You have to go to Navtec's website. They make the maps, Lowrance doesn't. Yes, you'll have to pay. I paid $90 for the 2008 Navtec US maps. Make sure you buy maps that are on a version 1 SD card, or download them to your computer online. Iway250 doesn't support SD ver. 2 or any SD cards 4GB or bigger.

How do i update map and software data online for my trax 430


Hello.

HOW TO UPGRAGE SOFTWARE ONLINE

If you are used to using an atlas or other map, you probablyalready know that new maps are issued each year because of changes on theroads. The same thing applies to the maps on GPS units. This means that if youhave a GPS unit, you need to update your GPS software regularly to make surethat you have the latest information. Each GPS manufacturer makes softwareupgrades available for GPS unit owners. Here are tools and instruction below
USB cable (as tool)
1 Visit the website forthe manufacturer of your GPS unit, such as Garmin or Magellan.
2 Go to the"Support" section of the site and then the "Downloads"area. This is where the latest upgrades are available for download.
3 Log in if you already havean account or key in the serial number of your GPS unit. Typically you get onefree upgrade on your unit, which is tracked by the serial number, which is whyyou have to enter it or have an account.
4 View the latest softwareupdates once you are logged in or have entered in the serial number. If you areeligible for the free upgrade, you will see it listed with no cost. If not, youwill see a price listed by the upgrade. Prices vary by manufacturer andupgrade, but average around $80 as of 2010.
5 Download the upgrade to yourcomputer or order the upgrade disk. According to CC Electronics & Gadgets,there is no difference between the two upgrade files. If you want to do animmediate update to the unit, you should download the upgrade instead of waitingfor the disk to arrive by mail.
6 Connect your GPS unit toyour computer with the USB cable that came packaged with it. When you do, theGPS update software will launch on your computer. If you have never installedthe GPS software onto your computer, you will need to use the disk that camewith the unit to install it so that it will launch for you.
7 Confirm that you want tosync the unit with the upgrade file that you download, or on the disk if youare using a disk. This will install the upgrade to your GPS unit. When itcompletes, you will get a message on your screen letting you know that it isdone. You can now disconnect the GPS from the computer. Thanks

How do i get free update maps for my garmin nuvi 260w car gps


've looked for free map upgrades for my Garmin and could not find anything. I did find a lifetime map upgrade deal for around $75. It allows you unlimited upgrades for as long as you own the GPS. Go to the garmin site and search NUMaps.
Go to the Garmin web site & register and that will allow you to upgrade the maps to current. You will also need to use a USB cable and install the software for your Garmin before you can do so.

Sd card lost frm 255w nuvi


I'm assuming your referring to the map upgrade card. If that's what you need, you will, unfortunately need to buy a new one. If that's what you need to do I'd suggest you get the lifetime map upgrade package instead. It's increased cost is modest and allows you to upgrade your maps a few times a year for the life of the unit. On the downside the upgraded map downloads take over an hour to complete with a high speed Internet connection.

Map update


Nextar does not provide map updates due to the cost.

New units are released with the most up - to - date maps at the time of manufacture.

They offer an exchange upgrade for the same price as a map update would cost you.

Psg map update


Pioneer SUCKS!! After buying a GPS and being told upfront by Pioneer that a upgrade will be aval. in 90 days for a modest cost, it takes them almost 9 months to come up with it. Then they have the nerve to ask $150 for the upgrade after people have paid $300 to $500 for their GPS. I will never buy a Pioneer product again. I switched to a TOM TOM and it works better, no upgrade problems and over all it cost me less than that POS Pioneer.
