It all depends when you brought the unit if they will update the map for free if not you have to pay for the updated map, it cost around 50 or 60 dollars

to update .... with unit off

Using the USB cord connect your gps to your computer

your computer will detect new hardware USB

now go to

the site will also detect your model and let you know if updates are available

if there are updates it will tell you to download WebUpdater utility to transfer map to your unit

I have a Garmin nuvi 1300. Recently i update the firmware, the routing direction keep on showing some path that passing housing area and very difficult to drive though. At the setting is usual like last...

Updating your firmware will not correct that problem. I think your maps may be out of date and does not know what to do. I don't know how long you have had your unit but if its under a year old Im pretty sure your entitled to free updates for your maps. If it over a year old then you need to go to and purchase new updated maps.

I hope this helps you out if it does please click YES on the web page that you are receiving this response on. Thank you

I update my motherboard bios then restart. CPU fan running but monitor still black no display.. i try clear the bios bu t still dosen`t work.. what should i do?

You need to flash your bios to an earlier version and see if that fixes the problem. What may have happened is you might have updated it to a version not supported by some or all of your hardware, I recommend putting it back to the factory default BIOS.

Will not plot route in mexico

I assume it works ok in the U.S., and most of Mexico. Assuming that, it will be one of two things. 1. Either the locations are not programmed into their software, or you need an update to your GPS. My guess is that they haven't updated yet. I would message Tom Tom to let them know your concerns- sometimes the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Good luck, know it's aggravating.
