Gps devices updating maps
Additionally, most new GPS devices feature some sort of map guarantee that entitles users to one update to the newest map data within the first 30 days of ownership, free of charge.So, there's really no excuse to put up with outdated maps, even if you've purchased an older GPS unit.
All of the device software is managed through Sat SYNC which will inform you automatically when an update is available when the device is connected via the USB cable.
Hi I've just bought the Garmin - it is taking hours to update maps. I stopped it a couple of times blaming he computer for running slow but now I'm not so sure it is the computer.
All other downloads (GPI POI file updates) are much faster.
The satellites do not transmit any mapping information.
A GPS device is only as good as its maps, so you want to make sure that you have the newest, most accurate map data available before you hit the road.As new features are developed and upgrades become available, Satmap will release these to all its customers.
