    I have the same problem and the device is useless now because you can't get past the screen as pressing OK does not do anything. Turning the device off and on again just gets you back to the same screen that you can't get past. My device is a nuvi 770.

There is no need to update the maps if you are happy with the gps performance. Many GPS manufacturers offer update maps every year and this might be a way that they are trying to scare you into buying something that you may not want. That said if you have had the gps for more than 2 years I would reccomend updating the maps, especially if you live in an area that changes a lot, i.e. California.Can you clear the message? If so does it return frequently? If would help if you provided the model of the gps.
Let me know,

I have my update on a SHC card and cannot find a way to update the maps through the settings menu. This is a Garmin 255w Nuvi


If you have purchased an update for your Garmin device they are generally applied directly to the GPS either via DVD or online download. If you received the mapping on a SD it would not update your internal maps but provide with a newer set to use. I could help a bit more with a little more info.

Hope this helps!

I have a Garmin Nuvi 1490t, I purchased it last year and received lifetime map updates. I am trying to update the maps on it because they are out of date.

Details of how to update your maps are at
The only difference in updating when you have a lifetime map update is that when you click on GET MAP you are taken to the download screen instead of the payment screen.

Garmin 600/650

Most likely you had the 2007 or 2008 maps. Click on the wrench icon, then the maps symbol and then the word "info" or "about" and you should see the current map revision. If you updated it recently, it should now show 2009.
