Yes. You should ask for the free CD to upgrade and there is 2008B map on the CD, and you have to update both firmware and map.

You can't update from versions below 2 directly to 3, you have to request at free CD update.

It will not power on. The name garmin is on the screen with a black background.what could the problem be?


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

I got files from internet to update 2009 map for my gps, but I don't know how to get them into the gps.


1. Download the SONYNAVU_U73T_3.2.CN.BIN file to a temporary or download directory.
2. Connect your nav-u personal navigation device to the computer using the supplied USB cable.
3. Power on your nav-u personal navigation device and wait until the "Connect to PC" message is displayed on the nav-u screen.
4. Start the nav-u Tool software on the computer.
5. At the "nav-u tool" window, click "Upgrade System".
6. On the right side of the Upgrade Screen, verify that the target version is 3.00.
7. On the left side of the Upgrade Screen, click the "Browse" button, and go to the directory where the SONYNAVU_U73T_3.2.CN.BIN file was downloaded and then click "OK".
8. In the "Name" box, click to select "3.02 cn NV-U73T" update, and then click the button.
9. After the update file is transferred to the nav-u device a "Transferring Upgrade file completed." message is displayed on the computer.
10. After the system software update is complete, the nav-u device will automatically shut down and restart.

Wait until the message goes away, It is updating your GPS. Turn off GPS and unplug. There should be a meesage on the Computer saying Done or something to that effect. Then do the above.
