SOURCE: free updates or downloads for a garmin streetpilot c330

There are no free map updates for the StreetPilot Series.

The newer models do come with a free update that must be downloaded within 60 days of purchasing the system.

There are utilities for adding POI (Points of Interest) as well as Browser plugins that can be used to add Favourite Locations from Google maps. these updates are available from the garmin website.

You didn't say how long you've had your device, but if you haven't registered your device at Garmin.com yet, go do that and they will then offer you a free upgrade.

Other than that, I don't think you'll find anything free. The next best thing is to buy the "nüMaps Lifetime™". I felt this was the best deal they have.

I want to do a map update on my garmin streetpilot c340. How do I do this?


First get whichever USB cable that model requires if you are not tech savy take it to radio shack and tell them you need the cabnle to connect it to your computer. Go to Garmin.com and there will be a program you will have to download onto your computer. This program will have an auto detect mode that will detect your model number or you can manually type it in. If it has free updates then it will prompt you not to power off the Gamin or close the program and it will download the program. you may also have to have an SD memory card with at least 2 GB of open data space availible. IF it does not have free updates it will give you pricing, i boughtg the lifetime updates for my Garmin

Why is the update for the Garmin Nuvi 200 $70 on Garmin's website? Shouldn't these updates cost less if I am downloading directly from their website? Is there a free version anywhere?


Map updates are not free. It takes time and money for Garmin to research the new roads, POIs, routes etc.

Software updates ARE free. If you are looking to update the unit's software - download Garmins WEBUPDATER, and after you install it from that link, and plug in your device - your PC will recognize/check and update (if necessary) to the newest version every time.

Maps are written with proprietary software and not available anywhere for a free download.

Lost the information card


Garmin.com should have anything you need to help you get going. You can download map updates or new maps altogether and save them to an SD card to load onto the device. You should be entitled to one free map update with your new device if you have not taken it yet. You can also download manuals as well; their website is pretty loaded with information and I have had good luck dealing with them.

Free map updates for Garmin c330


Garmin has released new maps. Most of their units are entitled to a free update if the unit was purchased recently Just a heads up to anyone who recently purchased a C330. According to Garmin's tech support, the map udate 2008 is not free to those of us that recently purchased a C330. Only to those who purchased a C340 and up. Their excuse is that it is a "low end" unit, and also that the memory cannot hold the full US maps on the DVD. Gee, I can purchase the update for $69.99 and load a subset of the maps if I want, according to the person in tech support, but I cannot receive it as a free update. So, apparently buyer beware if you purchase Garmin's "low end" units. You will apparently not be able to receive a free update of maps, even if the unit you buy is already out of date.

If you have downloaded the latest version of WebUpdater, you will be able to update the unit's firmware for free from Garmin. If you are looking to update the actual maps on the unit, map updates can be purchased in CD or SD card formats.
