What is Garmin GPS?
It is the device used in the cars for navigation, which helps us reach our destination by telling us about the places and roads we need to pass through, about the turns we need to take on our way and the time and distance remaining from the destination.
Why is updating your Garmin GPS necessary?
Suppose you are visiting a new place, where you are driving and taking turns only based on what your Garmin GPS tells you. However, suddenly, you run into a blind corner with no way forward.
The streets and routes keep changing constantly, and if you don’t keep your GPS device updated, then you are destined to be facing a lot of dead-end issues.
How to do the Garmin GPS Update?
You can update your Garmin GPS easily by connecting it to your PC. These steps need to be followed to update it:
> Connect your PC to the Computer
You’ll have to connect your Garmin GPS device to your computer before beginning the update. This is done using a mini USB cable, with which we hook the GPS to the PC and wait for the progress bar to scroll. Then you’ll need to sign in to your Garmin account.
> Install Garmin Express
Visit the Garmin Express download page and download the Garmin Express software according to your requirements.
> Access or Purchase Updates
If the Garmin Express software hasn’t already opened after installing, open it, and an internet connection is a must. Click on the “Add a Device” option and locate your GPS device. The app will search the updates and give you the list. Keep your device connected while the updates install. If you didn’t purchase the lifetime updates, you might need to purchase them this time.
> Disconnect the Device
Eject the device and unplug the USB cable, and then install the GPS back in your desired vehicle and now rest assured because the directions issued to you now will probably be correct.
