Go to the Garmin website register your GPS and download the Garmin Express software, then after that is installed open the program and connect your Garmin to the computer via USB (cable required), the express software will detect and check for any updates. Please note unless you have life time maps model 255WLT) it will cost you to get the latest maps.

Can I update Garmin nuvi 205w UK and ROI with lifetime update maps?


Yes you can. You can find details of how to update the map at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

The only difference between doing a once off update and a lifetime update is that when you click on Get Update you get the option to select between a "Onetime" or a "Liftime" update. After the first time you download an update, on a lifetime update, each time you go to update it brings you straight to the download page when you click on "Get Update"

Note: Lifetime refers to the lifetime of your satnav not to your life.

Would like to update my gps nuvi 205w having difficulty doing this


To update a Garmin product, you will have to visit their official website. Please note that a software update may not be available for your product depending on unit's production date. Also note that if you are planning on updating the map, a fee around $100 is applicable. The Garmin webpage for the online updater is the following: http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
Visit this page, download the installer, and follow Garmin's instructions. Good luck, and I hope this answered your question.

My computer wont detect my tom tom go


go to tomtom's website and manually download their software. Save it to your HD and run it.

The program should automaticly load the correct drivers and will prompt you when to connect the GPS.

TAKE NOTE of how long you are allowed to get free map updates and make sure you do update the maps before that time expires.

also with my GO720 I skipped an update so instead of the update costing $49 they now want double that because my maps are 2 revisions old.
