With your unit off

connect your gps to your computer using a usb cable......( same usb cable most cameras use to connect to a computer )

your computer will detect new hardware ( usb ) minimise the pop up box

next

go to www.MyGarmin.com this site will detect your unit and have you register your gps to unlock map or update map and firmware

you will have to download there WebUpDater utility to transfer the files to your gps

How do i get free update maps for my garmin nuvi 260w car gps


've looked for free map upgrades for my Garmin and could not find anything. I did find a lifetime map upgrade deal for around $75. It allows you unlimited upgrades for as long as you own the GPS. Go to the garmin site and search NUMaps.
Go to the Garmin web site & register and that will allow you to upgrade the maps to current. You will also need to use a USB cable and install the software for your Garmin before you can do so.

How can i update maps on my garmin nuvi 370 that i bought about 3 years back??


You can purchase map updates online from Garmin. Here's the link I use: https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm

You'll need to connect your Garmin to your computer with a USB cable. Then go to the Garmin web site and follow their directions. You can buy a single update, or buy a "lifetime" (of the device) subscription to map updates.

After downloading update on garmin site, my nuvi still says"more than one year old need to update". My Dashboard on garmin site say updated successful??


What did you update? The message you are getting refers to the maps. If you have not updated the maps in more than a year, you will continue to get that message. If you update the firmware, voices or anything else, it will NOT stop the message.

Hi ive a garmin 200w and it tells me to get mapupdates,can you tell me how i do this and how much it will cost me,thanks


You can get map updates from www.garmin.com You'll have to register your satnav at that site first if you haven't already done so. When registering you'll be asked to select a username and password. Be sure to write them down and keep them in a safe place as you'll need them again if you ever need to update again. There are 2 options for updating. You can get a once off update which costs approx 80 euros or a lifetime update, for approx 130 euros, which allows you to update your maps up to 4 times a year for the lifetime of the satnav. You'll need a credit card to pay. Updates are large, 4 Gb for Europe, so you'll need broadband to download them. If you don't have broadband you can get them sent by DVD. Hope this answers your questions.

Need to update the maps


Garmin Sat Navs do this when the map is one year old. It can be updated by going to the Garmin website www.garmin.com. Connect your Satnav to your pc and register it if you have not already. The site will lead you to your update which can be downloaded if you have broadband or posted on DVD if you prefer. It is expensive so you need to consider if it's worth updating or not.
