Updating navman maps
See also: Satnav reviews Of course, it’s up to you how regularly you update your satnav’s maps and different manufacturers offer different options, ranging from subscriptions for regular updates to one-time upgrades.
You might want to buy additional maps – for example upgrading from UK & Ireland to full Western Europe – so you can use your satnav on holiday.
So I'm hunting for a reliable, dedicated navigation tool.
Every GPS map update from Mio tells you of new roads and changes to old roads, making sure that you always have the best possible route to where you want to go.
Kind Regards, Navman Support I have an S50, and don't see any map upgrade available. I will not buy a new satnav unless it comes with lifetime maps, and unlikely to be a Navman.
I've had a Tom Tom and a Navman and was very disappointed with the quality and service from both companies. A better solution for us was to buy a dedicated GPS app for smart phones at a fraction of the cost of a GPS, with automatic updates as well. From the comments I've just read, think I'll give Navman a big swerve.
As long as your satnav is relatively modern (within the last five years or so), you should be able to update it.
Smaller brands such as Navigon might present a problem, but those with Tom Tom, Garmin or Navman satnavs should be fine.

And once you get there, the updated GPS map lets you find newly opened restaurants, museums and other exciting new places you wouldn’t want to miss.
