SOURCE: LG LN740 maps way out of date. Can't find any upgrades/updates any where.

Contact LG directly. I live in Canada and called LG Canada who advised me that they had a few 2008 map updates in stock. For some reason neither they nor Navteq advertises the availability. This is not good customer service.

SOURCE: LG satnav

I wouldn't bother if I were you. Halfords gave me a number to
phone which was for the company who provide maps for the
LG. Sorry to say I have forgotten the name of the company
and don't have the phone number.

The reason for saying that is the person I spoke to said it cost
£85 + P&P,not worth it when a new one costs the same or
just a little bit more

Hope that helps you decide.

Need software update

Usually you have to go to the manufacture web site and support or downloads, download most current maps save on computer and use that file to load on device. Some may charge for this upgrade. Follow their instructions for installing the new software.

Why is the update for the Garmin Nuvi 200 $70 on Garmin's website? Shouldn't these updates cost less if I am downloading directly from their website? Is there a free version anywhere?

Map updates are not free. It takes time and money for Garmin to research the new roads, POIs, routes etc.

Software updates ARE free. If you are looking to update the unit's software - download Garmins WEBUPDATER, and after you install it from that link, and plug in your device - your PC will recognize/check and update (if necessary) to the newest version every time.

Maps are written with proprietary software and not available anywhere for a free download.

It won't accept the address I'm going to only part of the house numbers

Some GPS maps have incomplete records of the the numbers of the streets. In other words, let's say you're looking for 732 Main Street. The GPS map may only have Main Street number houses up to 500 and it will not allow you to enter any higher house number. This is fairly common with many GPS, regardless of make.

Your best options are:
1) Set up the address you are going to the closest one that your GPS will allow. In the above example, set the GPS to take you to 500 Main Street. You'll be about 2 blocks from your destination, so you should be able to find your destination without any problems.

2) If your GPS map is more than 3 years old, you MAY benefit from an updated map, but as I mentioned above, this type of errors is relatively common with most GPS and updating to a newer map many not solve the problem.

Hope this helps. If it doesn, please report back so that I can be of further assistance.

Is there an update for the LG LN735 if so how can I download it

Called LG to get the update. There is a 2008 version available. Problem is you have to order it from them and the cost is $99 plus $15 for shipping and taxes. The LN735 isn't even worth that much anymore, it won't cost much more to upgrade to a newer GPS.
