Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any issue with your device.

May I ask:

1) the COMPLETE MODEL number of the device you are working with?

2) The AGE of the device?

3) What maps do you currently have on the device?

4) Have you tried to purchase the Barbados maps already?

5) Approximately WHEN do you plan to travel (for this Barbados trip)?

Thanks

The Garmin is fairly old
At least 10 Years Old
North America & Mexico
Yes tried to purchase it but it wants a Password ***** I never received
Leave on a Flight at 1:00 AM
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 2 years ago

Hi again,

OK - what is the MODEL of the device?

That should be printed on the device somewhere - usually the back or edge of the device.

And WHERE did you try to purchase the maps from?

And is that flight 1AM TOMORROW?

Thanks

Hi again,

I see your call request but don't have a phone line available right now to do a call.

Can you try to respond to my last questions in the mean time?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The Garmin is marked as a nuvi
Yes Tomorrow
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 2 years ago

OK - do you have a NUMBER after the NUVI name?

OR - can you find a Serial Number and send it back to me?

AND - WHERE did you attempt to purchase the maps from?

Thanks

HI I restarted it and the number is *****
I Think it was GPSTravelmaps.comGarmin does not have the Barbados information
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
By the way I do have the Garmin Express installed on the computer
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 2 years ago

Hi again and thanks for that information.

OK - if the maps were purchased from Travelmaps.com, they SHOULD have sent you any password ***** get into the download and how to install the maps.

Did you get ANY emails from Travelmaps.com?

Ask Your Own GPS Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No I did not get any emailsthat is why I am confused but I did download the map
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 2 years ago

Hi again,

OK - perhaps there was a typo in the entering of your email address on the GPSTravelMaps.com site, or something like that.

When you did the download, HOW did the map come to you? That is, was it a ZIP file, .exe file (executable), etc.?

Ask Your Own GPS Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It Was a zip file and I unzipped it and there were 4 files
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 2 years ago

OK - very good.

WHERE are you seeing the "password" request?

Is it anywhere with that set of files, or perhaps with some other program or website?

Ask Your Own GPS Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No - one of the files is Barbados.exe -- which asks for the passwordMaybe you should get logged onto my computer o I can show you this stuff
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 2 years ago

Hi again,

Unfortunately, I'm not set up to do computer "remote support" - to be able to connect to your computer and do this for you.

BUT, I did find the GPSTravelMap "support page" for how to put the maps on your device - using "BaseCamp".

Here is a link to that page --> http://www.gpstravelmaps.com/support/install-map-onto-garmin-gps.php

Also, I would check the OTHER files that were unzipped, and see if they are TEXT files and if they have any more information for you.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
There are text files -- If you like I can start a gotomeeting so that you can log onto my computer.Let me know if you want to
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 2 years ago

I also have a link to the FAQ page of GPSTravelMaps, where they mention the password ***** sent, and where it MAY have ended up.

http://www.gpstravelmaps.com/faq.php

NOTE: I have looked for a phone number for GPSTravelMaps, but have NOT found one yet.

Ask Your Own GPS Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I looked for a phone number as well without any luck.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Do you have a phone that I can dial as I do not get charged for North American calls
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 2 years ago

OK - did you see the FAQ, where they mentioned that the password ***** have been emailed to you - and that it may have ended up in the spam (or junk) folder?

I also saw a note there about sending a note to the support folks - if you did NOT see that email.

And no - I have no phone available at all right now. May be several hours before one is available for me.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Well I guess you can not help me without phone contact and computer link.I am sorry but that is something that you should be able to do if you are an expert?Sorry I guess we will have to just hangup
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 2 years ago

Hi again,

I don't think I could help any this case WITHOUT a phone contact with the GPSTravelMaps company.

And about all I could do with a computer connection is to SEARCH through your email "junk" or "spam" folders - to see if the email is in there.

BUT, let me ask if you have ANY other "confirmation" that the purchased was made, like some kind of printout that shows your order number OR the email you used?

OR - if you have the purchase screen still open, it may be there OR you could (carefully) use the BACK button in the browser - to see if you can find that information.

How about any of those options?

Ask Your Own GPS Question
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 2 years ago

Hi again,

I didn't see a response from my last post, but wanted to mention that YOU could try checking through your spam folders - to see if you could find that missing email.

- OR -

Send a note (email) to the support folks at GPS Travel Maps and tell them about your order (as much as you can), and see if you can get them to send that email again.

- OR -

If absolutely necessary, you could order the maps AGAIN, EXCEPT do it VERY SLOWLY and VERIFY that the email you enter is correct and complete.

I mention this because these maps appear to be relatively inexpensive as maps go, and you would at least have them for the trip (assuming you can get them installed), and can look into a credit or refund after (or during) the trip.

Please let me know what you find or decide.

Thanks, ***** *****

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 suspect you MAY still be on your trip, so please get back to me when you can.

I look forward to any further questions or results that you may have.

Thanks, ***** *****
