Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,
Sorry to hear of the issue you are having with your GPS.
May I ask:
1) The AGE of your device?
2) Are you trying to update your device using the computer connection?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The device was purchased on Aug 15 2014 It is still in Waranty I am just trying to get it so I can progam it for places I want to go. I have owned five different GPs models over a span of many years. I am very familiar with the process

Hi again and thanks for that information.
OK - does the device still operate properly when NOT connected to the computer - either when connected in the vehicle OR when running on the internal battery alone?
Expert:  Greg A. replied 2 years ago.
Hi again,
I see it has been a few days and I just wanted to follow up to see if you have any more questions concerning this issue or if the issue was resolved.
I look forward to any further questions or results that you may have.
Thanks, ***** *****
