PRODUCT INFORMATION

1. Why do I need to buy a new map update?
In your neighborhood and around the world, roads, streets and highways are constantly changing. NAVTEQ's regular updates include critical, fresh details about the road network. With a new map update you can know that you have the latest information available for your GPS navigation system, providing you with more-accurate routing and a more enjoyable navigation experience.

2. How often are new map updates released?
Updates are regularly available. Register with us and we will notify you each time we release an update.

3. My map does not contain a road that I know exists. How can I report this?
We make every effort to provide maps that are an accurate, up-to-date reflection of your world. Our teams of geographic analysts use highly advanced technology to continually collect and verify changes to thousands of the world's roads, providing the map on your device or system is fresh, accurate and highly detailed. If your navigation system map displays a discrepancy, please use our Map Creator to notify us.

4. Am I able to buy a North American map for my European car or vice versa?
It depends on the manufacturer of your vehicle's system. We recommend that you contact us for assistance.

5. How can I purchase a replacement map?
If you have lost or damaged your map, you need to purchase a replacement. The latest map version for your navigation system is available in our web store.
