If you are referring to updating the firmware, you should go to Garmin's website, www.garmin.com and download the WebUpdater software first. Once that is installed, plug your unit into your computer and then run the software.

I need my free map update that came with my nuvi 205w


Hey steven barber,

To update the garmin nuvi 205 for free, you'll first need to have your GPS, an USB cable and a computer. There are web sites that will allow you to down load an update to your GPS for free. Make sure the version you pick is compatible to your computer to download it. You'll want to plug the USB cable into both the GPS and the computer, to download the upgrade to your GPS.


Check this link out for the Garmin myDashboard for your GPS

Good Luck!

Hello wallbridge,
To update your garmin nuvi is free. All you need to do is to first downlad the webupdater on to a PC then you go to the webupdater software on your pc and then you connect your garmin nuvi to the PC.
Select the updates of your choice, whether the map updates or software update. It will bring up the latest update for you. Then you select the update and it will be installed on your garmin nuvi for you.
You cn download the webupdater from the garmin nuvi website. www.garmin.com
Or you can go to www.garmin.com, when the page is fully loaded, go the the support link, a slide will pop out, then you select what you want to update there, either the maps or software, then follow the rest of the instructions from there.
Would be glad to know if this information helped you. All the best. Elect_Comp

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.

Is there a free update for the garmin nuvi 200?


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Sorry, no free maps. I know I've tried. You either live with the old map or but the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOUR Garmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:
