The site and features, not to mention basic oeprating systems should be more user friendly.And why not give a little more to your customers to keep them as well as make them happy?
No, it is not free and yes, that makes people upset they have to pay for it.
However that’s the way things are at present with Garmin and map updates. To note: Windows (and even OS X) will This is the #1 reason why people have any problem with updating a Garmin GPS.
where i bought it they had a return poilicy that says you may return it within the 15 days…
and i returned it on the 16th day and they didnt take it back because i was only a day late—which is so unfairr.. so all i could do was to use it cause there was nothing else i could do.plus i payed alot for the gps system.also they didnt take it backk…so i thought maybe i could do something about the update.i went on the garmin website.. because i wanted to download some maps that were on there website which said they were free once i clicked on the link it asked me to pay..
how is it possible for such a link to say it is free but once you click on it ..
it is asking you to pay for the maps..there website givess me a headache all the time.site is not true to its word or advertising…IT IS FALSE ADVERTISTING!!!! Well, based on how much I could translate: The reason your “Gramin” was unable to be returned after 14 days is due to the vendor and not Garmin corporation. If you want to tell your friends to “NOTTT” buy “Gramin” GPS devices, feel free.
I have a 260W Garmin that does everything I want except give me the speed limit when I travel on major roads. In my previous comment I may have sounded a bit strong on the Garmin company in general.
Is there any way I can add it to my unit; possibly with an update or software add on? Don’t get me wrong or misunderstand, as I do think Garmin makes some really good stuff (& hardware), however their policies and customer support is where they really lack!
The updater app did exactly what it was supposed to do and now I enjoy the latest-and-greatest map data set on my c580.
If while driving you see a road that is marked incorrectly, or the intersection that is labeled wrong, or a business listed that is no longer there or the like, remember the following: Garmin does not provide the map data. If you want to report a map inaccuracy, head over to mapreporter. It’s free and stupidly easy to report map errors there. I followed your instructions to access the website and register the product.
So if you ever wondered how you can easily report map issues, there you go. It quickly progressed to the point where it asked me to plug in the USB cable and it appeared to be moving forward with the download. Updated maps cost , but I can buy a refurb Nuvi 255W for .
