If you are referring to firmware updates and you have downloaded Garmin's Web Updater, just plug the unit into the computer. The Web Updater will connect online and let you know if there are available updates. If you are referring to map updates, it is up to you when to update the maps, but new maps are usually available for purchase each year. You don't have to update them that often, though.

I want to have my new tom tom to say street names when giving direstions


Not all sound files speak out the street names. If you would like to have the street names spoken, you need to select a voice that ends with computer. For example, the voice file selection: Simon, English UK, Computer will speak street names. But the voice file, Bonnie, English US, will not speak Street names. Dave, English US, computer will give you street names but Lori or Mandy, English US will not.Procedure to get the street names spoken: Tap on main screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on arrow. Tap on change voices. Tap (select) a voice that ends with computer. Tap select. Tap done till you reach the main screen.

No street names spoken


Have you selected an electronic voice? If you have a "standard" voice or have used a "celebrity" download voice, it won't give computed responses for street names.
Go to voices, change voice and try a digital/electronic voice. If not installed, use TomTom home to download an electronic voice.
Hope this helps

You need to use a "Computer" Voice I believe Susan is the female option and Richard is the male option. Only the computer voices can read street names.

I won this GPS and it is telling me that it needs up dates how do I get the updates and do they cost


The updates it is referring to are the NAVTEQ database updates. This is the turn by turn street mapping and an update is available every year. You can purchase updates from the Lowrance accessories website http://www.lei-extras.com/store/search.asp?SearchType=Unit&Unit=iWAY+350C. The part number for this update is 95-63.

But you don't NEED this update. It costs $74.99 and may not even include updated street information for where you are. I would use it as is and if you think the street mapping is too behind, take the $74.99 and put it into a new Automotive GPS...you can get really good ones for under $100 now.

I do recommend installing the latest firmware update for the iWay 350 from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Automotive/iWAY-350C/Downloads/iWAY-350C-Software-Update/.

Need a map-street update


All that is necessary to do is to connect to the Garmin web site at http://www.garmin.com and register your GPS on their site. After you are properly registered then all you will need to do is go to the support tab and then you can update your map. Let us know if you have any problems.

Thanks for using Fixya.com

No signal


Turn the unit off

Pry off the silver faceplate and locate the reset button underneath

Hold the reset button down for 30 seconds then turn on the GPS while holding the button down.

Once the GPS screen activates you can release the reset button.

If this doesn't solve the problem your next step would be to download the latest software update from this link: www.garmin.com

NEED TO UP DATE MY STREET PIOLET


To update your street pilot maps you need to purchase software from Garmin or an authorized distributor. To install the software you will need a PC with an internet connection.

If you are in the US, look up Yachting Enterprises under GPS in the service directory. They sell the software and they can also install it for you.

Add in dead-end streets?


You can add in a mapful of congestion/construction warnings for the existing map, using a CF card and some street & map program. Just use a generic prefix for the congestion so you can tell it's your note.

You should definitely send feedback to Garmin about how the streets end (maybe linking to a Flickr group full of pictures of how the streets are not passable,) so that they can update their maps. Speaking of that, you can also check that you have the current 'firmware' (and maps) for your city with their update tools.

What city did they not get good satellite photos of? Lucerne?
