Hi - I own a Garmin Nuvi 260w. Is it possible to use the SD card to download a trucker navigation road map and upload this to my Garmin Nuvi 260w? Thanks for your response.


Hello,

It is possible as long as the map is Garmin compatible.
However even with a trucker navigation map installed, the nuvi 260w will not function as a trucking GPS as the routing and IQ of the nuvi 260w does not have the capability to operate in this manner.
The nuvi 260w does not have a trucking mode to allow for the input of specific truck information like truck and trailer length and gross vehicle weight to use as factors on determining the best route for the specific truck/trailer combination.
I would recommend using a GPS specifically designed for trucking like the Garmin Dezl.

    Cannot save direcctions to my gharmin 260w


    Unfortunately the Garmin Nuvi 260W lacks the capability to save a route. If you are looking for a unit with great Trip Planning (route saving) features, the new Garmin Nuvi 3790T is a great option. I am currently using one and I love it.

    Cheers
