Basically you have to pay Garmin for new maps for your device. The do offer a lifetime map plan for some so you could possibly do that.Then when new maps are released you will only have to hook the device up to a computer and update the maps.

I want to do an upgrade on my Garmin Nuvi 255W.


UpGRADE or UpDATE?

Upgrade, sell the old one and buy a new one.

Update, Register the unit on the Garmin site. Download Garmin Express to your computer. Connect the unit with a mini-D charging lead and you can take software upgrades. For map updates, it depends as some are free and some are on a subscription.

Garmin receives sat signal ok will give directions - basically everything operates normally with the exception that the actual map on the screen does not show anything.


Go to your settings and check what options have been selected. You may have to revert to the default settings and then tweak your preferences.

Hi i have a garmin 265 only 4 weeks old. i have lost all side roads and the navigation is well out. says im on the road next to me. i keep loosing gps signal also. any solutions??????????


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Losing gps signal and poor tracking are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS need updating.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

I have a garmin 260.every so offen it reminds me that i need to update the data.I am also finding that it is not showing new roading in my area around Auckland.How please do I upgrade to 2010.Thanks


Go to the Garmin web site & register and that will allow you to upgrade the maps to current. You will also need to use a USB cable and install the software for your Garmin before you can do so.

On the screen of my satnav it says i need to upgrade because it is more than a year old , my satnav is a garmin nuvi 200


No, Your Garmin 200W is simply informing you that a update to 2010 is avalable, simply by a date code. Depending on your area you msy have new listings in your area, Coffee shops, ATM, & Hotel listings and new roads & extits
Your current map 2008 will still work just as it did. You can update your maps to the 2010 currently out from Gamins web site, I think the cost is right at $75 per unit

There are no free downloads for this particular Garmin product. The new 2010 map is available @ www.garmin.com for $59. I have this same GPS and unfortunaly also had to purchase the upgrade for the map.

Garmin GPS 2720


Unfortunately, Fixya is not associated with Garmin. We can only answer device questions and can't speak for the company.

Unfortunately, the unit cannot be upgraded. Garmin provides both in and out of warranty repair service if the unit is having a problem. The 2720 sells for $49 on Amazon, so it probably is not worth your while to have fixed.

The 2720 is known to have issues unfortunately, it is pretty lowly rated on Amazon.

310 c garmin gps on boat not working


Hi, 673king, My Garmin is c330, but I think that all GPS's of this nature are programmed only for roads -- not bodies of water. I haven't updated my 2-yr.-old-Garmin yet for new maps, but what you describe concerning the red question mark is exactly what I get when I am on a road that was constructed after my Garmin was programmed. Since the GPS can't find the road in its memory, it merely has a red question mark until I get onto a road that the software recognizes. It then operates as usual.
