Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
Walmart told me I could update this FREE
I registered it today and garmin said no updates for me
This bloody thing is so outdated it doesnt pick up my street. New area yes but over two years old so the system should pick it up.
I do not want to pay them almost 80 bucks to update because that is almost the cost of the system to start with
Shame on GARMIN
If anyone knows of a way to update free please let me know this is so not fair and my daughter is going on a trip alone which is why we bought the bloody thing to keep her from getting lost
Please help if you can
Click on the wrench icon, then "Settings", down arrow, "Map", and then "Map Info". If it shows 2009, then you probably aren't entitled to a FREE update.
And your new residential area just may not have been added to the maps yet. I know there are a couple of changes around here I'm still waiting to see show up.
Not sure if this question applies to the U.S. or Britain since you used the slang "bloody", but if the U.S., I think the nüMaps Lifetime™ is a better deal. A bit more expensive, but you get 4 updates a year for life. Plus, right now I have NT 2010.10, which may have your new developement.
Oh, and I think you'll find that GPS's are a bit like trivia questions -- 10% of the answers are wrong. That's not always the mapper's fault though.

2 years is still pretty recent for some GPS. The maps take care of all major roads before new residential areas. Contact Garmin for more clarification.
