Hi my name tony i need to update my maps on my garmin 310


Garmin offers two kinds of updates on its website: software updates are free. Map updates are not. You'll need a USB cable to connect the Garmin to your computer. Then go to http://www.garmin.com
On the web site, first register your product. Then look for "Support" and follow their instructions for updating your software. After you've done that, look for "Maps" on the menu at the top of the screen. You can either purchase updates one at a time, or buy a lifetime (of your device) subscription. By the way, maps are huge files, so plan on it taking several hours to update your maps even with a fast internet connection.

How do i update my garmin nuvi 250? it tells me it needs to be updated.


Garmin is telling you to update your Map, its wants you to buy a New Map which cost around 50 or 60 dollars.....your unit will work find for now unless you need the new map 2011 it just has the newer streets and highways. Anything over 2 years old should have a newer Map..

With the gps Off

plug in your gps to your computer using a USB cable (most cameras connect to your computer with the same usb cable)

your computer with detect new hardware ( usb ) a pop up box will come up, minimise it

next

go to www.MyGarmin.com the Garmin site will detect your pluged-in unit and let your update your Map

It will say to download WebUpDater utility to transfer your map to your gps

Make sure you register your unit with Garmin at that time

Can u tell me how to download free up dated maps for my garmin nuvi 660 thanks vicki


Hi Vicki, unless your nuvi was first activated and acquired satellite lock in the last 60 days (unlikely as yours was discontinued a long while ago) then you cannot get free map updates, sorry.

For models activated within the last 60 days Garmin offer a free update to the latest maps if the maps already on the product when it was purchased are an older version. After that, all updats must be paid for.

You simply won't find free map updates legally. Accurate maps cost a fortune to produce and update so nobody gives them away, even the few illegal downloads tend not to work and if they do work are likely to be out of date anyway.

The way that Garmin price their map updates, it's often better to simply buy a new Garmin with the maps pre-installed, although I appreciate that's not the answer you hoped for. If you do buy Garmin updates then you can either go for a one-off update, or for additional cost can buy a lifetime update, but it's limited to the lifetime of the device which is only designed to last three years anyway so may be poor value if you buy the lifetime update and your machine then dies of wear or old age.

HOW DO I UPDATE MY NEXTAR X3I FOR NEW MAPS


Hi,

If I understood the issue correct you are trying to update the MAPS for your nextar x31 gps devise. Normally these map up dates are usually fee based, as the software is third party. So as the updates are made available, the manufacturers of the GPS devices buy the maps and post them on their websites as available for purchase, or provide the link to the map providers site.The down load procedures are available at the site at the same time.

Most sites will ask for model and serial number, if for some reason you are entitled to a free upgrade this is when you would find out.

Hope this helps

God Bless

Tomtomo onexl for free map


Hi,
Sorry to tell you that but you are dreaming if you think you can get free maps!!!!!.....i did too!, unless you get a boot image (or backup image) of another device...updated of course and load it on your device. TomTom is one of the rare site where you don`t have to fight or struggle to get map updates (unlike MIO which barely provide support) but you have to spend $
, i did buy a one year update service at about 50$, it is fast easy and....stress free especially if you need your device for your work.

2009 map update not loading


Does it recognise the Nuvi? Are you connecting it through a usb Hub. Are the drivers for the nuvi installed properly? Usually there is a folder named USB, thats where the correct drivers reside, and that's where you tell the computer to look when it asks for the drivers.
