Free update my gps nuvi 255/1bv655463


Hello,

If you are looking for map upgrades there are a couple options.
One is to purchase the update on DVD then load it to the unit.
Two Purchase a Lifetime Subscription to mapping which would allow you to update the GPS every 3 months.
You can also obtain a onetime update VIA download on Garmin.com.
For best prices check www.gpscity.com

How can I get a free update for my Garmin Nuvi 255? I tried the Garmin website but I had to pay for an update.


The only time you get a free update is if a new map comes out within 60 days of your satnav first accessing satellites. If you're paying for updates you can pay for a once off or for a lifetime update. With the lifetime update you pay once, 85 euros for the map of Europe, and you get maps every 3 months or so.

Hello.
You can try the nüMaps Guarantee. It will give you free map update for 60 days after registering your unit.
Check it out here.
Now, you can get map updates from Garmin only as there are no longer free maps except if offered.

Need free updates for garmin 255


You can go to Garmin's website and use their free web uploader to update the firmware of your GPS for free. You just need the usb cable that came with your gps to connect it to your pc. That is for the formware only, updated maps can only be bought from Garmin.

How do we update our garmin nuvi 255


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} You can get that FREE at Garmin here:


To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
First you have to set up an account at Garmin using the serial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmware update for free.
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.

By the way, the correct Garmin approved power OR download cables are a must!!
Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

I just purchased a Garmin nuvi 255, and the maps are inaccurate.


Just go to http://www.garmin.com There will be a registeration link. Yes I think that you will get a free mapupdate with your registeration at least they used to do that. You will need your unit serial number and model.
