Try resetting the unit. If your address or the road your driving on isn't show - try resetting the unit and then on the lower right corner click the space there. Some roads I have noticed do show and some sadly do not.

Only shows us routes not canada


I fell foul of that the other way. I have Canada maps and lent it to a friend who was going to California.

You need a map that covers Canada and it is an extra cost. The USA is in two zones, or one map does both zones.

You need to buy the Canada maps and then put it on an SD card. The map costs $84

My garmin is not showing anything but waterways and unpaved roads.


Make sure that the unit isn't set to "Off Road" in the navigation settings. "Off Road" is for hiking. Also make sure that you have a valid city navigator map that contains streets and that it is selected (check marked) on the map info screen. Otherwise you may just be using the base map which only contains major highways

Hi - I own a Garmin Nuvi 260w. Is it possible to use the SD card to download a trucker navigation road map and upload this to my Garmin Nuvi 260w? Thanks for your response.


Hello,

It is possible as long as the map is Garmin compatible.
However even with a trucker navigation map installed, the nuvi 260w will not function as a trucking GPS as the routing and IQ of the nuvi 260w does not have the capability to operate in this manner.
The nuvi 260w does not have a trucking mode to allow for the input of specific truck information like truck and trailer length and gross vehicle weight to use as factors on determining the best route for the specific truck/trailer combination.
I would recommend using a GPS specifically designed for trucking like the Garmin Dezl.

Recieved new Garmin nuvi 285WT last week. There was no user manual in the box. Could you tell me where I might find one to download and print it out.


The owner's manual is available here:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/2675_OwnersManual.pdf
or you can download it from www.garmin.com. Click on "Automotive" then "Discontinued". Go to Nuvi 285WT and click it, then, "Manuals". Hope this helps.

How do i up date the maps garman nuvi 200w/250w


The Garmin GPS are among the easiest to use and they have the most complete mapping on the market. To update the mapping, there are several versions of the software integrated into these road gps. To name a few, city navigator version 8 and City Navigator 2008. With a newer version, you have the most recently built streets, new shops, new parking lots, etc.. To update, there are several ways to proceed. First, before you update your maps, I recommend you check if there is a newer version of the maps, visit garmin and download the plugin. You can also view the maps version directly on your gps.

Garmin nuvi 360 wont unlock maps


Master reset is after you turn on the GPS put a finger on the left lower corner rightaway and then keep the finger there, wait until it shows up the "Do you really want to start up in maintainance mode"

You are not able to use others nuvi's map on your nuvi 360, as each map must match with the GPS unit ID, to find out your GPS's unit ID, go to "Setting" tab on "System", tab on " About"
