How do you download map updates to your GPS?

I need help with my GPS, it is four years old and I know there are better directions available now.

Buy maps from MapSource. Unlock and register the puchased map. You can even plan trips on the computer and send the data to your GPS.

Depending on the brand of GPS that you have, they should have map updates available for purchase on the dealers website. They typically require that you have an SD card to transfer the map pack onto, then to transfer onto your GPS. The process is rather quick. Some brands, you can even hook the GPS up directly.

It really depends on the BRAND of GPS you own. Some offer free map updates while others charge you to download or receive a memory card with updated maps. Should be in the manual if you still have it. Go to the brand names website, they should have information on how to update the unit there.

Well this process will vary depending on who makes the gps unit. Consult the manufacturer to see how to get updates.

If your GPS has a USB port, hook it up to your computer and go on the website of the company you bought it from and look for updates there.

Well some player do let you update software but not knowing your brand or model I can't say exactly how to do so. Try looking on the manufacturer's site.

You will need to first go the the website of the manufacture of your GPS unit. After finding the site, type in the name or model of your unit in their search. Hook your GPS bia USB plug in and download whatever updates they have available for your GPS unit.
