Updating maps for garmin nuvi
My kids just use their spcell phones for directions (I tend to use paper maps or dust off a cheap gps), so that is an option. I don't know how to do this elsewhere, nor do I know which apps work offline well, hence enquiring about that as my alternative. With Garmin's prices (No different with TOMTOM) you're better off waiting until you arrive in Canada and buying a brand new GPS. I don't know if Apple lets you have Google Maps but you can use Google Maps offline. You can try the three options at home to see how you like them.Glancing at I see a couple of brand new GPS for 0. hi see if you have the North America maps and not US only maps by planning for a destination in Canada.I would look at North America instead of just Canada maps - you will then be good for your next road trips (-: You can not buy a new GPS for USD which is the price I am getting on that page.It may direct you to the UK page As you have an j Phone, just use Googlemaps. The maps are up to date and loaded with tons of information so that often you do not even need an address.All the products manufactured by Garmin are unique and they guarantee consumer satisfaction from the services which they provide.
You can update the Garmin Nuvi the official way by downloading and using a free program called Garmin Express, or you can install community-created maps from an unaffiliated website.
We own a 3 year old USA model Garmin Nuvi 50 with USA maps only. Please can somebody let me know if it is possible to load maps for Canada onto the device? I have looked at Garmin's website, and most of the links are for updating existing map sets.
IIt seems to have few comments on loading maps for different geographic areas and whether it would be possible.
For example, does the device have a limited capacity, meaning that I need to off load my USA maps before I can buy then upload the maps for Canada? Would there be a better way of getting free or cheaper good maps for Canada that work offline?
I do have an old model 'spare' i Phone, unlocked, for example. I will be honest in that I know little about the Garmin but looking at their Nuvi page, I am guessing you bought the 'lower 49 states' version (this means no Hawaii, Alaska or Puerto Rico so not all USA).
Copy it to your PC for safekeeping, then delete it from the GPS.
