My map is outdated, how can I get an uptodate map


Go to the website for your GPS provider. There should be the latest update for every model of the GSP you own. Download the update to your computer. Your GPS should have come with a cable to connect it to your computer (through a USB connection). Connect your GPS to the computer and open the update file. It should automatically begin transferring the information over to your GPS for update. If this does not work, I suggest contacting the GPS provider, as they may have a very specific update process that requires driving to one of their stores. If you need anything else, let me know!

My gsp only has a sd card no usb slot so how do i transfer the update to my gps Thanks


Depending on the type of GPS you have, you have a few options...

If the update instructs you to put the update files on the SD card, you need a means for your computer to access the SD card. This can be done by using an USB SD card reader, which can be picked up at your local electronics, digital photography store or online.

If you have another device that allows the transfer of data between a computer and the device (and it uses SD cards), you can put the SD card for you GPS into your other device, connect it to the computer through USB, and transfer the update files. For example, if your digital camera uses an SD card, you could put the GPS SD card into the camera, and then connect the camera to the computer.

Make sure you're updating correctly - sometimes the update is a file you run on your PC that in turn transfers files through a different means onto the GPS. Read the manual for your GPS for more information regarding transferring files onto the GPS and updating.
