Updating maps on garmin nuvi

Posted by / 04-Feb-2018 11:30

Garmin's line of nuvi GPS devices gives business users the ability to plot their routes and get directions for all automotive trips.However, a GPS unit is only as good as the maps installed on it, and there are times when maps will need to be updated to accommodate new infrastructure, relocated businesses and other changes.Once downloaded and installed, the update process is relatively straightforward.You connect your sat-nav to your PC or Mac using the USB cable that came in the box. The FM updater was offered, but I did not pay for that.If your model does not support that update, uncheck it and continue. DO NOT select UPDATE ALL if you have not paid for all the features offered.I didn't time it but it would have been no mare than a half hour.One thing to check is to see if your antivirus is causing an issue.....

Even with several years of updating various models of Garmin sat-navs, I have found the experience torturous at times.

The old Nuvi 360 has only 2GB internal storage and does not support SDHC, which means it can only support up to 2GB external SD card.

Since the internal storage also has many system files that can not be reduced.

When finished, the application will display "Your maps are now up to date!

Garmin have made a number of changes to their map update procedures in the last year.

Maybe put back in my car as a backup when cell phone signals are low. Garmin had some firmware updates (Version 5.20) dated back in 2010. After install the software and plug in the GPS in the computer, the software automatically detected the device and offer me the updates. Garmin offers one time update for $50 or lifetime update for $90. For example: North America 2015.10 and North America 2013.40 .
