Hello,

The way you would get it to work is you would need to download new maps for the GPS unit.

In the manual there should be instructions on how to do this

Hope this helped

Have a Great Day!

Canada maps


make sure it is installed. you probably only installed the lower 49 states. also BC is in Canada. if it is a Nuvi 40 or 50 you may have bought a lower 49 states device by that A-hole bestbuy agent swearing that it really does have canada just to make the sale.

When I go to spell a state, the screen goes immediately to the Select State Screen. It will not allow me to spell the state.


When you type a stae it will automatically show the list of states you can scroll down to check if the states is in the list or if the states is not recognize try to check the region make sure your in lower 48 states.

Putting maps on sd memory card


(Untried)
For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.

Must have:
1 - Street pilot C330

2 - 512mb SD card
3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice)
4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America

What to DO:

1 - connect the GPS to the computer
2 - Insert the Map update disk
3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States
(Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)

4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"

5 - Open the folder called "img"

6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)

7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"

8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)

9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)

10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)

11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.

12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.

When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.

Error message


The WGPX-550 doesn't support 2GB card. You can have Canada on a separate card (512MB will be big enough) and Canada includes the bordering US states
