Here is the following on my GPS. I was hoping if anyone can tell me if software needs to be upgraded. I got this for christmas, and have found that on a recent business trip, while making contacts in a new city, several businesses were no longer open. After speaking to other shop owners I was suprised to find that several stores had been gone for 2-3 years. Please review and let me know if I need to upgrade, if so how do I do it, and what will it change in the GPS. Your help is appreciated as I am new, and have attempted to contact Garmin but could not get through on two occassions, and have waited two days for email.
GARMIN C 530 INFORMATION:
Maps: City Navigator North America NT V8
Software Version: 3.30
Audio Version: 2.20
GPS SW Version 2.80
Thanks for any input, DC
You have the current version of City Navigator. New software is released by Garmin on a yearly basis although for many of the points of interest (POI) they can remain out of date as no one has reported the error. I believe Garmin released City Navigator v8 in April so I would expect the next version at that time. They do charge $75 for the update.
There have been several discussions on this topic. You can report the error to Navteq through their website (http://mapreporter.navteq.com/dur-web-external/secured/submi...).
One discussion thread is at: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/954.
If your software version is 3.30 (which is also how mine came), there is a newer version (4.10) available on Garmin's website.
I have no idea if this updates the out-of-date business information, however.
I believe that the POI's are in the City Navigator software. However, you should go to the garmin site and download the latest software for your unit.
What will change if I download the new version, or does it even matter if I do it????
Here are a few of the changes that Garmin's web site mentions are included in this update:
-Resolved Address search problems
-Resolved lock up issue when setting traffic provider
-Fixed car driving sideways problem
-Improved GPS reception in long tunnels
-Changed the safety camera alarm rate

Thanks JM. I looked at Garmin before posting here and could not find that info. So I do appreciate the link. Also, Garmin returned my emails, to night as well. They are shipping me the DVD as discussed in the other forums.
