Welcome to Fixya

Updating the Maps consists of two parts. Updating the firmware and maps of the device. Make sure that your computer has access to Internet. You'll need to get an Activation Code from the website during the updating process.

Update Firmware

1. Turn on your device and connect it to the computer via the USB cable.

2. Insert the DVD (came with the unit) to the DVD drive of your computer.

3. The auto run program starts. Select the language you want for the update wizard.
4. The main menu appears. Click Update Firmware.
5. Read the warning messages in the pop-up window and click OK.
6. The progress bar indicates the progress of the updating. It takes about 40 seconds to
complete. When the "Update complete" message appears, click OK.
7. Disconnect the USB cable.
8. Re-initialize your device by sliding the ON/OFF switch on the bottom of your device to
OFF and then back to ON.
9. Complete the language and data/time settings on your device. The Home screen should
appear.

Update Maps

1. Connect your device to your computer via the USB cable.
2. On the main menu, click Update Maps.
3. The map selection screen appears. Click Load map.
4. A warning message appears on the screen. Follow the instructions and click OK.

5. The "Map Updating Activation" window pops up. Click the hyperlink to access the website
where you can get the Activation Code.
6. Follow the instructions on the website to get the unique Activation Code for your device.
7. Go back to the "Map Updating Activation" window and enter the DVD Serial No. and
Activation Code. Then click Continue
8. Click Transmit to Device. The progress bar indicates the progress of the updating. It takes about 45 minutes to complete.
9. When the "Update complete" message appears, click OK.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I want to download the latest upgrades for australia without paying mio their $79.00 . for that price i might as well buy a new gps


Unfortunately, the best and easiest way to update your maps would be to purchase the upgrade through mio. If you are looking for an illegal/pirated version of the update, you will have to do some heavy searching to find one. I quickly searched some potential sites for the australia maps, but I could not find what you are looking for. Unfortunately, mio is not the most popular GPS brand and free mio map updates are much more difficult to find than Garmin or TomTom map updates. My recommendation would be to pay for the legitimate software, or buy a Garmin or other GPS if you can find a good deal. Here is a new Garmin GPS you can get for 69.99 with free shipping:

Good luck!
