In your vehicle, find the system info page (typically listed under SETUP menu) in your navigation system. Find the software version. It will start with two letters and a combination of other alphanumeric characters. Use this to search for your vehicle in the navigation updater program. You can also simply search by model and model year.
Your Garmin navigator has now been upgraded to the latest software version. In order to make sure you are able to complete the update, you need to perform a complete update by connecting the navigator to the Internet using the Garmin Connect Mobile app or the Garmin Connect website. This will make sure the latest software is available for download and will also download all the maps needed. You can then disconnect from the Internet and perform a direct download of the updated software.
If this happens to you, contact Garmin Support and tell them that you have updated your software and provide them with the model number, system info page (if applicable) and the software version. The navigator is capable of downloading and updating itself.
Your Garmin has been successfully updated to the latest software version. This update process is automatic and will perform a direct download of the software. If you are experiencing a problem, you may want to perform a factory reset. This will ensure that you will not lose any of your data.
On your navigation computer, select the Garmin Navigation Updater (version XXXX) program. The program should automatically launch. You will have the option to update the database and the software version in your vehicle to the newest version.
Once the update is downloaded, locate the previously downloaded file on your computer. It will typically be saved in a Downloads folder on your computer. You may need to create a new folder in order for the program to find it. 827ec27edc
