Garmin MapInstall is a vital program for anyone who uses a Garmin GPS device. The standard way to update a GPS device can be a very technical process. So technical in fact that most motorist would rather use outdated maps that haven't been updated since they bought their GPS. In the most extreme cases, some consumers just buy the latest GPS to avoid updating the software altogether. Well, kiss all that goodbye! Well, as long as you are using Garmin.
Garmin MapInstall is a completely free software that the company decided to release for its customer base. After thousands of specific feedback from customers, Garmin decided to make the process of updating their GPS devices much easier. The new software takes all the technical conversion methods that the standard update process has and has changed it to a simple drag and drop method on your computer. No map is too big for Garmin MapInstall. You can update multiple countries without restriction and the software itself is consistently updated so users aren't left out in the cold.
Garmin MapInstall is a software that allows you to seamlessly update your maps on your Garmin devices.
While the new software is great it does have its setback. The most obvious one is that this program does not work on other GPS devices that are not Garmin! Don't try to install this program or you could potentially ruin the device completely. Garmin MapInstall is specifically designed to work with Garmin GPS devices, so consider yourself warned. Having said that, this will be the best update to your Garmin device. Not only does it practically guarantees the longevity of your device but it also saves you a lot of headaches when it comes to regular updates. The only other complaint I have about the software is that Garmin doesn't actually recommend the software and you have to search for it.
