You will not pick them up....

New roads and subdivisions probably be on the next new map update, I believe they update anually..

Its a good idea to get new maps with in 2 years with a cost of around 50 or 60 dollars

GPS is prone to location errors caused by terrain or buildings but this is quite a large error!
It could be that you are not receiving enough satellites and you may need an external antenna on your car or reposition the receiver.
You should be getting at least 5 satellites with a good signal to get an accurate position

How do I get my GPS upgrade to in clude the new routes


unless you update maps on a regular basis (once a year or) new roads may not show on screen, the Map updates are not free,Garmin charges about $100 USD, the other issue is that not all the roads in the USA are in the software, so this can happen, the system is not perfect but it is good, just wanted you to knopw that Nextar doesn't have any updates, other do like Garmin and Tomtom.

Tomtom not getting a valid GPS signal. Not picking up any satelitte signals at all.And yes I am outside,and fully charged and keep getting a prompt waiting for a valid GPS Signal.Tomtom is 1 yearand 1...


This is a common issue with TomTom software in general!
To alleviate this issue, Tomtom has released QuickGPS add-on to locate satellites faster. If you have not got it loaded to your device, download the appropriate version of QuickGPS from the TomTom site and make sure you use TomTom Home (connected to the Web and your device) to update both your MAP and QuickGPS on a regular basis.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go and good luck!

Will not properly display rural areas near Greenwood,Nova Scotia ,Canada postal code b0p1n0


If you have the most updated maps installed the only other option I can tell you to try is making sure that all your avoidances are selected properly. Usually by default your avoidances are set so they don't recognize things like rural roads, toll roads, dirt/farm roads for fastest directions and speed. Look into this and see if your adviodances are turned on. If so then turn them off and see if your roads are there. If it doesn't work then you will need to connect your garmin to the PC and run an update to see if you have the latest map update.

Hope this helps

Does not show max speed allowed it is 6mths old


I have found that the maximum speed is not known for all roads so only the speed is displayed.

Where the max speed is known for a particular road it should always work for that road. If not then there could a problem with the GPS.

Map directions


TomTom has merged with Tele Atlas so that's a no go on the NAVTEQ maps. Newly built roads may not immediately show up on your TomTom, but you can definitely try upgrading your maps and using the Map Share feature to keep your maps as up to date as possible

I Would like to update my Garminc330. I have a glitch in the map (tells me address doesnot exist, when I know it does)


Garmin puts out map updates on a regular basis. You must purchase these. The GPS comes loaded with maps that are current as of the date of production of the unit. It cannot "know" when new roads are paved and new subdivision are created without being "told" via map updates. The unit knows where it is in relation to the maps loaded on it by receiving signals from the GPS satellites in orbit. If things change, the maps must be changed in order for the unit to give you correct directions.
