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 my garmin nuvi 2595 LMT GPS is taking me off freeways


Some GPS has this problem once in a while. When it happens, turn the GPS off and restart it again. Problems should be solved.

We are trying to download updates to our nuvi 250w. are there any updates for it. it is 3 years old.


I would suggest to update your maps every 2 years, it will then give you the new roads and highways... it will cost anywhere from 50 to 60 dollars... well worth it.

go to www.mygarmin.com

Hi, We live down a private road. For the past 2


You can contact garmin and ask for a map correction but unfortunatly until they update it AND the people have that updated map on their GPS
it will continue. best bet but a dead end sign at the front of the drive way.

My garmin 205 keeps on loosing signal and it shows the location on the screen were ther is no roads


when the Garmin shows you are driving in the middle of a field, it is because the software doesn't know there is a road there. New roads seem to take two years before they are updated to the units software disks. I bought 2009 software _specifically_ because two of the highways I use had been extended, but the new disk didn't fix the problem! It is kind of funny where the image on screen shows you are in the middle of a field and the car image does a shimmy left and right!! :>)

Garmin 350 road disappears


You are in an area that the map does not support. If this is a new construction or street, highway etc it has not been updated on your map loaded on the device. You can check with Garmins website to see if a map update is available. If not you will have to wait until it is updated and released by Garmin.

Hope this helps
