I was trying to find out if I could update my map with any GPS map from Navteq or if they are model number specific. My friend broke his GPS but still has the software (different manufacturer for the equipment though). He will let me use his but I don't want to try to load the maps and end up destroying the unit.

Well I got bad news and bad news.... you can't use any software but what came with your unit. And it looks like what you have is what you have no updates.. here is an article about it

http://www.gpsreview.net/lg-ln735/

While looking this most of what I found was from 2008. For electonics that is very old... before I buy anything even if it is a point and shoot camera I always check the reviews for that product......as I read the review with what we know now about GPS it made me mad...

To add to your problem I read a few months ago that GPS as a stand alone unit are getting to be very outdated because the new "smart phones" have GPS that can constantly be updated.....

I use Garmin, but there are a lot of people at FixYa who use the GPS you have. Check this link to see where other people have been getting their maps from: http://www.fixya.com/search/p689215-lg_ln735_gps/maps_updates

I looked at this site and the best offer I could see was maybe a 2009 update that seemed like quite a hassle to get and took over 3 and a half hours to download... Then will it work? Don't know that either...I still think that you might be out of luck... 2009 is still old as far as that goes.
