Question about Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

We purchased a Garmin StreetPilot 550 3 years ago. I need to update maps. I took it back to The Source where we bought it and figured since we had an extended warrenty that they would be installing the map for us. The Source told us that we do this ourselves over the internet, but I cannot figure out how to do that. Can you help? Anne

How do I update the maps on my garmin i3 streetpilot? is there a free download?


Garmin allows you one free update for your maps as long as you do it within 60 days of your day of purchase. You have to download it with your computer and then use the USB cable that should have come with your receiver to transfer the update to your GPS. After the initial free update the charge is $100.00 per year or $200.00 for lifetime updates.

I would like to up date the lateest maps for my c550


Maps are available for purchase either at Garmin's web site, or from your local GPS retailer. Garmin now offers a lifetime map update for one price, which allows you up to 4 map updates per year.

Maps Still Not Updated?


You are confusing map updates with POIs (Points of Interest). Garmin does not keep up with restaurant openings and closings, to the best of my knowledge. Updating your maps will give you the latest street information (such as new subdevelopments, one-way streets, newly opened bridges, etc.) but will not let you know that the KFC closed or that the Chalet de Alpina closed last year. Your POI information is current as of the initial programming of your unit. You can enter POIs manually, if you chose to do so, but they will only be good as long as you keep up with them.

Free updates or downloads for a garmin streetpilot c330


There are no free map updates for the StreetPilot Series.

The newer models do come with a free update that must be downloaded within 60 days of purchasing the system.

There are utilities for adding POI (Points of Interest) as well as Browser plugins that can be used to add Favourite Locations from Google maps. these updates are available from the garmin website.

Unlock Code


When updating the maps, you need to be registered with Garmin. All the numbers came with the unit. If you turn over your Garmin 2720, there will be a number flanked by "*". That is your unit ID. When you register, you must provide that ID. From the site, you can update your maps and you shouldn't need the 25digit key. It's programmed into your unit.
