Tired of pulling over to ask or search for an address? Hate getting lost or being directed on a dark, unknown route; all your need is a Garmin GPS and all your problems will vanish. No more asking directions, pulling over, getting lost or going on unknown routes with Garmin GPS. All you need to do is keep your Garmin GPS up to date as you know streets and routes constantly change. Keeping your GPS is quite easy specially with Garmin’s Express software that reduces all the work of searching to install a map or an update. All you have to do is just plugin your device into your computer and let Garmin Express handle all the updates.

Here are a few steps that you can use to update an old Garmin GPS:

  • Connect your device to a computer

Remove your device from your car, truck or motorcycle plug it in a computer using a mini USB cable. Make sure that your device is powered on before you plug it in. You will see a progress bar. The prompts will begin automatically if you have connected your device earlier also. If it’s your first time, you will have to sign in to your Garmin account manually before starting.

  • Install Garmin Express

Make sure you have Garmin Express installed on your computer. If you don’t have Garmin express, open your web browser and navigate to the Garmin Express download page and select “Download for Windows” or “Download for Mac”. After downloading the file, install it by following the prompts shown on your screen.

  • Purchase or install free updates

Make sure you have an active internet connection so that your Garmin Express opens after installing it. To install updates, click on “Add a Device” and locate your GPS. Garmin Express will search for all the updates available and show them on your screen. Select the required updates you want to install (select the check box beside “Select all” if you want to install all the updates). After completion, you will have all the apps that are free or those standard apps that came with your device. Purchase lifetime updates if you did not purchase them earlier.

  • Disconnect your device

After you finish installing free updates or purchasing new updates, click on “eject” to safely disconnect your device and then unplug the USB cable. After unplugging your device, install it back in your vehicle. 

You will get all the latest maps and routes with completely accuracy.
