Joyce, I did this yesterday with no problem on my new 250W. I connected the device to the computer first, and then followed the instructions on mygarmin.com. It took a long time (more than an hour) to update the maps, but it worked. By the way, I had to register the product first in order to get going on this.

Where may I update my garmin nuvi 250w for free?


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.

My Garmin is telling me to get map updates. I do not know how to do this. I have gone to the web sight and there is so many sales places that I don't know witch one to use. Can you help me to do this?...


You can purchase map updates on CD at your local GPS retailer. If you do not want to do this, go to www.garmin.com. Go to the tab at the top of the site that says "Products". It will drop a menu. Click on, "On the Road". On the next page, click, "Automotive." Since the Nuvi 250W is discontinued, click that on the left side of the page. Then scroll to the Nuvi 250W and click it. Click the "Map" tab and then click on "View map updates for this product." Then click on the appropriate update.
