    The L100 isn't a Garmin, though (or is it?) A label on my device sayshttp://www.smar2go.com/register but that forwards you to Nokia's European website.

How do i update map and software data online for my trax 430


Hello.

HOW TO UPGRAGE SOFTWARE ONLINE

If you are used to using an atlas or other map, you probablyalready know that new maps are issued each year because of changes on theroads. The same thing applies to the maps on GPS units. This means that if youhave a GPS unit, you need to update your GPS software regularly to make surethat you have the latest information. Each GPS manufacturer makes softwareupgrades available for GPS unit owners. Here are tools and instruction below
USB cable (as tool)
1 Visit the website forthe manufacturer of your GPS unit, such as Garmin or Magellan.
2 Go to the"Support" section of the site and then the "Downloads"area. This is where the latest upgrades are available for download.
3 Log in if you already havean account or key in the serial number of your GPS unit. Typically you get onefree upgrade on your unit, which is tracked by the serial number, which is whyyou have to enter it or have an account.
4 View the latest softwareupdates once you are logged in or have entered in the serial number. If you areeligible for the free upgrade, you will see it listed with no cost. If not, youwill see a price listed by the upgrade. Prices vary by manufacturer andupgrade, but average around $80 as of 2010.
5 Download the upgrade to yourcomputer or order the upgrade disk. According to CC Electronics & Gadgets,there is no difference between the two upgrade files. If you want to do animmediate update to the unit, you should download the upgrade instead of waitingfor the disk to arrive by mail.
6 Connect your GPS unit toyour computer with the USB cable that came packaged with it. When you do, theGPS update software will launch on your computer. If you have never installedthe GPS software onto your computer, you will need to use the disk that camewith the unit to install it so that it will launch for you.
7 Confirm that you want tosync the unit with the upgrade file that you download, or on the disk if youare using a disk. This will install the upgrade to your GPS unit. When itcompletes, you will get a message on your screen letting you know that it isdone. You can now disconnect the GPS from the computer. Thanks

Map update


Nextar does not provide map updates due to the cost.

New units are released with the most up - to - date maps at the time of manufacture.

They offer an exchange upgrade for the same price as a map update would cost you.

My Tom Tom is two years old and I was told that I should upgrade the maps each year. How do I go about doing that?


The Tomtom map updates are available by subscription from www.Tomtom.com Under most conditions it is not really necessary to update every year. The updates run about $40 per year. The best option on most of the small GPS units under $100 is to use it for 2-3 years and then just sell the older one and buy a new unit. The reason I say this is because the map updates only update the maps not the features or the software. The newer units will have new features and options for the same price as you would get with buying a map update your the older unit.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

How do I update my maps? I have my usb port plugged.It says follow PC appliction for updating maps and or software. Thanks Virginia Smith


If i remember right Magellan uses an auto updater, you will have to go to the website and download the auto updater or the latest software for your unit. The rest should be fairly easy, if it is a software upgrade without the auto update make sure the unit is plugged into a usb port then hit the something.exe file and it will take it from there. If it is an auto updater then install it onto your computer plug in the usb connector to the unit and let the software do it's thing. Hope this helps

How do i update maps on my model c330 purchased in2006


The only way is to purchase them is directly from Garmin.

Being that you have not updated the maps you will pay a penalty as they want people to update each year that a update becomes available.

Updates will probably run you $99 to $150 based on your software being 2-3 updates behind.

Being that the unit is 3-4 years old, I would not recommend investing $100 to update the software.

Vast improvements have been made to screen image quality, touch screen input technology as well as to the GPS receiver itself. Improvements to receiver sensitivity and "text to speech" technology alone merit an upgrade. I would instead recommend shopping around for a new unit as there are some incredible deals out there.

Magellan makes a roadmate 1430 or 1470 with nice large touch screens that run under $150. Garmin has a few models in that price range as well, try to get something with a 4.3" or larger touchscreen.

Hope that helps

How to update gps finedrive 400


one solution is to visit C&C wireless and pay over $100 for a map update or even send them your unit for even more $. see http://www.finedrive-acc.com/shop.cart?action=ITEM&prod_id=F400-08CP

The other solution was to send it to Fine Digital but they closed their doors in the US so they no longer support us customers. Because of this I made a DVD with map data I purchased from them before they closed and I added much better instructions; this DVD updates the firmware in the unit and loads the last map data issued to the SD card. you would need a PC with a DVD drive and SD card reader to use it. you can find these DVDs on ebay for $18 which basically covers my costs only.
