When i type in an address it says no matches found. do i need to update my maps?


With Garmin it is best to purchase the lifetime updates for just a little extra cost. Maps are updated about every 4 months or so. I check mine about every 4 to 6 months.

The address has to be exactly as Garmin knows it. Often it is better to input the post code and house/business number.

Help me update my 1 year old 255w


Have a look at the same map update problem I answered about a month ago, here on FixYa.

You can update the firmware by downloading and installing Garmin's WebUpdater.

If this was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" - Thanks!

I have a Garmin nuvi 1300. Recently i update the firmware, the routing direction keep on showing some path that passing housing area and very difficult to drive though. At the setting is usual like last...


Updating your firmware will not correct that problem. I think your maps may be out of date and does not know what to do. I don't know how long you have had your unit but if its under a year old Im pretty sure your entitled to free updates for your maps. If it over a year old then you need to go to www.garmin.com and purchase new updated maps.

I hope this helps you out if it does please click YES on the web page that you are receiving this response on. Thank you

I have a Garmin Nuvi 265WT about a year old. Do I need up[dates and are these free, please?


If it's working alright and you're happy with the map there's no need to update it. New maps are released approximately every 3 months for Garmin satnavs but unless there are a lot of new roads there's no need to update that often. Details on how to update your satnav, if you want to, are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

Garmin only supply free updates if a new map became available within 60 days of the first time your satnav accessed satellites. If you never checked to see if you were entitled to a free update follow the update procedure outlined at the above link. When you click on Get Update, if you are entitled to it free you'll be brought to the download page. If you're not entitled to it free you'll be brought to the page where you pay for it.

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...


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.

I had a Magellan before and it has a ding when I approached the street to turn. This was very helpful since I often drive by myself and can't always see the street sign. I got a Garmin (1490) and it does...


Garmin recently introduced this feature in its software updates. I downloaded the update to my nuvi 660 (several years old) last month and it started doing the "ding" which I agree, is most helpful.

Go to www.garmin.com and register your device. You'll be prompted to connect the device via USB and the online garmin updater will step you through updating your device's software.

The start up sez I need updates I have a garmin 225w nuvi premium bundle but I don't want to pay for it, this thing was $$$$. Who knows how to update for free?


There re no such thing as free updates. Garmin have always overcharged for their maps. Sell It and buy a cheaper GPS is about your only option if you can't afford the maps. Besides 3.5 GPS are now too old for most map companies to support. Start looking for a 4.5 or 7.0" GPS with new ,maps cheaper than an upgrade

I HAVE A GARMIN NUVI 200 AND IT NEEDS TO HAVE THE MAPS UPDATED. IT IS 18 MONTHS OLD AND I CAN'T FIND A FREE DOWNLOAD FOR IT.


Map updates are free for units which are recently sold with the older maps and the new maps have been published, ie you just bought a unit in 2009 which still had 2008 maps on it after the 2009 maps had been released. Rather than recall all the units from the store shelves, they offer free updates on the mapping software. Continually updating the maps on 18 month old units is not free, there is an update charge. What is free from Garmin is the unit's software. Hope this clarifies your assumption.

Garmin 205 W has been discontinued and webupdater


I find that hard to be true. The manufactuer just came out with updates for the Nuvi 3xx and 6xx this month (Aug 09) and those models are older than your Nuvi 205W. When you mean updates are you referring to firmware or maps? Either way, even the discontinued models are still being supported with firmware & map updates.

If you are having trouble getting your unit updated, please let me know and I can help you with this.
