    Hello again, I think it's different if I'm using a mac as I can't find an application to open the download!
    Any suggestions? Thanks, Coryph.

    Thanks. I'm going for something to eat now and hopefully a translation through a pc will work. I don't have access to a pc here so I may be in touch again if that's OK? Cheers Coryph.

Hi,

Here is a link to the update maps site. Garmin has a couple different ways to update. A one time or a lifetime. There are different costs for the plans. The website is very easy to navigate, once you get in you will need to register and the purchase the update plan you want. Let me know if you have questions.

This should be what you need...and usually upgrades and firmware downloads from manufacturer should be their obligation and free..My advice is ...if it works ...don't fix it ..cause there are a lot of things that can go wrong ...but if you really want to ..or something feels odd and you think that it will work better ..,than read carefully and download and install..

My Garmin Nuvi's touch screen does not work? I cannot get any directions.


If under warranty, click "Contact Support" via their website and arrange for replacement. You may or may not get your particular GPS returned (as described below).

If out of warranty, you can determine the flat rate repair on Garmin's "Out of Warranty" page. If you decide that the price shown when you select your model is the route to pursue, you need to understand a couple of things. 1) You will not get your GPS back. You will be getting a GPS that was repaired already and is waiting to be sent to an owner with a problem GPS. Your personal data will be lost - since you're getting a different GPS. You might also want to delete this info before sending the GPS in - so that if by some reason it isn't deleted - no one will have it. 2) the cost of the repair includes the latest map updates - this is a $79 value alone for many of the Navteq map products.

Example: My nuvi 760 has a flat rate repair of $99. The maps on it are 2 years old. For the cost of a map update, I get the map update and a new (to me - but actually is a "factory refurbished nuvi 760) GPS.

You can also make the repairs for some models yourself with parts and instructions on the ebay / internet (the examples given are the first ones I saw - had you included your model, I'd have provided links for it instead).

I hope this helps & good luck!

Hello there,
Updating the garmin nuvi 205w is quite simple. All you need to do is to connect the device to the computer that you have the garmin nuvi software on,then you go to the website www.garmin.com then you select support, a list will pop up, with the information update the software, then you back up the software that is on it, then you update the OS to the latest version, then you wait for it to update. When you are through with updating the software, disconnect the device from the omputer and power it on.

Garmin Nuvi will not respond, to touch of screen and screen indicates that map needs to be updated. What do I do to get it to function again


You need to plug in your Nuvi into your computer, once connected go to www.MyGarmin.com

It will then seek your Nuvi model and ask if you like to update maps or update firmware.

I would update firmware first.

Love my Nuvi 760

You may benefit by going to Garmin's WebUpdater page to download & install updated firmware on your nuvi 760. It's free and all you need is a computer with a USB port and a USB cable that fits your nuvi 760 (it was included the box) The directions are clear and it is very easy to do.

Good luck!

Are there free road info download available


No. If you want usefully updated maps, then you have to pay for them. Garmin do offer a "lifetime" maps subscription, but it's only for the lifetime of your product: given that most Garmin SatNav units don't last long enough to benefit from more than a couple of years worth of updates it's usually cheaper to buy the single update option, although the lifetime subscription gives you four updates per year and one-off is just a single annual update.

If your unit also needs updated traffic and camera alerts then it can be cheaper to buy a new satnav.
