Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today!
I can walk you through the entire process. But first I need to ask you a few questions.
Do you know the model of Nuvi you have, such as a 55 or 2495 lmt ?
Also, are you using a mac, or a windows pc ?
And when you say update, is it just the software that you want to update, or the maps too?
Thank you in advance for your response,
Dustin S.
