Re: garmin nuvi

Go to the tool icon, then "Map", then "Map Info" and make sure that there's a check mark next to "City Navigator Europe" and none next to "City Navigator North America."  You can add or remove check marks simply by touching the screen where needed.
The Nüvi will then ask "What Country" first.
I had the same problem and just called tech service.  Bon voyage!

How can i update maps on my garmin nuvi 370 that i bought about 3 years back??

You can purchase map updates online from Garmin. Here's the link I use:

You'll need to connect your Garmin to your computer with a USB cable. Then go to the Garmin web site and follow their directions. You can buy a single update, or buy a "lifetime" (of the device) subscription to map updates.

Can i download maps of germany,switzerland and france onto my Garmin Nuvi 255 now that it already has australia and nz on it

You can, but...

You'll need to load the mapping onto a removable memory card, as your device's memory isn't large enough. Adding a memory card with additional maps really slows the machine down, painfully so. Buying the European mapping pack isn't cheap: you can buy a brand new satnav with full European (including UK and Eire) mapping preinstalled for about the same price. Click here for a current example, but there are cheaper ones if you abandon Garmin in favour of Medion or other brands.

It works out even cheaper if you sell the old satnav to fund the purchase of the new one. When you need the Oz/NZ mapping again you can do the same thing again as by then your original unit will probably have out of date maps anyway.

Download update problem

Are you trying to update a Nuvi that already has European maps installed or are you trying to install European maps into a Nuvi that does not already have them?

If it's a map update, are you getting the error when you download the update to pc, or when you are trying to install the update to the Nuvi?

When I install US map updates into a streetpilot or Nuvi, it typically ends with a download error but the maps do in fact get updated and the new software versions are shown in the setup menus.

The Garmin rep I spoke with says that is normal.

If you are in the United States, I can get you maps, updates, and even install them for you if you wish.

Feel free to shoot me a message if you're interested.

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:

You need to buy a preloaded SD card, purchase maps from Garmin and download them to a blank SD card.
