On my Garmin (another model but still) all changes to the installed maps are performed through the Mapsource software. You activate and deactivate what you want to have installed and then use the transfer function.

Make sure you have enough memory for the maps you need to have installed, maybe you need a little memory card like 2 GB or so, Mapsource should tell if there are any problems though.

Maybe your machine uses other software but I doubt it.

One more thing: I found it to be extremely much quicker and reliable to do the transfer directly onto the SD card through an USB adapter than through the cable, for some reason the cable slowed everything to a fault-prone crawl.

Good luck!

I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 1350 in the states and I am in Germany and it does not have any maps here for Europe


If you purchased it in the USA, it will have USA maps. If you purchase a Garmin GPS in Europe, it will have European maps. You will need to purchase additional maps for your USA unit to use it in Europe. Go to the garmin.com website and you can purchase the maps there.

I need to put a scotland map on my garmin.what do I do ?


The map of Scotland comes with the "UK and Ireland", "Western Europe" or "Europe" maps so if you buy any of the three you'll have the map of Scotland. You can buy one of the maps by going to www.garmin.com and logging into myGarmin. Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the screen and then on "Purchase more maps" Follow the prompts.

Before buying the map, if you have a satnav bought in the USA you need to check if it will work in Europe. Most of the USA garmin nuvis will not work in Europe with the exception of those that come with both European and American maps.

Can we download European maps onto our Garmin 200W for travelling with motorhome


If you bought the satnav in the USA it won't work in Europe. If you bought it in Europe you can download the maps but the full map of Europe won't fit on it. You can fit Western Europe or add and remove countries as you need them. It's probably not a satisfactory solution when traveling with a motor home. You can put the map on an SD card but the nuvi 200W has problems reading maps from SD cards of 2 Gb or more. The map of Europe would take a 4 Gb card to hold it all.

You would probably be better to buy a cheap satnav of Europe. You can get them from http://www.pixmania.ie/ie/uk/xx/617/xx/1914/23/criteresn.html?sSortInfo=Prix-ASC
if you want to buy on line or Halfords shops if you prefer to deal with someone face to face. Some of them cost less than €100 and would be near the same price as buying the map of Europe.

Or if you want a satnav that covers both the USA and Europe and will work in both the Garmin nuvi 1370 or the 2370 would do the job but costs a bit more.

I hope this answers your question.

If Ireland does not come up on your unit, then the default is the only one you can get updated for free. You can buy Europe or NoAmerica+Europe map, but it is about $50 USD.
