    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.
