Map and Software Updates
For the best navigation experience, you should keep the maps
and software on your device up to date.
Map updates provide the newest available changes to roads and
locations in the maps used by your device. Keeping maps up to
date helps your device find recently added locations and
calculate more accurate routes. Map updates are large and may
take several hours to complete.
Software updates provide changes and improvements to the
device features and operation. Software updates are small and
take a few minutes to complete.
You can update your device using two methods.
• You can connect the device to a Wi‑Fi network to update
directly on the device (recommended). This option allows you
to update your device conveniently without connecting it to a
computer.
• You can connect the device to a computer and update it
using the Garmin Express application (garmin.com/express).
This option allows you to install map data onto a memory
card if the updated maps are too large to fit on the internal
storage.
Connecting to a Wi‑Fi Network
The first time you turn on the device, it prompts you to connect
to a Wi‑Fi network and register your device. You can also
connect to a Wi‑Fi network using the settings menu.
1 Select Settings > Wireless Networks.
2 If necessary, select Wi-Fi to enable Wi‑Fi technology.
3 Select Search for Networks.
The device displays a list of nearby Wi‑Fi networks.
4 Select a network.
5 If necessary, enter the password for the network, and select
Done.

NOTICE
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, page 20).
While connected to a Wi‑Fi network, the device checks for
available updates. When an update is available, appears

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, page 20).
For the best results, a USB wall charger that provides at least
1 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.
Updating Maps and Software with Garmin Express
You can use the Garmin Express application to download and
install the latest map and software updates for your device.

The Smartphone Link app affects the battery
charge level on my smartphone
The Smartphone Link app uses Bluetooth wireless technology to
send data to and receive data from your device. It is normal for
an active Bluetooth connection to consume some battery power.
The app also periodically checks for updates to available
services, which may consume additional battery power.
You can change the battery usage settings in the Smartphone
Link app to reduce the amount of battery power the app uses.
1 From the Smartphone Link app on your smartphone, select
.
2 Scroll to the Battery Usage section, and select Settings.
3 Select one or more options:
• Clear the Bluetooth Auto-Connect check box.
Disabling this option may save a small amount of battery
power, but it prevents the app from connecting to your
Garmin DriveTrack device automatically. While this option
is disabled, you must select from the Smartphone Link
main menu each time you want to connect your device to
Smartphone Link.
• Clear the Live Services Check check box.
