USA MAPS I have a Garmin Nuvi 350 with preloaded European Maps and I want to use it in America when I visit.  Can I get an unlock code to access USA maps?  Are they built into the system or will I need to purchase a SD card with preloaded Maps of USA compatible with the Garmin Nuvi 350?

You need to buy a preloaded SD card, purchase maps from Garmin and download them to a blank SD card.

I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 1350 in the states and I am in Germany and it does not have any maps here for Europe

If you purchased it in the USA, it will have USA maps. If you purchase a Garmin GPS in Europe, it will have European maps. You will need to purchase additional maps for your USA unit to use it in Europe. Go to the website and you can purchase the maps there.

I have recently purchased nüMaps

Since you have (2) maps, North America and Europe, you will have (2) map files on the directory. They are:

gmapprom.img (North America map)
gmapprom1.img (Europe map)

Do you see both of these file names? Do you have unlock files associated with them such as:

gmapprom.unl (North America map unlock code)
gmapprom1.unl (Europe map unlock code)

These files should be 1 gigabyte or more in file size. If they are not, then they are possibly corrupted.

Need to up date maps

Create an account at myGarmin regsiter your unit ID number this will allow you to unlock the maps that you buy. You then have two options the first requires you to have an NT 2009 or 2008 map already installed.
nüMaps Lifetime™This will cost you £99.99 and is a on off payment Remember — this map update can only be used to update the preloaded maps that came installed on your Garmin GPS device. For example, a Garmin GPS device preloaded with North America maps only cannot be updated with a nüMaps Lifetime Europe Map Update, and vice versa. Check product compatibility. nüMaps Onetime™ This will cost you £79.99 and does not rely on having a map already installed.
The City Navigator® Europe NT comes on a DVD or you can download it.

How to switch between maps ?

Please click on the wrench symbol, then map icon and then "map info". You will see (2) maps listed with check marks next to them. Uncheck the map you do not want to use. Check mark the map you want to use. This is how you switch between maps.

Nuvi 660 MapSource


You cannot replace American maps with European maps.  Garmin does this in order to protect the European retailers.  The European SD card eliminates the need to load the maps into the 660, however, if you need to use the card slot to store extra data such as MP3s then you might be better off buying the 670.

Garmin nuvi

Go to the tool icon, then "Map", then "Map Info" and make sure that there's a check mark next to "City Navigator Europe" and none next to "City Navigator North America."  You can add or remove check marks simply by touching the screen where needed.
The Nüvi will then ask "What Country" first.
I had the same problem and just called tech service.  Bon voyage!
