Updating a garmin gps
All Garmin GPS units rely on Web Updater to keep their software current.
You can find the link to download Web Updater on the “Support” section of the Garmin.
To my surprise, it still runs smoothly the moment I turned it on.
So I decided to spend some time to bring my old friend back in life.
Garmin Corporation ("Garmin") grants you a limited, non-exclusive license to use the upgrade software ("Software") in binary executable form in the normal operation of the applicable Garmin products.
Title, ownership rights, and intellectual property rights in and to the Software remain in Garmin.
Download the Web Updater application through the Garmin website.
Even my ancient GPS was quicker (till it was dropped on the floor and broke...) What speed is your Internet connection?
Some of the map updates are very large and will be slow on a slower connection, plus there may be others downloading at the same time.
The only choice is to find a relative small map that can fit in 2GB space.
Because of this, we could not install the latest 2015.10 map (2.2GB) and had to choose 2013.40 version.

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.
