I want to do an upgrade on my Garmin Nuvi 255W.


UpGRADE or UpDATE?

Upgrade, sell the old one and buy a new one.

Update, Register the unit on the Garmin site. Download Garmin Express to your computer. Connect the unit with a mini-D charging lead and you can take software upgrades. For map updates, it depends as some are free and some are on a subscription.

Go on I'net. Garmin Free Lifetime Traffic and Maps Upgrade. Register the unit (No matter if it's a gift or your purchase. Register 1st. Follow all instructions for same. The s/n is on bottom of the unit usually. P.S., you have to use a magnifying glass usually to read it. Same information is on the Units box that unit came in. Sometimes you just have to be persistent to register it and get then get quarterly upgrades. Garmin does not make it easy. If the unit comes with free Maps and traffic, Do NOT Buy the $100 upgrade for same. Most new units comes with them.

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

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.

Upgrades for garminc330


Upgrade maps are only produced maybe once a year so maybe none available yet. You should be able to download them from their website. However-they are not free.

My momrex mmp8565 is telling me it's having trouble booting up and then shuts down


Read you manual p. 59
http://www.memorexelectronics.com/manuals/MMP8565CFirstDraft10-9-07.pdf

If the unit acts erratically, reset the unit by inserting a thin object (such as a paper clip)
into the recessed Reset button. For the Reset button, see page XX for the
button's location.
FOR FIRMWARE UPGRADE
Please visit our Web site at www.memorexelectronics.com to check if there is new
firmware available.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Before upgrading the firmware, please backup all of your media
files on your computer. After upgrading, format the unit to complete the upgrade
procedure.

Firmware upgrades


Installing/upgrading firmware is usally not requemented. You will not be adding any new feature to u're unit. There's no reason to do reinstall or upgrade the firmware other than to repair the unit in the event the units firmware is corrept.
