How to update your Garmin Software


For several reasons, it is crucial to ensure that you are using the most recent software version. First, the latest software version will ensure your device runs smoothly. You can also ensure that your device is up-to-date to receive all the latest tools.

You can search the internet by entering your device model and name. Then, check the results at the Garmin official website. Once you find it, you can compare the results with the version that you have on your device to determine if it is the most recent or if it needs to be downloaded.

Automated Software Updates


If you don't have a Garmin account yet, create one, download Garmin Connect and pair your device with your smartphone. Once you have connected your device to the Garmin Connect app your software should automatically be updated by default. This means that your Garmin device will automatically receive any new updates.
