Can you upgrade garmin satnav for free

If you're referring to the maps, then no. Not legally.

Maps cost a huge amount of money to create and update, and nobody gives that info away for free. The only exception is if you bought the unit brand new and register it within 90 days of first use, then any map updates released in that time will be free. There are other resources which claim to offer free compatible maps, but they are as up to date and accurate as you may expect free maps to be, so probably not as good as the maps you already have.

If you just want to update the points of interest then there are many free resources, just search "nuvi poi" on your preferred internet search engine.

Hi It is more important to know how to add POIs. Here is a simple tip: 

1. Create some directory especially for download. I use the following one: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM 

2. Download and save all CSV and BMP files to that directory. You may create any subdirectory and use it to save POIs for that category. 
I use: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Restaurants, C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Petrol etc. 

3. Garmin's POI Loader will find all files in these subfolders and will use them to create a category. 
Garmin POI Loader will search through the directory C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM and will create/transfer all corresponding POIs to your connected GPS. 

4. You can remove any POI file simply by removing it from your POI folder. and re-running the POI Loader software. This POI update procedure takes about 1-2 minutes. 

In summary, keep your POI files updated on your PC and run POI Loader to update your GPS or SD card via any SD card reader.

Garmin 255W solution

I have a Garmin as well and as we speak, I am at our vacation house which is essentially in the middle of no where (but its gulf front so the lack of even a BP is worth it!). I had a similar problem on the way here and there are a few reasons I know that will cause it:

1. If there was recent construction on that road (you have an older, not ancient, just older gps unit) then the maps are slightly out of date. try going to and getting the most recent update.

2. I know for a fact that in heavy urban areas (or the rural sort), there are tons of problems with this sort of thing. Its just a matter of basing their maps on faulty databases.

The only real suggestion I have is that you update the software from

Hope this helps and have a good night!

To update to the latest requires buying a map update. Too expensive in my book. Garmin does have a POI loader utility that you can get at their site. Various web sites have POI listings that can then be installed. You can also find individual POI listings for such things as all Walmarts at a company's web site.
