I dont have disc for GNS 8365 how can i get map updates? Can i update with out the disc Can i get free downloads or do i need 2 pay. thank you for yr help

The supplied SD memory card can be connected, with use of an SD card reader (not supplied) to a PC for updating the navigation software or uploading media files. The updates would be available at the Uniden website, but there don't appear to be any as they have discontinued that model. The SD card uses the FAT16 file format, so Windows will probably not be able to read & write to it without additional software.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa! We would sure appreciate a 4 "thumbs-up" rating for this FREE answer. Happy holidays!

I have a faulty Uniden GNS-8360 not working in GPS mode

On the CD that comes with the device there is a folder for the Navi software which contains sub folders. Simply copy the whole folder from the root directory to another SD card and insert into the device and reboot. This probably also works if you overwrite the Sd card that comes with the GPS.

Map updates for Uniden GNS 8365

Called Uniden almost 12 months ago to be told they were going to provide updates in one month. They never did, I called back and was told they would then be available by June 2008. They never were. Their site now shows the GNS8365 as a Discontinued Product and no further info available. Good marketing ploy to get you to spend money on another up to date product. I bought a Tom Tom instead.

Gps Stopped working (Uniden GNS 8431) and this message comes up on the screen- Fatal Application Error mobilenavigator.exe has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. Program: Mobile...

You hopefully have the mobile navigator software CD that came with the GPS unit. Copy the entire folder and contents of the CD to your SD card (make sure you make a full backup copy of the exisiting software on the SD card first).
