Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. There is no sign of a place to download map updates on the Cobra site.I think that, in fact, you have to get your free map updates by some other mechanism or means.Have you registered your Cobra 8000 yet? I advise you to do that. And while doing so, keep a look-out for any sign of those map updates on the Cobra site pages that you have to go through to get your device registered.After that... perhaps the map updates are downloaded, not from a web page, but through the device itself. At least there's some hope there... the website certainly presents nothing that I can see.Except! for here: may not have map updates, but it's as near as I've seen on the Cobra website.

(Note: the updates on that page are actually updater software, to run on your computer with the Cobra 8000 connected to it. Presumably map updates are also processed at that time.)
