Uk costs updating sat nav
Even with several years of updating various models of Garmin sat-navs, I have found the experience torturous at times.You buy a micro/SD card preloaded with the Ireland/UK maps, you insert it into the side of your device and off you go.If all goes to plan, not only will the latest maps for your sat-nav be installed but also the latest device software, Bluetooth updates, voice updates and so on. Register your sat-nav by entering your email address when requested to do so. I recommend that you only use Express if you have a good and reliable broadband connection as some of the maps files are very large and take several hours to download from Garmin. During the update procedure and depending on your device, you may be asked to disconnent your sat-nav from your PC and reboot it (turning it back on).
The free PC based software can be downloaded from here, `My Tom Tom for new devices and Tom Tom Home for older devices.
In this case you update the maps on your sat-nav using Garmin Express which you download from Garmin's website and install on your PC or Mac.
Once downloaded and installed, the update process is relatively straightforward.
This process is painless, straightforward and the cheapest solution.
We only sell the latest maps that are available (Garmin update these every 3 to 4 months) and a map card can be purchased from here Ireland & UK SD card If your sat-nav has a 'LM' designation, for example, the nuvi 2415LM or nuvi 2597LM then your device comes with free lifetime map updates.
