Updating Maps and Software Using a Wi‑Fi Network


Map and software updates may require the device to download large files. Regular data limits or charges from your internet service provider apply. Contact your internet service provider for more information about data limits or charges.

You can update the maps and software by connecting your device to a Wi‑Fi® network that provides access to the internet. This allows you to keep your device up to date without connecting it to a computer.

  1. Connect the device to a Wi‑Fi network (Connecting to a Wi‑Fi Network).

    While connected to a Wi‑Fi network, the device checks for available updates. When an update is available, Update available appears on the Settings icon in the main menu.

  2. Select Settings symbol > Updates.

    The device checks for available updates. When an update is available, Update Available appears below Map or Software.

  3. Select an option:
    • To install all available updates, select Install All.

    • To install only map updates, select Map > Install All.

    • To install only software updates, select Software > Install All.

  4. Read the license agreements, and select Accept All to accept the agreements.
    NOTE: If you do not agree with the license terms, you can select Reject. This stops the update process. You cannot install updates until you accept the license agreements.
  5. Using the included USB cable, connect the device to external power, and select Continue (Charging the Device).

    For the best results, a USB wall charger that provides at least 2 A power output is recommended. Many USB power adapters for smartphones, tablets, or portable media devices may be compatible.

  6. Keep the device connected to external power and within range of the Wi‑Fi network until the update process is complete.
TIP: If a map update is interrupted or canceled before it completes, your device may be missing map data. To repair missing map data, you must update the maps again using either Wi‑Fi or Garmin Express™.
