    Newbie here, I want to thank everybody for sharing their time and knowledge.

    I will be receiving a Garmin Nuvi 1350T tomorrow that is a Garmin reconditioned unit which will be identical to buying a new one.
    The first thing I will do is back up all the files on my hard drive, then register the unit with Garmin and download the latest firmware.
    Once firmware downloaded I will make another backup of all the files.
    I then will know what the correct update files and updater.exe I need to download. (either 4.90 or 5.0/ assume it will be 5.0)

    I am confused with step 3 & 4 of how to update the unit.
    “3. enter pre-boot menu. You can do this by connecting your nüvi with computer, immediately as Garmin logo appears, press upper left corner and keep pressing until update is made. Therefore it is a good idea to keep window with update open on your desktop.
    Alternatively, turn nüvi on, enter diagnostic mode by pressing battery icon for 5 seconds and then connect USB cable to computer. Allow windows to recognize "new" hardware.”

    I understand I have to keep the folder open on my desktop with the update files & updater.exe open,
    What I don’t understand is the statement “press upper left corner and keep pressing until update is made.
    How is it updating anything by going into pre-boot mode without first running the updater.exe program?
    Next step is to turn Nuvi on, I have to disconnect from computer for it to go into diagnostics mode but instructions don’t show that.

    “ 4. Start updater.exe, click USB connection, it will recognize your device and start update. Note! The appropriate .rgn file must be in the same directory as the updater.exe. It will ask you whether you really wish to update, as the new version is the same as the old one. Click yes.”

    This is simple enough to understand and will perform the actual update, what I don’t understand is the instructions in the first part of step 3.

    Would I be able to do the update doing the following:1-turn nüvi on, enter diagnostic mode by pressing battery icon for 5 seconds and then connect USB cable to computer. Allow windows to recognize "new" hardware.”

    2-. Start updater.exe, click USB connection, it will recognize your device and start update. Note! The appropriate .rgn file must be in the same directory as the updater.exe. It will ask you whether you really wish to update, as the new version is the same as the old one. Click yes.”

    Please advise if this method will work or give more detail about the pre-boot procedure shown in step 3.

    Any advice is sincerely appreciated and thanks for your patience with a newbie.

    Where did you put the JCV folder and where is the IMG file? Are they compatible, i.e. do they both belong to the same map edition?
    When you performed flashing, did you use the corrent flash file, the one for 4.90 SWV (for 13xx)?

    Sorry, but the process fails in between step 3 and 4.
    I updated to fw 5.00 using the webupdater.
    I downloaded the updater and it found the device using the 5 second trick on the battery icon, although no new hardware is found.

    Any idea?

    I solved. It's just that the updater doesn't accept a directory with a long name or with a space in the directory name.
    Please update the description including this advice.

    I put the JCV files (which came with the corresponding map file) in .system folder. I put the maps in the folder called Map in the root directory (so that I can managed the map names sensibly). I can swear I used the correct flash file 4.90 for my nuvi 1300. Everything will work fine again as long as the JCV folder is removed.

    I have also just tried moving the map file to the .system folder, but this does not solve the same crash problem when the nuvi navigates to a junction needing to call for JCV information. Really headache..
    1xxx with US/EU firmware cannot process Asian JCV files. See P29 here for explanation: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
