hi, i've got a nuvi 1390. yesterday it gave me this error message: "FM Traffic provider database missing. Go to www.garmin.com/webupdater to download it." today it erased all my maps...
i changed pc since last time i updated it so i initially installed gamin express on my new windows 8 pc, but it did not find any connected devices. gps was connected via usb and turned on.
i then tried webupdater and had the same issue.
tried turning it on and off a few times, different usb cables and even a different pc. all had the same issue.
when i initially connect the gps, windows explorer shows the device as a removable disk with lots of folders with weird names like "α0αÄ^.O"
i really dont want to format it and erase all my favorites... is there any other solution?
