I uploaded my company on Google maps, and it created a Facebook page automatically how do I activate the page

From google maps help which you access by clicking the menu in the top left and then help, then type your question.

Add or edit business information on Maps

You could follow the instructions here : Add or Edit Business Information on Google Maps to add your location using Google Maps :
  1. Open Google Maps and make sure you're signed in.
  2. Zoom in to the map where you want to add your business.
  3. In the bottom right, click Report a problem.
  4. Click Add a missing place.
  5. Drag the marker where you business is, and add any relevant information.
  6. Click Submit.
Alternatively, I recommend that you add the place on Google Map Maker as it is better at parsing addresses, especially in India, if you are trying to add your location here : Add a place Before you add a place, check if it exists on the map. If not, follow the steps below:
  • Open Map Maker.
  • In the top left, click Add New.
  • Select Add a Place.
  • Select the Satellite view and zoom in to the appropriate location.
  • Drop the marker on top of the building where your place exists.
  • From the drop-down menu, select a category. You can also search for a category.
  • Enter the name of the place. To add multiple names, click Add more names. To add more details, click Continue. To discard your edit, click Cancel.
  • Click Save.
Note: Check if the name you choose follows the guidelines.
Map Maker might provide a list of possible duplicates. If the place you want to add is already in this list, select the duplicate item and click Continue. A P.O. box number is not a physical address.

I wa in Vancouver, and there is a new bridge that opened in june of this year. Why would the GPS not able to find it and derrect us to it, instead it was telling us to go take a ferry which is no longer...

Area maps are not drawn up every year. There is easily a several year gap before mappers get back to any given area to map any new changes since the last mapping. If that bridge was just opened, mappers wouldn't have had a chance to add it to maps, allowing it to be added to the map software so you could update your gps device. Basically, the bridge was too new for your gps to know about it's existence yet.

Adding more maps to SD Card for a Nuvi 205

You can use GMapTool program to join multiple maps in one single img file. If some maps are locked - you must write the unlock codes in the img file, using this program. Do not join two or more maps with same FID's.

Img file must be placed in "Garmin" directory on the SD memory.

Add Europe sd card to Garmin 660

No. When you plug in the SD card, the Nuvi will load the map from your SD card. Once you get to the main menu, select the wrench symbol, then the map symbol and then "map info". You should see both the US and Europe map. Make sure the Europe map is checked. You can uncheck the US map. This is how you switch between maps. The reason why you have to have the extra map on the SD card is because the Nuvi can only have one map on it's internal drive, one at a time.

However, backing up your US map is a good idea.

Good luck,
- Jim
