Can i get free up dates on maps on gamin nuvi 310


The only time garmin gives free map updates is if a new map becomes available within 60 days of the first time your satnav accesses satellites. If you think you're entitled to a free update go through the update procedure as described at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps If there's an update available click on get update. If you're entitled to it free it will bring you to the download page. If you're not entitled to it free it'll bring you to the payments page.

I am trying to register my new Nuvi Garmin 1490T and get free map update. I have registered etc but am not getting the map updates required for brisbane etc.


The only time Garmin give a free map update is if a new map comes out within 60 days of your satnav first accessing satellites. To see if you are entitled to one at present go to www.garmin.com Click on the myGarmin tab at the top of the screen and log in. Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the page. Your map should be shown on this screen and also if there's a map update available. If there is an update available click on get update and follow the prompts. If it's free you won't be asked to pay. If it's not it will bring you to a screen where you'll be asked to put in your credit card details.

If there's no update available at the moment you may still be entitled to a free update when the next map update becomes available. There's usually an update in February which has not yet been released so keep an eye out for when it does.

You can find information on how to update your map at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

My maps are gone how do I fix it


The map may be unselected. To select it;
  • Press TOOLS (the spanner icon) in the bottom right corner of the WHERE TO and VIEW MAP screen
  • Press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings icon)
  • Press MAPS and then MAP INFO at the bottom of the screen
This should show you the maps installed on your satnav. There should be a tick beside the map name if it's selected. If not press the map name and the tick will appear. This should solve the problem.

If this does not solve the problem the map may be locked or deleted. If the map is locked it should say so at the map name. If there's no map name then the map may be deleted.

You can get details on how to unlock your map at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

If the map has been deleted you may be able to download it again from the garmin website depending on how old it is. Generally you can download the map for about 6 months after it was first installed.
  • To download the map again go to www.garmin.com
  • Click on the myGarmin tab at the top of the page.
  • If you haven't already registered your satnav do so on this page by clicking "Register your garmin product" and follow the prompts
  • When you're registered log in using your username and password
  • Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the page
  • Your satnav name will be on the left hand side of the page and your map name in the centre. On the right it will either say "No update available" or "Update available"
  • If there's an update available downloading and installing it will solve the problem but you'll have to pay for it. Alternatively click on where it says "Details" in blue under your map name
  • This brings you to a screen where, if the map is not too old, you get the option to download it again. Click on "Download again" and follow the prompts to reinstall it.

Owners manuel for Navman MY50T


Hi Raymond,

You can download a free copy of your owner's manual on this page:
gps-devices/user-guides/">http://www.navman.com.au/car-gps-devices/user-guides/

If you need to update your maps, check this site for downloading instructions and downloadable ISO files for installing the more current maps. They may or may not be free, depending on your previous map purchases. They also sell the upgrade software, but its a little pricey. They are located in Australia.

Upgrading Maps with Instructions:

I hope this gives you the info you need. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

I would recommend you only do a map upgrade if you definatly need to as looking at other posts on this forum lots of people have problems after trying to update maps.
Updating maps is NOT FREE , you have to pay for updates and after downloading updates you need to reactivate the map with your product code . Only do an update after backing up your existing maps other sie you might have trouble reverting back if the download goes wrong.

GOOD LUCK
