Question about Garmin Nuvi 255 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I downloaded a new version of the Garmin Europe maps (2011.10 from 2010.10) but it is too large a document for my sat nav a nuvi 255. I have now only got central and eastern europe, which I want , but I have lost the uk france and belgium which I also wanted. Is there any way to download part of the update to a memory card?

    Quick fix for you, just download the maps onto two 2 gb SD cards, since from what i can see it sounds more like you ran out of memory on the SD card, not sure how big these maps are that you are trying to load up, but check the sizes of them and if you are getting to close to 2gb with the maps you have then most likely this is the problem. Hope this helps

Copy the new maps onto the SD card be sure that the card has enough space on it. ( you might need a SD Card reader ) copy the old maps onto your PC before deleting the SD card, copy all the data into the root folder of your sat nav. hope this helps

How do I convert my sat nav from europe to usa


Some Sat Navs can't convert, If it's bought & set to UK & Ireland maps, then you are stuck. 2nd thing , even if you can use Europe Maps on your Sat Nav, you still will be unable, to load USA maps.
Sat Nav not compatable, You will have to buy a NEW ONE.

If I have a new nuvi 1490 pre loaded with Europe and i want to use another map how do I do it without overwriting the preloaded map?


Go to www.garmin.com. If you haven't already registered your sat nav on the site you'll need to do so. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Write them down as you'll need them again. Once registered you'll be able to log in to My Garmin. Click on My Maps and you'll have an option to buy other maps. If there's not enough space for both maps you'll be able to select what you want.

I would like to know if I can donload maps for europe and where i can get them


Go to www.garmin.com If you haven't registered your sat nav you'll have to do that first and connect the satnav to your computer. You'll have to buy the map I'm afraid as there are no free maps for garmin satnavs. The full map of Europe is around 4 Gigabytes and will not all fit on your satnav even if you replace your home map so I would suggest just buying a map of the area of europe you want e.g. western europe and install it on an SD card. You'll have to install some of the map onto the satnav before you can install the rest of it onto the SD card i.e. select one country, so be sure you have some free space on the satnav. It takes about 3 hours to install not to mention the time to download so maybe it'd be easier to just buy a satnav with a map of europe on it.

I need help installing a map onto a gramin sat nav


No. They are refering to maps sent from the computer to the Garmin device. Maps are not transferred off the SD card to the unit. Simply insert the SD card into the device and the Garmin will read the maps from the card.
to double check follow these steps
  1. Power on the unit with the card in
  2. Press Tools
  3. Press Settings
  4. Press Map
  5. Press Info (or map info)
This page should list out both your UK and Ireland maps(old as dirt) and your new Benelux and France maps as well

Download update problem


Are you trying to update a Nuvi that already has European maps installed or are you trying to install European maps into a Nuvi that does not already have them?

If it's a map update, are you getting the error when you download the update to pc, or when you are trying to install the update to the Nuvi?

When I install US map updates into a streetpilot or Nuvi, it typically ends with a download error but the maps do in fact get updated and the new software versions are shown in the setup menus.

The Garmin rep I spoke with says that is normal.

If you are in the United States, I can get you maps, updates, and even install them for you if you wish.

Feel free to shoot me a message if you're interested.
