You did not specify which GPS model you have so I will be as general as possible to cover most cases.
If you go to the manufacturiers web site you can download (for a fee) updated maps. if you are not comfortable with this you can order a CD (for a fee) to be sent to you. you then connect your GPS unit to your computer and update the maps saved on it. Some units have a memory card with the map information, the manufacturer may send a new card with updated map info if this is the case.

Hope this is of some help.

Do you need to update the gps at all


The only thing you need to do (maybe) is to update the maps. make sure its maps cover the region where you will be traveling, otherwise it won't be of any help. Since roads do change over the years it is possible that your map may be inaccurate somewhere. If you are unlucky to find yourself in such an area, an old-fashioned road atlas or an area map might come in handy.

I have a Navman, since 2007. I want to update the Australian maps.


Contact them direct from this page. We are Fixya, a self help website, people just like you helping others because we can.

As the device is 10 years old, I think they are going to tell you to buy a new one. You get lifetime map updates on new ones.

Contact Us

However, I just found this page, so my advice to you is to buy a Garmin GPS Unit!

What does it mean when it says gps map need to be updated? Are there free updates?


Hi ecarter... it means that the maps on your GPS are out of date and that there are newer ones available to you at the website for your gps. Usually there is a fee charged to download the updated maps. The fee varies from one company to the next.

If your GPS is over 3 years old it might make more sense to get a new GPS rather than put money into updating an old one which is no longer under warranty. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

My Tom Tom is two years old and I was told that I should upgrade the maps each year. How do I go about doing that?


The Tomtom map updates are available by subscription from www.Tomtom.com Under most conditions it is not really necessary to update every year. The updates run about $40 per year. The best option on most of the small GPS units under $100 is to use it for 2-3 years and then just sell the older one and buy a new unit. The reason I say this is because the map updates only update the maps not the features or the software. The newer units will have new features and options for the same price as you would get with buying a map update your the older unit.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

I think Magellan makes it so if you don't update your map every year it will freeze up. Mine does the same thing and they told me to buy an update for $99 last year so I did and it worked and then after it started telling me my map was over a year old this year it started freezing up again. I don't want to pay $99 every year to keep this thing working. I wonder if Garman or Tomtom does the same thing.

Me too, The latest map available is Ver 2007b it is at the Sony Support website, I've contacted Sony about GPS maps that are 2 years old and they told me an update was due to be released in the first quarter of 2009. I told them I just bought it on Jan 20th 2009. they told me to register the GPS on the website and I would be informed when the update was ready for download and I would not incure and charges

Maps update


Navman is awful on support for map updates, which they claim are the latest. I've had mine less than a year and have decided to sell it and replace it with a Garmin. You can get maps that are 1-3 years old, even though Navman says 10 months old, for $149 USD. Horrible Company, it should be struck by lightning and let it burn to the ground!
