Roads change and businesses often move locations. To keep up, Navman updates its GPS maps up to four times per year to ensure that you make your way safely and efficiently to your desired destination. Maps for your Navman GPS devices can be downloaded from the Navman online store or purchased on DVD. Once you have obtained your desired maps, take advantage of the NavDesk application to update your maps.

Step 1

Insert the NavDesk software DVD into your computer’s DVD drive and follow the automated installation prompts to install the software, if it is not already installed on your computer. If you don't have the DVD, you can download NavDesk software directly from the Navman website. See the Resources section for a link.

Step 2

Connect your Navman GPS unit to your computer using the USB cable that came with the device. Turn the GPS unit on.

Step 3

Launch NavDesk on your computer and install any required software updates. If updates are required, a pop-up box will notify you. Follow the prompts to download and install the updates. Once updates are complete, another pop-up tells you that new maps are available for your GPS device.

Step 4

Click “Download Now” to download the most up-to-date maps available for your device. When the download is complete, another pop-up box launches.

Step 5

Click “Transfer Now” on the pop-up box to update the maps on your device.

Step 6

Click “Finish/Close” when the update process is complete.
