I had to exchange my last satnav as it wasn't working. I have a 'lifetime map upgrade' & am unsure how to download it onto my new one!


If you had a lifetime map upgrade for the old satnav I'm afraid it died with the satnav. Lifetime in this case refers to the lifetime of the satnav. Unless the new satnav came with a lifetime map upgrade also you'll either have to buy one or get the shop where you exchanged the satnav to pay for one. You can get details of how to update your maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

Garmin maps show Vale Ave, Ferndale,Gauteng, South Africa incorrectly. I run a guest house. guest arrive here irate because your map does not show Vale ave where it is. Coming from malibongwe down Oxford...


Navteq make the maps for garmin, and many other, satnavs. You can report map errors to them at http://mapreporter.navteq.com/?app.basemap=jsl and they will correct it. It may take a few months to appear on satnavs as it's a long process but I have reported errors and changes in the past and they were corrected in periods of 6 months to 1 year.

Hello how can I update my Carmin nuvi 660 and download the map of new zealand ? thank you


Details of how to update your garmin satnav are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

To get a new map of NZ you need to have your satnav registered. Details of how to do so are at the above link also. When you're registered go to www.garmin.com
  • Click on the myGarmin tab
  • Log in using your username and password
  • Click on the myMaps tab
There you'll see the map installed on your satnav. On the left hand side of the screen you'll see in blue writing a link saying "Shop for new maps" and then on "View additional maps for this product"

Scroll down as far as the map of NZ and select it. Follow the prompts.
If the map you already have on your satnav is not NZ and you want to save that too it's unlikely that both will fit on your satnav. If this is the case follow the instructions, at the above link, under the heading If the map is too large to install on your satnav for downloading to your computer and installing from your computer to your memory card rather than the satnav. Be advised maps installed on memory cards will not always work on garmin nuvi satnavs particularly if the memory card is larger than 2 Gb. Please read the article at the link above before buying.

How long does it take for new roads to appear on updates/downloads?


Navteq, who make the maps for Garmin and many other satnav makers, updates maps every 3 months or so. If they have been told of a new road it will generally appear on the next update unless it's reported too close to the release date. While most new roads are reported to them by the authorities you can report them yourself if you think it should have appeared on the maps by now.

If you want to report a new road or a map error you can do so at http://mapreporter.navteq.com/
There's a guide on how to do this on the left hand side of the site which can be downloaded.

Yes, Garmin satnavs use Navteq maps. Go to www.Navteq.com and there's a link there called Map Reporter where they take reports of map changes. I have reported several in the past and eventually they all appeared on map updates.

Got a free download to my computer. will I be charged when I connect by usb to upload


If a new map update comes out within 60 days of you first using your garmin satnav you get a free update. No charge when you connect by usb to upload so if the garmin website said it was free you can take it that it is. If you have to pay for a map update it won't let you download the map until after you have paid.

On the screen of my satnav it says i need to upgrade because it is more than a year old , my satnav is a garmin nuvi 200


No, Your Garmin 200W is simply informing you that a update to 2010 is avalable, simply by a date code. Depending on your area you msy have new listings in your area, Coffee shops, ATM, & Hotel listings and new roads & extits
Your current map 2008 will still work just as it did. You can update your maps to the 2010 currently out from Gamins web site, I think the cost is right at $75 per unit
