To update the map on your GPS you must go to the following Navman Store website:

http://ukstore.navmanstores.com/uk/2009%20Software%20and%20Maps/F15%20F25%20F100T%20F200T%20F250T%202009%20Map%20Update___754.htm

You have to purchase the DVD for 29.95 pounds. The package will contain a DVD and a key. As outlined on the page the key will only update one of the areas listed. It looks like you must purchase extra keys if you want more than one area updated. You will also need to purchase a USB cord that will allow you to connect your GPS to your computer so that you can transfer the map from the DVD to your GPS. There is a connectivity kit that they also sell that will fit your GPS and computer. Again the price is 29.95 pounds. The costs involved are about the same as most GPS units. Although most manufacturers will allow you the first update for free. The subsequent updates normally will cost you another 30 pounds per year or 60-90 punds for a lifetime update. You might want to check the site to see if they support that type of an update path.

    Apparently there is not USA online store at this time. There US site suggests that you contact their Customer Service with the following information:

    Navman USA
    c/o Mio Technology USA
    47988 Fremont Boulevard
    Fremont
    CA
    94538

    714 204 3389

    Service hours are 10AM - 3PM (CST), Monday thru Friday.

    When you try to go to the Online Store they suggest that you go to the UK online store. You may want to try the original link to see if there are any online US maps for purchase. Failing that you may want to try and call them on Monday. Truth be told if this is the amount of hassle you have to go through just to update your maps you may just want to return the unit if you can and take a look at Garmin or one of the other US companies. The site mentions their units being sold exclusively at Radio Shack. If this is where you purchased your from you may want to go back to the store and see if there is anything they can suggest.

Hi I have a Navman Model s30 and I accidently removed the UK & Ireland maps because i was trying to update them, however I do not have the cd with pre installed maps and I can not seem to find any site...


Well I don't know whether you have purchased maps before, but for your navman model, i would advise you make a purchase of the latest (2010) western Europe maps from here.
Please let me know if my answer is not satisfactory.

How do i upgrade my navman sat nav with new roads and it used to warn me when speed cameras were present but does not now


Map updates are usually NOT free. Some manufacturers allow for a "one time update" within 30 days of purchase - to ensure the owner of the latest maps. Other than that, there are three models out there.

One is a the purchase of individual map sets for the geographical area of interest for a modest fee. nearly all manufacturers offer this type of update. In return, a disk containing a program to update the maps in the GPS is run on your computer while the GPS is connected via USB cable or serial cable. You might even end up maps preloaded on a removable memory card. Simply inserting the card into the slot on some GPS units will allow the the GPS to use the new maps on the card instead of those installed on the internal memory of the GPS (if the memory card is removed, the GPS uses the old internal maps).

The second model is a map subscription service (Garmin and a few others) that allows for the download of new mapsets as they become available (2 or more times per year) to your computer. This is done on older models (those sold before lifetime maps were offered) or if it is determined that buying updates one at a time will be too costly, after purchasing the GPS. Running the download with the GPS connected to the computer will update the internal maps of the GPS - just like the disk method. The subscription service costs more than buying a single update disk, but is often less than the cost of 2 update purchases. The subscription lasts a predetermined amount of time, or in many cases, "for the life of the GPS".

The last is similar to the subscription method above, only that you purchase the GPS with lifetime map subscription built in to the cost of the GPS. Included in the GPS package are instructions on how to go about starting the subscription and installing the maps - the same instructions are included with the purchase of a subscription after purchasing the GPS.

One place that sells maps for the Navman brand GPS can be found at http://www.activegps.co.uk/navman-maps.htm You may also find them available for sale in retail outlets that sell the Navman GPS devices, too.

Speed or "Safety" cameras and Red Light Camera locations are often offered as a subscription, due to the not necessarily permanent placement of these devices. Some manufacturers offer this, while others do not. Third party providers have stepped up to fill the void created by those that do not offer this information. I found these sites that have this data available:

http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/uksafetycameras-navman.php
http://www.speedcamerasuk.com/speed-camera-database.htm

There may be others that cost less or are even free. Keep in mind that maintaining this database can be difficult, so the free databases are more likely to have erroneous information in them when compared to those databases that charge for access.

I hope this was a good starting pint for you and helped. Please rate my reply - thanks!

How do you get up to date maps for navman my55T


Start at the navman website.

I should pre-warn you that they are not very friendly. About 4 years ago I bought my mom a Navman ICN 620, after 6 months I tried to get updates and called and emailed them for about four months finally when they responded they just said they were not updating US maps for any of their previous products. Looks like they are more an international company that sells in limited quantity in the US through Radio Shack stores. I have gone back to their website about 5 times since then to see if any updates were ever added and they never did.

If its an older unit I would replace it Tomtom makes a nice unit and Magellan even has a few units with free traffic updates (depending on area)

I finally just replaced the unit for her this christmas bought her a Magellan roadmate 1470 for $150.

Just FYI most GPS manufacturers want you to pay YEARLY for their map updates and if you skip an update you may have to also pay to do a firmware update. I have a Tomtom go 720 which is 2 years old they wanted $49 for a firmware update and $99 for the map update.

Maps update


Navman is awful on support for map updates, which they claim are the latest. I've had mine less than a year and have decided to sell it and replace it with a Garmin. You can get maps that are 1-3 years old, even though Navman says 10 months old, for $149 USD. Horrible Company, it should be struck by lightning and let it burn to the ground!
