Nav V map updates

Post by doebag » Tue Jun 04, 2019 5:48 pm

Evening all.
Found my way here from the old forum.
I am having trouble updating the maps on a Nav V for a friend.
I managed to update the maps on my Zumo 660 and an old nuvi 255 easily, but have come to a dead end on the Nav V.
I have it added to my Garmin Express, and managed to update the software, but when I look for the maps update the only option I get is for adding speed cameras.
Any suggestions please ?

Do you have lifetime maps for the Nav V? If Express isn't showing an update you may not, or there may not be an update for that model.

Thanks for the quick reply. I guess there are no map updates for the Nav V, as I have just retried my 660 and that only offers speed camera updates as well, now that I have updated it a few days ago.

If you are wanting new maps for these units, have you looked into the Open Street Map option..

http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/

I've had to go this route to get new maps for my SP2820....
The maps appear to be as accurate as Garmin's, though the 'where to' database seems to be lacking a bit when searching......not that I'm complaining as you get what you pay for and these are free, or a donation if you feel inclined.
