I've purchased the North American Maps for my Garmin Nuvi 360.  Now I'm trying to download them onto my Navi and I can't seem to make it work.  Can you assist me please?

Did you purchase a preprogrammed sd card or did you get software to download into your PC?

If you are downloading and need to enter unlock codes, avoid using Garmin's unlock wizard.  I generally have better luck unlocking from their website.

The micro SD card has to be between 4-8gb. Garmin Express is used to load the South American maps. Garmin Express can be downloaded from Garmin. Once installed on your PC, plug your GPS into your PC. The program should give you the option to install the South American maps to the SD card.

I want use this nevi in erope country how can setting .thank u

If you purchased this in the USA it will have North American basemaps and detail maps (probably a version of City Navigator). To use it in Europe, you will need to purchase Europe maps from the Garmin web site and install them. I have seen Europe maps for other Garmin units, so I would anticipate that they would be available for your 265WT.

My gps is set on peru and i am in the us, the gps can not find the maps of us. thx ziv

You'll have to load the North American maps into the unit. Go to and register your unit with the site. You will then be able to purchase the north american maps and download to your unit using the Garmin updater on the site. The maps are all serialized to work with each unit ID, so a North American map on another user's Garmin will not work on yours (it is Garmin's proprietary copy protection system).

With the off, plug in your Nuvi to your computer using the supplied USB cable (you can also use a usb camera cord ).

The Unit will show a screen that your pluged in.

Now go to and register your unit. It then will give you the lastest updates.

Just bought the nuvi 1300 and tried to download the North American Update. It chokes downloading the new software, and apparently the other one is erased. i called customer support, but was on hold for...

I don't have a Nuvi 1300, only a 200 and a 215. You may want to try loading only the Continental US map. Not the whole Northern Hemisphere. It maybe that your Nuvi 1300 doesn't have enough memory to contain the entire map.
I did the same thing with my Nuvi 200 when I first got it. Was ready to drop it onto the pavement from my third floor balcony!!! Went out and bought a second Nuvi that same day, and did the same thing to it too. I was livid all weekend long.
By Monday morning I finally got with someone there at Garmin who walked me thru the process and explained that the Nuvi can't hold that much info at once. Only part of the maps.

Have a Garmin nuvi 200 with North America maps. Am downloading a map of Ireland. Will this erase my existing maps of N. America?

It will depend on how much memory you have in your Garmin. If you have maps that you want to keep then I would download those first and then add in the Ireland maps. Or wait until you leave to add in Ireland. I believe the Garmin will tell you if there isn't enough room to add in Ireland.
