430N Serial Number for Garmin?

Anyone know how to find this? I found a 10-digit number under info, but that didn't work as a serial number on the garmin site to check for new maps.

Nevermind... Garmin Maps can't be changed...

Now I'm unhappy. Called Garmin support, and their techies say that the maps in the 430n can't be changed from wherever they were set.

And I wasn't, apparently, the first customer to call about this. Someone had previously called, moving from Australia to the U.S., and now they have useless navigation. I'm over in Europe, with U.S. maps, and useless navigation.

Shoot, the damned base map knows where I am-- the main highways are shown, apparently, the world over. How can it be impossible for them to allow a map change/update? Heck, I know it's all about the $$$, but I'm quite willing to pay the extra bit for European maps.

Re: 430N Serial Number for Garmin?

The rep was friendly-- pointed me to their suggestion page, said that the more people who gave input, the more likely they would adopt. I did that, but I think I want to try to aim higher in Jeep/Chrysler and/or Garmin, just not sure how or who to reach out to.

Re: 430N Serial Number for Garmin?

I also hear there are work-arounds, however, those would most likely invalidate any warranty protection... There should be a fully-legit way to switch the stuff out.
