Updating car GPS unit for free?

Northern Wish

Recommended Posts

My Garmin Nuvi 255 GPS is getting a little long in the tooth and needs map updates, but there is no way in hell I am paying $89 for lifetime map updates.

I have an SD slot in the GPS and can bittorrent: is there any way to download and then upload 'new map info' to this device?

I'm sure I am not the only one who would like to upgrade their maps.....

I asked my brother-in-law since he seems to have a good grasp on this stuff and updates his. Although he said he has a different gps then yours, he did send me this link. Includes torrent links and other links for required tools. I can't vouche for this, but maybe it'll help or at least point you in the right direction.
