Updating nuvi 260 invalidating space timestamp
When it finally finishes restarting and comes up to your normal, regular navigation screen (After you hit "Agree" on the safety message), that is when you plug it back into the computer.)Then, it will show if there are updates device.
Click on "Continue"Click on "Install Options" on that next screen.
I know these instructions are long, but please don't worry..are just very detailed to help folks follow them easily. Downloading the actual updates may though, depending on your Internet connection speed.
Make sure to disable all firewall *and* anti-virus software before starting..please use Internet Explorer during the process as Chrome will absolutely not work and Firefox may or may not work, depending on how you have it configured.
When the transfer to your device is complete, you will see a window that says, "Your maps are now up-to-date! That should do it..course though, if you need help or have any questions, please let me know and I will do my best to help you.
I followed every step to the letter and I still keep getting an error message box just as the download from the Garmin map update site begins installing the maps.
I disconnected my 260 from the computer, the 260 stayed on and then gave me this screen which said, "No detailed maps found that support routing.
At this time, follow the directions on the window..sure to do every step.
Once it does, click on the blue button with white text that says "Continue"...
Then, click on "Agree" (blue button with white text) on the page that will come up right after you clicked on "Continue" just now...
First, plug in your Nuvi and go to this link...https://my.garmin.com/gcp Install/check Plugin.htm?
target=https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/dashboard/dashboard Scan It will then try to detect your Nuvi.
At this point I might add that this is the third time I have updated my 260 and did not have a problem with the update. It downloaded fine until about the last 20 minutes of download time and then I got a error and the download stopped.
