I live in florida usa im going to israel? how do i set my garmin nuvi for roads in israel


Hello,

Unfortunately Anything below the 1xxx series will not support mapping for isreal, so you may want to upgrade to the nuvi 1310 which come pre loaded with the mapping you need.

Hope this helps!

My garmin nuvi 255 stopped showing maps...??? do i have to pay for maps every year??


No - Maps are forever unless you toss them off.
Go to GARMIN - download their Download Manager and run it. Then update the firmware. Then reboot your GARIMN and reset it.

How do we update our garmin nuvi 255


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;} You can get that FREE at Garmin here:


To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
First you have to set up an account at Garmin using the serial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmware update for free.
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.

By the way, the correct Garmin approved power OR download cables are a must!!
Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

I just purchased a Garmin nuvi 255, and the maps are inaccurate.


Just go to http://www.garmin.com There will be a registeration link. Yes I think that you will get a free mapupdate with your registeration at least they used to do that. You will need your unit serial number and model.
