To update to the latest requires buying a map update. Too expensive in my book. Garmin does have a POI loader utility that you can get at their site. Various web sites have POI listings that can then be installed. You can also find individual POI listings for such things as all Walmarts at a company's web site.

Tried shutting it off. It won't shut off or anything else. Has a picture of the Garmin logo on the screen as well as a picture of a computer. It's a Garmin Nuvi 1450


Hi, A soft reset will preserve your Home, Favorites, POis, etc.or just remove the battery. Leave the battery in the unit. Hold down on the lower right of the screen while holding down on the power button. After 20-30 seconds, you should see the Garmin splash screen. Have your PC/laptop ready with USB cable. Get the latest Map update downloaded and installed or just start using the unit again. i hope this will be very helpfull to you. please don't don't forget to vote me Good Luck

I have a Garmin Nuvi 1450 - it will just shut off by itself even when charged and / or plugged in. Please help!


I had the same issue on my 1450 except it just would not power on anymore, even with a full charge. A soft reset will preserve your Home, Favorites, POis, etc. Leave the battery in the unit. Hold down on the lower right of the screen while holding down on the power button. After 20-30 seconds, you should see the Garmin splash screen. Have your PC/laptop ready with USB cable. Get the latest Map update downloaded and installed or just start using the unit again.

How can I update my garmin 255w for free?


Garman gives you one free update for maps - if you download them within 30 days. Otherwise you have to pay.
To find out what you need. Use the usb cord provided with the unit and plug it into your pc. Go online to the GARMIN website and download the manager. From there it is just follow the prompts. You might Email and ask GARMIN to give you one free update for maps? The firmware updates and other updates such as POI are free.

Why is the update for the Garmin Nuvi 200 $70 on Garmin's website? Shouldn't these updates cost less if I am downloading directly from their website? Is there a free version anywhere?


Map updates are not free. It takes time and money for Garmin to research the new roads, POIs, routes etc.

Software updates ARE free. If you are looking to update the unit's software - download Garmins WEBUPDATER, and after you install it from that link, and plug in your device - your PC will recognize/check and update (if necessary) to the newest version every time.

Maps are written with proprietary software and not available anywhere for a free download.

I'm trying to the free update to my garmin nuvi 310/360'. I've had it a few years and never updated yet. It's not listed in the mandatory software update list. thanks

I know I've tried. You either live with the old map or buy the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOUR Garmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

Hi It is more important to know how to add POIs. Here is a simple tip: 

1. Create some directory especially for download. I use the following one: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM 

2. Download and save all CSV and BMP files to that directory. You may create any subdirectory and use it to save POIs for that category. 
I use: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Restaurants, C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Petrol etc. 

3. Garmin's POI Loader will find all files in these subfolders and will use them to create a category. 
Garmin POI Loader will search through the directory C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM and will create/transfer all corresponding POIs to your connected GPS. 

4. You can remove any POI file simply by removing it from your POI folder. and re-running the POI Loader software. This POI update procedure takes about 1-2 minutes. 

In summary, keep your POI files updated on your PC and run POI Loader to update your GPS or SD card via any SD card reader. 

Cheers
