This fee is reduced to €35 if you purchased your sat-nav from us.
The benefit is that we completely remove the hassle and aggravation for you - you send us in your sat-nav with old maps and 48 hours later we return it to you, updated with the latest maps.
It is important to let this procedure complete - don't be tempted to switch on/off your device even if it looks like nothing is happening.
The software update procedure can take several minutes to complete so be patient. It is advisable not to update your sat-nav if the battery is flat, make sure it is charged. Your sat-nav may not have sufficient space for the map update.
Often (but not always), at three years the battery in the sat-navs start to deteriorate and as the lifetime map updates are not transferable to a new device, sometimes it can be more cost effective to replace the sat-nav with a new device rather than update it.
All new sat-navs now come with free lifetime map updates.

If you don't have one, you can purchase one from here. Always make sure you have the latest version of Garmin Express installed before updating your sat-nav. Unfortunately, Garmin Express does not always work.You can check this by clicking the 'cog' icon, top right hand side of the Garmin Express window and clicking on the link in the 'About Garmin Express' panel. Sometimes it has trouble recognising the devices that are connected to it.You connect your sat-nav to your PC or Mac using the USB cable that came in the box.If you have lost your USB cable you can get a replacement. Within Garmin Express, selecting 'Install All' under the 'Updates' tab is the safest option.
Even with several years of updating various models of Garmin sat-navs, I have found the experience torturous at times.
