Updating to the latest maps and software on your Garmin Nuvi will ensure your sat nav is reliable and up-to-date.
Having the latest maps is a great way to help you drive on unfamiliar roads, so you can be sure to arrive at the right destination on time, saving time and money in the process.
Maps are updated much more often than the official Garmin maps.
You can do this in the terminal or just open your file manager as root (“sudo thunar” in a terminal window) and move the file from your Garmin to the “Map” subfolder. ALWAYS BACK UP the old map in case something goes wrong! Select and download the new maps from It’s easy, just follow the prompts on the screen to select your map by continent, country, state, province, or customize your own. So I selected only my own state for the new map, because that’s really all I need and it’s just a few hundred MB in size. But until you're sure everything works okay, keep that old one around!
If you customize yours, you’ll need to enter your e-mail address and they’ll notify you when it’s compiled and ready to download.
It’s important to regularly update your Garmin Nuvi GPS maps, content and software.
Roads are constantly changing, being improved and redeveloped.
