I want to update the maps in my IGO 8 Navigation device. Can you help please?


Go to Garmins website and download the Garmin Express? software. Look on Garmins site for the update unit software. Install the software. Hook the device up to your computer then wait for software to install drivers. Once you have done that-then open the garmin software you installed. Software should take it from there.

It's out of date and hasn't been updated since bought 2 - 4 yrs, this was noted on vacation this yr. Now why are there free update downloads for other Garmin models and not the c330. They are...


You should be able to update the system software for free but not the maps. With newer Garmins they give one free map update in the first six months, after that there is a charge. On some models they have LMT or LM after the model number which means it has lifetime free map and traffic updates. The LMT models usually cost more but are cheaper than paying for map updates.
You can update your system software if you have a usb cable for it, then download Garmin updater. I will attach a link to the Garmin site.

HOW CAN I UPTODATED MY GARMIN NUVI 205W FREE ?


If your garmin came with lifetime map updates you will get them for free. The normal updates for your unit that makes it perform better are all free. You will need to install a program on Garmins website called web updater that will look for updates for your unit for you. But first you need to set up a account on Garmins web site. Click the link below or copy and paste it into your web browser.

www.garmin.com

When you get to Garmins web page look at the upper right hand corner of the page where it says My Garmin click on that and set up your account from there you can then download the web updater software and purchase new maps or update your maps if your entitled for free maps.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a Yes I was helped on the page your reading this email on. Thank you.

Hi there, I wish to install the navigation map for canada. I bought my product in singapore with pre-installed for singapore and malaysia. Please advise. Thanks


In order to install new maps they need to be purchased through garmin at there website www.garmin.com If you currently have the CD's for the area there is a plug-in on Garmins website that you will also need to install also. That piece of software is on their website under software. Once that is installed you will need to attach your unit to your computer with a USB cable if you don't have one garmin can sell you one, but you will find it much cheaper on Ebay, Garmins is a little over priced. Put the CD's in your computer and let the software run. It should prompt you the rest of the way on the install. Ill be honest with you I have never heard of anyone running two different countries on their garmin but if you have room on your hard drive it should work. But as a safe guard send off an email to Garmins tech support just to make sure your not going to experience any problems with two different countries on your unit. garmin usually get back to you in 24 hours with their response.

I hope this helps you out if so please give me a Yes that I did help you out. Thank you.

My browser is mozilla firefox. I successfully downloaded the nuMaps Lifetime North America and am unable to run it. I get a message that reads installation failed.


Hello,

Your interenet browser may have crashed leaving your new maps incomplete, try re downloading them from garmins website. If this dosent work call garmin tech support and have them remotely access your PC they may be able to fix it.

Hope this helps!

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.

Why is the update for the Garmin Nuvi 200 $70 on Garmin's website? Shouldn't these updates cost less if I am downloading directly from their website? Is there a free version anywhere?


Map updates are not free. It takes time and money for Garmin to research the new roads, POIs, routes etc.

Software updates ARE free. If you are looking to update the unit's software - download Garmins WEBUPDATER, and after you install it from that link, and plug in your device - your PC will recognize/check and update (if necessary) to the newest version every time.

Maps are written with proprietary software and not available anywhere for a free download.

Nuvi 260w no drivers and distance is off by 200 feet.


200 feet is not out of the ordinary for "Some" locations.
You do need to update it though using Garmins WEBUPDATER. Get it free here:

To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
