    need help to upgrade

  • Jill oberheide Jan 24, 2008

    YES! I also got a Garmin C330 for Christmas, and it seems to be reading old address - like 5 or more years ago - where new roads have come in, or new subdivisions, etc....but I thought "GPS" is supposed to KNOW where you are! I'm afraid of getting lost someday. You might say, "Get a map"! But I payed nearly $200 for "someone" ELSE to tell me where I'm going!!!



    I have only these other critiques to tell me what to do next...

    Why do I have to pay for an update?

    Had I paid something like $50 or $60 for the unit I could under stand the cost.

What you have to pay for is new maps. Updates to the firmware are free. Garmin buys it's maps from a company called Nuviteq, I believe. The maps that are pre-loaded are only good until changes are made to roads or new developments are added. Since the maps are for the entire United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, they do not opt to give you free map updates. I do not know of any GPS company out there that is giving map updates free at this time.

Garmin puts out map updates on a regular basis. You must purchase these. The GPS comes loaded with maps that are current as of the date of production of the unit. It cannot "know" when new roads are paved and new subdivision are created without being "told" via map updates. The unit knows where it is in relation to the maps loaded on it by receiving signals from the GPS satellites in orbit. If things change, the maps must be changed in order for the unit to give you correct directions.

"Updates to the firmware are free. Garmin buys it's maps from a company called Nuviteq,"

Garmin get their maps from a company called Navteq (NVT), headquarter located in Chicago, Illinois. This company is in the process of being purchased by Nokia (NOK).

Tomtom uses map produced by Tele Atlas, located in Amsterdam. Tomtom is in the process of purchasing Tele Atlas.

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.

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.

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 Garman c340 will not let me enter a state and complete an address. I tried resetting the system and noting changed the system seems confused.


Sounds like you have an update problem. If a GPS cannot find an existing address. Your map is not up to date. Probably have the 2008 version.

TO GET 2009 MAP IS NOT EASY! Software update is, from the Garmin site you can update software easily BUT THE MAP... you must purchase for $69.99 OR if you're a technical person who knows the following instructions you can save some $$$

search torrent for
"CNNANT2009-1 MapID 396"
under torrent sites, you know what you're doing.

Use these instructions if you have downloaded it.

Download these first:
cgpsmapper.exe
gmaptool.exe
MapSetToolKit.exe
and MapSource where u can directly get from Garmin site
http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=209

Create these folders on the root drive: (I will choose one to make things easier, you can change)
C:/grmtmp
C:/grmtmp/extract

Connect your GPS to USB, and BACKUP then remove
X:/Garmin/gmapprom.img and gmapprom.sum (may be gmapsupp.[img+sum]) approx. 1GB

1) Copy gmapsupp.img from this torrent to C:/grmtmp;
2) Extract gmaptool.exe, cgpsmapper.exe and mapsettoolkit.exe to C:/grmtmp/extract
3) Open a command prompt, and navigate to the extract folder ("cd/grmtmp/extract")
4) Run "gmaptool -S ../gmapsupp.img" Note that is -(CAPITAL S), lower case s is for different option
5) The above will extract files, you will get some warnings about 10 degrees. Ignore them.
6) Run "cgpsmapper mapset00.mp"
7) Run "MapSetToolKit"
8) In MapSetToolKit, press "Install A Existing Mapset"
8a) TDB File: "mapset00.tdb
8b) Overview map: "mapset00.img"
8c) Registry name: "WhateverYouWant" (I did "Grm2009.1Update")
8d) Leave TYP files blank, and hit "Install"
9) Close MapSetToolKit and run MapSource
10) Ignore any requests to unlock map, not ready yet.
11) Go to "Utilities-Get Unit ID" and Find Device with your GPS plugged in USB. Write down Unit ID.
12) Run Garmin Unlock Utility, Enter that Unit ID at the top.
13) Select under "Select Map Product"
14) Ender 396 for the FID/MapID, use the Generate button to get 25char code.
15) In MapSource go to "Utilities-Manage Map Products"
16) Go to "Unlock Regions" Tab, and hit "Add...", enter 25char code, comment optional
17) Now on the main MapSource screen, type 'm' to enable map tool.
18) You should see a large white rectangle, with rectangle outlines (these represent NA maps)
19) Click and drag to select them all, you can click "Map Set Name" if wanted.
20) Click the "Send to Device" button. Wait an hour. Enjoy.

Why is it that with my tom tom GPS i cant search for exact addresses?


get the latest APPLICATION from www.tomtom.com or by plugging in via USB. This should update your device and you will be able to find lots more when searching, some addresses do not exist ( to the tomtom) and these should be FLAGGED as MAP ERORS using your device. Then they will be amended by Tomtom corp. in later updates of the maps, gor this reason you also need to keep you tomtom updated via MAPSHARE.
