Then, it will show if there are updates device.
Click on "Continue"Click on "Install Options" on that next screen.
