The message to update map materials is a message, which cannot be removed, that just recommend you to update the map. You don't actually have to, but your map material is getting out of date. This message will show every time you boot your unit, and the only way to remove it is to buy new map material.
Simply put, it's a message that "recommend you to buy map update until you're annoyed enough to do it", but doesn't actually force you to do it.

Can i use garmin C320 street pilot in italy


Most stock units are equipped with a US & Canada map if purchased in the US. Yes, the unit will work in Italy but you will need to add a Europe Map on an SD card, as the internal memory may not be large enough to hold both maps.

Garmin Street Pilot. No upgrades available from Garmin. Can it be updated some other way?


Hi Steve,

The Street Pilot line was one of the first automotive GPS devices from Garmin, and has got to be 8+ years old. Garmin contracts with Navteq for map software. At one point, Garmin needed to have Navteq compress their new maps so that they wouldn't need to increase the amount of memory in the GPS units and still be able to include all the way points, and new features such as junction view, traffic receivers, text to speech voices, etc. These new maps have an "NT" descriptor in the title. "NT "stands for "New Technology". Non-NT maps are no longer produced.

The new Garmin GPS hardware had to included the ability to decompress maps "on the fly" for display on the screen. As a result, the NT maps will not work in the older Garmin devices.

Your best bet is to either use the Street Pilot - knowing that the routes may no longer provide accurate information, or purchase a New, Refurbished or Used GPS. Garmin offers "Lifetime Maps" as an option for nearly all NT capable GPS units either as a subscription after GPS purchase, or "in the box" when buying a Garmin GPS. You'll get FREE map updates for that GPS up to 4 times per year. This assures you of always having the most recent maps available in your GPS. Look for a model that has "LM" in it (ie: nuvi 1490LM). If it has a "T" in the model name (ie: nuvi 1490T), it has Lifetime Traffic. If it is listed as "LMT" (nuvi 1490LMT) it has both Lifetime Maps and Lifetime Traffic.

I hope helps!

Garmin street pilot c330 goes on and then goes off


Try to charge the unit for 4 hrs by using a wall adapter and then try power on it again and if still the same after you full charge the unit try to contact the manufacturer check if there is a latest firmware update for the unit.

I have just purchased a Garmin GPS 255W and am learning to use it. I have studied the on-line manual, but cannot find the answer to my question. My question is, when a street will not show up does it...


I found the solution by trial and error. Thanks for your response, however, I am not interested in expert help at this time. Please remove me from your contact list. Regards, bckay2

Garmin street pilot c340 battery appeared low, used USB cable to hook up pilot with my computer but device doesn't appear to turn on, computer cannot locate device on Drivers, can I rechare steet pilot...


I followed the instructions of the Online manual for the Garmin Street Pilot c-340, I removed the faceplate of the Street Pilot and then using my thumb pressed down on the reset button. I then pressed the power on button on the side of the device- the screen lit up, I then plugged one end of the USB cable into my computer and the other end into the device. The information on the screen of the device indicated the Lithium Battery was charging properly.

Street Pilot C340


The only way to update the maps is to purchase new maps from Garmin and download them via the computer. The 2008 map updates are currently available, and Garmin has told me new maps will be out in a few months.
