How can I transfer a unit to someone else and have
them register it with Garmin?

Want to give my old 60C to someone who can't
afford to by a GPS.

Think about it. Are they going to ring Garmin and say "Please
transferownership of this unit to me. I came by it legitly ! I
promise !".

Contact Garmin yourself.

Boy, I guess I just didn't ask my question
correctly.

Thanks for the enlightenment Simon.

If you go to your... "My Garmin",,,, then you can "de-register" the
unit. Once you have done that,,,, the "receiving" party can register
the unit.

I would just call Garmin and ask them to.I'm sure they will ask you for
your mygarmin ID and your registration #.Once you give them that,they
will know you are the rightful owner and will transfer it for you.

Why bother? The device is out of warranty. You can go to your My
Garmin account and delete the device from your list of registered
devices if you want.

If the new owner goes to Garmin and creates a My Garmin account, adds
the device to it, that is about as close as they can get to having
"registered" device. There is no support, warranty, or anything else
due them. It will bring them access to links to software updates (if
any ever happen, Garmin is not spending much time or money on
discontinued products).

Isn't there a relationship between being the registered owner and installing
maps and updates?

I just did a 'dry run' because I found your info. might be of value down the
road. Anyhow, just to add:

When you get to myGarmin, click on 'myProducts'. From there it isn't too clear,
but if you click on the device in question, it opens yet another page with more
details. It's there that you can "Delete Registration".

I don't think I would have known this without your help either. Thanks for
that.

Things might get a little murky here. I just purchased Garmin's "Lifetime
Update" package for my C330. This gives me up to 4 downloads per year,
effectively for ever, as long as I 'keep' this unit. I was told by Garmin, that
if it craps out and is NOT repairable by THEM, then the "lifetime update" is
transferred to whatever they replace it with. If I was to sell it or give it
away, then the package does NOT go with it. I would assume that once the link
is broken e.g. "unregistered", then you're S.O.L.
