Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

I'm Greg and will do my best to assist you today.

Before we try to register and/or update the device, please may I ask:

1) What is the CURRENT condition of the device (does it work well with current maps, operate for AT LEAST 15 minutes using only the internal battery, etc.)?

2) Do you have a USB cable for connecting the device to a computer (that has HIGH SPEED internet connection)?

3) Has the device EVER been updated in the past?

Please REPLY using the box below and the SEND button.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you see ANY requests for "additional services" - such as a phone call - please understand that these are OPTIONAL and sent BY THE SITE AUTOMATICALLY (and not me), and I am NOT available by phone at the moment. Feel free to DECLINE (close) any such offers, and continue in this text/chat form.

Thanks
