How do you download latest maps for free as i have been told it is possible ? Thanks...


It's only free to download the latest maps if a new map comes out within 60 days of your satnav first accessing satellites or if you have a satnav that comes with lifetime maps. However you can buy lifetime maps. The lifetime map of Europe costs €85 and you get updates every 4 months or so for the lifetime of the satnav.

No mapdate available


Map updates become available every 3 to 4 months for garmin satnavs. If when you log in to myGarmin and click on the myMaps tab you see a message "No updates available" it's because you have the latest map. When a new version is released it will change to "Get Update"

Where can i download the philippines map for my garmin nuvi 255W, including street map?


You need to have your satnav registered with garmin. Log into myGarmin and click on the myMaps tab at the top of the screen. If you don't already have a map of the Philippines click on "buy more maps" and follow the prompts. If you already have a map that you just want to update you can get details of how to update it at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
You can also get details there of how to register your satnav with garmin if you haven't already done so.

Please note that if this is not an update it's unlikely that your nuvi 255W will have enough space to hold a second map. If you're not updating or replacing a map I would advise against buying it as a second map. It is possible to install a second map to a memory card but there is a risk that it may not work. Memory cards in garmin satnavs appear to be very hit and miss. Some work and others don't for no aparent reason.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 610, and the cable from it to my car lighter point, to charge the GPS is lost. Where can I buy one back and how much is it? Please help. Is there a latest map for Sing/Mal for this...


These chargers are available at most places that sell garmin satnavs. If you want to get one online there's one at http://www.amazon.com/Charger-Power-Adapter-Cord-Garmin/dp/B001N8HLSW
for $14.99.
To see if there's a map you need to register your satnav with www.garmin.com. When registered log into myGarmin and click on the myMaps tab. There you will see if there's a map update, if you already have a map of the area. If not click on "Buy more maps" and browse to the one you want.

HI, I have a Garmin Nuvi 200W. Do you get frre map upgrades? Where do I go and how do I go about to update the maps? It has never been updated in about 4 years.


The only time Garmin give free maps is if a new map comes out within 60 days of you first connecting to satellites with your satnav. If you have it for four years I'm afraid you'll have to pay for the upgrade. Details of how to update your garmin nuvi satnav are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

I recently purchased a Garmin nuvi(r) 1310(T) from Halfords in Manchester and was advised to get a "free" update after registering my unit, as it could be 1-2 years old. On checking there were no "free"...


If a new map becomes available within 60 days of the satnav first receiving a satellite signal you get it free. If you only got the satnav there may not be an update at the moment. While the satnav may have been a while in the shop Halfords keep the maps up to date. Even if there was not a free update available myMaps in myGarmin should show if there's an update which could be paid for available. If it says no update available you probably have the latest version. A new map normally comes out in November though the dates vary. Keep a check by logging into myGarmin and checking on myMaps. When the new map becomes available it should show up there. It will let you know if it's free or not.

If you want to check what year the map on your satnav is:
Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol)
Press SETTINGS (or LOCALE if your satnav doesn't have a settings icon)
Press MAPS
Press MAP INFO at the bottom of the map page

This will show what map you have and the year of the map. If your map is the latest version it would explain why there's no updates

I purchase the lifetime updates for my Nuvi 200W GPS and now it will not allow me to download any updates on to it due to not enough memory. What can I do. I am pretty upset because I spent the money for...


Unfortunately the garmin 200W, like most of the garmin satnavs, doesn't have much storage space so you should be given the option to download part of the map only to your satnav. To get the full map the only option is to download the map to your computer. When you go to download the map from the garmin website select OPTIONS. In the options menu select download to computer. This installs a program called Mapinstall on your computer which contains the map. If you need to use more of the map you can then either replace the part installed on your satnav by running the mapinstall program from your computer or install it to an SD card. Note however that while garmin say that nuvi satnavs support SD cards up to 16 Gb some cards don't seem to work in them. Before spending all the time it takes to put your map on the card test it in your satnav first by putting music or pictures on it to see if it works

I've bought a Garmin Nuvi 215w. The gps does not display all the road names on the map. Is there any way i can update the firmware?


I don't think updating the firmware will solve the problem however if you want to try you can update the firmware by connecting your satnav to the computer and downloading webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 When you have it set up it will automatically check for the latest version of software for your satnav. I don't think that will solve your problem though. The satnav will only show road names that are on the map.

Before trying to update the software try this solution first. On the satnav press Tools, then Settings, then Map. Under Map Detail press whatever it says and you'll get a list of options. Press Most. This will show the most map details and will show any roadnames that are on the map.
