Updating a garmin
In 2009, Garmin announced a new program in which users could receive regular map updates for as long as they owned the device for a single upfront fee.
The content can be easily managed with the latest updates.
The update has intuitive, step-by-step directions for launching the update.
One thing to remember, though: When the menu provides you with a serial number, be sure to make note of it.
The wiki How Tech Team also followed the article's instructions and validated that they work. This wiki How teaches you how to update your Garmin Nuvi GPS using a Windows or Mac computer.
You can update the Garmin Nuvi the official way by downloading and using a free program called Garmin Express, or you can install community-created maps from an unaffiliated website.
If you choose to go with the hard copy option, you order the disc from Garmin, copy it to your computer and attach your Garmin to the computer to sync the devices.
