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!

How do i update map and software data online for my trax 430


Hello.

HOW TO UPGRAGE SOFTWARE ONLINE

If you are used to using an atlas or other map, you probablyalready know that new maps are issued each year because of changes on theroads. The same thing applies to the maps on GPS units. This means that if youhave a GPS unit, you need to update your GPS software regularly to make surethat you have the latest information. Each GPS manufacturer makes softwareupgrades available for GPS unit owners. Here are tools and instruction below
USB cable (as tool)
1 Visit the website forthe manufacturer of your GPS unit, such as Garmin or Magellan.
2 Go to the"Support" section of the site and then the "Downloads"area. This is where the latest upgrades are available for download.
3 Log in if you already havean account or key in the serial number of your GPS unit. Typically you get onefree upgrade on your unit, which is tracked by the serial number, which is whyyou have to enter it or have an account.
4 View the latest softwareupdates once you are logged in or have entered in the serial number. If you areeligible for the free upgrade, you will see it listed with no cost. If not, youwill see a price listed by the upgrade. Prices vary by manufacturer andupgrade, but average around $80 as of 2010.
5 Download the upgrade to yourcomputer or order the upgrade disk. According to CC Electronics & Gadgets,there is no difference between the two upgrade files. If you want to do animmediate update to the unit, you should download the upgrade instead of waitingfor the disk to arrive by mail.
6 Connect your GPS unit toyour computer with the USB cable that came packaged with it. When you do, theGPS update software will launch on your computer. If you have never installedthe GPS software onto your computer, you will need to use the disk that camewith the unit to install it so that it will launch for you.
7 Confirm that you want tosync the unit with the upgrade file that you download, or on the disk if youare using a disk. This will install the upgrade to your GPS unit. When itcompletes, you will get a message on your screen letting you know that it isdone. You can now disconnect the GPS from the computer. Thanks

Sd card lost frm 255w nuvi


I'm assuming your referring to the map upgrade card. If that's what you need, you will, unfortunately need to buy a new one. If that's what you need to do I'd suggest you get the lifetime map upgrade package instead. It's increased cost is modest and allows you to upgrade your maps a few times a year for the life of the unit. On the downside the upgraded map downloads take over an hour to complete with a high speed Internet connection.

HI, I have a Garmin Nuvi 200W. Do you get frre map upgrades? Where do I go and how do I go about to update the maps? It has never been updated in about 4 years.


The only time Garmin give free maps is if a new map comes out within 60 days of you first connecting to satellites with your satnav. If you have it for four years I'm afraid you'll have to pay for the upgrade. Details of how to update your garmin nuvi satnav are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

Map update


Nextar does not provide map updates due to the cost.

New units are released with the most up - to - date maps at the time of manufacture.

They offer an exchange upgrade for the same price as a map update would cost you.

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.

Our state agency purchased 300 Nuvis for our police cars. I am the training officer and am being asked what benefit otaining the $70 upgrade would be. Is this urgent? Is is needed? Could we get a free...


It depends on how long you have had them.

I have heard that a buyer is entitled to a free upgrade if the unit is new and the upgrade is requested within a certain amount of time.

Apparently there the firmware in the unit records when the unit first obtains a satellite lock and that date is is used to determine how long the unit has been in operation. I'd check into it right away.

The problem is you have so many units and it takes about an hour to upgrade each one. So, its not going to be a quick process.

You need to see what map is already on the unit by selecting the tool icon, then system, then maps and then "map info".

The 2010 maps are already out. Newer maps means you unit is more up-to-date with current roads that have been added.

No it is not urgent but if you can get it for free, then you may wish to consider it.
