I need my free map update that came with my nuvi 205w


Hey steven barber,

To update the garmin nuvi 205 for free, you'll first need to have your GPS, an USB cable and a computer. There are web sites that will allow you to down load an update to your GPS for free. Make sure the version you pick is compatible to your computer to download it. You'll want to plug the USB cable into both the GPS and the computer, to download the upgrade to your GPS.


Check this link out for the Garmin myDashboard for your GPS

Good Luck!

How do i update my gps


A GPS will help find the shortest and fastest routes to a particular destination. When the maps are out of date, the GPS may not be able to find the best route. A GPS should be updated at least once per year. Some GPS manufacturers will allow the user to download free updated maps; however, many manufacturers require the user to purchase updated maps. Updating a GPS map isn't complicated, and will take about 2 hours to install.

1.Turn on the GPS and plug the USB cable into the USB slot located on the GPS.
2.Plug the other end of the USB cable into the USB slot on the computer.
3.Insert the map update DVD into the computer. If you have a map download, locate and open the file on the computer.
4.Click on Update Firmware located on the main menu. Click "OK" when the firmware is finished updating.
5.Unplug the USB from the computer and turn off the GPS. This will allow the firmware to reset on the GPS. Turn the GPS back on and select the language and time.
6.Reconnect the USB to the computer and click on "Update Map," then click on "Load Maps."
7.Connect to the Internet by clicking on the activation link. This will display the activation number. Find the serial number located on the back of the DVD. If you downloaded the update, a serial number was provided. Enter the serial number and activation code into the update program to continue updating.
8.Close the program after it has completed the update, and unplug the USB from the computer and the GPS. Turn off the GPS to finish the update.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Hi


Global Positioning Devices, or GPS, are tracked by satellites to locate their position on Earth in real time. Because they track their own location, they can help you drive, boat, fly or even walk to a particular destination, while giving you information such as your speed, elevation, and arrival time as well. Smart phones have GPS technology built in that is able to update maps automatically, but traditional GPS's have maps loaded onto them that you must manually update occasionally via the internet. Different companies have different ways to do this, but most include straightforward directions on the company's website.
Go to your GPS Company's website, and locate the "Maps" section. It will usually be found under "Support" or "Updates" if there is not an obvious "Maps" tab on the homepage. Plug your GPS into your computer with a compatible USB cord.

Follow the steps to installing the USB driver or plug-in from the website. Click the "Download" link, and read and agree to their terms if asked. Then press "Save file" if asked.

Go into the "Maps" section of the company's website again, and go to the "Update maps" section. Your GPS should be detected by the driver or plug-in, and this will let you know if there are available updates to install. There may be updated maps available for free, but you may have to purchase them. Purchase and then press "Download." Follow the prompts for accepting the terms of agreement, saving the file, and updating your GPS device.

Restart your GPS by unplugging it from the computer and waiting for it to update the new maps. Use as normal.

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.

Uppdatering


To update the map is very simple, follow the steps below:
  1. All you need to do is to go to garmin nuvis website,
  2. Then you place the cursor on the maps link on the page, a list will pop out,
  3. Then you select update maps,
  4. Then you click on check for updates,
  5. A page will come up prompting you to install plug ins,
  6. Install the plug in,
  7. It will bring up a list with the available maps. After installing the plug in.
That is how you update your maps.
But if you have the plug ins, it will automatically bring out the lists once you click on update maps. Try to download the "webupdater" for your nuvi on your computer so it will inform you once there is a new update.
Complements of the season to you over there.

NEED UPDATES


Yes, you can get SOME updates for free... indefinetely.

You will need the latest version of TomTom Home software, available for free from www.tomtom.com.

Install the software on your computer BEFORE connecting the TomTom GPC to the USB port of the computer.

The free updates you can get are:

1) "QuickFix" updates. This contains the global positions of GPS satellites, allowing the TomTom GPS to get a faster lock on the GPS satellites (the GPS will get a lock within 5-10 seconds of being turned on, instead of 2-5 minutes on some other GPS brands). It is suggested that you update the QuickFix at least once a week. If you don't do it often, the GPS will just take longer to find the GPS satellites, that's all.

2) Minor updates to your map(s), but only the ones submitted by other TomTom users.

3) Updates to POIs (Points of Interest), such as new stores, malls, gas stations, parking lots, etc.

Whole-map updates ARE NOT FREE
