You have to purchase Map updates from Garmin. They are available in SD Card form, or CD form. Once you purchase them, you can download them to your unit. You can update the firmware for free from www.garmin.com. You must first download the WebUpdater software.

How do i update my gps


A GPS will help find the shortest and fastest routes to a particular destination. When the maps are out of date, the GPS may not be able to find the best route. A GPS should be updated at least once per year. Some GPS manufacturers will allow the user to download free updated maps; however, many manufacturers require the user to purchase updated maps. Updating a GPS map isn't complicated, and will take about 2 hours to install.

1.Turn on the GPS and plug the USB cable into the USB slot located on the GPS.
2.Plug the other end of the USB cable into the USB slot on the computer.
3.Insert the map update DVD into the computer. If you have a map download, locate and open the file on the computer.
4.Click on Update Firmware located on the main menu. Click "OK" when the firmware is finished updating.
5.Unplug the USB from the computer and turn off the GPS. This will allow the firmware to reset on the GPS. Turn the GPS back on and select the language and time.
6.Reconnect the USB to the computer and click on "Update Map," then click on "Load Maps."
7.Connect to the Internet by clicking on the activation link. This will display the activation number. Find the serial number located on the back of the DVD. If you downloaded the update, a serial number was provided. Enter the serial number and activation code into the update program to continue updating.
8.Close the program after it has completed the update, and unplug the USB from the computer and the GPS. Turn off the GPS to finish the update.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Ijust purchased a garmin nuvi 465lmt it tells me to register the unit with serial # I have tried to do so why. ps does it auto update maps ?


It does not auto update the maps. You can find details of how to update your maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps. Even with free lifetime maps you still have to click on GET UPDATE. The only difference between getting the lifetime maps and the maps you have to pay for is that when you click to get the update you're taken to the download page for the free maps and to the payments page if you have to pay. With the lmt version you won't have to pay.

I attached my Nuvi 255W gps to my computer to register it and purchase new maps since mine were out of date. I downloaded the new software update after which the unit upon booting up said "no detailed...


When you went to TOOLS did you press SETTINGS and then MAPS and at the bottom of the screen MAP INFO.

When you press map info if the maps are still installed they should appear there. If there's not a tick beside the map name then it's unselected. Pressing the map name gets it selected again and could solve the problelm.

If you do need to download the maps again it may be possible, depending on how long it's been since they were downloaded or updated. (Usually it's possible for around 6 months after they were originally downloaded.)

  • Go to www.garmin.com and click the myGarmin tab at the top of the page. Log in using your username and password.
  • Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the screen and you should see your maps displayed.
  • Under your latest update you should see in blue writing a link called DETAILS
  • Click on the link and then at the next screen click on DOWNLOAD AGAIN
When you're following the prompts you'll come to one which gives you the option to download to the Satnav, Satnav and computer or Computer. Select Computer or satnav and computer. Then if you have a problem again with the map it will be easier to install it from your computer. You can find more details on installing from your computer and indeed all about updating your map at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

If you find that your map cannot be downloaded again buying a new update, if there's one available should solve the problem.

If you find that your map is locked you can get information on unlocking it at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

If you have favourites saved to your satnav it's a good idea to back them up to your computer just in case you lose them. Details of how to do this are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r8422587-backup_restore_favourites_garmin_nuvi

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.

I HAVE A GARMIN NUVI 200 AND IT NEEDS TO HAVE THE MAPS UPDATED. IT IS 18 MONTHS OLD AND I CAN'T FIND A FREE DOWNLOAD FOR IT.


Map updates are free for units which are recently sold with the older maps and the new maps have been published, ie you just bought a unit in 2009 which still had 2008 maps on it after the 2009 maps had been released. Rather than recall all the units from the store shelves, they offer free updates on the mapping software. Continually updating the maps on 18 month old units is not free, there is an update charge. What is free from Garmin is the unit's software. Hope this clarifies your assumption.

If you have downloaded the latest version of WebUpdater, you will be able to update the unit's firmware for free from Garmin. If you are looking to update the actual maps on the unit, map updates can be purchased in CD or SD card formats.

Route 66 map update


Until quite recently there was a 1.3GB download available.
However, this was just a zipped copy of the original software that is supplied by the units (which you should have on DVD).
Trumpion have now removed this download from their website.
As far as I’m aware there are currently no map updates available for download, but perhaps when the online shop is up and running they will be available.
