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.

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

Recommend putting your money in a smartphone. There are free tools like Googlemaps which work can give the latest maps. Spending $69 is ridiculous.

First you have to set up an account at Garmin using the serial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmware update for free.
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"

I would like to up date the lateest maps for my c550


Maps are available for purchase either at Garmin's web site, or from your local GPS retailer. Garmin now offers a lifetime map update for one price, which allows you up to 4 map updates per year.
