SOURCE: LG LN740 maps way out of date. Can't find any upgrades/updates any where.

Contact LG directly. I live in Canada and called LG Canada who advised me that they had a few 2008 map updates in stock. For some reason neither they nor Navteq advertises the availability. This is not good customer service.

Dear Fuckyou837,

While we have been called worse and for better reasons, your rant is misdirected. FixYa is a help site. The Experts that volunteer their services here provide solutions to problems concerning a vast array of products.

Fixya is not in any sort of partnership agreement with the manufacturers of the products we provide these Free services for. And are certainly without affiliation to LG or any or their resellers.

I can understand the frustration caused by a malfunctioning or defection device. That is the reason this site exists, to help owners of these devices find solutions to these problems.

To sum up, the beautifully worded love letter you posted was not delivered to those who you believe to be the source of your frustration, but to an army of volunteer technicians of exceptional talent who were waiting to help someone out for free, Well done.

I don't know what the exchange rate in negative Karma points for that one is, but I'm pretty sure you won't have to wait in line for them.

If you'd like to post your problem, I'm sure there a few that would still provide you with help. But either lose the attitude or subtract 837 from your name.

Have a great day,
Mike

Hi, hav a garmin nuvi. Has Garmap Africa series 2008 March edition. Is it possible to update the SD card via a free download. Tnx


For maps that came with a Garmin GPS - a map can be updated for free within 60 days after purchase. The purchase date is recorded after registering the device at MyGarmin.com or when the GPS detects movement above a certain speed. If the GPS is purchased with lifetime updates - it will be free throughout the lifetime of the Garmin GPS.

Just see what happens when registering the device at MyGarmin.com. A map update will show when there's one available for your Map version.

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!

Product nuvi 200w/ powering up the device, all that is displayed is a small picture of a gps connected to a pc via usb cord. Have the update card for last year. A message displayed recently that map was...


The reason that the picture of the gps connected to a pc is shown is because the mini usb plug is not pushed in fully into the back of the satnav. This is a common problem with the 200w as it feels like the plug is fully in when it's not.
When the map is on the satnav for a year it displays the message that it's out of date. It can be updated again at www.garmin.com but if it was updated last year it may not be worth the cost of updating it again as there will be few changes. Generally I update mine every 2 years.

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.

TomTom has merged with Tele Atlas so that's a no go on the NAVTEQ maps. Newly built roads may not immediately show up on your TomTom, but you can definitely try upgrading your maps and using the Map Share feature to keep your maps as up to date as possible
