You would install the maps on an SD card, or microSD card, and then inside the setup of the GPS unit, you would choose which maps you want the unit to display.

I just bought a Europe map from garmin for my nuvi 1300 and when I try to download it I get the message "insufficient Space". I have a North America map on my Garmin that I am not using at the...


Yes you do have to remove the North America map, I was just checking on the specs and they do not list that it supports a memory card so unfortunately due to the lack of available space on the solid state drive that comes built into this unit you will have to do the map switchover.

I have recently purchased nüMaps


Since you have (2) maps, North America and Europe, you will have (2) map files on the directory. They are:

gmapprom.img (North America map)
gmapprom1.img (Europe map)

Do you see both of these file names? Do you have unlock files associated with them such as:

gmapprom.unl (North America map unlock code)
gmapprom1.unl (Europe map unlock code)

These files should be 1 gigabyte or more in file size. If they are not, then they are possibly corrupted.

My nuvi 3760T does not have enough space to load europe map. Can I remove preloaded north america map and reload at a later date without losing it?


If you have the map downloaded from the garmin website to your computer you could remove it and replace it later. However a better option might be to download the map of Europe to your computer and install it to a micro SD card. A 4 Gb card would hold the map of Europe and you don't risk losing your North America map. You can get details of how to set up the map on your micro SD card at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
While this link is mainly about how to update your maps it has a section on setting up maps on an SD/Micro SD card also.

Need to up date maps


Create an account at myGarmin regsiter your unit ID number this will allow you to unlock the maps that you buy. You then have two options the first requires you to have an NT 2009 or 2008 map already installed.
nüMaps Lifetime™This will cost you £99.99 and is a on off payment Remember — this map update can only be used to update the preloaded maps that came installed on your Garmin GPS device. For example, a Garmin GPS device preloaded with North America maps only cannot be updated with a nüMaps Lifetime Europe Map Update, and vice versa. Check product compatibility. nüMaps Onetime™ This will cost you £79.99 and does not rely on having a map already installed.
The City Navigator® Europe NT comes on a DVD or you can download it.

I want t travel accross europe and do not have full addresses to enter into my garmin nuvi 250 please could you tell me how to do this Lynn


The nuvi 270 is the model that comes with pre-loaded maps of europe. The nuvi 250 only has North America. You can find the right maps on Garmin at: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/buymaps.do

You can purchase all of europe or select areas which are $50 dollars cheaper.

Going to Mexico and my garmin will not display it.


There are a variety of Garmin® GPS devices that come preloaded with mapping not just for the United States but also for Europe and Mexico. Any nuvi® that has 70 in the model number will have preloaded mapping for North America and Europe.

Example: nuvi 270, nuvi 370, nuvi 670, nuvi 770

Also, some specialty models will have preloaded mapping for North America and Mexico. These units include the nuvi 200 Mexico (p/n 010-00621-2A) and the Nuvi 260W Mexico (p/n 010-00656-37).

To obtain Mexico maps, go to this link:

Nuvi 660 MapSource


Henry,

You cannot replace American maps with European maps.  Garmin does this in order to protect the European retailers.  The European SD card eliminates the need to load the maps into the 660, however, if you need to use the card slot to store extra data such as MP3s then you might be better off buying the 670.
