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!

Doesn't matter what the serial number is, you have to pay for updates unless you bought the lifetime map update package. Try going to Garmin.com

I HAVE A GARMIN GPS WITHOUR ANY CONNECTION WIRE TO COMPUTER, CAN I DO ANY UPDATE


Unfortunately you need the wire unless it has wifi capabilities. Garmin says you must get the wire from them but I have heard of others doing this with a generic/aftermarket cable for just a fraction of the cost.

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 Also sometimes when maps get too out of date it causes problems for the satnav and it stops working so it's cheaper in the long run to have the lifetime update.

Yesterday my Nuvi 205 worked fine, today it will not turn on. I have verified with another unit that the charge cable is fine and the other units charger will not activate my Nuvi


If your Garmin NUVI 205 can be recognized by your computer when plugged in, I recommend you backup your favorites.

Then I suggest attempting a hard reset.

Finally, replace the firmware and system software using webupdate. Your Nuvi should not need to be able to power up for a firmware update to be possible - replacing the firmware should allow it to power up successfully after the update.

I hope that helps.

Nuvi 205 voice stopped working


I had the same problem. I went onto Garmin.com and attached the Nuvi to the computer using a cord that I had for my blackberry phone. Once connected, I turned on the Nuvi and ran the update tool. The update tool will reinstall the voices. This seemed to work the first time. I have had to do this twice now since I received the Nuvi 205 on December 26, 2008 (it's February 13, 2009)
