Purchasing a used Garmin

I purchased a used Garmin 60csx on Ebay for my wife to use. I asked the previous owner to de-register it from his Garmin account, he said he would. That was a week ago. I tried to register it this weekend and Garmin.com is still saying it's already been registered and I can't register it. I don't think its stolen or anything, it came very complete (mount, cables, map DVD, etc). I sent the seller another message via Ebay yesterday, no response yet.

Any Advice?
Will calling Garmin help?
Can I install maps if it isn't registered to me?

Thanks for any help

I had the same problem. Definitely call garmin. I did and they told me they would email the last registered owner and if there is no response within one week, they would deregister it and I could call back and have registered as my device. It all worked fine.

Thanks for the advice. Luckily he finally replied to my requests an de-registered it. He said he was on vacation and thought he had done it before he left.

Definitely good to know when I try to buy my next used garmin device.
