Rand McNally provides three types of updates: Monthly, Incremental and Annual.

Monthly updates are free and available to all users.  They are released the first week of every month and provide information on long term construction (30 days or greater) and also included can be new information regarding Points of Interest and speed limit data.

Incremental updates are free and available to all users.  These updates are released a few times a year.  They contain slightly larger files with map data. 

Both Monthly and Incremental updates can be downloaded via your mobile hotspot.  They are represented on the dock by an icon of:

The Annual Map update is available to users with a Lifetime Map subscription.  This updates the map database on your device with changes from new roads to vehicle restrictions. Due to the size of these updates please ensure you are connected to a strong internet connection, preferably a hard line connection with a LAN cable (cable running from the modem to the computer) or a home Wifi connection.  We do not recommend the use of a mobile hotspot to complete map updates.  This update will be represented on the dock by an icon of:
