Question about Garmin nuvi 750 GPS Receiver
My Garmin Nuvi 700 is showing weird characters at the end of the addresses. I just downloaded a map update from disc from best buy and it appeared to be sucessful, but now it shows up with these characters at the end of the addresses.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 660 lost Europe maps
Eventually managed to speak to a man at Garmin who confirmed that it was not loading any European maps because it didn't have enough spare memory to load them all. He said that he would email me instructions for freeing up sufficient memory, the email never arrived but I decided to delet all the voice languages that were no use to me and all the other language 'help' files and tried again - it worked.
At no point did I get a 'insufficiant memory' warning, which would have been very helpful, nor is there any guidance for how much memory will be required when embarking on the update. Take note Garmin...

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.

You didn't say how long you've had your device, but if you haven't registered your device at Garmin.com yet, go do that and they will then offer you a free upgrade.
Other than that, I don't think you'll find anything free. The next best thing is to buy the "nüMaps Lifetime™". I felt this was the best deal they have.

Insert the memory card into the memory card slot on Garmin
Nuvi 250 GPS device. The memory card slot is located on the left side of the
device. Push the card in until it clicks. (If you inserted a memory card that
already has pre-installed maps and files, there is no further action required.
The device will access the new maps based on the address you enter.)
Connect the Garmin GPS to the computer using the USB cable.
The mini-USB connector will need to be inserted into the rear of the Nuvi 250;
the larger end is inserted into the computer's USB port.
Locate the computer file that you want to download to the Garmin
memory card. The Nuvi 250 is capable of reading JPEG formatted images and GPX
formatted Waypoints and other mapping-related files. Right-click on it. Select
Select the "Computer" folder from the computer's
desktop Start menu. Double-click on the "Removable Disk" drive that
represents the Garmin Nuvi.
Right-click in an empty space within the drive and select
"Paste." The files have now downloaded to the memory card and will be
accessible through the Nuvi 250 menu options.
Good Luck, and do rate the solution if got help
