You didn't mention where you live. If you live in the US and you have the SD card with the Europe maps plugged in, it's going to grab the Europe map first. Try going into set-up by clicking on the wrench symbol, then the maps symbol and then "map info". You should see your original map and the europe map. uncheck the europe map to get back your original map. This screen allows you to toggle between both maps.

I brought my Garmin 1260 that I used to use in LA to Florence Italy. After putting the small card for Europe to the little slot, I have problem. I can find the location no problem but satellite is not...


I'm afraid the 1260 that is made for USA will not work in Europe. The only satnavs that work in both Europe and USA are those that have both maps of Europe and USA pre-installed.

Can we download European maps onto our Garmin 200W for travelling with motorhome


If you bought the satnav in the USA it won't work in Europe. If you bought it in Europe you can download the maps but the full map of Europe won't fit on it. You can fit Western Europe or add and remove countries as you need them. It's probably not a satisfactory solution when traveling with a motor home. You can put the map on an SD card but the nuvi 200W has problems reading maps from SD cards of 2 Gb or more. The map of Europe would take a 4 Gb card to hold it all.

You would probably be better to buy a cheap satnav of Europe. You can get them from http://www.pixmania.ie/ie/uk/xx/617/xx/1914/23/criteresn.html?sSortInfo=Prix-ASC
if you want to buy on line or Halfords shops if you prefer to deal with someone face to face. Some of them cost less than €100 and would be near the same price as buying the map of Europe.

Or if you want a satnav that covers both the USA and Europe and will work in both the Garmin nuvi 1370 or the 2370 would do the job but costs a bit more.

I hope this answers your question.

I have downloaded a map of Europe from the Garmin site into my microSD card of my garmin nuvi 1350. When I tried to check the map of Europe, it is not listed in the maps in info. How do I tick the map of...


You need to download the map to your computer first and then use "map install" to set it up on your micro SD card. You can get details of how to do this at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
Skip to the section on "If the map is too large to install to your satnav"

If you need to download the map again you can do so by logging into "myGarmin" Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the page. There you'll see the map name and under it in blue writing DETAILS. Click on "DETAILS" and it will bring you to a screen where you get the option to download it again. I hope this solves your problem.

Need to upgrade maps for ireland


Hello,

The easiest way to do so is purchase mapping on a pre-loaded microSD/SD card and insert them into the unit. I recommend getting all of europe for the cost here is a link http://www.gpscity.ca/garmin-microsd-city-navigator-europe-nt-2011-card-with-adapter.html.


Hope this helps!

How do I change the flash card in a Garmin Nuvi? I have been given a card with maps of Europe on it but don't know how to swap it out with the U.S. card currently in the GPS.


Hi. Save yourself the effort and do not change the flash card with another preloaded one. Your US maps are registered to your specific GPS and will work only in your GPS device and no other. Similarly the Europe maps from someone else's GPS will not work in your Nuvi.
To get the Europe maps active and working, your only option is to buy the maps (on DVD) and register them online with Garmin. This is an expensive option, but unfortunately it is the only option.

Add Europe sd card to Garmin 660


No. When you plug in the SD card, the Nuvi will load the map from your SD card. Once you get to the main menu, select the wrench symbol, then the map symbol and then "map info". You should see both the US and Europe map. Make sure the Europe map is checked. You can uncheck the US map. This is how you switch between maps. The reason why you have to have the extra map on the SD card is because the Nuvi can only have one map on it's internal drive, one at a time.

However, backing up your US map is a good idea.

Good luck,
- Jim

I would like to install a north america maps to my Garmin bought in italy withy europe maps


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.
