Can you upgrade garmin satnav for free

If you're referring to the maps, then no. Not legally.

Maps cost a huge amount of money to create and update, and nobody gives that info away for free. The only exception is if you bought the unit brand new and register it within 90 days of first use, then any map updates released in that time will be free. There are other resources which claim to offer free compatible maps, but they are as up to date and accurate as you may expect free maps to be, so probably not as good as the maps you already have.

If you just want to update the points of interest then there are many free resources, just search "nuvi poi" on your preferred internet search engine.

Important note about maps: Due to our high volume of sales, every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by will come with the most recent map version. The current map provides data through April 1, 2007. If you purchased a Garmin GPS before April 1, 2007, you can purchase a map update on SD card. We will notify customers who purchase from via e-mail whenever new map updates become available.

Tom Tom 910 map free update

nope im afraid you will have to cough up for the new maps (map corrections etc will only show new one way directions, and new or adjusted POIs), might be a good idea to wait till brand new maps are available before you splash any cash, good luck

The site is probably the best place to find information on this.

Firmware for the F700BT is available on the pioneer website.

Software for the PC to be able to create POI's (Points of Interest) is also available from Pioneer.

Is it necessary to up date info after one year ownership

Well, the good news bought a magellan. So you get free updates. Garmin, and others charge upwards of $79-100 to get an update. As long as the routes you take dont change too much, or have any areas missing on your maps you should be fine.
On the other hand, If you live near a lot of new consrtuction, and/or are traveling out of town frequently, I would recommend the free upgrade you get with magellan, just in case of any new roads or changes in places you have never been before.
Hope this helps,

p.s. Sites like give great FREE updated and often user made POI's (points of interest) for your GPS which the other company made updates dont include.
i.e. on a recent long trip - I downloaded custom POI's for:
Rest stops
Weird Tourist stops
and National Parks

all available free from for most GPS's

Verify the map version by touching the wrench and then Map and the Mapinfo. You should see something similar to the following. The lastest map is 2008. If you have purchased your unit with in the last couple of month, then you are entitle to a free map upgrade from v8 to 2008
