Device maintenance
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.
19
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.
The device connects to the network, and the network is added to
the list of saved networks. The device reconnects to this network
automatically when it is within range.
2 Open the Garmin Express application.
3 Connect your device to your computer using a mini-
USB cable.
The small end of the cable connects to the mini-USB port
on your Garmin device and the large end connects to an
available USB port on your computer.
Updating Maps and Software Using a Wi‑Fi Network
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
on the Settings icon in the main menu.
2 Select Settings > 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 licence agreements, and select Accept All to
accept the agreements.
NOTE: if you do not agree with the licence terms, you can
select Reject. This stops the update process. You cannot
install updates until you accept the licence agreements.
5 Using the included USB cable, connect the device to external
power and select Continue (Charging the Device, page 19).
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 cancelled 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.
1 If you do not have the Garmin Express application installed
on your computer, go to garmin.com/express and follow the
on-screen instructions to install it (Installing Garmin Express,
page 20).

mode, select Continue.
5 In the Garmin Express application, click Add a Device.
The Garmin Express application searches for your device
and displays the device name and serial number.
6 Click Add Device and follow the on-screen instructions to
add your device to the Garmin Express application.
When setup is complete, the Garmin Express application
displays the updates available for your device.
7 Select an option:
• To install all available updates, click Install All.
• To install a specific update, click View Details and click
Install next to the update you want.
The Garmin Express application downloads and installs the
updates onto your device. Map updates are very large and
this process may take a long time on slower internet
connections.
NOTE: if a map update is too large for the internal storage of
the device, the software may prompt you to install a microSD
card in your device to add storage space (Installing a
memory card for maps and data, page 22).
8 Follow the on-screen instructions during the update process
to finish installing updates.
For example, during the update process, the Garmin Express
application may instruct you to disconnect and reconnect
your device.
