How do i upgrade my navman sat nav with new roads and it used to warn me when speed cameras were present but does not now


Map updates are usually NOT free. Some manufacturers allow for a "one time update" within 30 days of purchase - to ensure the owner of the latest maps. Other than that, there are three models out there.

One is a the purchase of individual map sets for the geographical area of interest for a modest fee. nearly all manufacturers offer this type of update. In return, a disk containing a program to update the maps in the GPS is run on your computer while the GPS is connected via USB cable or serial cable. You might even end up maps preloaded on a removable memory card. Simply inserting the card into the slot on some GPS units will allow the the GPS to use the new maps on the card instead of those installed on the internal memory of the GPS (if the memory card is removed, the GPS uses the old internal maps).

The second model is a map subscription service (Garmin and a few others) that allows for the download of new mapsets as they become available (2 or more times per year) to your computer. This is done on older models (those sold before lifetime maps were offered) or if it is determined that buying updates one at a time will be too costly, after purchasing the GPS. Running the download with the GPS connected to the computer will update the internal maps of the GPS - just like the disk method. The subscription service costs more than buying a single update disk, but is often less than the cost of 2 update purchases. The subscription lasts a predetermined amount of time, or in many cases, "for the life of the GPS".

The last is similar to the subscription method above, only that you purchase the GPS with lifetime map subscription built in to the cost of the GPS. Included in the GPS package are instructions on how to go about starting the subscription and installing the maps - the same instructions are included with the purchase of a subscription after purchasing the GPS.

One place that sells maps for the Navman brand GPS can be found at http://www.activegps.co.uk/navman-maps.htm You may also find them available for sale in retail outlets that sell the Navman GPS devices, too.

Speed or "Safety" cameras and Red Light Camera locations are often offered as a subscription, due to the not necessarily permanent placement of these devices. Some manufacturers offer this, while others do not. Third party providers have stepped up to fill the void created by those that do not offer this information. I found these sites that have this data available:

http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/uksafetycameras-navman.php
http://www.speedcamerasuk.com/speed-camera-database.htm

There may be others that cost less or are even free. Keep in mind that maintaining this database can be difficult, so the free databases are more likely to have erroneous information in them when compared to those databases that charge for access.

I hope this was a good starting pint for you and helped. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Just purchased TomTom XXL states that this device contains newest maps. Unfortunately it is not so. For example a roundabout in the vicinity of Empuriabrava, Spain, which exists more than three years is...


I Hate to tell you this but i have said this before and posted this before for people. Newest maps available mean just that. The problem is in the company that goes out and actually maps these roads, passages and speed limits.Tom Tom does NOT go out and map these roads and places, they buy the maps from another company (here in north America it is either Tele-Atlas or maybe Nav_tech, think there might be one other one) that company is responsible for map updates and other things, all TOM TOM does is put there version of How do i get from here to here on it and ship it out using the most recent maps that are available from whom ever they purchase the actual maps from.Hope this helps.

Hello mjs91411,

You can also sign into the My Garmin page at https://my.garmin.com.
