The download did not go correctly. You have a unit that is
missing or has incomplete files. Contact Rand Support and they will send you an
update card. It will not delete your user data and it will upgrade you to the
current version and with new maps. Be sure to have the serial number off the
back of the TND (bottom right) handy.Thanks Mark, Rand Lead Beta Tester

I have lost all my maps on m garmin nuvi 880. When I select one of my favorites it displays route calculation error. no roads near starting point. Also the display screen does not show any...


Try connecting it to your computer via a USB cable. Then log on to Garmin's webiste and download a map update. Then you can put the map update on your GPS to replace the ones you lost. All Garmin customers get one free map update. After than it's about $40-$60 dollars for an update.

I want to update my new garmin nuvi 245 where du I go?


Goto garmin website.
Download web updater
Run this program and then connect the gps, it will then show what updates are available (not maps)
for maps your device needs to be registered on garmin website and it will then show you what maps you can buy for your device.

HOW DO I UPDATE THE 1412


To update your magellan roadmate is very simple. But take note, there are two (2) types of updates:
  1. Software update, which are free.
  2. Maps update, but you have to purchase them.
Either ways you will get both updates from the support link from th magellan website. For software update:
  1. first go to the website, www.magellangps.com,
  2. Place the cursor on the support link and a list will pop out,
  3. From the list select manuals and softwares,
  4. Select the manuals and software link that is on the page,
  5. You select the vehicle navigation form the list,
  6. Once you select the type some other pages come up then you select the road mate,
  7. Once you select the road mate, a list comes up, then you select the road mate 1412,
  8. Then the download link will pop up, then you click on the link to download it.
  9. Once you download it, connect your gps to the computer, then you update it from there.
Sometimes, the moment you have the magellan roadmate software on your computer, as soon as there is a latest update, it will notify you to download it for your gps update.
To update a map,
  1. You purchase the maps once they are available from magellan website,
  2. go to the website as stated above,
  3. place the cursor on the maps ans a list will come out,
  4. Select either vehicle navigation maps or outdoor maps depending on what you want to update,
  5. Then you select the product type and the product model
  6. A page will pop up with the latest map for you to download.
  7. Then you add to cart.
That way your maps will be updated.
I hope this information helped.

How long does it take for new roads to appear on updates/downloads?


Navteq, who make the maps for Garmin and many other satnav makers, updates maps every 3 months or so. If they have been told of a new road it will generally appear on the next update unless it's reported too close to the release date. While most new roads are reported to them by the authorities you can report them yourself if you think it should have appeared on the maps by now.

If you want to report a new road or a map error you can do so at http://mapreporter.navteq.com/
There's a guide on how to do this on the left hand side of the site which can be downloaded.

I've bought a Garmin Nuvi 215w. The gps does not display all the road names on the map. Is there any way i can update the firmware?


I don't think updating the firmware will solve the problem however if you want to try you can update the firmware by connecting your satnav to the computer and downloading webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 When you have it set up it will automatically check for the latest version of software for your satnav. I don't think that will solve your problem though. The satnav will only show road names that are on the map.

Before trying to update the software try this solution first. On the satnav press Tools, then Settings, then Map. Under Map Detail press whatever it says and you'll get a list of options. Press Most. This will show the most map details and will show any roadnames that are on the map.

I have a nuvi 200 and I live in Jacksonville FL there are many new roads, new highways and I drive a lot and want to update my GPS so I dont come to a lot of dead ends. What do I do?


You can update the maps using either Garmin or other third party maps. The accuracy will depend on how old the mapping data was that is used to create the map. So you want to find out if the map in that area is recently updated. You may also find that a regional map may show the details in some areas where a larger map won't.

To upgrade using Garmin you just go to garmins website

http://www8.garmin.com/updatemaps/

You may find the map update is free or you may update for a fee or get a lifetime update subscription. The gps is hooked up through the usb cable and will download and instal the updates. It's painless (sort of ;-]) and quick.

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

Have you updated the software since you purchased the unit? If not, go to Garmin's site, download WebUpdater and check to see if there is an update to the unit's software. If so, download this and see if it helps. If not, try downloading the same version of the software again. This might help also.
