Free map updates for Garmin c330


Garmin has released new maps. Most of their units are entitled to a free update if the unit was purchased recently Just a heads up to anyone who recently purchased a C330. According to Garmin's tech support, the map udate 2008 is not free to those of us that recently purchased a C330. Only to those who purchased a C340 and up. Their excuse is that it is a "low end" unit, and also that the memory cannot hold the full US maps on the DVD. Gee, I can purchase the update for $69.99 and load a subset of the maps if I want, according to the person in tech support, but I cannot receive it as a free update. So, apparently buyer beware if you purchase Garmin's "low end" units. You will apparently not be able to receive a free update of maps, even if the unit you buy is already out of date.

How to add a map to a streetpilot c330 without SD-card slot?


Hi there,

hopefully your garmin would have come with a USB cable to connect up to your computer, on most devices today this would be the same port that is used for charging the device at home.

Then if you head over to this link (Garmin website) https://my.garmin.com/maps/checkPlugin_updates.htm?
I assume you have a windows PC, here but tell me otherwise.
You'll need to install the plugin which allows garmin to communicate with you device (to find out what model you have, and the current maps stored, as well as what new maps you would require)

If you don't have the USB cable, there is the option to also enter the serial number of your device, likely to be in small print on the back of device somewhere.

Garmin 330 GPS using abroad


In order to use the C330 in foreign countries, you need to purchase the maps for those countries and insert the SD card into your unit. You will then have to select the proper maps to use on the unit. These maps are available for purchase at www.garmin.com.

As far as getting around closed roads, your unit will automatically recalculate your route if you are unable to take the suggested route. You can purchase updated maps, but I do not believe this will help you will roads closed for repair.

CHANGE MAPS


If the unit can use an SD card, you can order the maps from Garmin on the SD card. You just have to plug in the card, and select it.

Some of these models with the fixed map have them burned in, and they cannot be changed or upgraded.

Garmin c330 update


What are you trying to update, firmware or maps? Firmware updates ae free from Garmin. Just go to www.garmin.com and download the WebUpdater. If you are trying to update the maps, these are available for purchase in CD or SD card formats, also from Garmin or your local retailer. They should be approx. $70.

Putting maps on sd memory card


(Untried)
For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.

Must have:
1 - Street pilot C330

2 - 512mb SD card
3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice)
4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America

What to DO:

1 - connect the GPS to the computer
2 - Insert the Map update disk
3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States
(Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)

4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"

5 - Open the folder called "img"

6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)

7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"

8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)

9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)

10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)

11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.

12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.

When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.
