How do i get free update maps for my garmin nuvi 260w car gps


've looked for free map upgrades for my Garmin and could not find anything. I did find a lifetime map upgrade deal for around $75. It allows you unlimited upgrades for as long as you own the GPS. Go to the garmin site and search NUMaps.
Go to the Garmin web site & register and that will allow you to upgrade the maps to current. You will also need to use a USB cable and install the software for your Garmin before you can do so.

I have a garmin 260w that was a gift in dec 2009. I want to update the maps to the unit and thought there wasa n option at no charge but I cant find it. Do you have instructions on how to update unit for...


Sorry, no free maps. I know I've tried. You either live withthe old map or buy the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOURGarmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:

To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater First you have to set up an account at Garmin using theserial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmware updatefor free. After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website,perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect yourcompatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from yourcomputer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start","Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater" REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a mapupdate.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps. By the way, thecorrect Garmin approved power OR download cables are a must!! Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

I want to update my garmin 260w with free updates on the maps. My unit is 2yrs old.


Garmin provides free updates through their website for the first 60 days after a new unit is put into service. After that, you'll have to purchase map updates. (Software updates are free, though.)

That said, you should first point your browser to www.Garmin.com and go through the process of downloading and installing their browser extension. You might have to reboot your computer or restart your browser to finish the installation.

Return to Garmin.com and register your nuvi. At some point, it will ask you to connect your nuvi to the computer via the USB cable. Do so. Your computer will also go through the process of installing the drivers necessary to view the nuvi as a storage device (so you can download photos and the like).

Once everything is up, the browser extension will tell you what the status is of your nuvi and of its maps. If you're entitled to a free map update, it will allow you to do so. If you're due for a software update, you can do that, also.
