Question about Garmin GPS Devices
The Garmins are great in that all of them let you download and update your maps.
I found the manual for your model which you can get by clicking here. But I figure you didn't come here for a link you could have found yourself so here are some simple directions:
1. Click here to go to Garmin's map update site
2. It will ask for your serial number (which is usually located by the power connector)
3. Download the maps
4. Click here ; this is an extremely cool thing that Garmin released. It is a step by step tutorial on how to load the map files to your specific Garmin.
5. As it says, Download it. Right click and choose "Save Target As.." and choose a destination like your desktop. Once the download is done, just double-click the file (on your desktop or wherever) to play the tutorial.
If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask!
Hope this helps and be sure to keep us updated,

Insert the memory card into the memory card slot on Garmin
Nuvi 250 GPS device. The memory card slot is located on the left side of the
device. Push the card in until it clicks. (If you inserted a memory card that
already has pre-installed maps and files, there is no further action required.
The device will access the new maps based on the address you enter.)
Connect the Garmin GPS to the computer using the USB cable.
The mini-USB connector will need to be inserted into the rear of the Nuvi 250;
the larger end is inserted into the computer's USB port.
Locate the computer file that you want to download to the Garmin
memory card. The Nuvi 250 is capable of reading JPEG formatted images and GPX
formatted Waypoints and other mapping-related files. Right-click on it. Select
Select the "Computer" folder from the computer's
desktop Start menu. Double-click on the "Removable Disk" drive that
represents the Garmin Nuvi.
Right-click in an empty space within the drive and select
"Paste." The files have now downloaded to the memory card and will be
accessible through the Nuvi 250 menu options.
Good Luck, and do rate the solution if got help
