Unfortunately the Garmin Nuvi 260W lacks the capability to save a route. If you are looking for a unit with great Trip Planning (route saving) features, the new Garmin Nuvi 3790T is a great option. I am currently using one and I love it.

Cheers

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.

    Can a Garmin 260W support marine maps?


    The marine maps can be used on a Nuvi 260W but the detail ranges from very poor to none at all. The Nuvi line wasn't designed with marine maps in mind. You will can see the coastal outlines but most of the objects and depth markers will not show.

    Hi It is more important to know how to add POIs. Here is a simple tip: 

    1. Create some directory especially for download. I use the following one: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM 

    2. Download and save all CSV and BMP files to that directory. You may create any subdirectory and use it to save POIs for that category. 
    I use: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Restaurants, C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Petrol etc. 

    3. Garmin's POI Loader will find all files in these subfolders and will use them to create a category. 
    Garmin POI Loader will search through the directory C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM and will create/transfer all corresponding POIs to your connected GPS. 

    4. You can remove any POI file simply by removing it from your POI folder. and re-running the POI Loader software. This POI update procedure takes about 1-2 minutes. 

    In summary, keep your POI files updated on your PC and run POI Loader to update your GPS or SD card via any SD card reader. 

    Cheers
