Tips for a great answer:
Global Positioning Devices, or GPS, are tracked by satellites to
locate their position on Earth in real time. Because they track their own location,
they can help you drive, boat, fly or even walk to a particular destination,
while giving you information such as your speed, elevation, and arrival time as
well. Smart phones have GPS technology built in that is able to update maps
automatically, but traditional GPS's have maps loaded onto them that you must
manually update occasionally via the internet. Different companies have
different ways to do this, but most include straightforward directions on the
Go to your GPS Company's website, and locate the "Maps" section. It will usually be found under "Support" or "Updates" if there is not an obvious "Maps" tab on the homepage. Plug your GPS into your computer with a compatible USB cord.
Follow the steps to installing the USB driver or plug-in from the
website. Click the "Download" link, and read and agree to their terms
if asked. Then press "Save file" if asked.
Go into the "Maps" section of the company's website
again, and go to the "Update maps" section. Your GPS should be
detected by the driver or plug-in, and this will let you know if there are
available updates to install. There may be updated maps available for free, but
you may have to purchase them. Purchase and then press "Download."
Follow the prompts for accepting the terms of agreement, saving the file, and
updating your GPS device.
Restart your GPS by unplugging it from the computer and waiting
for it to update the new maps. Use as normal.
