Basically, you have no options unless you purchase or borrow accessories.

You're going to need the connection leads to make any software or firmware updates as there's no other way to get them from a host pc to your satnav.

I suggest that you visit the Garmin website to see what leads you need (and to download any software) and then check out the likes of eBay or Amazon as the leads are often cheaper elsewhere.

Please take a moment to rate my reply.

How does one update th gps?


You connect the 2720 to your pc with the supplied usb cable.
Power up the 2720 with the ac supply cable.
Then run the garmin webupdater. It will do the update.

You must have previously installed the webupdater and the usb drivers. If you use the garmin mapsource software and can connect to the 2720, to transfer waypoints, tracks, etc., then the usb drivers are already installed.

You can download the webupdater at this site:
http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Hope this helps.
