No, Garmin will not provide map updates for free. You can update the unit's firmware for free from Garmin's website, but if you need new maps you must purchase them and download them into the unit. It should not be necessary to do this right away, though. Even if the unit does not have 2008 maps on it, unless there are major changes to the areas you travel most, it should get you around fine until you do decide to purchase updates.

Free update my gps nuvi 255/1bv655463


Hello,

If you are looking for map upgrades there are a couple options.
One is to purchase the update on DVD then load it to the unit.
Two Purchase a Lifetime Subscription to mapping which would allow you to update the GPS every 3 months.
You can also obtain a onetime update VIA download on Garmin.com.
For best prices check www.gpscity.com

I am looking to update without paying for it


You can update the software for free at anytime. There is a free map upgrade in the first six months when you purchase it after that there is a fee. I will attach a link to the Garmin update site.

Good day we have a Garmin Nuvi 350 we looking for free updates for voor the nuvi. good you tell us were we can find them. the computer is a Apple. i hope to hear soon from you thanks miss...


Free Garmin Map updates can be downloaded within 90 days of purchase or are free for a life time when it's purchased with lifetime map updates.
Software updates are always free.

Maps / software can be updated online by registering your Garmin at MyGarmin.com using the serial number and your name. On this website you'll be guided through the steps to download / install the required web browser plugin to communicate with your Garmin Nuvi.

When connected over the USB cable - MyGarmin.com shows compatible map or software updates. These will be free in the conditions mentioned above.

Note that updating a map online requires a 3Gb download. This can take a very long time and requires a stable internet connection. Also your Mac need to have at least 5 Gb of free space to install the Map.

A Nuvi software update is much smaller and takes less time to complete.

Do i get a free map update for the just purchased Garmin nuvi 3790T How about speed camera.


Garmin provides free online map updates (if available) within 90 days after purchase. A purchase is recorded when the Garmin Nuvi detects a certain travel speed or when the Nuvi is registered at MyGarmin.com

To qualify for free Map updates, register the Garmin Nuvi at MyGarmin.com using serial number and owner name.

A map update is a large download - which can take considerable amounts of time. When updating a Garmin map with a PC one needs at least 5Gb of free space at the C drive.

Hi, hav a garmin nuvi. Has Garmap Africa series 2008 March edition. Is it possible to update the SD card via a free download. Tnx


For maps that came with a Garmin GPS - a map can be updated for free within 60 days after purchase. The purchase date is recorded after registering the device at MyGarmin.com or when the GPS detects movement above a certain speed. If the GPS is purchased with lifetime updates - it will be free throughout the lifetime of the Garmin GPS.

Just see what happens when registering the device at MyGarmin.com. A map update will show when there's one available for your Map version.

Can I get free map updates?


I believe they give you one free map update when you purchase the item and register it. After you use the free update they cost.

You can purchase one time maps or you can buy life time updates through the myDashboard on Garmin.com

Looking for Map upgrades for Garmin Nuvi GPS


I'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.

I have got a garmin nuvi 300 and want update the maps can anyone help please


Go to https://my.garmin.com/maps/checkPlugin_updates.htm and download the map install application. Follow all the onscreen instructions and connect the GPS to your computer when told to do so. You will now be able to purchase the new maps. If you have never updated your maps before Garmin usually lets you have a free map upgrade for the first time. You will also need to register your GPS with Garmin to get the free upgrade.

Thanks for using Fixya. Hope this works. Let me know if you have any problems.
