    Sadly your unit has been discontinued. I am not as familiar with your product as I am with the Nuvi line and others. I withdraw and wish you the best. Maybe some other FixYa guy will get you going.
    Best of luck with it.

How do i update map and software data online for my trax 430


Hello.

HOW TO UPGRAGE SOFTWARE ONLINE

If you are used to using an atlas or other map, you probablyalready know that new maps are issued each year because of changes on theroads. The same thing applies to the maps on GPS units. This means that if youhave a GPS unit, you need to update your GPS software regularly to make surethat you have the latest information. Each GPS manufacturer makes softwareupgrades available for GPS unit owners. Here are tools and instruction below
USB cable (as tool)
1 Visit the website forthe manufacturer of your GPS unit, such as Garmin or Magellan.
2 Go to the"Support" section of the site and then the "Downloads"area. This is where the latest upgrades are available for download.
3 Log in if you already havean account or key in the serial number of your GPS unit. Typically you get onefree upgrade on your unit, which is tracked by the serial number, which is whyyou have to enter it or have an account.
4 View the latest softwareupdates once you are logged in or have entered in the serial number. If you areeligible for the free upgrade, you will see it listed with no cost. If not, youwill see a price listed by the upgrade. Prices vary by manufacturer andupgrade, but average around $80 as of 2010.
5 Download the upgrade to yourcomputer or order the upgrade disk. According to CC Electronics & Gadgets,there is no difference between the two upgrade files. If you want to do animmediate update to the unit, you should download the upgrade instead of waitingfor the disk to arrive by mail.
6 Connect your GPS unit toyour computer with the USB cable that came packaged with it. When you do, theGPS update software will launch on your computer. If you have never installedthe GPS software onto your computer, you will need to use the disk that camewith the unit to install it so that it will launch for you.
7 Confirm that you want tosync the unit with the upgrade file that you download, or on the disk if youare using a disk. This will install the upgrade to your GPS unit. When itcompletes, you will get a message on your screen letting you know that it isdone. You can now disconnect the GPS from the computer. Thanks

How to update map


I helped a buddy update his Uniden GPS (Trax350). Simply follow these steps and you should be done.

Uniden's MapTrax350 GPS device accepts voice-command programming and provides detailed audio commands, as well, speaking aloud the map directions that are displayed on its screen. Keeping your Trax350's firmware updated is crucial to keeping it working correctly. Usually, you can go to a company's website and download the latest software, but with Uniden, you must register your product first to access the proper free upgrades. It takes minutes.

Instructions

things you'll need: USB cable

1 Navigate to the link in the Resources section and fill in the required fields. Click on "Register."
2 Turn on your device and connect it to the computer using its USB cable.
3 Log in to the site with the password that was sent to your email address after you registered the device.
4 Choose "Software Upgrades." Select the MapTrax350 device, and the latest firmware upgrade will appear. Click "Download."
5 Select "Save File" and choose a location on your computer to save it to. After it has downloaded, double-click the program icon, select "Run" and follow the prompts to update your Trax350.

Good luck!

I recommend attempting a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 885.
Then I would upgrade the system software to the latest version. This often brings back unresponsive Nuvis.

Perform the Hard Reset
  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  3. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
  4. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot.
Upgrade the System Software

The upgrade software is a download available from Garmin. Installation steps are detailed here.

I hope that helps.

Nuvi 250- goes to blank screen when u hit SPELL


Sounds like corrupted firmware. Go to www.garmin.com and download their webupdater. Run it and connect a USB cable between your Nuvi and the PC. Let the webupdater look to see if there are any firmware updates. If so, install them. If not, let it reflash your current version.

Where can I get the latest update or downloads for GPS Pioneer avic-s1


Yes I called the Canad number 1-877-283-5901 and they asked for 150 $ for this upgrade. Now a day, one can buy a cheaper new GPS in that amount. I am not going for this option.
