    Thanks Jim,
    The problem is I can't see the second map. All  I can see is the preloaded one...The other one is downloaded from IN and even it is unlocked I can't see and activate it.  Any ideas?

    i have a nuvi 760 that isn't seeing the Euro maps on sd. When I go into map info, only shows north america I can see the sd in the nuvi while connected to laptop. I'm in europe and need these maps to get around, especially with Carnival stating this week:)

Please click on the wrench symbol, then map icon and then "map info". You will see (2) maps listed with check marks next to them. Uncheck the map you do not want to use. Check mark the map you want to use. This is how you switch between maps.

    What are the file names on the SD card? It should be gmapsupp.img not gmapprom.img.

How to input an address that is in France?


Many Garmin units have a menu item that shows a list of installed maps. The main map is usually located on the GPS's internal memory. Any additional is likely found on the SD card.
When you access the menu / setup and choose maps, you will see both maps. Make sure that you uncheck the map in the main memory (USA perhaps?) and check the map that holds the area you wish to use (Europe?).
When you view the maps on the GPS next time, you should see the maps for the selected area and be prompted for locations that make sense for that area. Simply reverse the steps above to get back to the main internal maps when you return.
I hope this helps!

I bought the europe sd card. If I insert it will I lose all the US data?


No, the US data is on the unit itself. Adding an SD card with maps only increases the number of maps your unit can handle, it doesn't replace existing maps. You'll have to go into settings to change the view to European maps.

I am traveling ion europe and have purchased a set of european maps for my nuvi 1300. i need to transfer the maps from the sd card to the nuvi 1300


If you bought your satnav in the USA don't transfer the maps to your satnav. The USA version of the satnav won't work in Europe. If you bought the satnav in Europe you should only have to plug the SD card into the satnav for it to work.

My nuvi 3760T does not have enough space to load europe map. Can I remove preloaded north america map and reload at a later date without losing it?


If you have the map downloaded from the garmin website to your computer you could remove it and replace it later. However a better option might be to download the map of Europe to your computer and install it to a micro SD card. A 4 Gb card would hold the map of Europe and you don't risk losing your North America map. You can get details of how to set up the map on your micro SD card at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
While this link is mainly about how to update your maps it has a section on setting up maps on an SD/Micro SD card also.

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.

Purchased sd card with eurpope maps for my nuvi 205 that is preloaded for north america. how do I use it?


Put the card in the slot. Go to setup and select the map. If you're outside Europe, the screen will be blank (GPS fix is outside the map area).

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

Going to Mexico and my garmin will not display it.


There are a variety of Garmin® GPS devices that come preloaded with mapping not just for the United States but also for Europe and Mexico. Any nuvi® that has 70 in the model number will have preloaded mapping for North America and Europe.

Example: nuvi 270, nuvi 370, nuvi 670, nuvi 770

Also, some specialty models will have preloaded mapping for North America and Mexico. These units include the nuvi 200 Mexico (p/n 010-00621-2A) and the Nuvi 260W Mexico (p/n 010-00656-37).

To obtain Mexico maps, go to this link:
