Re: 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

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 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

Not finding new address when traveling on the x-4 gps

not all map/address info is on any GPS, there are mistakes in the software map program, this is a common complaint, also map software that is more then one year old is out of date as well.

Won't accept address information from user

Check in Settings -> Map -> Map Info to see which map(s) currently are installed, perhaps only a small part of the region got installed. When updating map material the unit will erase all old map material from the unit, so if you had a larger area than the one you updated to, then only the newer smaller area would be installed, and thus searchable.
If you have MapSource on your PC and the new map update installed there too, you can try to search for the same address there and see if you're able to find the address then.

Update the map on my gps

You did not specify which GPS model you have so I will be as general as possible to cover most cases.
If you go to the manufacturiers web site you can download (for a fee) updated maps. if you are not comfortable with this you can order a CD (for a fee) to be sent to you. you then connect your GPS unit to your computer and update the maps saved on it. Some units have a memory card with the map information, the manufacturer may send a new card with updated map info if this is the case.

Hope this is of some help.

RoadMate 700/760 Version 6 update maps are over a year old!!

THE CURE for this problem is NEVER BUY Magellan again!!

After paying over £800 for an early Roadmate 700 (which failed and was replaced by a failed/recon version) then to have problems with software.. now having waited a year to get map update and version 6 firmware I find it doesn't give me Magellan Tools which was promised by Magellan Support.

After several mail queries and important qustions remaining unanswered I am buying a Tomtom Go 720T which will do all the updates automatically via a cradle linked to my PV/Internet.

NEVER EVER AGAIN a damned Magellan - great when it works but it's easier to get blood from a stone than good support from Magellan.

Which Maps Are Loaded?

From your Where to?/View map screen press on the box wrench to access the settings menu. Once at the settings menu press Map, then press Map Info and you should see that you have City Navigator North America NT v8 or whichever one is loaded.
