I have to manually go and select portion of a map to upload to the device.
When attempting to update Garmin Express (Garmin Express, Settings, About, Check For Updates)for the last few months, the update starts to download then I get a red "FAILED" (which disappears in about 10 seconds).
I don't know if anybody else has the same problems, but each time I have to update maps I grind my teeth .
It take me 5 or 6 tries to update maps, the software complains about device not responding, device complains that the server is disconnected etc. I had one before and never got such a hassle with updating it.
If it is easier for you, you can right-click on that blue text link above and then left-click on "open in new tab" or "open in new window"...whichever one will work better for you...After rebooting, I clicked Tools Map Info and saw that the maps were NOT yet updated (still had my same old maps).I plugged the unit back into the computer as instructed, and reconnected it to the Garmin Lifetime Update program.Please try to follow them as best you can and you should be able to update your Nuvi.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.
