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.Some versions of Garmin Map Updater incorrectly delete this file or download it with an incorrect name.You may need to manually restore or rename the file after the map update.Updating the maps on your GPS device used to be a complete pain in the butt.You'd have to order your update on CD, DVD, or SD card and wait for it to arrive in the mail.Garmin offers several ways to update your device, and some cost money, while others are free.

Garmin regularly releases software updates for all current GPS models. Software updates can fix problems with the system of your GPS, and they also sometimes add new features and functionality to the device.

Garmin Express and Garmin Map Updater include methods for installing maps to a SD card for most but not all devices.
