You'll need to install the software on your computer first. Then you will need to connect your Garmin with a USB cable just like you would a camera to upload pictures. The computer should find your GPS and finish the install and give you a choice to update your map database. This usually is a fee based update. Not too expensive and maybe you can purchase a lifetime update deal through e-bay or amazon etc. Good luck!

No map info on nuvi 205w


Plug your nuvi into your PC. Go to the Garmin.com website and log into your account to see your map information. You can go to your account and see the map downloads and reinstall it from there. Or you can download their software "Garmin Express" on your PC. Run the software while your Garmin is plugged into your PC and it will check for any updates for you.

I need my free map update that came with my nuvi 205w


Hey steven barber,

To update the garmin nuvi 205 for free, you'll first need to have your GPS, an USB cable and a computer. There are web sites that will allow you to down load an update to your GPS for free. Make sure the version you pick is compatible to your computer to download it. You'll want to plug the USB cable into both the GPS and the computer, to download the upgrade to your GPS.

Good Luck!

Can I update Garmin nuvi 205w UK and ROI with lifetime update maps?


Yes you can. You can find details of how to update the map at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

The only difference between doing a once off update and a lifetime update is that when you click on Get Update you get the option to select between a "Onetime" or a "Liftime" update. After the first time you download an update, on a lifetime update, each time you go to update it brings you straight to the download page when you click on "Get Update"

Note: Lifetime refers to the lifetime of your satnav not to your life.

Garmin 205 W has been discontinued and webupdater


I find that hard to be true. The manufactuer just came out with updates for the Nuvi 3xx and 6xx this month (Aug 09) and those models are older than your Nuvi 205W. When you mean updates are you referring to firmware or maps? Either way, even the discontinued models are still being supported with firmware & map updates.

If you are having trouble getting your unit updated, please let me know and I can help you with this.
