Hi,


To update the map you have to login to Garmin website with the login information you gave during the purchase of nüMaps Lifetime,

All you need is your Garmin device, your computer and a USB cable.

There are no monthly fees or continuing maintenance costs; you pay only once per Garmin GPS since its a lifetime plan.

UPDATING:
When you want to update your maps, connect your device to your computer and log into your myGarmin account, where the latest map data is ready to load to your individual device.and clicking update will automatically update from the internet to your device

NOTE:

Internet access is required. Not for use with dial-up Internet access. Includes USB device drivers.
For nüMaps Lifetime North America, you will need 7.5 GB of disk space to download and run this update. After installation, you can delete the download executable file from your computer to free up 6 GB of disk space.
For nüMaps Lifetime Europe, the file size for this map update is 3 GB. You will need 11 GB to run this update. After installation, you can delete the download executable file from your computer to free up 9 GB of disk space.
Your device should be connected when you give update option

IMPORTANT:

This map update can only be used to update the preloaded maps that came installed on your Garmin device.

For example, a Garmin GPS device preloaded with North America maps only cannot be updated with a nüMaps Lifetime Europe Map Update, and vice versa.check what updat you bought from garmin is it correct one.

nnüMaps Lifetime map updates may only be installed on one device. Please purchase additional quantities for additional units.

Please leave me comment if you need further assistance

How can upgrade my garmin nuvi 255w gps?


Hello,

Using the Garmin WebUpdater will update the operating software.
http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Map updates subscriptions are available as lifetime or onetime updates and are registered to the map that is installed on the Nuvi.
http://www.gpscity.com/garmin-numaps-north-america-lifetime-updates.html

http://www.gpscity.com/garmin-numaps-update-city-navigator-nt-2012-north-america.html

The Nuvi 255w is an older unit and is probably due to be replaced. Once the battery dies on the unit, it can not be replaced easily.

There are a number of Garmin GPSs that come with lifetime map updates.

Want to update maps on my 660 garmin with my numaps Lifetime


You can get details of how to update your maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
When you're updating you get the option to select onetime or lifetime updates. Note that lifetime refers to the lifetime of your satnav not your life. Also you should note that the average expected lifetime of a garmin satnav is 5 years so if yours is near that you should consider if it's worth the extra cost.

How do you download updated maps to he garmin nuvi


You can purchase map updates from stores that sell the units, or new this year you can buy updates for the life of your unit from the Garmin website which cost $120. You can get up to 4 updates per year. If you wish you can just purchase a single update for $70.

Also download the Garmin Webupdater software from the site which allows you to connect the Nuvi to your computer and will give you free software updates for the unit itself.
