Who makes the GPS? We need to know that in order to tell you the right website. Usually there is a cost to download updated maps and the cost is not much less than buying a new GPS.

Hello mm1112,

Map updates for your TomTom GPS can be purchased and installed through the TomTom HOME GPS manager program. You will need to download and install the TomTom HOME software onto your computer.

You can find this software on the TomTom Plus Services website located here: http://www.tomtom.com/plus/service.php?ID=17.

Best regards
Ken

SOURCE: RoadMate 700/760 Version 6 update maps are over a year old!!

Anyone tht has ever read about Magellan should have figured out how stupid the engineers are as the 360 unit has a button called repair and the ONLY funtion this button has is to wipe out the OS from the unit with no way to reinstall it with Magellan's help. I know how to fix it but if you call Magellan they tell you it is impossible to fix. Why a company would put a button on the unit that the user should NEVER use is an insight to the IQ of the engneers they have.

The map update is available from Panasonc for $150, it is advertised for $300. But when you call to order it they will tell you it's $150, and it with come with a disk and SD Card. Just Follow the instructions to do the update, this update will also apply to the iPod video problem too. The number is 1-800-405-0652 and tell them you need to purchase CA-MAHD08U.

Have a look at the same map update problem I answered about a month ago, here on FixYa.

You can update the firmware by downloading and installing Garmin's WebUpdater.

If this was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" - Thanks!

Garmin Nuvi 2 years old. consistently says i need to update maps. I have hooled it up to my computer. no clue how to update the maps


The maps on any garmin unit are only good for 1 year then new maps become available that are more up to date then you currently have in your unit. You can purchase the new maps at Garmin's web site. Here is the link:

www.garmin.com

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a YES on the web page you just received my response on. Thank you

After downloading update on garmin site, my nuvi still says"more than one year old need to update". My Dashboard on garmin site say updated successful??


What did you update? The message you are getting refers to the maps. If you have not updated the maps in more than a year, you will continue to get that message. If you update the firmware, voices or anything else, it will NOT stop the message.

Need to update the maps


Garmin Sat Navs do this when the map is one year old. It can be updated by going to the Garmin website www.garmin.com. Connect your Satnav to your pc and register it if you have not already. The site will lead you to your update which can be downloaded if you have broadband or posted on DVD if you prefer. It is expensive so you need to consider if it's worth updating or not.

TomTom map of Poland is hopeless. should get a free update on a new device. There are a lot of new roads in Poland and the device which I bought 2 months ago does not take it into account at all. Can't...


You will only get a free update on a new device if you install tomtom home on your computer and login withing the first 2-3 months of purchasing your device. Also, if you purchased a device that is "refurbished" or "recertified" then you do not get this free update and your map can be up to about a year and a half old. In this case, you would have to purchase a map update. To update you will have to install TomTom Home on your computer (download from TomTom.com) and login. You can typically purchase one update for about 45 USD or purchase a year of updates for just a little more (like 59.99 USD). A "year of updates" gives you an updated map each quarter for one year. I don't know that I would have bought a TomTom for use outside of North America or the UK. Sorry.

When I press on for example, a way home, it shows me the right place I am, but it does not show me the new roads/highways to get there, only the old ones.


The problem is that your maps are out of date. This can happen pretty quickly in growing areas. The problem is that it is quite expensive to purchase new maps for your device and mostly cheaper to purchase a newer device on sale. If you are handy and don't mind risking your device you can search on the web and find ways to put free software that uses free maps from sources like openstreetmap.org

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.
