Gps need to be updated but don't know how to update it

Depending on the model, you may or may not have free map updates. You will need to connect your GPS to your computer and log into Garmin. You will need to down load Garmin Express from the Garmin web site. Once the software is installed, it will either find your gps, or tell you connect your gps to your computer. After that, just follow the screen prompts.

I can't figure out how to get to Interface Options on my Garmin Streetpilot c340

When you go to the gar in site make sure your GPS is plug in to your comp. You will be ask to e terms the model and serial of your GPS then you will be able to see if there are any updates for the device. If there is the site will want you to download the update to your comp. Then it will tell you not to turn off your GPS most likely it does it all by it self. I have a GPS like yours I updated the map and the voice.

Each time I turn on my GPS, it tells me to update my GPS. How can I fix this problem or update my GPS?

Well, with NO BRAND or MODEL specified, you can only get general directions. Most units need to hook up to your computer, and then you navigate to, register with, and get updates from the manufacturer of the GPS that you have. The website will have all directions, etc.

GY-145 Goodyear GPS update

the NCC is the company that manufactured the GPS for Goodyear branding. I have phoned NCC only to be told there are no updates becasue they have not made the GPS "in years". He asked when I purchased it, and I replied 2 years ago, and he quickly blamed the dealer for not telling me at time of purchase. I asked why NCC still has the website up and active, to which he said, "yeah, but did you notice we have no updates?" When I asked him what NCC is going to do to compensate or satisfy my GPS delemma, he told me to go buy a different brand GPS.
