Customer Question
I've moved from Escondido...

I've moved from Escondido, Ca. to Anderson, South Carolina. I have a Garmin nuvi 1450 LM and I'm trying to update maps and location. The Garmin only gives me Anderson, Indiana. Help

Technician's Assistant: How old is your Nuvi?

March 2011.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Garmin?

I've connected to my Dell table top computer and can't see instructions, Too small.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the GPS Expert to know before I connect you?

I'm elderly and not a computer whiz....but I usually get along.
