nüMaps lifetime map update for North America online map code

Note:
A nüMaps Lifetime subscription entitles you to receive up to four (4) map data updates per year, when and as such updates are made available on Garmin’s website, for one (1) compatible Garmin product until your product’s useful life expires or Garmin no longer receives map data from its third party supplier, whichever is shorter. Your nüMaps Lifetime subscription may not be transferred to another person or another Garmin product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Digital Download takes time November 11, 2009
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download|Verified Purchase
The only drawback to this is that it takes time. About two hours to download @ 2.6mps DSL and approximately another two hours to install. The size of the file was 2.02 GB. If you are on Dial-up, forget it. You don't have to attend the download, but you do need to be present at the install to click I agree and OK a few times. Once it is installed, everything worked with no hitches of any kind. While I haven't used it on the road yet, I was able to determine there was substantial updates in the data file for all of the various type things that you might be looking for, i.e., restaurants, service stations, etc.

All of my old settings remained the same, recently found items remained the same, etc. What you are purchasing from Amazon is the product key and you then go to the Garmin site and download the software. I updated from the 2008 version.

5.0 out of 5 stars same as card without mailing November 19, 2009
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download
About time. The Lifetime maps update consists of a card with the code on it (scratch off secured), which could just as well be emailed securely. The code is only useful for a download anyway.
How long Garmin provides maps for a device only time will tell. The update is restricted to a particular registered device and cannot be transferred. The price is only slightly more than a single one-time update now.
With the pace of improvements in devices some customers might prefer to replace a unit after a year or two, in which case an update might not be worthwhile. Garmin offers each device fully up to date when purchased, with one free update download at that time if the unit has been too long in inventory (system updates quarterly).

5.0 out of 5 stars Extend the useful life of your GPS December 20, 2009
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I've had a StreetPilot C330 since 2005 and absolutely love it. Twice I've updated the maps using the DVD method, but I'm thrilled that they now have 1) life time maps, and 2) the ability to update directly from the internet. I will comment primarily on the update method because the updates will never have every new road, and some POI's will be closed or not updated. That seems to be the same for all GPS systems, and there is no point in moaning about it here. Technology is not perfect, but given my total lack of a sense of direction I would be lost without my Garmin.

Before you begin it helps to know a few technical things. 1) You should go to the Garmin website and register so that you have access to the latest operating system for your particular gps (mine was outdated), have the proper USB drivers installed to recognize your gps, have the latest web updater software installed, and have the latest communicator plugin installed. This took about an hour overall, but is time well spent as it streamlines the upgrade process later on. 2) After installing/updating everything you can find, connect your GPS to your computer via a USB cable. NOTE: Many systems have USB 2.0 connections only on the back of the computer. The ones on the front panel are very often only 1.x USB connections. Using a 1.x connection will drastically increase your update time, if it works at all. My computer would not recognize the Garmin C330 until I connected it to the back USB sockets which I know are USB 2.0. 3) If you have updated and installed the necessary programs and connected your GPS, your computer should recognize it as soon as you plug it in. Run Garmin's webupdater program to ensure everything is the very latest.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ensure your GPS is registered to you by Garmin first December 30, 2009
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download|Verified Purchase
If you purchased your Garmin GPS used, you may not be able to upgrade your maps. If your device is registered in a previous owner's name, then Garmin will not allow YOU to upgrade the device. They will not contact the registered owner to have them remove the registration, either. So check to be sure you can register your device before you buy a map upgrade or you will have made a very expensive mistake.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nuvi Garmin Lifetime Map update July 2, 2010
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download|Verified Purchase
Ok for $86 bucks you can't beat this considering that Garmin sells the lifetime for $119. So here is the skinny. Follow these instructios and it will save you a bunch of headachs.
1. Register your unit on the Garmin website
2. If its already registered then go to the site and log in and ensure your Garmin is plugged into your computer
3. Click on mymaps and then click on activate gift card this is where you enter your code from Amazon
4. Follow the steps when you get to a page that already has a code do not change it leave it alone and click next or continue.
5. It will take you through a few more steps then the loading will begin. This portion takes about two hours so go shopping :0) and when you return it will be completed.
6. I STRONGLY SUGGEST you get a 8gb or 1tb card to load the rest of the map. Let me go back, before loading the map to your Garmin you will have to choose what portion of the US you drive to frequently because the whole map WILL NOT FIT on your Garmin.
7. After choosing the states that you want to load e.g. lower 49+PR then click to begin loading your map
8. Once loading is completed and your Garmin has been updated follow the steps below to save the other states on your SD card. (Warning: I have a 4g card and it was full when I loaded CA alone).
If you have updated the preloaded maps on your device and you would like to install additional map regions you can send the maps to a blank microSD/SD card using MapInstall.

To install additional map regions to a blank microSD/SD card after the map update:

Windows XP and Vista

1. Insert the SD card into your nuvi

2. Connect the nuvi to your PC

3. Click Start

4. Go to All Programs

5.

Great map update for the Garmin series if yours didn't come with unlimited maps. I really enjoy this ability to use maps whenever I need to, and whenever I want to.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously overpriced
You can get a new Garmin GPS with Lifetime Maps for $79. So why are map updates over 90% cost of the unit itself? Going to look at a new GPS provider.
