I have bought a GPS last year. However, there are some newly development areas which have not been covered by the existing maps in side the GPS. Please tell me how to upgrade the maps inside my GPS?

You may purchase a single map update for about $75, or a much better deal is for about $130, up to 4 updates / year can be downloaded for the life of the GPS. Check www.garmin.com for more information, or better yet, talk with Garmin Customer Support:

Monday - Thursday: 8 AM - 6 PM, Friday 8 AM - 5 PM Central Time (closed holidays)

My customer's navigation on her 2008 Prius will not work. It says her addresses do not exist.


Could be you only need a map update. Check the map version and check how long the address exists.
It also could be, the map you use, they did not bring in all roads.
In my Toyota from 2012 the navigation, missed streets that existed 3 years before the map was created. I have a 2012 map from June.

Do you need to update the gps at all


The only thing you need to do (maybe) is to update the maps. make sure its maps cover the region where you will be traveling, otherwise it won't be of any help. Since roads do change over the years it is possible that your map may be inaccurate somewhere. If you are unlucky to find yourself in such an area, an old-fashioned road atlas or an area map might come in handy.

I have a Garmin 1300 series. It has stopped charging. i have tried charging it in the car and indoors but still no success. it is less than a year old. any suggestions?


The batteries in these devices tend to last several years under "normal" conditions of use.

If the unit is less than a year old, it should be covered under the Garmin's warranty. Gather your proof of purchase (sales slip, etc.) and contact Garmin Customer Support. They'll solve the problem for you most likely by sending you a newly factory overhauled 1390T. This means you won't get YOUR GPS back - but rather a different one. Be sure to back up and remove any personally identifiable info on your GPS before sending it to Garmin. Your replacement 1390T will have the latest maps installed on it already. Simply register it like you did with the first one on their site and you're done!

I hope this helps & good luck!

I want to register my GPS Nuvi 255 WT that I bought at Christmas time, I havent used the unit yet. I didnt get any updates yet. What do I need to do? Thank you


Right now your unit will work right out of the box. If you want to register the unit with Garmin, then there should be a card inside, or directions for online registration. As for updates, maps will be updated every year, with firmware updates periodically added. For the first 5 years of owning your gps, I wouldn't recommend paying the map update fee, as they often contain very little new information. They mainly encompass new developments, etc.Lastly, be sure to enjoy your Garmin, its one of the best car gps devices on the market.

I wa in Vancouver, and there is a new bridge that opened in june of this year. Why would the GPS not able to find it and derrect us to it, instead it was telling us to go take a ferry which is no longer...


Area maps are not drawn up every year. There is easily a several year gap before mappers get back to any given area to map any new changes since the last mapping. If that bridge was just opened, mappers wouldn't have had a chance to add it to maps, allowing it to be added to the map software so you could update your gps device. Basically, the bridge was too new for your gps to know about it's existence yet.

Purchased Nuvi 200 now cant update for free?


2 years is still pretty recent for some GPS. The maps take care of all major roads before new residential areas. Contact Garmin for more clarification.

Maps Still Not Updated?


You are confusing map updates with POIs (Points of Interest). Garmin does not keep up with restaurant openings and closings, to the best of my knowledge. Updating your maps will give you the latest street information (such as new subdevelopments, one-way streets, newly opened bridges, etc.) but will not let you know that the KFC closed or that the Chalet de Alpina closed last year. Your POI information is current as of the initial programming of your unit. You can enter POIs manually, if you chose to do so, but they will only be good as long as you keep up with them.

Map correction


It may take a while for a new road/expressway to make it to updates. Tele Atlas has to verify the change, and often times there are so many changes, that some may not make it into the update right away. If it is an expressway, I'm sure newer users have reported the correction, but best advice is to report the correction again, and hopefully it will show up in TE's next set of maps.

Old map installed in new unite


I googled garmin c330 software update and went to a garmin site for this same purpose. I had no problem getting a current update (within the last year) and at no charge. There is also a user forum that is very informative. I travel extensively and have used mine for a year now. I wish I had bought it sooner Ray
