I just spoke with Garmin and they walked me through correcting the problem - very helpful. It is a matter of resetting the unit. Turn unit off, then press a finger tightly against the bottom right hand corner of screen, holding it while turning unit on. When screen comes up, let go of power button but still pressing bottom right hand corner of screen, answer question regarding deleting defaults. It is tricky and may have to be done a couple times. Then you will answer questions regarding time zones, etc. When finished with this, turn unit off and go outside in order for the unit to re-aquire satellites. When all four bars on upper right hand corner turn green, you're back in business - or at least it worked for me. Hopefully this will help, but you may want to call Garmin as they are really helpful and can explain it better than I can. Good luck!

You can contact Ferro Works and they will send you a new CD with maps on it. They were not very clear on how updated the Version is. I called them and had a commitment of a new CD to be sent to me within fifteen minutes of dialing.
Here is the Info

Update 1st time


Make sure that you are using the latest version of MyDrive Connect.

Connect your navigation device to your computer and switch on your device.

MyDrive Connect starts and automatically checks if a newer version of your map is available. If you are entitled to the Latest Map Guarantee, MyDrive Connect offers you the latest map.

Click Continue and follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the available map.

Once the installation is complete, the installation screen will close and you are re-directed to the My Content page. Also, the status in MyDrive Connect changes to Connected.

When you see the MyDrive Connect icon on your computer and the message on your navigation device that the installation has completed, disconnect your navigation device from your computer.

your device has been updated

I want to update the maps in my IGO 8 Navigation device. Can you help please?


Go to Garmins website and download the Garmin Express? software. Look on Garmins site for the update unit software. Install the software. Hook the device up to your computer then wait for software to install drivers. Once you have done that-then open the garmin software you installed. Software should take it from there.

How to update map


I helped a buddy update his Uniden GPS (Trax350). Simply follow these steps and you should be done.

Uniden's MapTrax350 GPS device accepts voice-command programming and provides detailed audio commands, as well, speaking aloud the map directions that are displayed on its screen. Keeping your Trax350's firmware updated is crucial to keeping it working correctly. Usually, you can go to a company's website and download the latest software, but with Uniden, you must register your product first to access the proper free upgrades. It takes minutes.

Instructions

things you'll need: USB cable

1 Navigate to the link in the Resources section and fill in the required fields. Click on "Register."
2 Turn on your device and connect it to the computer using its USB cable.
3 Log in to the site with the password that was sent to your email address after you registered the device.
4 Choose "Software Upgrades." Select the MapTrax350 device, and the latest firmware upgrade will appear. Click "Download."
5 Select "Save File" and choose a location on your computer to save it to. After it has downloaded, double-click the program icon, select "Run" and follow the prompts to update your Trax350.

Good luck!

Hi, anyone know if there is a cheaper way to update maps for western and eastern europe on a Tomtom Go 910? Mr Tomotom wants &70 and I may as well buy a new sat nav!


The only other way to get maps is to look for third party map files. Sometimes they are free. I've not tried to find one for my tomtom but have for my magellan. So if someone has done one then you just need to search the web for something like tomtom map download and the area covered.

Need to up date maps


Create an account at myGarmin regsiter your unit ID number this will allow you to unlock the maps that you buy. You then have two options the first requires you to have an NT 2009 or 2008 map already installed.
nüMaps Lifetime™This will cost you £99.99 and is a on off payment Remember — this map update can only be used to update the preloaded maps that came installed on your Garmin GPS device. For example, a Garmin GPS device preloaded with North America maps only cannot be updated with a nüMaps Lifetime Europe Map Update, and vice versa. Check product compatibility. nüMaps Onetime™ This will cost you £79.99 and does not rely on having a map already installed.
The City Navigator® Europe NT comes on a DVD or you can download it.

Screen defaulted to Win CE


well, I had a similar problem once, I managed to get the unit to relaod the map data using my repair dvd but I cannot guarantee this will work in your case. if your unit still has the basic operating system intact, you shoudl be able to boot it with the firmware update in the SD card and it will load, however, someone else told me they were not able to do this becasue the unit would never try to boot from the SD card. it was basically a brick.

One solution is to visit C&C wireless and pay over $100 for a map update or even send them your unit for even more $. see http://www.finedrive-acc.com/shop.cart?action=ITEM&prod_id=F400-08CP

The other solution was to send it to Fine Digital but they closed their doors in the US so they no longer support us customers. Because of this I made a DVD with map data I purchased from them before they closed and I added much better instructions; this DVD updates the firmware in the unit and loads the last map data issued to the SD card. you would need a PC with a DVD drive and SD card reader to use it. you can find these DVDs on ebay for $18 which basically covers my costs only.

GARMIN 510 2009 MAPS


I'm quite sure you need to purchase the 2009 City Navigator SD card to update the maps. That what I did last year to get the 2008 City Navigator maps. You will need to leave the SD card in the unit to use the new maps though..

I haven't been able to determine whether it's possible to update the actual install map on the device. I'm guessing it's possible but would require a computer and an map update to write directly to the device. If I find steps to update the installed maps, I will post them here.
