SOURCE: I have inserted micro SD


When adding maps via the SD card slot they will automatically be activated, to see this go to Tools > System > Maps > "Map Info" from here you will be able to see what mapping you have on your unit.

Hope this helps!

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.

We are travelling to Europe and want to bring our 265wt along, loaded with Europe maps. Can I use the mini-USB cable and charge in the cigarette lighter of European cars?

Yes the European cars are pretty much the same as the American cars. You will be able to plug into the cigarette lighter socket and charge your satnav.

Hi i wwas trying to put a security code to my nokia 2610 but now is block and is asking me for a puk code could you please helpe with that?

found this answer on the european nokia website

You enter the PUK code, when the SIM has been locked by too many attempts at entering the PIN code for the SIM.

When the PUK code is needed, the phone will specifically ask you to enter it. If you want to trigger the PUK code request, enter the PIN code for the SIM card incorrectly a few times. There is no key press codes to trigger the PUK code prompt.

Each PUK code is specific to each SIM card, and has nothing to do with the phone itself.

And the PUK code is also not related to the phone security/lock code (the default for the security/lock code on the phone is 12345 on Nokia phones).

My Nokia N70from SFR , working with CALL IN EUROPE Sim card , I tried a MOBILIS Sim card ,it ask pin code , I put the Mobilis pin code , no result. I tried the pin code given to me by CALL in europe , no...

Pin Rejected or Sim Card Rejected ?
Of course sim card rejected otherwise you would have blocked the pin code and phone would have asked you the PUK code already but anyway !
Sim Card Rejected !
Options - There is a free unlocker
Click the link to download but you should have special cable ! It is called DKU-5

You do not have one or you could not manage to unlock ?
  1. Take your phone to a unlocker !
  2. Buy code online

Best Regards

Will not find connection

Then the phone is not compatible with the band (Frequency) used in the united states or with the SIM-cards they use in there.
You should contact an USA operator and tell him the problem: that you can use it in China and in Europe and the phone doesn't find the network in the USA.

American Tracfone Motorola C139 in Europe

I suspect that we are talking at cross purposes. Each SIm has the facility to lock/unlock; that is a security feature. Airtime providers also lock their phones, though, and that - I fear - is what you have here.

Which country are you in and which Airtime provider's SIM have you purchased? Has the SIM been activated?

I have dealt with most UK Airtime providers, Vodafone in Italy, Greece and Cyprus, plus Movistar in Spain.

What SIM card will work in Europe in the Samsung SGH-x427m

Any SIM card that is activated (not expired or cancelled) by the issuing carrier should work, assuming that your Samsung phone operates on the correct frequencies for the country you are in.

You need three things to be true for all this to work.
  1. Your phone must be unlocked. (You have this one OK)
  2. Phone must work on the frequencies for your country (I don't think your Samsung covers European frequencies, from the web sites I checked)
  3. You must have a valid SIM card, either prepaid or on a billing contract
Having said that, the price charged for your calls will vary widely from carrier to carrier. For occasional use, the cheapest thing to do is to buy a prepaid SIM that is issued in the country you are in. I would NEVER take a US SIM card to Europe and use it there unless (a) price was no object; or (b) I absolutely HAD to be reachable by others using my US phone number.

Nuvi 660 MapSource


You cannot replace American maps with European maps.  Garmin does this in order to protect the European retailers.  The European SD card eliminates the need to load the maps into the 660, however, if you need to use the card slot to store extra data such as MP3s then you might be better off buying the 670.

Can I use the iphone in Europe?

No way to unlock due to exclusive arrangement with ATT. ATT offers an international package at attractive rates and that will work in Europe.
