Yes there is a charge to update the Maps, about $100.00, you go to the Magellan web site and select support, if u haven't registered your phone do so, then down load the updater that will check your phone for any available updates, if there are updates avail then it will give you the info to get them, such as cost.

I received a message over my phone stating that an update is available and that I should update? Can you give me details, ie: is there a cost involved, why should I update, will it change my phone, such as...

This is free update for your application or android operating system. You should update because it improves the functions, security and add new features.
1. There is no cost involved but you may be charged for DATA usage if you update over mobile data connection. You can use wifi to avoid that. 2. It wont change your phone no., facebook etc. It wont change anything. 3. To update, go to settings,< About< System software update. It will automatically update the software.

I have never used the free updated map . Can I still get a free update if not what is the cost?

The only time garmin give free map updates is if a new map becomes available within 60 days of your satnav first accessing satellites. Details of how to update your maps are at
The only difference in getting them free or paying for them is that if you're entitled to a free update when you click on the GET UPDATE link you'll either be directed to the payments page if it's not free or to the download page if it is. The cost of a map update is approx 50 euros for a one off update or you can get a lifetime update for around 130 euros. The lifetime update is for the life of your satnav not for your own lifetime.

It's a good idea to back up your favourites before updating just in case anything goes wrong. You can get details of how to do this at

this is your lucky day i guess.. i own a nuvi 250w... what you do is go to this site

pick the updates you want... it gives you some software that you download to your computer.... hook your gps up to the computer with a usb cable (if you haven't got one let me know i'll suggest where to get one).... double click on the software... to install it then run the updater
it will detect your gps and install updates... you can update your maps tho there may be a cost for that not sure.

Anything else you want to know just ask

Take care


P.S. please take a moment to rate this solution... thanks

Can you update gps maps for a jensen NVX 200 because the default maps are outdated and there are no updates on the jensen website.

I have had the same problem in the past. I learned to check for support on anything before buying. If possible, try a Magellan. Excellent support site. Jensen, Uniden Maptraxx do not. Some are updateable, but only with their own software and it usually costs a bit.
