Hi there and welcome to fixya!

I have a Garmin as well. Updating your map is super easy. Just go to https://my.garmin.com/maps/updates.htm and enter your serial number. They will then provide you with a link to download new maps and instruction on how to install them.

Hope this helps!

If you have any more questions do not hesitate to ask and have a happy holiday,
-TJ

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.

I HAVE A GARMIN NUVI 200 AND IT NEEDS TO HAVE THE MAPS UPDATED. IT IS 18 MONTHS OLD AND I CAN'T FIND A FREE DOWNLOAD FOR IT.


Map updates are free for units which are recently sold with the older maps and the new maps have been published, ie you just bought a unit in 2009 which still had 2008 maps on it after the 2009 maps had been released. Rather than recall all the units from the store shelves, they offer free updates on the mapping software. Continually updating the maps on 18 month old units is not free, there is an update charge. What is free from Garmin is the unit's software. Hope this clarifies your assumption.

You can get the updated maps for 2009 from this website, but you will have to pay for them: http://www.gpsnow.com/Garmin_StreetPilot_c330_Maps.htm

Software upgrade


2009 is the latest mapping Garmin has. If your unit is running 2008 or before, and your unit was first used within the last 60 days, you can register your unit with Garmin.com and receive a free map update.

2008 update for street pilot i3


When you say you are clicking on the map, are you just using your mouse pointer to click or have you actually selected the Map Select tool at the top of your Mapsource screen?

Problem with uploading Map Update 2008


"Isn't it supposed to look like the image on the package? "

NO, the image on the package is just for show. The newer Garmin C5XX, Nuvi, will allow you to change to a car icon. To get 3D go to the main menu and select the wrench, then select map, then Map view to change to 3D.

Mapsource 2008 only upgrade the streets and POI (point of interest).

Cannot load map in my Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS


i dont think you can upload maps to an i3, it can only load pre-loaded maps on micro-sd cards.
