Garmin nuvi updating device software
These days, fresh map data is often only a download away, but that doesn't make it any less of a pain in the butt.
Case in point: grabbing Garmin's maps required no fewer than three software downloads and about an hour of waiting for the 2GB of map data to download and install.
And because this is such a sizable download, only high-speed Internet will do; DSL and dial-up fans should order the hard copy.
You'd have to order your update on CD, DVD, or SD card and wait for it to arrive in the mail.The map updates are available in either a hard copy disc format or as an online download.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.If you'd rather not wait for your local letter carrier to bring you the newest map, you can download the map updates directly from Garmin's Web site.Before you do so, you'll want to make sure you have adequate space for the download on both your computer and your Garmin -- the update will first be copied to your computer and then to the device.
