Tw auto updating maps

So, the new firmware probably never gets tested at all except by the owners. I have had so many problems trying any new firmware from Garmin for the discontinued 750 that I concluded that Garmin's software group does not own any 750 units anymore.

So, the new firmware probably never gets tested at all except by the owners. Well, one week ago, on May 14, 2012 I installed the latest firmware 5.3 on both of my nuvi 750 units. I have used it for a few 30 mile local trips and it seems to work well including audible red light camera warnings.

Assuming that the unit does what you want it to, then you either update the map one time for (per your post) or you get a lifetime update (lifetime of that unit).

As roads close, businesses open, or local events happen in your neighborhood, you’ll see it on Google Maps.

Keep in mind that with a bit of patience, you could find and buy a new nuvi with Lifetime maps for under 0.) Should you decide to update the map, please let us know before you start because there are things you should do before trying the map update. It may be worth the sixty-odd dollars for a Lifetime update. Garmin does release firmware updates for discontinued GPS models.

Remember that the lithium-ion battery in this unit probably will need replacement in the future. I have had so many problems trying any new firmware from Garmin for the discontinued 750 that I concluded that Garmin's software group does not own any 750 units anymore.

If one manually deletes all foreign languages and foreign voices, then it can just barely fit.

Another option is to buy a Sandisk SD card and place the maps on the SD card.
