I would like to update the maps for free?


You can't, sorry.

Maps cost a lot of money to produce and nobody gives the data away free of charge.The only way to update your maps is to pay Garmin for either a one-off update, or for unlimited updates for as long as you own the product.

Hi my name tony i need to update my maps on my garmin 310


Garmin offers two kinds of updates on its website: software updates are free. Map updates are not. You'll need a USB cable to connect the Garmin to your computer. Then go to http://www.garmin.com
On the web site, first register your product. Then look for "Support" and follow their instructions for updating your software. After you've done that, look for "Maps" on the menu at the top of the screen. You can either purchase updates one at a time, or buy a lifetime (of your device) subscription. By the way, maps are huge files, so plan on it taking several hours to update your maps even with a fast internet connection.

Can i get free up dates on maps on gamin nuvi 310


The only time garmin gives free map updates is if a new map becomes available within 60 days of the first time your satnav accesses satellites. If you think you're entitled to a free update go through the update procedure as described at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps If there's an update available click on get update. If you're entitled to it free it will bring you to the download page. If you're not entitled to it free it'll bring you to the payments page.

I've updated my map for garmin nuvi 310 through malfreemaps but it did not work well. The map did not display as detail as they preview. I also lost the guidance voice. And my car picture keep off the most...


It sounds like you may have wiped out the Garmin internal maps with the malfreemaps and they aren't compatible with your unit. You'll have to send it in to Garmin to have them reload the units software and maps.

I'm trying to the free update to my garmin nuvi 310/360'. I've had it a few years and never updated yet. It's not listed in the mandatory software update list. thanks

I know I've tried. You either live with the old map or buy the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOUR Garmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.



Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.
