Hello,

My name is Mike, I am a GPS expert. A lot of your problem is updating issues, and rebooting issue. Please read all this information below. Thanks So Much, Here is some of my personal experiences, Sense I am also paid to test new units that hit the market through manufacturers.

Update: September 8, 2011: Navigon was taken over by Garmin. There are NO MORE USA MAP UPDATES for this unit. If you buy it you will NOT be able to update the USA maps.

I'm terrible with directions so I bought this hoping it would help me and it did. It found the satellites immediately and kept me moving along quickly. It updates quickly and even if you choose a different route it recalculates a new route and maps it out instantly. The touch screen is responsive and easy to use. It's well made and doesn't feel cheap. The windshield mount works easily and holds the unit in place.

When you register the unit at the Navigon website, you'll find out that a software update is not necessary as of today. FreshMaps is supposed to be available this month (July) and you can sign up for E-mail notification as to when they'll be ready for download. The unit comes with a 2 gig memory card and you can install a larger one when it's needed. The operating system for the mapping program is Windows CE. No problems with it yet.

So far, I'm happy with this unit. It does what I need without a load of unnecessary bells and whistles.

August 3, 2008: As of today, FreshMaps update is now available for this unit. Just go to the Navigon website, log into your account and download the Navigon downloader program. Install the program on your computer and you're ready to go. You can even backup your old maps with this downloader program which is recommended before you download the new maps and install them.

October 1, 2008: Navigon now gives you FREE lifetime traffic information. You just can't go wrong. I've been very happy with this unit.


HERE IS SOME MORE COMPUTER BORING INFORMATION TOO:

The Navigon models, like many competitors, use a customized version of Microsoft's Windows CE as their basic operating system - augmented by a software package which includes the Map information, Points Of Interest, and the manufacturer's particular 'twist' on a User Interface (what you deal with, onscreen, to enter information and use the device). The Navigon units use a 2GB SD Memory Card to hold it all - which allows for an easy hardware upgrade (pop in a bigger Card) if the data-handling needs ever grow beyond 2GB. (In comparison, my ancient Garmin had a 32MB internal chip, and wasn't expandable.)

BOTTOM LINE, IS YOU NEED TO TURN POWER OFF, AND AS YOU TURN IT ON, HOLD ON BUTTON ALL THE WAY THROUGH BOOT UP UNTIL IT TURNS COMPLETELY ON THEN RELEASE ON BUTTON. IF THIS MANUAL REBOOT PROCESS DOES NOT WORK, NEED TO UPDATE UNIT.

I HOPE THIS HELPS, MIKE, FROM FIXYA

also to contact me for future problems, check out my direct market place site through fixya for other areas I am a expert in. Thanks Again, Mike

I HAVE A GARMIN NUVI 200 AND IT NEEDS TO HAVE THE MAPS UPDATED. IT IS 18 MONTHS OLD AND I CAN'T FIND A FREE DOWNLOAD FOR IT.


Map updates are free for units which are recently sold with the older maps and the new maps have been published, ie you just bought a unit in 2009 which still had 2008 maps on it after the 2009 maps had been released. Rather than recall all the units from the store shelves, they offer free updates on the mapping software. Continually updating the maps on 18 month old units is not free, there is an update charge. What is free from Garmin is the unit's software. Hope this clarifies your assumption.

I recently (July)purchased the lifetime update option for my Nuvi 350 and with assistance from Garmin was able to update my unit. My unit has displayed a notice twice since the update that the maps are...


Please look to see what map year that you have on your unit. At the main menu, press the "wrench" symbol, then the map icon and then "map info". The map should be 2010.... either 2010.10 or 2010.20...etc. If it's anything older, like 2009 or 2008, your unit was not updated.

If you have 2010 as the map year, you are fine. Also remember to ugrade your firmware too...

Have you installed latest "tt home" - in uk currently version 2.6.2 also latest version on your TT920?

I had to install several updates when I first purchased my tt920 about 1 year ago, and that was in about half an hour of installing software on pc. Now seem to get a Home update every few months.

GPS MAP QUESTION


No, Garmin will not provide map updates for free. You can update the unit's firmware for free from Garmin's website, but if you need new maps you must purchase them and download them into the unit. It should not be necessary to do this right away, though. Even if the unit does not have 2008 maps on it, unless there are major changes to the areas you travel most, it should get you around fine until you do decide to purchase updates.

The only way to update the maps is to purchase new maps from Garmin and download them via the computer. The 2008 map updates are currently available, and Garmin has told me new maps will be out in a few months.

Cant download free upgrades / POI are not all there


Verify the map version by touching the wrench and then Map and the Mapinfo. You should see something similar to the following. The lastest map is 2008. If you have purchased your unit with in the last couple of month, then you are entitle to a free map upgrade from v8 to 2008

Garmin Map update 2008


you will need to install the usb driver which should be located on the 2008 disk. When you attach the gps to your computer it should ask where the usb driver is located. If your dvd drive is (D) click browse and go the disk and find usb driver folder. I have purchased the new 2008 disk and had problems with it freezing on loader loading. I then browsed the disk and downloaded and then was able to get to the maps. I did not install it due to it asking what map I want to download. I wanted the whole thing so needless to say I am taking it back to walmart. I hope this helps.
