First things first, plug the Nuvi directly into a computer usb port, ( not a usb hub or splitter )

Then master reset the nuvi

Once complete, next download and install the Garmin express program, https://www.garmin.com/en-US/software/express

Once you h ave installed Garmin express, open it and run it and as long as your nuvi is turned on and plugged into the computer. It shoulld be able to detect and update it. If you get stuck or run into any issues let me know.

I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a 5 star rating clicked and submitted when you are satisfied.. I always answer follow up questions.
