Here is a hint to check the map in your unit to see if they are the newer version.

Click on the Tools icon, then "Settings", next "Map", and last click on the Map Info button. Your map version is listed here. If it is not the same as the version of the update try running the update again.

How do i download maps on my nuvi


If you purchased the onetime or Lifetime map update just run Garmin Express, otherwise you may need to purchase those or plan on replacing the Garmin Device. If something happened to the original maps that were on there and you are too cheap to buy new ones, there is no way to load back on those old map files

I was on I-95 and my garmin told me take a left turn with no where to go. also I was going from Myrtle Beach to Wilmington and was told to go on 501 which is completely wrong direction


Hello,

This issue sounds like it could be solved with a Map + Firmware Update. To get you firmware updated is a free process all you have to do is navigate to this link and download Garmins WebUpdater Software. Updating your mapping is a diffrerent story, to obtain mapping for your nuvi there is 2 options 1. is a Onetime update via DVD for 49.99 or 2. is to purchase a Lifetime Mapping Update Subscription for the cost of 89.99. Ix would reccommend a Onetime Update for your unit being an older unit. All your GPS accessories can be obtained at www.gpscity.ca or www.gpscity.com.

Hope this helps!

Hi bought a secon hand Garmin Nuvi 360 and need to urgently update the maps. How do I do it?


Hello,

To get your maps updated there are two options, a onetime update via DVD this will bring your maps to the most current set. You can also purchase a lifetime subscription to the updates, this would be delivered via online download. If you are looking to keep the GPS for more than 2-3 years a subscription is the way to go, 89.99 allows you to download new content every 3 months where a onetime update goes for 54.99 and will only bring it to the current mapset. Either of these can be obtained from us at www.gpscity.ca or for US customers www.gpscity.com.

Hope this helps!

I cannot get any sense out of Garmin ref the following problem. I have downloaded to my computer the Maps Onetime info. The problem I have is how do I get that info / download into my Garmin nuvi...


I'm not sure what you mean by maps onetime info. If it's a map you downloaded to your computer you
  • Connect the satnav to your computer
  • Click the Start button on windows
  • Click Garmin
  • Click Map Install and follow the prompts
Note: It can take quite a while for the instal to start as the computer checks your satnav but don't interrupt it or you'll create major problems with your satnav. I hope this solves your problem
