Just so you know:
Sorry, no free maps. I know I've tried. You either live with the old map or buy the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOUR Garmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 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"
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.

you can get the manual at www.garmin.com
you'll also need to get yourself a usb cable... the normal end for the computer and i believe the other end is called a mini b connector.
please take a moment to rate this solution.. thanks

SOURCE: garmin 205w nuvi cannot unlock
Ok so I decided I was going to return this thing tomorrow after hours of frustration, so I decided to get crazy with it and then figured out something that seems to have worked (will probably still exchange it for a Magellan or something other than Garmin though).
It's gonna sound crazy, but I opened up the Garmin drive on my computer (Mac, so not sure how this works on PC), and deleted everything I could see (not hidden files). EVERYTHING.
I then went ran Disk Utility and reformated the "Hard Drive" (on PC I would guess your able to do the same somehow). It still ran after that, but obviously could not find maps (since I just wiped every trace of a map away).
Next step, I ran Garmin Map Manager and transfered map for my state (AZ) (I have the latest map update saved on my computer, so I'm guessing Manager used that). Unplugged from comp, powered up, and voila! I will need to download my voices and vehicles again, but hey at least it's working again.

The downloaded map file (ex: "Garmin_RMU_CNNANT2010C.exe") contains all of North America, and you must select the correct subsection (ex: "Lower 49 States+PR") that you purchased, which is listed on your Garmin myMaps page (My.Garmin.com).
I am a GPS newbie as well and selected "all of North America" when installing my free nuvi 205 map update. A mistake that's too easy to make, esp. considering Garmin still has very little info about selecting the correct map subsection listed on their support site.
You do NOT need to re-download the huge map file, thankfully, but you must re-install (30+ min) to choose the correct map subsection.
"Bad on Garmin, IMHO for not making important details like that clear to us new owners." My thoughts exactly.
