Update Garmin nuvi GPS firmware on a Mac
Authored by: whytoi on Apr 06, '06 05:41:58PM

I think it's not quite fully compatible yet. I mounted my Nuvi (v3.20) on my PB (10.4.6) and I am having trouble unmounting it. I would eject the drive from my desktop but the drive would return in a matter of 5 seconds or so. The only way to truely get rid of it is to reboot my OS X or unplug it during the time the drive disappears from the desktop.

I suspect there's still some bugs in the driver/firmware department. Close, but not perfect.

You can force unmount your nuvi by usiong the command line.
Whatever drive name it shows up as, open the terminal and type umount /Volumes/DriveName

that will unmount.
no reboot, no worry unplugging cables.
