Bought me a Garmin, but it would not update the map online.

I was given a Garmin, and I had no problem updating the map, after I downloaded the special app necessary to transfer it from my Mac to the Garmin unit.

Did you try and update it online?

I don't know why the navigation company would need to download a program, just to update maps.

How else could they do it?

Your computer can download the map files from TomTom, but once those files are on your computer, how do you expect them to get transferred to your device?

(Who has since given away the Garmin; I now use the maps app on my phone.)
