Garmin Setup Instructions


Garmin primarily sells GPS devices to consumers. The devices are portable and can be mounted inside a vehicle and used to help a driver navigate to a destination nearby or across the country. If you have purchased a Garmin GPS, you will need to know how to install and set up the device. You can then use the Garmin GPS for road trips or to locate a new store or restaurant in your town.

  • Wipe off the inside of your windshield with a lint-free cloth and rubbing alcohol. Buff it dry.

  • Place the suction cup of the mount that came with your Garmin GPS on the windshield. Flip the bottom lever toward the windshield to secure it.

  • Connect the included cable to the back of the screen portion of your Garmin device. Plug the other end of the cable into a power supply in your vehicle.

  • Affix the GPS unit to the mount that you just attached to the windshield.

  • Push the power button on the top of the Garmin GPS. Press the "Map" option on the screen.

  • Wait for the GPS device to acquire a satellite signal. Once the signal is acquired, your device is set up and ready to help you navigate.
