It say's that it is a year old and needs to be updated


It may not be absolutely necessary to update the maps every year, but if you wish to, you need to go out to the Garmin Nuvi website and download the map update you want to your computer. Then you need to plug your GPS into your computer using the USB cable provided.

The site will prompt you to download the communicator and that's how the file will be transferred from your computer to your GPS.

If you need further assistance, please let me know.

What does it mean when it says gps map need to be updated? Are there free updates?


Hi ecarter... it means that the maps on your GPS are out of date and that there are newer ones available to you at the website for your gps. Usually there is a fee charged to download the updated maps. The fee varies from one company to the next.

If your GPS is over 3 years old it might make more sense to get a new GPS rather than put money into updating an old one which is no longer under warranty. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

We are trying to download updates to our nuvi 250w. are there any updates for it. it is 3 years old.


I would suggest to update your maps every 2 years, it will then give you the new roads and highways... it will cost anywhere from 50 to 60 dollars... well worth it.

go to www.mygarmin.com

When I turned on my Garmin nuv 255W Car GPS Receiver it reminded me to update it because my software was over a year old. My question is how do I update if possible without incurring any cost? Andy


Hi soami696,

To update the software for your unit, free of charge, follow these instructions:

1. Go to http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater, and download WebUpdater to your computer.
2. Connect the GPS unit to your computer using the Mini-USB cable.
3. Run WebUpdater and follow the on-screen instructions.

After confirming that you want to the update, WebUpdater will automatically download the update and install it on your device.

Reboot your GPS receiver, and you should have the latest updated software from Garmin.

For a copy of a manual for your series of GPS units, go to this link and download here:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/2675_OwnersManual.pdf

This manual covers operation of several 200 series Garmin GPS Receivers, such as 205, 205W, 215, 215W, 255, 255W, 265, 265W, 275, and 285W, etc.

Let me know how this works out for you, and if you need further assistance, I'll be glad to help. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

Have NAVTEQ Q1-06 in IWAY 500C. Looking for latest update.


Assuming you are interested in the latest Map update, try contacting Panapacific, Although I have not purchased this product, they say they have the iWAY500c and iWAY600c Navteq Map Update Q1-10 v1.7 listed as Part Number: PACCARQ110

Although listed on their website, the product is currently unavailable for purchase online. Contact their customer service department at 1-800-726-2636.

The map update is $74.99 plus shipping and tax.

I need free updates for my magellan gps


if you are looking for map updates I have not been successful in transferring data from one unit to another. That requires their "process" experimentation on bypassing their updates on a older roadmate 700 series caused alot of pain.

If you need a firmware update that is available at their website

If you have a unit more than 3 years old don't waste money on updates the new roadmate 1430 or 1470 run about $150 and the 1 touch navigation is much better than the older software. There have also been MAJOR improvements in the GPS receiver and sensitivity is far superior to those units built even just two years ago.
