SOURCE: Is there any free map updates for the garmin nuvi?

Asmany as there are FREE dinners Updates are not free, unless you paid full price for it when you bought it. Free upgrades are a deceptive myth. If you get a free uograde its usually minor and was included in the price of the pack.

SOURCE: looking for Map upgrades for Garmin Nuvi GPS

I've looked for free map upgrades for my Garmin and could not find anything. I did find a lifetime map upgrade deal for around $75. It allows you unlimited upgrades for as long as you own the GPS. Go to the garmin site and search NUMaps.

I was uploading maps to my NUVI through garmin express - my computer shut off and now my keypad doesnt work and the computer doesnt recognize the nuvi to finish install. Is there anything I can do?

Download the gps drivers from Garmin. Do a hard reset on the device. Download Garmin Express and install it to your PC. Connect your device to your PC. Garmin Express will identify it and allow you to install all the maps and software that the device has a subscription to.

Where can i download the philippines map for my garmin nuvi 255W, including street map?

You need to have your satnav registered with garmin. Log into myGarmin and click on the myMaps tab at the top of the screen. If you don't already have a map of the Philippines click on "buy more maps" and follow the prompts. If you already have a map that you just want to update you can get details of how to update it at
You can also get details there of how to register your satnav with garmin if you haven't already done so.

Please note that if this is not an update it's unlikely that your nuvi 255W will have enough space to hold a second map. If you're not updating or replacing a map I would advise against buying it as a second map. It is possible to install a second map to a memory card but there is a risk that it may not work. Memory cards in garmin satnavs appear to be very hit and miss. Some work and others don't for no aparent reason.

Hello there, I bought a china brand gps with built in garmin mobile xt, how do install road maps. I'm from the philippines by the way.. Thanks for helping me...

Welcome to FixYa!
To update your map, go to Choose your device type. I believe Garmin Mobile XT is under the "Phone Devices".
It will ask you to install the Garmin Communicator Plugin, install it and follow the instructions. You may need to connect your GPS to the computer during this process.
I'm not quite sure if a road map for Philippines is available though.
Thank you for using FixYa. Have a great day. Jas247
Note: CDRKing also released a less expensive GPS tailored for Philippines.

Why is the update for the Garmin Nuvi 200 $70 on Garmin's website? Shouldn't these updates cost less if I am downloading directly from their website? Is there a free version anywhere?

Map updates are not free. It takes time and money for Garmin to research the new roads, POIs, routes etc.

Software updates ARE free. If you are looking to update the unit's software - download Garmins WEBUPDATER, and after you install it from that link, and plug in your device - your PC will recognize/check and update (if necessary) to the newest version every time.

Maps are written with proprietary software and not available anywhere for a free download.
