I dropped off my Garmin and lost my sd card so how can i get a replace ment with maps? Thanks Godfrey

In case the Garmin Map came with lifetime updates or was bought 90 days ago - it's possible to download the map again to a PC / Mac for use with Mapsource or to upload it to a compatible Garmin GPS.

For this the Map license code printed on the SDCARD package box is required.

Downloading a Garmin Map is a large 3Gb download and requires a stable and fast internet connection - installing it onto a compatible Garmin GPS requires a least 5Gb of space on the boot drive. (On a PC the C-drive)

To download the latest unitsoftware visit Garmin website: First you have to set up an account at Garminusing the serial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmwareupdates for free. After installing WebUpdater once from the Garminwebsite, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connectyour compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from yourcomputer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start","Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater" REMEMBER: It takes hours todo a complete a map update.
You bought the Lifetime maps so you can download 4 times per year
By the way, the correct Garmin approved powerOR download cables are a must!! Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.
