Garmin GPS Update in 4 Easy Steps:
Remove your Garmin device, Nuvi, Zumo, Drive etc from your car and connect it to a PC. You can do this via the USB cable provided alongside the device.
Once the device has been connected, the computer will pick it up automatically and the drivers would be installed.
In case, this doesn’t happen, you can consider signing in to your Garmin account.
The next step would be to download the Garmin map manager software or Garmin Express. This software manages all your Garmin GPS update and helps you install new ones easily.
You will need this installed on the computer you have connected your Garmin device with. In case you don’t have it installed already, you can download it from the download page.
Once the device and the Garmin Express software are in place, it’s time to install the new Garmin GPS update.
You can do so by launching the Garmin Express software and heading to “Add a Device”. When you do so, the software will quickly recognize the device and offer updates for your device.
You can view the updates and see which all you would like to install. If you want to install all the updates, you can easily do so by clicking on “select all”.
This way, you’d be able to get all the latest updates in one go. Remember to keep the device connected while the updates are being installed and downloaded. This could take some time to process.
After the download and installation process is over, you are ready to hit the road again with enhanced security. Remove the device from your PC and reinstall it back in your car. You’re done! Enjoy the safe ride with dedicated GPS maps.
