Depending on the type of GPS you have, you have a few options...

If the update instructs you to put the update files on the SD card, you need a means for your computer to access the SD card. This can be done by using an USB SD card reader, which can be picked up at your local electronics, digital photography store or online.

If you have another device that allows the transfer of data between a computer and the device (and it uses SD cards), you can put the SD card for you GPS into your other device, connect it to the computer through USB, and transfer the update files. For example, if your digital camera uses an SD card, you could put the GPS SD card into the camera, and then connect the camera to the computer.

Make sure you're updating correctly - sometimes the update is a file you run on your PC that in turn transfers files through a different means onto the GPS. Read the manual for your GPS for more information regarding transferring files onto the GPS and updating.

Can I down load from my iPad onto my tomtom


No.
ipad does not have sdcard or micro-SD card slot to transfer to external device.

Verify what type of memory is used on your Tomtom Start 25.
Also verify the max capacity and speed supported.

Prefer a laptop with sdcard carrier with micro-SD to download and transfer file physically or download to pc and transfer via usb cable. See page 95 of the attached manual

Micro sd card wont click into place garmin nuvi 2589


On some units, they won't click. You slide the micro SD card into the slot and you will feel a slight resistance. Continue to slide the card in until it stops. It will only slide in one way. This is exactly how the micro SD card slides into a standard SD adapter. There is no click. If you connect the GPS to a PC using the USB data cable, your PC should recognize (2) memory devices; (1) The GPS and (2) the SD card. It may take a few moments. Wait a few minutes until you see both appear in Windows. Always select EJECT or SAFELY REMOVE before you remove the USB data cable.

How do I update my Nextar x3-08 gps so the new roads will show up ?


visit Nextar.com to order your desired maps update and Check the overview description to see which SD card lists your GPS model number and serial number. Order the matching card.

Remove the existing SD card. This is usually found in a thin, rectangular slot on the side of the Nextar GPS.

Insert the SD card with the maps update into the empty SD card slot. Press until it clicks into place.

Reset the unit by pressing the "Reset" or pushing a pin into the "Reset" hole.

Click the "Navigation" button to have the maps automatically update on the GPS.

How do I transfer pictures from my PantechP9050(sd card) to my laptop


Has your laptop a slot for the SD card? If it hasn't then get a SD to USB card convertor. You put the card into that and the USB into a USB slot and you computer will then read the SD card and you can transfer the files in the same way as any other drive.

My map is outdated, how can I get an uptodate map


Go to the website for your GPS provider. There should be the latest update for every model of the GSP you own. Download the update to your computer. Your GPS should have come with a cable to connect it to your computer (through a USB connection). Connect your GPS to the computer and open the update file. It should automatically begin transferring the information over to your GPS for update. If this does not work, I suggest contacting the GPS provider, as they may have a very specific update process that requires driving to one of their stores. If you need anything else, let me know!

Just bought a garmin nuvi 1450 gsp yesterday , and wish to get the updates, being not too familiar with downloads , can you help me ? Do I branch my garmin gsp to the computer or do I download the updates...


First make sure the unit is fully charged,then go to the Garmin site and register your product. Then download Garmin Updater and connect your unit with a usb cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

New purchased North america map.


I am assuming that, without being a GEEK, you are sufficiently proficient with a computer. I will describe the procedure with all the necessary details. I use Windows XP and all folders I refer to are in Windows OS hierarchy. I have tried all except starting from the SD card, I happen not to have a 2GB card ready.
I suggest you read the whole post, think about its feasability from your point of view, and proceed from there. If you have any misgivings about what I say, DO NOT DO IT. I shall NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR GPS.

First of all you should install the HOME application on your computer. Then you connect your GPS to the computer. When it asks you if you want to connect to the computer tap YES, and the HOME application will launch. You may let it perform an update (if any ) of the OS (application that manages the GPS). Do not let it make any update of the OLD map. On each screen you have a CANCEL button.

Use the TomTom Home Application to backup your device. The backup will be stored on your computer, and you will be able to restore it in case of a problems.

Disconnect your GPS and insert the SD Card in slot. Then connect the GPS to the computer and let it communicate with the HOME application.
When HOME launches it will show you the internal memory of the GPS and the SD card and you are asked to select from where to run the device. Select the external SD card.

If any thing goes wrong STOP.

In the main window of the HOME application use the right arrow to go to go to Backup and restore icon. Click the icon, HOME will restore the application and the old map, all that is on the internal memory.

If that does not work, I think you should copy the content of the backup folder \My Documents\TomTom\HOME\Backup\GO\Backup01 on the SD card. and try restarting the system from the external card.

What remains to be done is to look for the new map and put at the right place in the HOME folder.
Here I will show you the directory hierarchy in WindowsXP
On my computer the map is
\My Documents\TomTom\HOME\Download\complete\map
In this directory there is folder called North_America_2GB. It contains a 1kB activation Zip archive file, a 1.5GB map zip archive, a 6kB table of contents (. toc file) and two image files.

Once the application and the map are on the external SD card you should be able to start the device from the internal memory or the SD card. When you turn it on you will probably see two icons (one of the internal mempory and the other for the SD card) . They will be flashing for a short while. You have to tap the one that you want to start with.

What is sd card slot used for?


The sd card slot is used when you buy update maps.
It's easier to update directly from the website, but if for some reason you can't, you can buy the maps on a sd card or on a CD. Then transfer to the sd card and load it.

Questions about 1gig sd card


The way I do it is us an adapter that firs in your card slot on your computer. you can bring it us and show properties. It will tell yopu haw much info you have on your card. The other question. I have the whole city navigator on a 2GB card. It takes up about 1.6GB. So you will not be able to fit it all on a 1GB card.

Also, if you use the adapter it does not take as long to download the maps as it would if you went through your gsp.
