Garmin has updates for maps and you do that yourself at garmin site. Also depends on your unit if updates are avaible. Check with garmin.

Actually, that is a good question. I spoke with Garmin reps at a Wing Ding in Tennessee, in 2011, and was told that although Garmin would be the one releasing or at least building updates, they would not do this unless Mother Honda asked for and contracted the updates. Shortly afterwards, an update became available, but did not work well, and was replaced about five months later for everyone who had purchased it, with a copy that worked better. Since then, they have brought out more updates, but the 2006 to 2008 US and 2006 to 2010 rest of the world updates are not being released regularly, and are now probably six years out of date. The 2009 and 2010 US bikes can be brought to within about two years (meaning that the 2018 update, would give you 2016 maps) I notice you are in Egypt, and I have no idea what happens with a motorcycle there. As the previous poster mentioned, you would need to contact Garmin to find out if any updates are available for you at all.
