Hi I have a Garmin Nuvi 215W bought in South Africa. I desperately need a Europe map, as I am now living/working in the Netherlands (Holland). Very few stores stock Garmin products in Netherlands, more...


Maps of Europe for Garmin GPS devices can be purchased on line. You'll need a USB cable to connect the Garmin to your computer. Then, with the USB cable connected, go to http://www.garmin.com

On the web site, first register your product. Then look for "Support" and follow their instructions for updating your software. (Software updates are free.) After you've done that, look for "Maps" on the menu at the top of the screen. By the way, maps are huge files, so plan on the map download and installation taking several hours or maybe even overnight to update your maps even if you have a fast internet connection.

Where can i download the philippines map for my garmin nuvi 255W, including street map?


You need to have your satnav registered with garmin. Log into myGarmin and click on the myMaps tab at the top of the screen. If you don't already have a map of the Philippines click on "buy more maps" and follow the prompts. If you already have a map that you just want to update you can get details of how to update it at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
You can also get details there of how to register your satnav with garmin if you haven't already done so.

Please note that if this is not an update it's unlikely that your nuvi 255W will have enough space to hold a second map. If you're not updating or replacing a map I would advise against buying it as a second map. It is possible to install a second map to a memory card but there is a risk that it may not work. Memory cards in garmin satnavs appear to be very hit and miss. Some work and others don't for no aparent reason.

How do you update information (maps) on the nuvi


Garmin offers two kinds of updates on its website: software updates are free. Map updates are not. You'll need a USB cable to connect the Garmin to your computer. Then go to http://www.garmin.com
On the web site, first register your product. Then look for "Support" and follow their instructions for updating your software. After you've done that, look for "Maps" on the menu at the top of the screen. You can either purchase updates one at a time, or buy a lifetime (of your device) subscription. By the way, maps are huge files, so plan on it taking several hours to update your maps even with a fast internet connection.

I am trying to register my new Nuvi Garmin 1490T and get free map update. I have registered etc but am not getting the map updates required for brisbane etc.


The only time Garmin give a free map update is if a new map comes out within 60 days of your satnav first accessing satellites. To see if you are entitled to one at present go to www.garmin.com Click on the myGarmin tab at the top of the screen and log in. Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the page. Your map should be shown on this screen and also if there's a map update available. If there is an update available click on get update and follow the prompts. If it's free you won't be asked to pay. If it's not it will bring you to a screen where you'll be asked to put in your credit card details.

If there's no update available at the moment you may still be entitled to a free update when the next map update becomes available. There's usually an update in February which has not yet been released so keep an eye out for when it does.

You can find information on how to update your map at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

I tried to update my new Garmin Nuvi 255w. It now reads as follows, No detail maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot be used without them. I have a ABI and to help me even to get home is hard....


There are 2 possible reasons for this. The most likely is that the map is not selected. Go to Tools, Settings, Map and press Map Info. Is the map ticked. If not press it and it will tick. The map should then work.

The other reason is that the map may be locked. The instructions for unlocking the map are at http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/searchsupport?search_key=nuvi%20770
