Is there free maps that you can download from the internet, or do you have to pay R350 every year to update you garmin.


There are no free maps. You can buy "lifetime map updates" which costs around 85 Euros. When you go to buy the update from the garmin website it gives you the option of a once off update or a lifetime update. If you buy the lifetime update you get to update your satnav 4 times each year for the lifetime of your satnav. Lifetime in this instance means the lifetime of your satnav not your lifetime.

Want to update maps on my 660 garmin with my numaps Lifetime


You can get details of how to update your maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
When you're updating you get the option to select onetime or lifetime updates. Note that lifetime refers to the lifetime of your satnav not your life. Also you should note that the average expected lifetime of a garmin satnav is 5 years so if yours is near that you should consider if it's worth the extra cost.

How often should you update or is it more practicle to just purchase a new garmin every couple years?


If you're happy with the satnav you have it's cheaper to update. You have the option of buying a once off map update or a lifetime update. That is for the lifetime of the satnav not your life. With a lifetime update, which costs around 120 euros, you get 4 updates each year. This is the cheapest option. However the only problem with this method is that the maps get bigger each time you update and the space on your satnav stays the same. I started off with a full map of Europe and now I'm only able to store Western Europe on my garmin nuvi 760. You can use memory cards to hold some of the map but older garmin satnavs have a problem recognising the maps on memory cards. If you need the full map you might be better buying a new satnav every few years. If you only use part of the map a lifetime update might be the best option.

If you decide to go for a new satnav I would suggest that you go for one with the biggest storage space possible and then get a lifetime update or get a model that comes with lifetime updates like the 3790LMT. You can judge the storage size by the amount of maps it comes with. The 3790 model has the complete USA + Canada and Mexico or the 2370LT comes with maps of Europe and USA, lifetime traffic updates but not lifetime maps.

How is my 205 updated? what do I need to do and how much does it cost ?


Hello,

Updates come at a cost, 54.95 to get the most current map set or 89.95 for a lifetime subscription to map updates. The lifetime subscription is the more economic way to go saving 20$ by the second year. You are eligible for a free update within 60 days of the units purchase, so you could try obtaining that before paying. All your GPS updates & accessories can be obtained at www.gpscity.ca or www.gpscity.com.

Hope this helps!

My Sat nav is 2 years old and does not have the new irish roads. How do I update and how much does it cost


You can get information on how to update your garmin satnav at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

You have 2 options when updating, to get a one off update or a lifetime update. (i.e. the lifetime of your satnav rather than your life)
The one off update will cost approx £50.00 or the lifetime update will cost approximately £75.00
If you can afford it the lifetime update is well worth paying the extra for as there are 4 updates every year and it keeps you up to date. Also sometimes when maps get too out of date it causes problems for the satnav and it stops working so it's cheaper in the long run to have the lifetime update.

Hi ive a garmin 200w and it tells me to get mapupdates,can you tell me how i do this and how much it will cost me,thanks


You can get map updates from www.garmin.com You'll have to register your satnav at that site first if you haven't already done so. When registering you'll be asked to select a username and password. Be sure to write them down and keep them in a safe place as you'll need them again if you ever need to update again. There are 2 options for updating. You can get a once off update which costs approx 80 euros or a lifetime update, for approx 130 euros, which allows you to update your maps up to 4 times a year for the lifetime of the satnav. You'll need a credit card to pay. Updates are large, 4 Gb for Europe, so you'll need broadband to download them. If you don't have broadband you can get them sent by DVD. Hope this answers your questions.

Are there free road info download available


No. If you want usefully updated maps, then you have to pay for them. Garmin do offer a "lifetime" maps subscription, but it's only for the lifetime of your product: given that most Garmin SatNav units don't last long enough to benefit from more than a couple of years worth of updates it's usually cheaper to buy the single update option, although the lifetime subscription gives you four updates per year and one-off is just a single annual update.

If your unit also needs updated traffic and camera alerts then it can be cheaper to buy a new satnav.

How do you download updated maps to he garmin nuvi


You can purchase map updates from stores that sell the units, or new this year you can buy updates for the life of your unit from the Garmin website which cost $120. You can get up to 4 updates per year. If you wish you can just purchase a single update for $70.

http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/us/maps/numaps-lifetime

Also download the Garmin Webupdater software from the site which allows you to connect the Nuvi to your computer and will give you free software updates for the unit itself.
