Sounds like the tech support rep you talked to didn't even know his own device since the device uses Tele Atlas maps, not NAVTEQ. I'd call back asking to speak with a service manager who is more knowledgeable about returns/exchanges. As far as drivers go, those can be installed from the CD that came with the device

Hi there and welcome to fixya!

I have a Garmin as well. Updating your map is super easy. Just go to https://my.garmin.com/maps/updates.htm and enter your serial number. They will then provide you with a link to download new maps and instruction on how to install them.

Hope this helps!

If you have any more questions do not hesitate to ask and have a happy holiday,

SOURCE: Nextar X3-03

Solution #1 is incorrect. Just bought on of these units at K-Mart the other day. The X3-03 uses NAVTEQ maps, it's even mentioned in the owners manual. Plus there is no CD software that comes with the unit. Plugging the unit into any PC just makes the PC make connect and disconnect alert sounds repeatedly until the unit is unplugged from the USB port. It never even asks where the driver files are. 
I to contacted Nextar through email and asked about updates to the unit and maps. This was their response:
========================== Dear Valued Nextar Customer,

SOURCE: Garmin nuvi 200w can't update all 49 lower states

OK, I just finally am getting through all of this myself.

First, the bad news. You cannot load all of the lower 49 states onto your Garmin 200W as-is. The map file is over 1GB and the 200W only has 991MBs of memory.

So, go out and get yourself a SD card. I got a 2GB card at OfficeDepot for $8. It was at the counter, not back with the other cards they carry (Note: The speed showed as 60x. The slightly more expensive ones, $12-$15, may be faster, like 150x.)

You'll also need to get yourself MapInstall, available from the Garmin site. BUT, don't try to use this right away, a mistake I made. If you do, you basically get a message that MapInstall can't be installed because it's not already installed. Seriously.

BUT, MapInstall GETS installed, or whatever, when you load your 2010 maps (or partial maps), so after you do your partial install, THEN you can install the MapInstall program. (May not be necessary, but remember, I did this out of order. Look for a "Garmin" folder under your Programs, or All Programs, and see if it's already there after you install your 2010 maps.)

Next, run MapInstall. The next mistake I made was that at the window where it finds your device, I clicked on the NEXT button. DON'T. Notice that your device is shown in a drop-down box. Click on that, and you can select your SD card for the destination.

THEN click NEXT. On my system, it appears as if it shows you what IS already on the 200W, and lets you select whatever you want to add. I put everything else available on the SD card.

I just this minute finished loading "the rest" and checked it out. Works flawlessly. I easily found a seafood restaraunt in Anchorage (Alaska was not loaded in the intitial install.)

Just remember that you have to keep the SD card in the Garmin at all times to use those maps. That really shouldn't be a problem though.

Hope this helps eveyone.

I updated my garmin nuvi255 and it only shows usa maps, now I lost all of Canada


When you update the unit you are given selections based upon how much memory is available on your unit. With each map release, the map sizes become larger. On the 2xx series, you may not have had enough memory to have both the US and Canada map, so it probably only installed the lower 48 states. You will need to install the map on an SD card in order to have both maps on the unit.

You need to navigate to the Horizon Navigation Online Shop (see Resources for the appropriate download page). Click on the Jensen manufacturer link located on the left menu pane. Choose your particular Jensen GPS model from the menu selection.

Choose the coverage area you wish to update your GPS unit with and choose to download the map updating software or have the software sent to you through the mail in DVD form. Fill out the order form information including your payment method (Visa, MasterCard or American Express are the only payment methods accepted). When you receive the updated software by either download or mail, install the software on your computer.

Follow the instruction prompts provided by the Navmate utility program with regard to updating your particular Jensen GPS unit's map software.

Hope helps.

I am updating my nuvi 200 with map update 2009 of city navigator north america nt. Canada is not loading to my gps through my computer. Looking for a solution.


when updating from the city nav update disc, it will only update the maps currently on the unit. Since Canada isnt included, it will not add it on. What you need is the Pre-programed City navigator chip for Canada. Normally retails around $59.99

Jensen GPS NVX430BT How do I activate the text to speech ?


I'm about to return my Jensen NVX430BT because apparently the maps cannot be updated! The maps installed on the unit I just received are obviously outdated and there is no support from Jensen to get them updated. Too bad, this thing has it all except good directions.

Putting maps on sd memory card


(Untried)
For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.

Must have:
1 - Street pilot C330

2 - 512mb SD card
3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice)
4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America

What to DO:

1 - connect the GPS to the computer
2 - Insert the Map update disk
3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States
(Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)

4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"

5 - Open the folder called "img"

6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)

7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"

8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)

9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)

10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)

11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.

12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.

When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.
