First, you will need the Mapsource program to transfer maps to your Garmin GPS. Secondly, the maps you've downloaded will need to be Garmin-compatible. There are third-party Garmin-compatible maps out there. What maps have you downloaded, and maybe we can walk you through this?

You must have the three cds that came with the gps.You must download the program on your pc. Then click on the program it will walk you thru the precedure.It will tell you when to connect the gps to your computer via the usb port.

I downloaded newmaplifetime updates on a1GB laptop how long will it take to load my navi 250W will it download our will i need more GBs

When you connect the Garmin GPS to your computer your computer should recognize the unit as a removable drive. You can therefore get a display of how much storage the GPS has overall, and how much of it is free. There should be a folder on the GPS named Maps. When you copy the new map information to your GPS the system should ask you if you want to overwrite the existing files on your GPS. By answering Yes, the overwrite will take place and you should be okay for space.

When I update my Garmin I normally copy the old map information onto a folder on my computer first. That way if something goes wrong when you are installing the new map, you still have a copy of the old information which you can then put back on your GPS. I find that the copying process is slow when I use my laptop to update the map info. That could be because my laptop is old enough that it probably has the older USB 1.0 connections. If your computer uses the newer USB 2.0 then the copy process should be quicker.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

Tomtom One T Europe version 3

You can back up all your current maps and install North American maps for Florida using TomTom Home. You can switch back to European maps when you get back to the UK as well- I used my TomTom Home to manage my GPS and I find it can be very useful in situations like that
