In order to update your Garmin Nuvi 205W's system version, you'll need to download software which checks your unit's current version and updates it to the latest version. The current version available is 2.9.1.0 as of December, 2009. Garmin makes it easy by installing a browser plugin instead of having to install a software package. The WebUpdater plugin can be downloaded here:
http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

In order to install the plugin you must first agree to the license agreement. You will then need to close all of your open browsers that are open on your computer to finish the install. Once you have, the plugin will start to install. To finish the system update, Garmin lists several steps on a page;

  • Disconnect your 205W from your laptop or desktop and let it restart
  • Once you see the main screen, you can connect it back to your computer and wait 30 seconds.
  • On the next screen, click the 'Find Devices' button and then click the 'Next' button.
Once your computer finds your 205W and you initiate the update, the plugin will install the new system to your unit.

Hope helps.

How can i tell what year maps are on my garmin 760


Goto menu and information and maps.
it will tell you the map version, though map date is about a year ahead of real date.
if it says 2010 it could be a 2009 map.

How do i up date the maps garman nuvi 200w/250w


The Garmin GPS are among the easiest to use and they have the most complete mapping on the market. To update the mapping, there are several versions of the software integrated into these road gps. To name a few, city navigator version 8 and City Navigator 2008. With a newer version, you have the most recently built streets, new shops, new parking lots, etc.. To update, there are several ways to proceed. First, before you update your maps, I recommend you check if there is a newer version of the maps, visit garmin and download the plugin. You can also view the maps version directly on your gps.

Up date maps


To update maps you should run Tom Tom home on your computer and then connect the GPS

It will then ask you if you want to connect to the computer and you would tell your GPS yes.

Tom Tom home will once it finds your GPS then proceed to do any minor updates.

If your map is out of date it will offer you the option of purchasing a newer version.

don't be tempted to look for free / pirate maps !
These can cause problems in starting up your GPS (believe me)

Tom Tom map prices are not too bad and compared to many GPS are quite easy to install using Tom Tom home.

If you don't have Tom Tom home the latest version can be found here.

Up date of road maps


Reinstall TomTom Home and make sure you update your drivers if asked to do so. You also may want to download maps directly from TomTom's map store - http://www.tomtom.com/products/maps/select.php
