I answered a similar question for others having this issue- while the brand isn't listed on Tele Atlas's site for map updates, it is more than likely completely compatible with another brand's maps. I'd encourage you to contact Tele Atlas customer support to see which device's updates you can download, as the mapping data is the exact same- http://www.teleatlas.com/WhyTeleAtlas/ContactUs/TheAmericas/index.htm

How do i update map and software data online for my trax 430


Hello.

HOW TO UPGRAGE SOFTWARE ONLINE

If you are used to using an atlas or other map, you probablyalready know that new maps are issued each year because of changes on theroads. The same thing applies to the maps on GPS units. This means that if youhave a GPS unit, you need to update your GPS software regularly to make surethat you have the latest information. Each GPS manufacturer makes softwareupgrades available for GPS unit owners. Here are tools and instruction below
USB cable (as tool)
1 Visit the website forthe manufacturer of your GPS unit, such as Garmin or Magellan.
2 Go to the"Support" section of the site and then the "Downloads"area. This is where the latest upgrades are available for download.
3 Log in if you already havean account or key in the serial number of your GPS unit. Typically you get onefree upgrade on your unit, which is tracked by the serial number, which is whyyou have to enter it or have an account.
4 View the latest softwareupdates once you are logged in or have entered in the serial number. If you areeligible for the free upgrade, you will see it listed with no cost. If not, youwill see a price listed by the upgrade. Prices vary by manufacturer andupgrade, but average around $80 as of 2010.
5 Download the upgrade to yourcomputer or order the upgrade disk. According to CC Electronics & Gadgets,there is no difference between the two upgrade files. If you want to do animmediate update to the unit, you should download the upgrade instead of waitingfor the disk to arrive by mail.
6 Connect your GPS unit toyour computer with the USB cable that came packaged with it. When you do, theGPS update software will launch on your computer. If you have never installedthe GPS software onto your computer, you will need to use the disk that camewith the unit to install it so that it will launch for you.
7 Confirm that you want tosync the unit with the upgrade file that you download, or on the disk if youare using a disk. This will install the upgrade to your GPS unit. When itcompletes, you will get a message on your screen letting you know that it isdone. You can now disconnect the GPS from the computer. Thanks

No maps


I am glad to HELP YOU!

If you don't have maps definitely your device becomes useless...
HERE is the GARMIN webpage that will lead you [by clicking the " I agree to the above terms and want to proceed to the download page" - down to the bottom of the page]
to the download area. There you will get the maps and any other upgrade for the firmware.

GOOD LUCK!

... and don't forget to RATE, please...useless...

We have a garmin nuvi 255w. We need to know what is the latest map update. Our gps has "CN North America, NT 2010.30" version on it. Is ther something newer than this.


Maps for most GPS devices are updated several times a year. Your map is from 2010 and should be updated. You can go to the garmin site and pay to download and install upgraded maps or do a google search for map upgrades and you'll find some services offering lifetime upgrades for a few dollars more than the Garmin one time upgrade. I did this and have had no problems updating the maps on my Garmin Nuvi 250.

I have recently purchased a TomTom How do I upgrade the maps?


Hi,
If this is a used TomTom, not under warranty, and probably more than a year old, you will need to go online and join their service, and probably have to pay for map upgrades. I know this doesn't sound enticing, but all upgrades are not free. Check here for more info:

Good luck. Thanks, Bill
