You'd have to order your update on CD, DVD, or SD card and wait for it to arrive in the mail.
These days, fresh map data is often only a download away, but that doesn't make it any less of a pain in the butt.
I got an error message saying that there wasn’t enough memory! I’m scouring the net trying to figure out how to get around this.
There was some text on the Garmin website that said “In some instances, your Garmin product might not have sufficient memory remaining for you to load an update to the same map Data originally included with your Garmin product (or purchased separately, as the case may be), in which case you will need to select reduced map Data coverage for your updates.” Unfortunately, when going through the screens to download the maps, I only have one choice – full coverage of Australian and New Zealand!
And for some reason, the Garmin GPS just did not want to navigate to a specific address up there. Actually, it seemed like there were only 2 or 3 addresses on Landsdale Road!
What happened to all the other houses and businesses?

Fixed potential issue with viewing geocache descriptions in night mode. Improved map performance in densely-populated urban areas. Fixed review of individual route points through the Route Planner. Fixed occasional map display issue when using Topo Deutschland 2012 Pro or Garmin Trans Alpin 2012 Pro. Added ability to set a via point while navigating a calculated route. Fixed issue with track log naming when using Base Camp.
up it came - all the software downloaded - it gave me the latest updates...
A few years ago, I bought my Dad a Garmin Nuvi 260W GPS.
Case in point: grabbing Garmin's maps required no fewer than three software downloads and about an hour of waiting for the 2GB of map data to download and install.
