Hey i do understand , it wld hurt ur pocket to buy unlock code....Let me tell u a way , u wld be able to download 2009 without code :)

Using this guide you will be able to update your Garmin GPS system to the latest (2009) map data, all you need is a little bit of patience and careful reading.
So let’s get started.
What do you need?

Once you have those files, follow the instructions below:
1) Download torrent, unzip the completed download to your desktop, open up the folder.
2) Go to Windows\Msi\ folder in the folder extracted and run CNNANT2009Update_ENU.msi if you want english language.
4) Select a directory to install or just leave it as the default and move on.
5) Once the installer is finished a Mapinstall icon should be on your desktop now. Run it.
6) Get Unit ID from your GPS device. Turn on unit, tap agree to pass agreement.
7) Tap: Settings –> Systems –> About See Unit ID: Write it down.
8.) Run the Key-generator
9) Put in the unit id (the # you got from your gps’s about screen) in the top box
10) Next, in the Select Map Product area of the keygen choose custom mapset and enter 325 when prompted

FID - 325

11) Now, click Generate at the bottom of the program & copy the Unlock Key generated at the bottom

Now to install the maps!
12) When you run Mapinstall it will tell you that your maps are locked, click on the unlock maps button
13) Now a new window will appear, click the Add button on the right side. Enter unlock key you copied from the keygen to the top box
14) Add the key and you will be prompt after 30 seconds of scanning for where you want to install the maps.
15) For an SD card, choose the drive. For the GPS, choose the GPS drive letter, mostly this is chosen automatically.
15 a.) If you don’t want to buy an SD card, you’ll have to remove your old maps from the GPS device. Plug in your GPS using the USB cord into your computer, open the device, and find a file named gmapprom in the folder named Garmin which will be the biggest file on your GPS at almost 1GB or somewhere around there. Backup this file to your desktop and save it in case something goes wrong, this file has all your old map data. After backing that file up delete it from the GPS.
16) You should now see a screen with the map of North America. Choose the areas you want on your GPS system, the selected areas will turn pink once clicked.
17) Finally click the Finish button. Now the process of building and transferring the maps will begin and this whole process takes about an hour.
Once done you will have the new 2009 maps on your GPS system

Hope u wld enjoy this :)

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.

LG LN735 updates map


LG LN735 map is compatible with "Desitnator"

Destinator released a 2009.q3 map upgrade.

Not sure if I'm allow to post a link, but if you do a little search, I'm sure you'll be able to find the files.

To upload the files onto your LG LN735, you will need either ActiveSync for windows xp or Windows Mobile Device Center for Vista. (you can download these program for free).

Now just CUT and Paste the map folders off your GPS onto your computer (this way you have some sort of backup). The map folders are located "/residentflash/lge/lgenavi" on your GPS unit.

Now just copy and paste the new map files (Destinator 2009 q3)back onto your GPS. Be warned, this process will take over 3.5 hours.

Reboot your GPS, and enjoy.

Update for Garmin c340 GPS Receiver


to be able to update the C340 Streetpilot, you need a Secure Digital memory card (SD o SDHC) at least 1gb i will recommend 2gb.
log into www.garmin.com
you will see some tabs on top of the page like COMPANY - PRODUCTS - SOLUTIONS - MAPS -ETC.
Place your mouse on the maps TAB and select update maps.
It will open a new page with another tab that will say CHECK FOR UPDATES.
then you will see two o more options so you will have to choose what kind of device you have (the new cell gps, garmin nuvi, garmin streetpilot, etc)
after that it will ask yo to install a plug-in into your computer (you need to have the gps connected to pc) andit will scan the model and type you own and will then show you what is available for that unit (software like voices, maps, etc)

Error when downloading map updates


Try using a different website where you can download the maps for free. These should work. If they don't, you might need a software update from the same web site before getting more maps: www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00401-20

Product Key code


Hello.

If you have lost the product key to your genuine software, and you have previously registered the software or have a proof of purchase, contact the software manufacturer and they will provide you with a new product key.

Sorry, but as guided by Federal laws, FixYa and it's experts do not provide product keys or serial numbers under any circumstances. Any expert that does so can be barred from answering questions. Those asking could have their membership deleted.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Cannot download from the disc to my garmin c330


Hi, bit confused.
If your using Disc's, then download is a different procedure.???
Assuming disc's
Just copy from the disc's , say off the desktop, you can put them on there to use it, then right click and copy the correct files,

Go to my computer, go to the nuvi drive, open up the nuvi folder, paste it to the correct folder, restart it.

If the maps are there, then tap menu, map info, tick boxes
serial needed and Unit I.D. to activate
unit I.D., menu-tools-system-about

If downloading, jack it to Pc, run download again,
Through your account @ Garmin.

Hope this helps
Regards.

Garmin Nuvi 200 2009 Map Update


Here's what worked for me. Nuvi 200 brand new w/2008 trying to upgrade to 2009.
After registering and download the map 2009, I started the install. I go to a point where I was told I needed 37MB more room. I went thru windows explorer and looked in the Nuvi. I went into the language folder and moved all of the languages I didn't need to my hard drive. I then went into the HELP folder of the Nuvi and again removed the all of the languages I did not need. I then went back to the install program and hit retry. All good from there. I hope this helps.

Unlock code


First, I'm rather surprised that you have 2009 map updates... it's still 2008.

Secondly, you may need to call GARMIN to talk to their tech support... they can straighten out this problem if you've already paid for the map update.

You should register your unit on GARMIN's website, it will speed the process.

Saving Favorites before updating Garmin c340


Use MapSource to transfer the Waypoints from the unit to your PC. If you lose them, you can then transfer them back. (I updated a C330 from 4.40 to 6.10 and did NOT lose them, however.)
