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. Using the included USB cable, connect the device to external power.
    NOTE: A USB power adapter is not included. Go to the product page on garmin.com to purchase a power adapter accessory.
  2. Connect the device to a Wi‑Fi network (Connecting to a Wireless Network).

    While connected to a Wi‑Fi network, the device checks for available updates automatically and displays a notification when an update is available.

  3. Select an option:
    • When an update notification appears, swipe down from the top of the screen, and select An update is available..

    • To manually check for updates, select Settings > Updates.

    The device displays available map and software updates. When an update is available, Update Available appears below Map or Software.

  4. Select an option:
    • To install all available updates, select Download.

    • To install only map updates, select Map.

    • To install only software updates, select Software.

  5. If necessary, 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.
  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.
