HOW-TO-GUIDE: How to download and install updates on the navigation device (or software)?

 

If you purchased pay update(s) and/or added free updates to the installation queue, please click on the Updates button in the menu bar on the left hand side. This is the last step to update your navigation device or software.

 

The Updates button will open a screen which shows all available updates, including:

  • items that you have purchased but not yet installed (updates or extras),
  • free updates and extras that you added to the installation queue from the Catalogue,
  • and special free updates (which are normally pay updates but your manufacturer or the Site operator provides them to you free of charge).

The list shows all available updates by region in a list and on a world map.

Simple installation

By default, all items belonging to all regions are selected for installation. If you decide to skip a region for now, uncheck the checkbox at the beginning of its table row.

After reviweing the table, click Install at the bottom of the screen to start the installation process.

After clicking on the Install button, you will be prompted to make a backup. We strongly recommend to proceed with a backup before downloading and installing updates. You may decide to skip backup at your own risk.

Depending on your PC's USB port and device capabilities (support for USB 1.1 or USB 2.0) the time needed to make a backup may vary. Please wait until the backup process is completed.

After creating a backup, Toolbox will start downloading and installing the selected updates. A double status bar shows you the progress: the one on top shows the total ratio of the job already done, and the one at the bottom shows progress with the current file. Please wait until you receive a message that the operation is completed.

Advanced options

You have several options to review the available updates in detail:

  • You can check the exact list of available contents belonging to a region by clicking the (i) icon in a table row. This merely provides information, you cannot modify the selection here.

  • You can click More... to enter the Device content manager.
    Here you can review the selected updates together with the content that you already have on your device. Clicking on a region on the map will have the same effect as clicking a button in the Action column of the table:
    • In case of a region for which updates are available, you can choose whether you want to Upgrade the region, Keep the current content or Remove all content belonging to that region entirely.
    • In case of regions without updates, you can Keep it as it is or Remove all content belonging to that region entirely.

If you choose to remove a content, you will prompted whether you want to remove it permanently or store a copy of the removed content on your PC (you can change this behaviour in Settings).

Click Apply changes... to start installing the selected updates and performing all selected actions. The installation process is then the same as in the case of simple installation.

  • You can click Advanced in the Device content manager to enter the Advanced install wizard.
    Here you can review all the selected updates together with the content that you already have on your device item by item.
    • You can sort content items by region, country or content type (such as maps, 3D landmarks, places of interest, and so on). Click any of the radio buttons at the top of the table to change the sorting criteria.
    • You can upgrade, keep or remove content items just like in the Basic install wizard. However, here you can make a choice individually for each content item, not just by region. Click the buttons in the After column (or in the title row for a group of content items) to modify the action related to a content item. If you choose to remove a content, you will prompted whether you want to remove it permanently or store a copy of the removed content on your PC (you can change this behaviour in Settings).
    • You can check the size of each content item, and in case of updates, you can see the change in size compared to the currently installed version of that content. At the bottom of the table, you can review the total change in the space occupied by all content after making the changes that you selected in the table as well as the remaining free space on the device after completing all actions.

Click Apply changes... to start installing the selected updates and performing all selected actions. The installation process is then the same as in the case of simple installation.
