2GB High Speed SD Card for Nuvi 255W

I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 255 W online and was told I needed a 2GB ultra high speed professonal SD Card that cost $149. Do you need an SD card for this unit and if so, what kind? Can I use the same type that I use in a digital camera As you can see, I know very little about portable gps devices and this is a first purchase for me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Yeah you can use any of the Ultra High speed SD cards usually around $25.00 on-line for a 2gig. High speed has a transfer rate of about 2MG/Sec The Ultra's are around 15MB/sec transfer rate so make sure that you get a high speed one and you'll be fine. The $6.00 ones are not what you need too slow for map displays.

Need to upgrade maps for ireland

Sd card lost frm 255w nuvi


I'm assuming your referring to the map upgrade card. If that's what you need, you will, unfortunately need to buy a new one. If that's what you need to do I'd suggest you get the lifetime map upgrade package instead. It's increased cost is modest and allows you to upgrade your maps a few times a year for the life of the unit. On the downside the upgraded map downloads take over an hour to complete with a high speed Internet connection.

My Garmin Nuvi 255w tells me that my milage is between 500-700 m[g? Why? I have my vehicle profile set at 14 mpg city, 18 hiway. Fuel cost $2.60


the garmin will not calculate mpg. The trip computer does show, speed, average speed, distance travelled, trip time, etc.

SD Compatibility


nope. The largest it'll take is 2GB SDIO-compliant SD flash media. SDHC is right out of the window with this model.

Data card for nuvi 660


No, you do not require an additional SD card for your unit in order for it to operate. Also, you can purchase ANY SD card and it will work with additional maps and POIs. They are upselling you.

It doesn't sound like you're buying from a reputable Garmin dealer. Make sure they're a Garmin dealer in case you have any problems.
