Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be assisting you today.
what is the model number of the garmin
Oh, I don't have it with me, but I think it's something like nuvi 5xx
you can download garmin map updater to update the old map data from this link
one more link to the direct download
connect the device to your computer and open this link and start the download to update the map.
run the updater it will update all the softwares and features which the garmin has.
I am wondering whether updating map will resolve the issue of very slow receiving saterlite signal? I am debating whether to buy a new map or a new device
you dont have to buy new map the update should do the job and will speed up the search as well.

Do you mean I don't have to buy new device, the map update will speed up the locating of the satelite? Garmin charges for updating maps.
you dont have to buy a new garmin the updates will speedup the device is slow because no new entries can be located or searched as per the gps location hence the device gets slow on a search mode after updating the map the locations will be more faster in search.
Great, thank you.
