How do i update my gps


A GPS will help find the shortest and fastest routes to a particular destination. When the maps are out of date, the GPS may not be able to find the best route. A GPS should be updated at least once per year. Some GPS manufacturers will allow the user to download free updated maps; however, many manufacturers require the user to purchase updated maps. Updating a GPS map isn't complicated, and will take about 2 hours to install.

1.Turn on the GPS and plug the USB cable into the USB slot located on the GPS.
2.Plug the other end of the USB cable into the USB slot on the computer.
3.Insert the map update DVD into the computer. If you have a map download, locate and open the file on the computer.
4.Click on Update Firmware located on the main menu. Click "OK" when the firmware is finished updating.
5.Unplug the USB from the computer and turn off the GPS. This will allow the firmware to reset on the GPS. Turn the GPS back on and select the language and time.
6.Reconnect the USB to the computer and click on "Update Map," then click on "Load Maps."
7.Connect to the Internet by clicking on the activation link. This will display the activation number. Find the serial number located on the back of the DVD. If you downloaded the update, a serial number was provided. Enter the serial number and activation code into the update program to continue updating.
8.Close the program after it has completed the update, and unplug the USB from the computer and the GPS. Turn off the GPS to finish the update.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Magellan Maestro 4250 2008/2009 Map Update will not update my GPS


I also had problems with a refurbished Magellan 4250. The paperwork inside said to install the 4.85 firmware update which I found would not work with Windows XP Home at least for me. I used my laptop which has Vista Ult 32 bit it updated with no problem that is so far the only solution I used.

Lost maps by updating


Unit comes with pre-loaded maps. Why update? Maps on DVD is the same copy as it's on the unit.

If you have troubles make sure you're not in Navigation mode when running the update. Update does not like files still in use.

Gps


Fine digital closed its doors, there is a copany called C&C wireless selling an update dvd for $109.

I got frustrated and created my own, took a DVD I bought from fine digital before they closed, fixed some bugs and added real instructions. I sell these on ebay for $18 plus shipping. if you have a genie lamp on your navigation screen, then you should do this update for sure.

Garmin Nuvi Firmaware Update Complete, Unable to catch satellite signal


So what happens when you connect it to the PC?
Make sure no sd cards are installed while you do this.
download and install web updater, run it it gets to a screen where it looks for the gps, plug the usb cable into the GPS (no USB hubs please!!!) Make sure it detects the GPS before you continue. Select the updates you need (don't install all the languages !!) after this is done the program will report the downloads are on the garmin, unplug the unit and it will reboot and whilst rebooting it will install the updates....so don't touch it until it reboots again and displays the regular screen....and make sure the batery is fully charged before you do this...!

Update problem


I just had the same problem. Called Magellan and they sent me a Repair Authorization number so I can send it in and have a one time free repair. I just ordered a new Garmin since I need the GPS now, but I will send my 800 in for repair.

Sounds like you did an incomplete firmware update. Go here:
