Question about Garmin Nuvi 200 200w 205 265wt

I was told by Garmin that I would have one free map update after purchasing the unit. We tried to download the update, but it did not take and would like to know how to re-try the down-load. Can you help me? My unit is 11 months old amd is a Garmin nuvi 265WT. Ken.

Yes, just redo the download. Be sure the unit is hooked up via USB and navigate to the Garmin site. The download and install take a REALLY LONG TIME. It is not grab a download and run. Up to hours...you just have to be patient.

Hers is a solutin to paying for Garmin updates. "Purchase a TomTom". I made the swith 10 months ago and by far the TomTom out does the Garmin Nuvi by leaps and bounds. I purchased my TomTom XL for $70.00 from Walmart and am very happy with the functionality and user friendly display. Anthony garrettx6@yahoo.com

I was on I-95 and my garmin told me take a left turn with no where to go. also I was going from Myrtle Beach to Wilmington and was told to go on 501 which is completely wrong direction


Hello,

This issue sounds like it could be solved with a Map + Firmware Update. To get you firmware updated is a free process all you have to do is navigate to this link and download Garmins WebUpdater Software. Updating your mapping is a diffrerent story, to obtain mapping for your nuvi there is 2 options 1. is a Onetime update via DVD for 49.99 or 2. is to purchase a Lifetime Mapping Update Subscription for the cost of 89.99. Ix would reccommend a Onetime Update for your unit being an older unit. All your GPS accessories can be obtained at www.gpscity.ca or www.gpscity.com.

Hope this helps!

New garmin - got latest updates from garmin loaded it then it says maps not unlocked?


Garmin only allows you one free update for your GPS as long as you download and install it within 60 days after you purchase your unit. If you have tried to download any updates after your 1 free update without paying the update fee you would get the error you have mentioned. If this is your first update, or you have paid for it, and you are getting the error, the map has become corrupted. You'll have to contact Garmin's support and they will have to supply you with a code to use to unlock the map.

How do you download updated maps to he garmin nuvi


You can purchase map updates from stores that sell the units, or new this year you can buy updates for the life of your unit from the Garmin website which cost $120. You can get up to 4 updates per year. If you wish you can just purchase a single update for $70.

http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/us/maps/numaps-lifetime

Also download the Garmin Webupdater software from the site which allows you to connect the Nuvi to your computer and will give you free software updates for the unit itself.

Free map updates for Garmin c330


Garmin has released new maps. Most of their units are entitled to a free update if the unit was purchased recently Just a heads up to anyone who recently purchased a C330. According to Garmin's tech support, the map udate 2008 is not free to those of us that recently purchased a C330. Only to those who purchased a C340 and up. Their excuse is that it is a "low end" unit, and also that the memory cannot hold the full US maps on the DVD. Gee, I can purchase the update for $69.99 and load a subset of the maps if I want, according to the person in tech support, but I cannot receive it as a free update. So, apparently buyer beware if you purchase Garmin's "low end" units. You will apparently not be able to receive a free update of maps, even if the unit you buy is already out of date.

I have got a garmin nuvi 300 and want update the maps can anyone help please


Go to https://my.garmin.com/maps/checkPlugin_updates.htm and download the map install application. Follow all the onscreen instructions and connect the GPS to your computer when told to do so. You will now be able to purchase the new maps. If you have never updated your maps before Garmin usually lets you have a free map upgrade for the first time. You will also need to register your GPS with Garmin to get the free upgrade.

Thanks for using Fixya. Hope this works. Let me know if you have any problems.

GPS MAP QUESTION


No, Garmin will not provide map updates for free. You can update the unit's firmware for free from Garmin's website, but if you need new maps you must purchase them and download them into the unit. It should not be necessary to do this right away, though. Even if the unit does not have 2008 maps on it, unless there are major changes to the areas you travel most, it should get you around fine until you do decide to purchase updates.

If you have downloaded the latest version of WebUpdater, you will be able to update the unit's firmware for free from Garmin. If you are looking to update the actual maps on the unit, map updates can be purchased in CD or SD card formats.

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.
