Bear in mind that updates can be expensive – costing almost as much as you paid for the satnav in the first place - and it might be worth putting the money towards a new, better-featured satnav which will come with the latest maps.
(Plus, new satnavs almost universally have a 90-day ‘latest map guarantee’ which means that if a new version is released within three months of purchasing, you are entitled to download it and update your device for free.) There are two main ways to update maps on a satnav.
New roads and housing estates are built, existing roads can be changed from two-way to one-way streets or pedestrianised and new junctions and roundabouts are added.
