Getting new car GPS navigation maps is usually not easy. Local dealers ask quite a lot for them and even they are not always able to provide the newest versions. Finding the maps on the internet is also complicated since each car navigation system is very specific and has its own ways of installing the new maps. Sometimes it is done through DVD, sometimes through USB and sometimes in other ways. Luckily, we finally have our hands on an amazing free software that allows you to easily download free navigation maps for almost all possible car makes and models!
All maps on this program are the most recent versions of the official car manufacturer maps. You would get completely the same thing when buying from the official dealers.
The program is very simple to use. First, you select your car make, then year, then model. Alternatively, you can simply enter your car’s VIN and the program will automatically detect your current navigation system.
When the program detects the navigation system, it automatically lists all the possible maps for it. The new maps are always on top and they get included as soon as they are released (and sometimes even a month earlier than the official dealer release). We always recommend choosing the most recent version: if it is listed for your car then it means that it will work without any problems!
There is also an example image on the right that shows how your navigation system should look like. However, we have noticed that in very rare instances the images are missing or not 100% accurate so you should not completely rely on them.
When you choose the required maps, the next step is to decide which way you want to install them into the car navigation system. The most common ways are DVD and USB. So in case you choose one of them make sure you have an empty writable DVD inserted or an empty USB stick plugged in. Don’t worry, the program will warn you if you do not have enough space or there is some other problem.
When you have your USB or DVD burned, simply put it into the car and wait for instructions. Usually the car recognizes that it is a navigation disc and prompts for the next action automatically. We have already had an opportunity to test this program on several cars ranging from year 2003 up to 2016 and it has worked like a charm every time!
