Lost all my SA maps on my garman nüvi 200.


Depending on how long ago you got the maps you may be able to download them again.
  1. Go to www.garmin.com and log into myGarmin.
  2. When you're logged in click on the myMaps tab
  3. There you will see the maps you bought and under them the word "Details" in small blue writing. There may also be a message to say that there's an UPDATE AVAILABLE
  4. Click on DETAILS and this will bring you to a screen where you get the option to download the maps again for a limited length of time.
If the time limit has passed your only option is to buy an update. To do this go back to where it said UPDATE AVAILABLE and click on it. Follow the prompts.

How can I update my garmin 255w for free?


Garman gives you one free update for maps - if you download them within 30 days. Otherwise you have to pay.
To find out what you need. Use the usb cord provided with the unit and plug it into your pc. Go online to the GARMIN website and download the manager. From there it is just follow the prompts. You might Email and ask GARMIN to give you one free update for maps? The firmware updates and other updates such as POI are free.

I have the garmin nuvi 260, and downloaded the update to my computer in June, then to my gps from there. Now I have a huge file on my computer. Do I need to keep it there? I bought the lifetime upgrade.


I have the lifetime upgrade too. NO you do not need to keep the maps on your computer. Get rid of it. By the way there was a new map available December 21st.
New map is Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} : NT2010.30
I'd suggest you download directly to the 260. Remember it takes about 4 hours to do.
Smart decision on the map lifetime upgrade. I've paid for mine many time over.

How do I reset the Garmin 1300t? It is locked up


turn it off and unplug it from power, then press and hold the lower right corner of the screen, then power it on. when it comes on release the power button and you will see a message similar to: do you really want to erase all your data? YES, release your finger when you see that message, then follow the on screen prompts.

Nuvi 260 question


Yes it does.
You would have to pay for the Map
Yes, it can give directions in Spanish
You'll have to download that language (free) from Garmin.
But before you do anything you must download the free Garmin UPDATER
Do that here:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.
