You'll have to go to the Garmin website to update. If it's the maps you want to update you'll have to pay about $50.00 but the software and firmware updates should be free. You'll also need your PC to Device cable to do this. Hope this helps.

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.

I have just bought update 2009 dvd when I installed it its coming up as 2008 I already had 2008 why is this so and how ofen do you have to update as we are going to darwin in one week we would like the...


An update does not always mean a map update, it could just be a software update, as in they found an error that had to be corrected so they released an update. Run the update. As for the maps, these can be anywhere from 6 weeks to 20 years before they get an update, depends on when the companies that do the gps mapping, make it around and have enough changes for the gps UNIT maker to purchase these new map updates. Hope this helps

Free tomtom updates


there are three types of updates that are available for your unit....
Software updates....this is for the unit itself. This updates the software on the unit....kinda like windows on your computer offering you updates.
The second is map updates...these maps are preloaded, and they will need to be purchased.....the 3rd type of free update is actually called "MapShare' corrections...this will update certain corrections on the current map that you have on your unit.

I want to update my navi 250 for free, any ideas?


The only way to get a map update cheaper would be to buy the lifetime update, which lets you update your unit up to 4 times/year (by downloads from their homepage) for a fix sum only slighly more expansiver than the regular update.
By doing more than one update however, the price per update is almost half of just buying an onetime update.

How do I update my street piolet c-340?


If you are referring to firmware updates and you have downloaded Garmin's Web Updater, just plug the unit into the computer. The Web Updater will connect online and let you know if there are available updates. If you are referring to map updates, it is up to you when to update the maps, but new maps are usually available for purchase each year. You don't have to update them that often, though.
