You need a Garmin USB data cable that you can buy at Best Buy,then connect GPS to your computer and go to garmin.com and download the newest maps for a fee.

The following data is more than a year old and should be updated


I own a Garmin also once a year you will get that message to updater your maps on your unit. If you go to www.garmin.com they will sell you the new CD's for your unit. The CD's you purchase will install on your computer first, then connect your unit to your computer to update your maps. The software pretty much walks you through it. I hope this helps you out and if so please leave me some feedback.

We are trying to download updates to our nuvi 250w. are there any updates for it. it is 3 years old.


I would suggest to update your maps every 2 years, it will then give you the new roads and highways... it will cost anywhere from 50 to 60 dollars... well worth it.

go to www.mygarmin.com

After downloading update on garmin site, my nuvi still says"more than one year old need to update". My Dashboard on garmin site say updated successful??


What did you update? The message you are getting refers to the maps. If you have not updated the maps in more than a year, you will continue to get that message. If you update the firmware, voices or anything else, it will NOT stop the message.

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"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

System software missing garmin 250w


If the unit indicates "software/firmware missing", then you can only try to re-install firmware by running WebUpdater again. If it doesn't work, then the unit has to be sent to service to have it re-flashed.
