Updates are never free as they cost a lot of money to keep the maps updated. If you intend to keep the unit, pay the fee for unlimited updates. There are usually about 4 a year.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 265WT about a year old. Do I need up[dates and are these free, please?


If it's working alright and you're happy with the map there's no need to update it. New maps are released approximately every 3 months for Garmin satnavs but unless there are a lot of new roads there's no need to update that often. Details on how to update your satnav, if you want to, are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

Garmin only supply free updates if a new map became available within 60 days of the first time your satnav accessed satellites. If you never checked to see if you were entitled to a free update follow the update procedure outlined at the above link. When you click on Get Update, if you are entitled to it free you'll be brought to the download page. If you're not entitled to it free you'll be brought to the page where you pay for it.

How can I update my garmin 255w for free?


Garman gives you one free update for maps - if you download them within 30 days. Otherwise you have to pay.
To find out what you need. Use the usb cord provided with the unit and plug it into your pc. Go online to the GARMIN website and download the manager. From there it is just follow the prompts. You might Email and ask GARMIN to give you one free update for maps? The firmware updates and other updates such as POI are free.

NEED UPDATES


Yes, you can get SOME updates for free... indefinetely.

You will need the latest version of TomTom Home software, available for free from www.tomtom.com.

Install the software on your computer BEFORE connecting the TomTom GPC to the USB port of the computer.

The free updates you can get are:

1) "QuickFix" updates. This contains the global positions of GPS satellites, allowing the TomTom GPS to get a faster lock on the GPS satellites (the GPS will get a lock within 5-10 seconds of being turned on, instead of 2-5 minutes on some other GPS brands). It is suggested that you update the QuickFix at least once a week. If you don't do it often, the GPS will just take longer to find the GPS satellites, that's all.

2) Minor updates to your map(s), but only the ones submitted by other TomTom users.

3) Updates to POIs (Points of Interest), such as new stores, malls, gas stations, parking lots, etc.

Whole-map updates ARE NOT FREE

Garmin gps update for free


There are no free updates for Garmin GPS's. If you have a handheld model, there are free maps on the internet but they are not supported by Garmin.

Firmware updates are free. If you go to Garmin's web site and download WebUpdater, you can update the software on your unit for free. If you need Map updates, you have to purchase those.
