Updating Or Replacing Navdy's Offline Maps

Offline maps, from HERE, are stored on Navdy. HERE updates their maps once every quarter and we suggest you update your maps periodically to get the latest available mapping information. Additionally, if you intend to travel outside of your current country you can use our desktop app to update your Navdy with that region's offline maps.

 

Perform the steps below to update or replace your Navdy's offline maps:

 

Step 1: Download and Install Navdy Desktop App

 

Mac:

  1. Download, open, and install our desktop app from here.
  2. Move the Navdy desktop app to your Applications folder.

 

Windows/PC:

  1. Download, open, and install the desktop app from here.
  2. Save the Navdy desktop app to your computer.

 

Step 2: Launch the Desktop App & Connect Navdy

  1. Ensure the Navdy desktop app is installed and open it on your computer
  2. Connect your Navdy to your computer via a data Micro USB cable. The USB port is located on the rear of Navdy behind the display.

 

Step 3: Update Maps

  1. Select the country within the drop-down option where you’ll drive the most with Navdy
  2. Select Update Available. This will initiate the download and transfer the selected region’s maps to your Navdy.

! If your maps are already up-to-date the desktop app will present you with a View Info option instead of an Update Map option.

! The transfer may take a few hours, dependent upon your internet speed. We suggest that you perform this update while connected to a strong internet connection and let it process overnight.

Tip: If you notice some discrepancies in the maps on your Navdy and the streets you drive please use Navdy's built-in "report an issue" option within Trip Options. Reporting issues, via this channel, will create "tickets" on our developers side for us to present to HERE for improvements to their mapping system.
