I paid for a costa rica map thru Navsat. I need to download it to my Garmin. ow do I do that?


Typically downloaded maps can simply be installed by placing the downloaded file in a certain directory on your supplementary memory - in this case a micro-SD card. You can either plug your Garmin into your computer with a USB cable or use a SD card slot to do this.
You want to place the (unzipped) gmapsupp.img file under e.g. E:\Garmin\ after backing up any data on the storage device you are writing to. If its a new SD card you will need to create that folder.

You can also save yourself some money by downloading free maps here: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/

Just purchaded and recieved world map cd>


Begin installing it to the satnav. The world map will not all fit on a nuvi 255 so when installing it will ask you to select the part you want to install. It will show you the full map and make a suggestion which will probably be your home country. Drag your mouse to create a square aroundthe area you want, Costa Rica/Panama, and it will select that area. Click INSTALL and it will install it to your satnav. If you need to keep the map which is already on your satnav you'll need to install the new map to a memory card. Details of how to do this are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
You can get information on any other problems you should encounter installing the map at the same link.

I downloaded a Costa Rica map but I can't pull it


The only workaround for this "problem" is to connect the garmin to the PC, go to the GARMIN folder and rename the file gmapprom.img (this is the main map file) to 1gmapprom.img
reset the device and it will load the costa rica map.
when you need to use the base map again, undo the renaming.

Hello there need to find maps for my Garmin Nuvi 205W model to travel to central america (guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua....)


You should be able to find them here:
BUT first make sure your software in YOUR computer and in YOUR 205 are current!!

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.


Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

I have a nextar X3-01,bought in Canada I would


This unit only contains the maps for the United States and Canada, and it doesn't appear to have any more maps available for it. You could call the manufacturer, but it looks like there aren`t any maps for Costa Rica for this device.

Can an SD card for Costa Rica be purchased to fit in the Garmin Nuvi 200W?


As far as I know an SD card is an SD card in any country. If that is what the satnav takes then it should work no problem. Hope this helps.
