    Sorry but I just found this in my junk mail so thought you had not replied.I am still green with computers but it looks like on the web that downloading maps requires a DVD or you have to buy a preloaded one. Am I right?Can one buy a preloaded one at Best Buy?Thanks

Hello wshipton,

You can download the latest version of the software (v4.0, Dec 18, 2007) from HERE

For the latest maps, go HERE. You will have to enter your unit serial number to find available updates. (In case your GARMIN came with preloaded map data. If it didn't, you can try HERE.

However, these are not free, I'm afraid.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please take a moment to close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

    Hi,

    Just got a new update:
    You can get the latest updates for your Garmin 360 HERE.
    You will have to enter your unit number and the website will search for any available updates.
    However, if want a map that was not preloaded into your device, then you will have to pay for it.



    Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,
    please feel free to post them here.





    P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer
    I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa!

    If it hasn’t, please do not assign a rating just
    yet. Please post back as to what steps you took, results, etc, and I will try
    to assist you further as best I can. I am here at your service.

    Yes, I think you can buy one from BestBuy, But I reckon it will be best to order directly from the Garmin website.

    If you are not sure what to do after downloading the map, it is best to buy a preloaded disc or MMC card. It will be easier for you..

    If you didnt get a preloaded one, then chances are if you are still withn the warranty you can call your manufacturer but if not you can order it on website. or try loading the usb driver and emap from this site first so that you can directly hook it on your computer and install emap



    go to this link EMAP AND USB DRIVER

I an trying to register my nuvi 255w that i bought at canadian tier and get my update for it and i can not find out how to register it.my address is 88 woodstock drive,sherwood park,alberta canada,t8a4e2.


With the off, plug in your Nuvi to your computer using the supplied USB cable (you can also use a usb camera cord ).

The Unit will show a screen that your pluged in.

Now go to www.MyGarmin.com and register your unit. It then will give you the lastest updates.

Is it possible to get inland waterway maps (IRELAND)to suit nuvi


GPS City (http://www.gpscity.ca ) sells compatible Inland lake maps. Please note Garmin does not recommend them for that unit but I am sitting at my desk with one in my Nuvi 760 and it is working fine. You will need to turn off the street maps first to see the inland lake maps. I tested it with a Garmin Pre-programmed card for Alberta Canada.

Garmin GPS


The maps are third party, and updated annually.
there is a fee for the updates. go to www.garmin.com run through the registration process and it should indicate if there are updates for your model.

Hope this is of some help.

Garmin nuvi 360 wont unlock maps


Master reset is after you turn on the GPS put a finger on the left lower corner rightaway and then keep the finger there, wait until it shows up the "Do you really want to start up in maintainance mode"

You are not able to use others nuvi's map on your nuvi 360, as each map must match with the GPS unit ID, to find out your GPS's unit ID, go to "Setting" tab on "System", tab on " About"

Garmin nuvi 350; 360


The Nuvi 350 is the same for the most part no matter where you purchase it. The only things that can change on the unit are the pre-loaded maps (Europe if purchased there, US and Canada if purchased here) and the languages. The basic receiver is the same. You do have to be careful where you purchase it as theft is rampant, and purchasing from a retailer who is not authorized by Garmin will result in you not having the factory warranty.
