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.

How to update your Garmin Satnav maps


To update your garmin satnav map you must have your satnav registered. If it's already registered skip to paragraph 2 below.

1. To Register your Garmin Satnav
  • Connecty our satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com
  • Select your country
  • Click on Register your garmin product
  • Follow the prompts
Note you will be asked to create a username and password. Write them down and keep them safe as you'll need them again anytime you want to update your maps

2. To update your maps

  • Connect your satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com
  • Click on myGarmin and log in
  • Click on myMaps.
  • If there's an update available it will be shown beside the name of your map.
  • Click on Get Update and follow the prompts.
Note map files are large so you'll need a broadband connection to download them. If you don't have broadband you'll have an option to buy the update on DVD.

  1. If The Map Is Too Large To Install To Your Satnav
    When you go to download the map by default it tries to download it to the satnav i.e. not the SD/Mini SD card. You need to change this. When the website recognises the satnav follow the prompts. It will give you 3 options for the download destination.
    • Download to satnav,
    • Download to Computer and Satnav or
    • Download to computer.
    As the website is updated, from time to time, the method of selecting the download destination changes. Sometimes it shows up as a drop box with a drop-down arrow showing your satnav name. Click the drop-down arrow and select the option to download the map to your computer. Sometimes it shows the 3 options as text headings with tick boxes beside them and you get to tick the option you want. Whichever way it shows up select the option to download the map to your computer. This will install it on your computer's hard drive.

  2. After it's downloaded the map should begin to install automatically. (If not double click on it and it will). It should be allowed to install to your satnav first as Garmin will not allow it to install to your SD/Mini SD card unless it's first partly installed to the satnav. This is so they can ensure that it's installed to the correct satnav.

  3. To Install The Full Map To Your SD/Mini SD Card
    To install the map to your SD/Mini SD card, insert the card into the card slot of your satnav and connect it to the computer. Click the windows start button on your computer. Then click the GARMIN progam and then MAPINSTALL. This runs the map installation program. When the install program finds your satnav and you get the option to install the map there again by default. Click on the drop-down arrow, where it shows your satnav as the destination, and select the drive letter of the SD/Mini SD card. This will be different to the drive letter for your satnav. The map will then be installed to your SD/Mini SD card.


  4. Problems With Older Nuvi Satnavs Reading Maps On 4 Gb Or Higher SD Cards
    When you install a map to an SD card older nuvi satnavs can have difficulty getting the satnav to read it. It will install to it without problem but when you try to operate the satnav then it cannot load the map and will close down the satnav unless you remove the SD card. The reason for this is that 4 Gb and higher cards are SDHC which operate differently from SD. To solve this problem you should use a class 2 SDHC card, which is the slowest type available. You can identify the class by the small figure on the card. It will be either 2, 4, 6, 8, or 10. Before you install the map format the card as described below. Also use webinstaller to check that you have the latest version of operating software on your satnav.

  5. Format the SD card with "Panasonic SD Formatter" available from http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/sd/download/sd_formatter20.html rather than the standard windows format function. Select the fast format option and be sure you have selected the drive letter of your SDHC card as it will format your hard drive or indeed your satnav just as easily if you select one of them by mistake.

  6. To update your software or check that you have the latest version, you can download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
    Connect your satnav to the computer and run the program. It will search for any updates to your software.
Class 2 SDHC cards are harder to find in shops today as they are being replaced by the faster classes. They are however still easily available on ebay if you can't find one in the shops.

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"

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'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.
