Firmware updates are free. If you go to Garmin's web site and download WebUpdater, you can update the software on your unit for free. If you need Map updates, you have to purchase those.

Hi, hav a garmin nuvi. Has Garmap Africa series 2008 March edition. Is it possible to update the SD card via a free download. Tnx


For maps that came with a Garmin GPS - a map can be updated for free within 60 days after purchase. The purchase date is recorded after registering the device at MyGarmin.com or when the GPS detects movement above a certain speed. If the GPS is purchased with lifetime updates - it will be free throughout the lifetime of the Garmin GPS.

Just see what happens when registering the device at MyGarmin.com. A map update will show when there's one available for your Map version.

I was on I-95 and my garmin told me take a left turn with no where to go. also I was going from Myrtle Beach to Wilmington and was told to go on 501 which is completely wrong direction


Hello,

This issue sounds like it could be solved with a Map + Firmware Update. To get you firmware updated is a free process all you have to do is navigate to this link and download Garmins WebUpdater Software. Updating your mapping is a diffrerent story, to obtain mapping for your nuvi there is 2 options 1. is a Onetime update via DVD for 49.99 or 2. is to purchase a Lifetime Mapping Update Subscription for the cost of 89.99. Ix would reccommend a Onetime Update for your unit being an older unit. All your GPS accessories can be obtained at www.gpscity.ca or www.gpscity.com.

Hope this helps!

Purchased my Garmin GPS in 2008 & have never used oe registered it. i've been told from BEST BUY that I can get my first map up-date free through you; how do I go about this? thank You Bill


Garmin give a free update if a map update comes out within 60 days of the first time your satnav accesses satellites so if you never turned it on you should be entitled to a free update. If however you did turn it on and it accessed satellites, even though you didn't use it to find directions, you may not be.

Details of how to update your maps are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
If you're entitled to a free map when you click on "Get Update" you'll be brought to the download page.
If you're not entitled to it free you'll be brought to the payments page. Otherwise the procedure is the same.

My car Navigator system is Binatone Carrera X350P I was told @ time of purchase that upgrading of maps was free. The web site refers one to TomTpm - with maps for sale - even when opened under Free Maps.


The software for Binatone Sat Navs is not free. You could always contact the retailer if they mis-sold this item to you. Alternatively, for an update call/email Binatone and they will send an SD Card to you for around £32.99.

Free update on maps


Map updates are NOT free from any manufacturer.

It takes time, research, development, and writing the software for these companies - and they are not about to give that away free.

You are given the most up-to-date maps at the time of purchase, and it is not the fault of the company if roads are constructed/changed etc.

GY-145 Goodyear GPS update


the NCC is the company that manufactured the GPS for Goodyear branding. I have phoned NCC only to be told there are no updates becasue they have not made the GPS "in years". He asked when I purchased it, and I replied 2 years ago, and he quickly blamed the dealer for not telling me at time of purchase. I asked why NCC still has the website up and active, to which he said, "yeah, but did you notice we have no updates?" When I asked him what NCC is going to do to compensate or satisfy my GPS delemma, he told me to go buy a different brand GPS.

I have got a garmin nuvi 300 and want update the maps can anyone help please


Go to https://my.garmin.com/maps/checkPlugin_updates.htm and download the map install application. Follow all the onscreen instructions and connect the GPS to your computer when told to do so. You will now be able to purchase the new maps. If you have never updated your maps before Garmin usually lets you have a free map upgrade for the first time. You will also need to register your GPS with Garmin to get the free upgrade.

Thanks for using Fixya. Hope this works. Let me know if you have any problems.

I Would like to update my Garminc330. I have a glitch in the map (tells me address doesnot exist, when I know it does)


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.
