Need to know how i update the maps card for it


The latest version of Garmin Express provides the ability to install a map update directly to an SD card.
The SD card installation option will only appear when updating a compatible device that does not have sufficient internal memory for the largest allowable map region. When using the SD card installation option, critical files are loaded to the SD card so it must remain in the device after the update to ensure full functionality. For the largest size SD card a device can use, refer to: What is the largest size Secure Digital (SD) card that an automotive device can accept?
The SD card support during the map update will only function with up-to-date software. It may be necessary to update the device's software with Garmin Express prior to updating the maps. These devices do not support the SD card option:
  • Nissan 700
  • nuvi 295
  • nuvi 300 series
  • nuvi 500 series
  • nuvi 600 series
  • nuvi 800 series
  • nuvi 805 series
  • nuvi 5000
  • StreetPilot series
  • zumo 450
  • zumo 550
  • zumo 665
For devices that do not support using the SD card with the map update application, any maps that do not fit in the internal memory can be installed to the SD card manually, using these instructions:

I bought a second hand nuvi 1310 about a year ago, and now the unit is saying it needs map updates and updates for speed cameras. Where can I obtain these updates?


The manufacturer offers updates at their website. Here is the link for the update page: http://www8.garmin.com/updatemaps/

You'll need to plug your Nuvi into your PC (it uses a mini-USB to USB data cable), and the website detects which unit you have and which updates are available for it. You'll have to download "MyGarmin Agent" and/or Garmin's Communicator Plugin first, if you don't already have them installed on your computer. It's a good idea to have a MicroSD card plugged into your Nuvi before connecting it to your PC (The Nuvi and the memory card each show up as removable drives in My Computer). Otherwise, if the unit is too low on memory when you attempt to update, you'll either have to get a MicroSD card to expand the available memory, or deal with reduced map data coverage.

Unfortunately, I don't believe the updates are going to be free for you -- Garmin has very specific conditions in order to qualify for an update at no charge. Don't quote me on that, though.... Not knowing all the specifics on your unit or it's purchase, I can't say for sure. I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya.

Good luck

Can i download maps of germany,switzerland and france onto my Garmin Nuvi 255 now that it already has australia and nz on it


You can, but...

You'll need to load the mapping onto a removable memory card, as your device's memory isn't large enough. Adding a memory card with additional maps really slows the machine down, painfully so. Buying the European mapping pack isn't cheap: you can buy a brand new satnav with full European (including UK and Eire) mapping preinstalled for about the same price. Click here for a current example, but there are cheaper ones if you abandon Garmin in favour of Medion or other brands.

It works out even cheaper if you sell the old satnav to fund the purchase of the new one. When you need the Oz/NZ mapping again you can do the same thing again as by then your original unit will probably have out of date maps anyway.

Please take a moment to rate my answer.

I am going to NZ for 10 days and would like some up to date maps for my F10 Navman, How do I download them on the cheap; and Will I lose the current australian maps that I have loaded


I don't know if there's a cheap way to download maps, but your original maps should not 'disappear' in the update as long as you have enough memory in your unit.

Safer way to do this is to load the additional maps on memory card and use that (I take it that you're not taking the trip every week or so, so the maps don't need to be constantly in the device. On the other hand, you can keep the card in to keep the slot from getting dirty.)

Free map updates for Garmin c330


Garmin has released new maps. Most of their units are entitled to a free update if the unit was purchased recently Just a heads up to anyone who recently purchased a C330. According to Garmin's tech support, the map udate 2008 is not free to those of us that recently purchased a C330. Only to those who purchased a C340 and up. Their excuse is that it is a "low end" unit, and also that the memory cannot hold the full US maps on the DVD. Gee, I can purchase the update for $69.99 and load a subset of the maps if I want, according to the person in tech support, but I cannot receive it as a free update. So, apparently buyer beware if you purchase Garmin's "low end" units. You will apparently not be able to receive a free update of maps, even if the unit you buy is already out of date.

GARMIN 510 2009 MAPS


I'm quite sure you need to purchase the 2009 City Navigator SD card to update the maps. That what I did last year to get the 2008 City Navigator maps. You will need to leave the SD card in the unit to use the new maps though..

I haven't been able to determine whether it's possible to update the actual install map on the device. I'm guessing it's possible but would require a computer and an map update to write directly to the device. If I find steps to update the installed maps, I will post them here.

I am trying to load the 2008 map update to my c330 unit but nothing happens. I get a no active connection error when using the dvd and from mapsouce I get a no memory error when it is supposed to save over...


First, some questions:

A. Is the unit turned on and plugged in via the USB?
B. Is the USB connection active?
C. Have you downloaded the USB drivers to the machine you are using?

You can only load one region on the C330. It will not hold the entire update. That is why you are having problems loading it via Mapsource. There is a way to load the second region onto and SD card for use, though.

I Would like to update my Garminc330. I have a glitch in the map (tells me address doesnot exist, when I know it does)


Garmin puts out map updates on a regular basis. You must purchase these. The GPS comes loaded with maps that are current as of the date of production of the unit. It cannot "know" when new roads are paved and new subdivision are created without being "told" via map updates. The unit knows where it is in relation to the maps loaded on it by receiving signals from the GPS satellites in orbit. If things change, the maps must be changed in order for the unit to give you correct directions.
