Congratulations on your purchase. I don't know why the salesperson wasn't a little better informed regarding the free map update though.
When you bought your gps you were indeed entitled to a free map update but there were conditions attached to the offer.
If you registered your gps within 60 days of turning it on you could get the free update. If the 60 days are not up yet, register it right now at Garmin.com and get the update. If your 60 days have passed, you will have to pay for the update.

Do a hard reset on your GPS. Download and install Garmin Express from Garmin. Plug your GPS into your computer. The software will identify your GPS and allow you to download new maps to it.

Good morning Vickie. With a device this new, I would suggest you have a conversation with the Garmin folks, e-mail or on the telephone. Here is the link: http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us click on support and make your choice.

Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device. There have been numerous fixes to the firmware to allow the Garmin 205 or acquire satellite signal faster, and to be more accurate with your location.

I hope that helps.

You are out of luck. Garmin will only talk to and assist registered owners. The registered owner has to deregister the device before a new owner register it and update the maps.
