Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
I had just come from Abu Dhabi to visit relatives who are based there. I am from the Philippines. My brother in law is a pilot for Etihad Airways and has a Garmin nuvi 200 and I was quite impressed with his unit after seeing it work and how well it helped us navigate unfamiliar streets both in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Fantastic piece of equipment; I bought one for myself (the Garmin Nuvi 200W) hoping to use it in the Philippines where I reside. Not knowing much about GPS stuff I thought it would be easy to download maps and data for the Philippines. The unit I bought was pre-loaded for the Middle East.
My problem is where can I download maps and data for use in my country-Philippines particularly the city of Metro Manila, Quezon City, Baguio City and other key cities of the Philippines.
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
SOURCE: I am updating my nuvi
when updating from the city nav update disc, it will only update the maps currently on the unit. Since Canada isnt included, it will not add it on. What you need is the Pre-programed City navigator chip for Canada. Normally retails around $59.99

She can purchase the City Navigator Australia DVD and load the Australian maps onto an SD card. Insert this into the unit and she'll then have both S Africa and Australia maps.

OK, I just finally am getting through all of this myself.
First, the bad news. You cannot load all of the lower 49 states onto your Garmin 200W as-is. The map file is over 1GB and the 200W only has 991MBs of memory.
So, go out and get yourself a SD card. I got a 2GB card at OfficeDepot for $8. It was at the counter, not back with the other cards they carry (Note: The speed showed as 60x. The slightly more expensive ones, $12-$15, may be faster, like 150x.)
You'll also need to get yourself MapInstall, available from the Garmin site. BUT, don't try to use this right away, a mistake I made. If you do, you basically get a message that MapInstall can't be installed because it's not already installed. Seriously.
BUT, MapInstall GETS installed, or whatever, when you load your 2010 maps (or partial maps), so after you do your partial install, THEN you can install the MapInstall program. (May not be necessary, but remember, I did this out of order. Look for a "Garmin" folder under your Programs, or All Programs, and see if it's already there after you install your 2010 maps.)
Next, run MapInstall. The next mistake I made was that at the window where it finds your device, I clicked on the NEXT button. DON'T. Notice that your device is shown in a drop-down box. Click on that, and you can select your SD card for the destination.
THEN click NEXT. On my system, it appears as if it shows you what IS already on the 200W, and lets you select whatever you want to add. I put everything else available on the SD card.
I just this minute finished loading "the rest" and checked it out. Works flawlessly. I easily found a seafood restaraunt in Anchorage (Alaska was not loaded in the intitial install.)
Just remember that you have to keep the SD card in the Garmin at all times to use those maps. That really shouldn't be a problem though.
Hope this helps eveyone.

with nüvi 765T, featuring lane assist. This feature guides you to the proper lane for navigation. This advanced navigator comes with premium features including 3-D building view, photo navigation, faster screen redraws, route planning, emergency and car locators and much more.
