Hello and sorry you're having problems.

In order to do this, you will need to plug your GPS into your computer using the included USB cable and then click on the link below and follow the instructions as outlined on that page:

If for some reason you do not have the cable to plug the GPS into your PC and would like to purchase one, that cable is available at the link below for purchase:

I logged onto the site but it wont download the plugin.
Expert:  Aric replied 23 days ago.

You have the GPS plugged into your computer?

Expert:  Aric replied 23 days ago.

I posted the link to the USB to PC cable you will need to use to tether the GPS to your PC above (scroll up the page to see all replies). Did you see that link? Or are you saying you already have the GPS plugged into your computer and it still won't update?

Let me know if you need more help. Also, could you please click a POSITIVE RATING (3-5 stars at the top of the page) and click SUBMIT so that I am credited for working with you today?
