Hello, my name is Dan.
My home is close to Lake Ontario in New York State in the Eastern time zone, I am generally online between 10 AM and 11 PM Eastern standard Time.
Please tell me what version of OS X you have. Look in the Apple menu in 'About this Mac'.
Which model Nuvi is it?
My nuvi is a 40LM and my computer is a Mac Pro with System 10.7.5.
The communicator did not work. I still get that it's not connected to my computer.
My computer is hooked up with a regular hookup. I have wireless, but my computer doesn't run on wireless.
I connect the nuvi with the cable provided by Garmin. My menu bar Garmin logo prompts me to install the maps. When I do this, it goes to thee screen that says Ready to update. When I do that, it indicates that I need to connect the nuvi to my computer, which it already is. This happened even after the download of the communicator.
I believe the last software fix worked. The updates were uploaded properly, It looks like I'll get some good extras with this software. I didn't have much luck on the Garmin website, so this really did help. I appreciate your patience. I'm somewhat tech savvy, but this is my first GPS unit, so didn't know what kind of fix to try.
