Updating my gps maps
We recommend you dock your device every 30 days to ensure you have the most recent updates.
All new global positioning systems (GPS) come with installed maps.
While a GPS unit makes finding a destination much easier on the road, outdated maps and software make the device less effective.
Keep your Garmin GPS unit up to date through the company's Garmin Express application for Mac or Windows computers.
Download the file appropriate for your computer, then open it to complete the installation process.
Determine which type of global positioning system you use.
This can vary by manufacturer and the operating system installed on the GPS unit.
In some cases, you may be able to opt out of some updates, such as maps.
Keep the GPS unit connected to the computer as Garmin Express installs updates.
