To update the existing map for your Nextar product, please contact Nextar to find out if any new map information has become available. The products are usually pre-loaded with USA/Canada maps, depending on the model.
OR
Go to Nextar.com and select your model.

How do i upgrade my navman sat nav with new roads and it used to warn me when speed cameras were present but does not now


Map updates are usually NOT free. Some manufacturers allow for a "one time update" within 30 days of purchase - to ensure the owner of the latest maps. Other than that, there are three models out there.

One is a the purchase of individual map sets for the geographical area of interest for a modest fee. nearly all manufacturers offer this type of update. In return, a disk containing a program to update the maps in the GPS is run on your computer while the GPS is connected via USB cable or serial cable. You might even end up maps preloaded on a removable memory card. Simply inserting the card into the slot on some GPS units will allow the the GPS to use the new maps on the card instead of those installed on the internal memory of the GPS (if the memory card is removed, the GPS uses the old internal maps).

The second model is a map subscription service (Garmin and a few others) that allows for the download of new mapsets as they become available (2 or more times per year) to your computer. This is done on older models (those sold before lifetime maps were offered) or if it is determined that buying updates one at a time will be too costly, after purchasing the GPS. Running the download with the GPS connected to the computer will update the internal maps of the GPS - just like the disk method. The subscription service costs more than buying a single update disk, but is often less than the cost of 2 update purchases. The subscription lasts a predetermined amount of time, or in many cases, "for the life of the GPS".

The last is similar to the subscription method above, only that you purchase the GPS with lifetime map subscription built in to the cost of the GPS. Included in the GPS package are instructions on how to go about starting the subscription and installing the maps - the same instructions are included with the purchase of a subscription after purchasing the GPS.

One place that sells maps for the Navman brand GPS can be found at http://www.activegps.co.uk/navman-maps.htm You may also find them available for sale in retail outlets that sell the Navman GPS devices, too.

Speed or "Safety" cameras and Red Light Camera locations are often offered as a subscription, due to the not necessarily permanent placement of these devices. Some manufacturers offer this, while others do not. Third party providers have stepped up to fill the void created by those that do not offer this information. I found these sites that have this data available:

http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/uksafetycameras-navman.php
http://www.speedcamerasuk.com/speed-camera-database.htm

There may be others that cost less or are even free. Keep in mind that maintaining this database can be difficult, so the free databases are more likely to have erroneous information in them when compared to those databases that charge for access.

I hope this was a good starting pint for you and helped. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Ho I update maps for my 205w GPS


You'll need to install the software on your computer first. Then you will need to connect your Garmin with a USB cable just like you would a camera to upload pictures. The computer should find your GPS and finish the install and give you a choice to update your map database. This usually is a fee based update. Not too expensive and maybe you can purchase a lifetime update deal through e-bay or amazon etc. Good luck!

Is there such a thing as a download to update I


Are you referring to the maps and points of interest database?
If so, the short answer is NO. By contacting the company that developed this product; I learned recently they have no plans to update the maps in the foreseeable future.

How do I update my GPS map database for a Nextar X3-08


Go to www.nextar.com. At the bottom right of the homepage there is a link:2009 Maps Update Available". Click it and you will be asked to pay 69.99 USD for a one-time map upgrade. "No internet necessary" - I think they send you a new SD card loaded with the new maps.

Does Garmin GPS 295 contains Maps for Africa and the Middle East


Hi there -

The GPSMap 295 can only have one region at a time - North America, South America, etc. You can purchase an updated database specifically for Africa and the Middle East - it's about $50 USD. It will erase whatever region you have in there right now (you can't store Africa/MidEast with America, for instance. It's one at a time.)

The Garmin Website:

http://shop.garmin.com/aviation/databases/

lets you download new Jeppesen databases to your GPSMap 295. Select your model, then select which region you want.

***Before you buy:*** You'll have to have the data cable to connect it to your computer. Without that, you will have no way to update the maps and database.

If you do have the data cable, the process is very easy - just follow the instructions carefully, and make sure all the numbers they ask you for are correct. I just did mine today. Good luck!
