There are many ways in which you can update your Garmin Nuvi GPS Sat Nav in order to either improve it, or simply make it stand out from the crowd – but most of all make sure you get to your destination on time!
For example, you could download a Garmin map update, change the voices on the Nuvi, load in different vehicle icons, and much more.

Another one of the widescreen models, a Garmin Nuvi 255w update is a good idea considering the age that this product is.
When frozen on the loading maps screen - if updating the unit does not work - Garmin requires the unit be sent in under Warranty for repairs/replacement, as the firmware is corrupted - or the onboard memory has failed.
If your device reboots, locks up, or shuts down occasionally while navigating and allows you to go into mass storage mode when you connect it to the computer, please perform a software update using our Webupdater program to correct the issue.
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.My Nuvi 760 has worked faultleesly for 2 years until 2 days ago after I updated the firmware from version 4.8 to version 4.9 downloaded from the Garmin website.Symptoms: when travelling a route to a destination, I move only about 500 metres when the moving map & vehicle position freeze on the screen and the FM transmitter to the car radio ceases to operate (goes to static).Has anybody else had problems after upgrading to version 4.9 which I believe has only just been released?I will contact Garmin Tech Support come Monday to see if they can offer me assistance and report back the outcome. I contacted Garmin about this and they told me that they had not heard of this problem before (yeah, right), but that if V.4.8 worked for me I should stay with it.
