You can purchase map updates on CD at your local GPS retailer. If you do not want to do this, go to www.garmin.com. Go to the tab at the top of the site that says "Products". It will drop a menu. Click on, "On the Road". On the next page, click, "Automotive." Since the Nuvi 250W is discontinued, click that on the left side of the page. Then scroll to the Nuvi 250W and click it. Click the "Map" tab and then click on "View map updates for this product." Then click on the appropriate update.

Gps need to be updated but don't know how to update it


Depending on the model, you may or may not have free map updates. You will need to connect your GPS to your computer and log into Garmin. You will need to down load Garmin Express from the Garmin web site. Once the software is installed, it will either find your gps, or tell you connect your gps to your computer. After that, just follow the screen prompts.

I don't know how to register my new Garmin nuvi so we can receive the free map updates when our machine is turned on


If the unit is new you get a free map update within the first few months after that they will charge a fee, but you can still update the unit for software and fixes.
Here is what you need to do to update the map your Garmi nuvi; first make sure the unit is fully charged, then go to the Garmin web site and register your product. Next download Garmin Updater and connect your nuvi with a USB cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. When done follow the instructions on your screen. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

My Garmin nuvi does not show rerouting of roads.


a map update "may or may not" fix the problem, because it depends on the date of the map updates and when the construction took place.

you can go HERE and download and install the web updater and follow the instructions.

it will tell you if there is an update for your maps

let me know if you need further help

How do I update my street piolet c-340?


If you are referring to firmware updates and you have downloaded Garmin's Web Updater, just plug the unit into the computer. The Web Updater will connect online and let you know if there are available updates. If you are referring to map updates, it is up to you when to update the maps, but new maps are usually available for purchase each year. You don't have to update them that often, though.

Hello mjs91411,

The Garmin maps updates page appears to be down at the time this is being posted, but the page to get updates for your GPS is https://my.garmin.com/maps/updates.htm.

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

Best regards,
Ken
