Re: how do I update my street piolet c-340?
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.

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.
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
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/.
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.
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?
