As far as the car charger, I located one on eBay from a trusted seller for about $8 (includes shipping charge). Click here: http://bit.ly/dbdebr

TomTom recommends that youvisit their website to find the approved car chargers. There is a reason for that. The devices that have Lifetime Traffic update use the charger chord as an antenna to receive the traffic information.
If you are willing to lose that capability then things are simpler. Check the cable terminal that goes in the device. The end is one of two types USB mini B or USB micro B. Any car charger that has the correct end will do. But you lose the traffic updates.

Can you update or download a recent map if your battery is not charged or will not hold a charge?


Your GPS have to be able to power on long enough for you to be able to install any map update. If connected to a computer with the USB cable that came with the unit, most units will draw power through that cable, thereby letting you complete the update. There are also units that either come with wall chargers, or have wall chargers available for purchase. While they are plugged into those chargers you should be able to power the unit up and do your update. You might want to check with the retailer that sold you the unit to see if there is a wall charger available.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 610, and the cable from it to my car lighter point, to charge the GPS is lost. Where can I buy one back and how much is it? Please help. Is there a latest map for Sing/Mal for this...


These chargers are available at most places that sell garmin satnavs. If you want to get one online there's one at http://www.amazon.com/Charger-Power-Adapter-Cord-Garmin/dp/B001N8HLSW
for $14.99.
To see if there's a map you need to register your satnav with www.garmin.com. When registered log into myGarmin and click on the myMaps tab. There you will see if there's a map update, if you already have a map of the area. If not click on "Buy more maps" and browse to the one you want. For details on how to register your satnav and update your map go to http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

My Magellan 1200 car GPS says "The USB has been connected to the unit. Please follow instructions for updating maps or software". This happened before and It started to work properly later that day. I...


The USB connection to the GPS serves 2 purposes. It charges the battery and interfaces with the computer to update and or get new maps.
There are separate chargers so you do not have to hook it up to the pc.
There are also car chargers for extended service in the car.
The indication of updating may be needed but you won't know unless you select it.
I updated my Magellan 1412 recently, I downloaded a file, and when I connected the GPS to the pc, I was instructed to run the program I downloaded.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

I have a nuvi 200 and I live in Jacksonville FL there are many new roads, new highways and I drive a lot and want to update my GPS so I dont come to a lot of dead ends. What do I do?


You can update the maps using either Garmin or other third party maps. The accuracy will depend on how old the mapping data was that is used to create the map. So you want to find out if the map in that area is recently updated. You may also find that a regional map may show the details in some areas where a larger map won't.

To upgrade using Garmin you just go to garmins website

http://www8.garmin.com/updatemaps/

You may find the map update is free or you may update for a fee or get a lifetime update subscription. The gps is hooked up through the usb cable and will download and instal the updates. It's painless (sort of ;-]) and quick.

Been given a tom tom, with no charger apart from cigarette lighter adapter, ONCE CONNECTED WHEN SHOULD I EXPECT A RESPONSETO ENABLE ME TO INSTALL INFO. THANKS JENNY


Tom Tom GPS only brings a car charger and a USB to Mini USB cable that allows you to sync with your computer. For more info on your specific unit visit the Tom Tom site. You can also download the needed interface software for your unit at their web site. The USB cable isn't very expensive if you need to replace it. And once you have it, you will be able to update maps or download and install maps for other countries and even some fun voices if your unit supports it.
Download the software you need first and then connect your TOM TOM. Follow the prompts. Install any updates and you should be okay.

Don't Want to Buy the Updated Maps (nuvi 200W)


If the PC icon comes up while using the car charger, then there is a problem with your charger or mini-USB port on your Nuvi. Many after market chargers are not wired the same, causing the PC icon to show up on the screen. In this mode, your Nuvi will not charge nor can you use your Nuvi for navigation.

You can use your Nuvi with old maps. No one says you have to update. You'll just get an occasional reminder that your maps are outdated.
