Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
Goodluck!

SOURCE: Free map updates

Unfortunately, they don't offer free map updates. You can purchase map updates for around $70, but they won't update them for free.

Also, the base model of the C330 does not have enough memory to store the entire 2008 Map Update. Unless you have more memory than it came with stock, you may have to choose which maps to include. For instance, in North America you have to choose between US and Canada - there's insufficient memory to hold both.

SOURCE: update 2009 maps into c340 how to

The Garmin Streetpilot C340 is discontinued, so there isn't much support for it. You can find some updates at
https://buy.garmin.com/shop/store/downloadsUpdates.jsp?product=010-00401-20&cID=164&pID=290

But no free map updates.

SOURCE: need free updates for my garmin nuvi 200

You didn't say how long you've had your device, but if you haven't registered your device at Garmin.com yet, go do that and they will then offer you a free upgrade.

Other than that, I don't think you'll find anything free. The next best thing is to buy the "nüMaps Lifetime™". I felt this was the best deal they have.

SOURCE: Is there any free map updates for the garmin nuvi?

Asmany as there are FREE dinners Updates are not free, unless you paid full price for it when you bought it. Free upgrades are a deceptive myth. If you get a free uograde its usually minor and was included in the price of the pack.

I was just given the Garmin 255W as a Christmas gift.Can you purchase the lifetime maps or do you have to pay for each update after the 60 day free update is over.


There are no lifetime maps for your Garmin nuvi. Garmin updates their maps over time, so there are no lifetime maps available for the device. There are free maps and you can buy maps from Garmins website.

How can i update maps on my garmin nuvi 370 that i bought about 3 years back??


You can purchase map updates online from Garmin. Here's the link I use: https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm

You'll need to connect your Garmin to your computer with a USB cable. Then go to the Garmin web site and follow their directions. You can buy a single update, or buy a "lifetime" (of the device) subscription to map updates.

Can u tell me how to download free up dated maps for my garmin nuvi 660 thanks vicki


Hi Vicki, unless your nuvi was first activated and acquired satellite lock in the last 60 days (unlikely as yours was discontinued a long while ago) then you cannot get free map updates, sorry.

For models activated within the last 60 days Garmin offer a free update to the latest maps if the maps already on the product when it was purchased are an older version. After that, all updats must be paid for.

You simply won't find free map updates legally. Accurate maps cost a fortune to produce and update so nobody gives them away, even the few illegal downloads tend not to work and if they do work are likely to be out of date anyway.

The way that Garmin price their map updates, it's often better to simply buy a new Garmin with the maps pre-installed, although I appreciate that's not the answer you hoped for. If you do buy Garmin updates then you can either go for a one-off update, or for additional cost can buy a lifetime update, but it's limited to the lifetime of the device which is only designed to last three years anyway so may be poor value if you buy the lifetime update and your machine then dies of wear or old age.

What do i need to update my garmin


Do you mean the software or the maps? For a software update use Garmin WebUpdater:https://buy.garmin.com/shop/store/downloadsUpdates.jsp?product=010-00656-10&cID=164&pID=37414 For map updates see Garmin's website, they usually charge map updates.

Free map updates garmin nuvi 250


Recommend putting your money in a smartphone. There are free tools like Googlemaps which work can give the latest maps. Spending $69 is ridiculous.

Free map updates for Garmin c330


Garmin has released new maps. Most of their units are entitled to a free update if the unit was purchased recently Just a heads up to anyone who recently purchased a C330. According to Garmin's tech support, the map udate 2008 is not free to those of us that recently purchased a C330. Only to those who purchased a C340 and up. Their excuse is that it is a "low end" unit, and also that the memory cannot hold the full US maps on the DVD. Gee, I can purchase the update for $69.99 and load a subset of the maps if I want, according to the person in tech support, but I cannot receive it as a free update. So, apparently buyer beware if you purchase Garmin's "low end" units. You will apparently not be able to receive a free update of maps, even if the unit you buy is already out of date.
