Connect your satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com. You need to register the satnav before you can update it. When you register you'll have to select a username and password. Write them down as you'll need them each time you need an update. After you have registered click on My Garmin, then My Maps. If there's an update available it will be shown in my maps. Click on Get Update and follow the instructions. You'll need a credit card to pay for it, it costs approx 80 Euros

Do you need to update the gps at all


The only thing you need to do (maybe) is to update the maps. make sure its maps cover the region where you will be traveling, otherwise it won't be of any help. Since roads do change over the years it is possible that your map may be inaccurate somewhere. If you are unlucky to find yourself in such an area, an old-fashioned road atlas or an area map might come in handy.

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!

My gsp only has a sd card no usb slot so how do i transfer the update to my gps Thanks


Depending on the type of GPS you have, you have a few options...

If the update instructs you to put the update files on the SD card, you need a means for your computer to access the SD card. This can be done by using an USB SD card reader, which can be picked up at your local electronics, digital photography store or online.

If you have another device that allows the transfer of data between a computer and the device (and it uses SD cards), you can put the SD card for you GPS into your other device, connect it to the computer through USB, and transfer the update files. For example, if your digital camera uses an SD card, you could put the GPS SD card into the camera, and then connect the camera to the computer.

Make sure you're updating correctly - sometimes the update is a file you run on your PC that in turn transfers files through a different means onto the GPS. Read the manual for your GPS for more information regarding transferring files onto the GPS and updating.

I want to register my GPS Nuvi 255 WT that I bought at Christmas time, I havent used the unit yet. I didnt get any updates yet. What do I need to do? Thank you


Right now your unit will work right out of the box. If you want to register the unit with Garmin, then there should be a card inside, or directions for online registration. As for updates, maps will be updated every year, with firmware updates periodically added. For the first 5 years of owning your gps, I wouldn't recommend paying the map update fee, as they often contain very little new information. They mainly encompass new developments, etc.Lastly, be sure to enjoy your Garmin, its one of the best car gps devices on the market.

Waiting for valid GPS signal


When was the last time you updated the QuickFix of your TomTom? It helps your GPS to find the satellites.
Please, do the following:
1) Install "TomTom Home" software in your computer from www.tomtom.com
2) Start TomTom Home in your computer
3) Plug in the GPS dock to your computer's USB port and place the GPS on the dock. The green light on the bottom right of the GPS should turn ON to indicate that the GPS is getting power from the dock and charging
4) Start your GPS while being in the dock. If the GPS asks "do you want to connect to computer" answer "YES"
5) The TomTom Home software will detect the GPS and check if there are any updates for it. Then you'll be offered updates to install. Some are free, some are not. Be sure you choose to update "QuickFix".

Please, report back if you need further assistance

Hi there I do have a question about my Gps, when I am going somethere I put adress in , but navigation says to me A GPS- signal is not available now.Navigation will start automaticalli when signal is...


im not sure if you were allready moving when this happened, but that is very common if you just turned the unit on, because it takes time for the satellites to locate and lock on to you when you first start the gps if it was totally turned off (sleep mode is another story)

if you lost the satellites while in the middle of your trip, that could of been caused by a few different reasons ,in between tall buildings,your gps might need updated, some windsheilds block gps reception to the point they can lock on to the satillites.

if the problem is persistent and your sure the unit was locked on to the satillites and you were in a relatively open area, i would try an update if it continues.

if you need help locating a update, just let me know. i would recommend updating it if its never been updated. bill
