Customer Question

1. The card that came with my Garmin nuvi 2505 series shows a product key for nuMaps Lifetime. How do I use this to update my U.S. maps?
2. Why does my Garmin (and that of local visitors to my home) take people to the unmanned entrance to my community instead of the visitor's gate? We have lived here 14+ years and I was told two weeks ago this is still happening.

As far as updating your garmin, as long as you h ave the keycard I can help you with that. But whether it routes to a manned or unmanned gate is going to depend on which route it believes to be the shortest, and thats not something we can change in system.

To update your maps, you need to download and install garmin express.. You can get the program from here.

Then, once the device has been connected and updated, go to this page and login to your garmin account.. Is your device now showing as one of your registered products?
