Troubleshoot Free Garmin Map Update 2015 Issues
Get solutions to some most common Garmin map update issues below:
- Garmin Map update failed Error Message
This error message mainly pops-up when Garmin gets confused because there are more than one map updates available on the screen. And, in case you download incompatible updates- you’ll see an error message on screen.
Also, ensure there is only one image of map update file and the folder is named as “Garmin.”
In case, the Garmin map update still gives an error then, plug-in your GPS device in desktop and check- if the files are on its hard drive or not!
Other than this, if there is another file named “Garmin” then, remove that file (because this is where the conflict is occurring).

For any other Garmin map update issue, make sure you first delete the old map update image file in Garmin folder because the old file sometimes, contains information that would put the map image into different languages.
