You paid for lifetime updates. In order to get the updates you have to have the Garmin plugin software installed on your computer. You can get it here. https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm? Pick your device and install the plugin. Connect your GPS and turn it on. Follow the instructions and it will tell you if you have an update.

    Good day,

    I have been looking around Garmin's Website and I did notice that somehow, their Lifetime Map update is not working.

    It is either, there are no updated maps available or there is a technical problem with their website.

    As much as I want to help you get your device updated, we need Garmins services to get your map updated. There is definitely no problem with your device and getting it updated.

    I suggest that you give Garmin a ring and confirm if there are updated maps. You can contact them in the number below.

    US: 913-397-8200
    Monday - Thursday: 8 AM - 6 PM, Friday 8 AM - 5 PM Central Time (closed holidays)

    Thank you for using FixYa.
