How do I install maps on my GPS?


First you need to have Mapinstall app on your computer

Once MapInstall is installed, to load maps:
  1. Connect the Garmin device to the computer
  2. Open the MapInstall program
    • MapInstall appears in the Start menu or Start screen on Windows
    • MapInstall appears in the Applications folder on a Mac
  3. Select the device or SD card
    • If all compatible map products installed on the computer will fit completely on the selected device, MapInstall will give options to Send Maps (Mac)/Continue (Windows) or Customize
      • Send Maps/Continue will send all the maps that will fit on the device
      • Customize will allow the selection of individual map products
      • Advanced/Partial Install will allow sections of the map products to be sent without sending the whole map product
    • If all map products installed on the computer will not fit completely on the selected device, MapInstall will give the option to Continue
      • This will allow the selection of individual map products
      • Advanced/Partial Install will allow the selection of individual sections of the map products
    • If loading the map to a SD card or an older Garmin device, MapInstall will give the option to Continue
      • MapInstall will allow the selection of individual sections of the map products - similar to the Advanced/Partial Install option
  4. Click Send Maps (Mac) / Continue (Windows)
  5. Click Confirm (Mac) / Install (Windows)
  6. Click Done (Mac) / Finish (Windows)1

The letters on my keyboard doesn't work


Dust the keyboard to remove any debris.
If that doesn't work, re-seat the keyboard. This requires disassembling much of the laptop. www.ifixit.com has great guides on how to complete this for every model of mac laptop.

Garmin nuvi 270 shuts down when connecting to mac for map update


I've had exactly the same problem. Eventually I discovered it was the SD card. Take that out and it should work fine. You can re-insert the card once the Mac has found the device.

Code p106


Using a scan tool, watch the map sensor value with the key on, engine off. Compare the Barometric reading with the MAP reading. They should be roughly equal. The voltage for the MAP sensor should read approx. 4.5 volts. Now start the engine and look for a significant drop in the MAP sensor voltage indicating the MAP sensor is working.
If the MAP reading doesn't change perform the following:
  1. With the Key on, engine off, disconnect the vacuum hose from the MAP sensor. Using a vacuum pump, pull 20 in. of vacuum on the MAP sensor. Does the voltage drop? It should. If it doesn't inspect the MAP sensor vacuum port and vacuum hose to manifold for a restriction of some kind. Repair or replace as necessary.
  2. If there are no restrictions, and the value doesn't change with vacuum, then perform the following: with the Key on and engine off and the MAP sensor unplugged, check for 5 Volts at the reference wire to the MAP sensor connector with a Digital Voltmeter. If there is none, check for reference voltage at the PCM connector. If the reference voltage is present at the PCM connector but not the MAP connector, check for open or short in the reference wire between MAP and PCM and retest.
  3. If reference voltage is present, then check for existing ground at the MAP sensor connector. If it isn't present then repair open/short in the ground circuit.
  4. If ground is present, then replace MAP sensor.

I recently purchased the Nuvi260 lifetime map update - all maps don't fit on the nuvi. I added a 4GB Sandisk and installed it in the expansion slot. The map updater doesn't allow me to use the...


To use the extra SDCARD storage for your map should work. It's a bit of a complicated area to pull this through and requires quite a bit of reading to get it done.

Basically the install can be done from a PC / Mac with the Garmin Maps installed on there. From the Mac/PC it's installed on the SDCARD in your NUVI.

Below you find the link to Garmin's forum - read the posting where it says "Reply from Garmin International". It contains a PDF with all instructions in there. Register at Garmin's forum to download the PDF - this is the same Username/Password as used with registering the Nuvi at Mygarmin.com.

Map Install to SD-card

As an extra remark - please note that installing Garmin Maps on a PC for use with Mapsource requires at least 5Gb of disk space of the C-drive. When this is a problem - here's a way around clearing disk space on a PC for Garmin Map install.

I have downloaded dota maps 6.63 and up but cant play,the maps are too big, it says whats wrong?


You probably downloaded map from some suspicious source. IceFrog(DotA creator) always take care so his map will never be too big.

Download lastest map from www.GetDota.com and copy it into your Warcraft/Maps/ folder. It will work 100% :)

Doesn´t work on mac


The logitech Download Centre doesn't provide any Mac Drivers for your device.

The best thing to do is either wait for the drivers to come out or buy another product supported by Mac
