TomTom has probably the easiest solution -- you can update and download maps via their TomTom Home software, which works on both PC and Mac. http://www.tomtom.com/products/maps/ or you can check this link ... http://www.gps-software-hub.com/2007/11/world-gps-map-database-download-over.html hope this helps appreciate by rating it

Hi


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 company's website.
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.

Tom Tom only has Guam map since update


That is really strange!
I can only suggest that you verify what MAPs are physically on your TomTom device by connecting it to a PC/LAPTOP and use Windows Explorer to look at your GPS drive folders: should see a folder for each 'country' (like GUAM).
The normal way to check which maps are registred and loaded on your device is to use TomTom Home -> Update maps function: it will show you the status or whereabout of any Maps that you have loaded or backup and which one can be purchased.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.
ps.i f you wisely backup your device on a regular basis (via TomTom Home or direct copy to your PC/LAPTOP), you could always RESTORE FROM BACKUP and start again.

I Would like to update my Garminc330. I have a glitch in the map (tells me address doesnot exist, when I know it does)


Hello mjs91411,

The Garmin maps updates page appears to be down at the time this is being posted, but the page to get updates for your GPS is https://my.garmin.com/maps/updates.htm.

You can also sign into the My Garmin page at https://my.garmin.com.

Best regards,
Ken

Garmin puts out map updates on a regular basis. You must purchase these. The GPS comes loaded with maps that are current as of the date of production of the unit. It cannot "know" when new roads are paved and new subdivision are created without being "told" via map updates. The unit knows where it is in relation to the maps loaded on it by receiving signals from the GPS satellites in orbit. If things change, the maps must be changed in order for the unit to give you correct directions.
