Download the update software from the garmin website; then plug your GPS system(using the cable provided) into the computer with the software update on it and click the WebUpdater and it will walk you thru the procedures.

Will not come on was working fine before

If the USB port was fine, the unit would come on regardless if the battery was good or not. This is telling me your USB port is loose. We fix these all the time.

Most issues causing this is a bad charger, dead battery or caused by a loose USB port in the back. If the port is loose, the battery will not be charged and won't even work when connected to an external charger. More info can be found here:

Nextar will not start up seems to be frozen the screen rolls I pushed the reset button and turn it off my computer does not reconize it Type your question here...

There is some software bug with your Nexstar. A bios bug problem is there. That is why, the computer does not recogonize your GPS. There is no software update for Bios. It can only be done by the authorised service center for Nextar at your town. Just contact them. On rare occations, Bios IC may need replacement. We can't get this component from open electronic spare part market. No components of any GPS, except its battery will be available at open market due to security reasons. No schematics or service manulas too. Just contact the authorised service center. Do not make any more experiments with this device please. OK

Can I update Garmin nuvi 205w UK and ROI with lifetime update maps?

Yes you can. You can find details of how to update the map at

The only difference between doing a once off update and a lifetime update is that when you click on Get Update you get the option to select between a "Onetime" or a "Liftime" update. After the first time you download an update, on a lifetime update, each time you go to update it brings you straight to the download page when you click on "Get Update"

Note: Lifetime refers to the lifetime of your satnav not to your life.

I have just bought update 2009 dvd when I installed it its coming up as 2008 I already had 2008 why is this so and how ofen do you have to update as we are going to darwin in one week we would like the...

An update does not always mean a map update, it could just be a software update, as in they found an error that had to be corrected so they released an update. Run the update. As for the maps, these can be anywhere from 6 weeks to 20 years before they get an update, depends on when the companies that do the gps mapping, make it around and have enough changes for the gps UNIT maker to purchase these new map updates. Hope this helps

I want to update my navi 250 for free, any ideas?

The only way to get a map update cheaper would be to buy the lifetime update, which lets you update your unit up to 4 times/year (by downloads from their homepage) for a fix sum only slighly more expansiver than the regular update.
By doing more than one update however, the price per update is almost half of just buying an onetime update.

Garmin Nuvi 760 won't turn on!

To tun it on, U held down the bottom right corner, and pushed the power button to the left for 8-10 seconds, while connected to the computer. It came on without the Bluetooth Firmware update screen. Once turned on, I disabled Bluetooth functionality (I wasn't using this feature, anyway.) I deleted all items in the RemoteSW folder, as advised after doing some reading on various forums, and reinstalled the latest software.

I read that this is an issue that has not yet been addressed by Garmin, and might be avoided by being careful not to turn the unit on and off too quickly. But as to why this occurred in the first place, your guess is good as mine. I had the unit on, and added an address after arriving at my fiance's house. I did not turn it off, but afterwards, the Firmware update screen appeared. This definitely appears to be a serious software glitch, as no device should attempt to upgrade any aspect of the firmware without direct user intervention, IMHO. If similar to doing firmware mainboard BIOS updates, a crash could have wiped the unit and left it totally inoperable, without some way of backing up the ROM memory in advance. Hopefully, a future software update will address this problem. If I had been on a trip and this had occurred, I would have been pretty irate.

How do I update my street piolet c-340?

If you are referring to firmware updates and you have downloaded Garmin's Web Updater, just plug the unit into the computer. The Web Updater will connect online and let you know if there are available updates. If you are referring to map updates, it is up to you when to update the maps, but new maps are usually available for purchase each year. You don't have to update them that often, though.
