I actually prefer SD card updates for their simplicity and ease of use.All new global positioning systems (GPS) come with installed maps.Determine which type of global positioning system you use.This can vary by manufacturer and the operating system installed on the GPS unit.A full map update can take as long as an hour to download and be flashed to your GPS device.You shouldn't unplug your GPS device during this time, so be sure to allot plenty of time.
Manufacturers offer updates for these maps on their individual company websites.
There is other software available for varying formats, some specific and some open for all systems to use.
The main issues in updating GPS maps are determining which system your unit uses, and choosing which update is right for you.
Here’s a peek at the changes the firm just made to its Maps app.
I wrote about this app updating confirmation in Windows 8: Updates Coming to Built-In Apps after having been speaking about (on podcasts) and writing (here and in ) for months about Microsoft’s plans to do just this. Comparing the RTM version of Maps (build 136) with the newly released version (build 222) and some changes are immediately apparent.
