Depending on the model and when your GPS was manufactured you may qualify for a free map upgrade within 30 days of purchase. To determine your eligibility you will require a compatible GPS and Content Manager. Content Manager is available free on MagellanGPS.com under the Products -> Vehicle Navigation section. Follow the steps below once Content manager is installed:
Download and install Content Manager on your computer.
Turn on your GPS. Wait for the menu to appear and connect to your Computer using the USB cable provided. (
