I wouldn't bother if I were you. Halfords gave me a number to
phone which was for the company who provide maps for the
LG. Sorry to say I have forgotten the name of the company
and don't have the phone number.

The reason for saying that is the person I spoke to said it cost
£85 + P&P,not worth it when a new one costs the same or
just a little bit more

Hope that helps you decide.

Is there free maps that you can download from the internet, or do you have to pay R350 every year to update you garmin.


There are no free maps. You can buy "lifetime map updates" which costs around 85 Euros. When you go to buy the update from the garmin website it gives you the option of a once off update or a lifetime update. If you buy the lifetime update you get to update your satnav 4 times each year for the lifetime of your satnav. Lifetime in this instance means the lifetime of your satnav not your lifetime.

I just bought a new garmin 1300 gps love it does this model have free up date or when will it need to be up graded later.


If it's the 1300 it does not have free updates. The only time you get a free update is if a new map comes out within 60 days of your satnav first accessing satellites. If it's the 1300LMT then it does have free lifetime updates. The LMT stands for lifetime maps and traffic. Of course you're paying for the updates in the price of the satnav. (Lifetime means the life of your satnav not your life)

If yours doesn't have the LMT you can buy lifetime map updatess on the garmin website. Updates come out around 4 times each year but it's up to yourself how often you want to update. The satnav usually displays a message advising you to update when the map is a year old but it will continue to work if you don't update.

You can get information about how to update your satnav at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

You can buy the map from the garmin website. You need to have your satnav registered. If it's not registered this is how to register it;
  • Connect your satnav to your computer
  • Go to www.garmin.com
  • Select your country from the drop-down list
  • Click on the "myGarmin" tab at the top of the screen
  • Click on "Register your garmin product"
  • Click on "Automotive" and follow the prompts
You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe as you'll need them to buy or update maps. Before buying the map of India take a look at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps where you'll find information on how to save your map to your computer or a memory card if you want to keep the map that's already on your satnav. If you download it directly to your satnav you may overwrite the map that's already on it.

When your satnav is registered;
  • Connect your satnav to your computer with the mini USB lead
  • Go to www.garmin.com
  • Click on the myGarmin tab at the top of the page and log in using your username and password
  • Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the screen
  • On the left side of the screen, click on "Shop for more maps"
  • Click on "View additional maps for this product"
  • Scroll down to the map of India and click on "Download" if you want to download it or MICRO SD/SD if you want to buy it on a memory card.

Why if you buy a garmin at game you have to pay R500 at trapers to up date it for you is there no way that i can update it on the internet i feel if you buy it that the soft ware much be corect and not...


If you bought the satnav new then you should be entitled to a free update from www.garmin.com. Garmin claim that if a new map comes out within 60 days of the first time your satnav acquires a satellite connection you can update it free from their website. Details on how to register and update your satnav can be found at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

Note: When you register the satnav log in to myGarmin and click on myMaps. The map on your satnav should be shown. If there's an update available it will be shown beside the map name. When you click on GET UPDATE it will let you know if it's free or has to be paid for.

MY MAPS HAVE GONE FROM MY SATNAV HOW DO I DOWNLOAD NEW ONES


The maps may just be unselected rather than gone. To select them press the spanner icon (Tools) then press Maps. At the bottom of the screen press Map Info and see if there's a map there. There should be a tick at the side of the map name. If there's not press the map name and the tick should appear. The map will then be selected and should be ok.
If you need to get a new map or map update connect your satnav to your computer. Go to www.garmin.com. If you have already registered your satnav click on myGarmin and then on myMaps. (Details on how to register are below) Your map should be shown there and if there's an update available click on GET UPDATE to download the updated map. If there's no update and you need to buy a new one click on Shop For More Maps and select the ones you want. Follow the prompts.

TO REGISTER YOUR SATNAV
Go to www.garmin.com and select your country. Click on myGarmin and then on Register Your Garmin Product. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe as you'll need them anytime you want to update your maps.

I am trying to update my garmin 255w and not getting anywhere. I have no idea what I am doing wrong. Help


To update the maps you connect the satnav to your computer. If you haven't registered your satnav already you need to do so first. Go to www.garmin.com. Select your country and then click on myGarmin. If your satnav is already registered skip to the next paragraph. If it's not registered click on Register Your Garmin Product. When registering you'll be asked to create a username and password. Write them down and keep them safe as you'll need them anytime you update your maps.

When you have registered your satnav, or if it's already registered, Click on myGarmin, enter your username and password and log in. Click on myMaps. If there's a map update available it will say so beside the map name. Click on Get Update and follow the prompts.

To update the software, connect your satnav to your computer, download and install webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 if you haven't already done so. When it's installed it will search for updates. Follow the prompts.

I've bought a Garmin Nuvi 215w. The gps does not display all the road names on the map. Is there any way i can update the firmware?


I don't think updating the firmware will solve the problem however if you want to try you can update the firmware by connecting your satnav to the computer and downloading webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 When you have it set up it will automatically check for the latest version of software for your satnav. I don't think that will solve your problem though. The satnav will only show road names that are on the map.

Before trying to update the software try this solution first. On the satnav press Tools, then Settings, then Map. Under Map Detail press whatever it says and you'll get a list of options. Press Most. This will show the most map details and will show any roadnames that are on the map.
