To update your Garmin satnav you go to www.garmin.com If you haven't already registered it you'll need to do so. You'll be asked to select a username and password. Write them down and keep them safe as you'll need them again if you want to update again. You'll need to connect the satnav to the computer. When you've registered you'll be able to log into My Garmin. Click on My Maps. If there's an update for your map it'll be shown there otherwise it'll say no update available. Click on Get Update and you'll be led through the process. It costs about 80 euros for a one off update or you can get a lifetime, that is lifetime of the satnav, update which costs around 130 euros. On the other hand if you know somewhere close to where the street is you want to go to you could enter it as an address and have a look on the map. If you can see where you want to go to you can move the map around by dragging it with your finger. Then press where you want to go and the arrow will move to there. You can then save that location in favourites by pressing Save and give it a name. I hope this is some help.

I was just given the Garmin 255W as a Christmas gift.Can you purchase the lifetime maps or do you have to pay for each update after the 60 day free update is over.


There are no lifetime maps for your Garmin nuvi. Garmin updates their maps over time, so there are no lifetime maps available for the device. There are free maps and you can buy maps from Garmins website.

Details on how to update your garmin nuvi satnav are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
If the map is only 6 months old updating it might or might not solve the problem unless these are recent changes to the roads in your area. Map errors should be reported to Navteq, who make the maps for garmin satnavs at http://mapreporter.navteq.com/ . While this won't solve your problem for your trip at least if you find an unmapped change to the road and have to divert the satnav will pick up your change and redirect you.

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

You can update the software at no charge from Garmin. Get a mini USB cable, connect the Nuvi to your PC, go to Garmin.com.
The software updates are free, maps cost!

Garmin c330 will not acknowledge our home address


if you have a laptop take it outdoors and reload the software while sitting in your car at your home, as the software loads it also checks for nearest satellite...I did have this same problem. It took me 9 hrs. to reload the software while I was outside...I ran an extension cord to my laptop.
