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.

How do I change the flash card in a Garmin Nuvi? I have been given a card with maps of Europe on it but don't know how to swap it out with the U.S. card currently in the GPS.


Hi. Save yourself the effort and do not change the flash card with another preloaded one. Your US maps are registered to your specific GPS and will work only in your GPS device and no other. Similarly the Europe maps from someone else's GPS will not work in your Nuvi.
To get the Europe maps active and working, your only option is to buy the maps (on DVD) and register them online with Garmin. This is an expensive option, but unfortunately it is the only option.

Down loading Europe on my TomTom 1/3


Yes you can I have europe and canada on mine.

just plug your tomtom into your computer and start tomtom home

On the computer screen for tomtom select ADD MAPS

Here you can select and buy the maps you need.

Once you have confirmed the purchase you will be given instructions on how to download etc

Some maps may take a little time to install to the tomtom itself.

you should also ensure there is enough space on your tomtom
If not you will have to get an SD memory card.

I use a 4gb one that still has lots of room to spare

Europe maps microSD card problems


You didn't mention where you live. If you live in the US and you have the SD card with the Europe maps plugged in, it's going to grab the Europe map first. Try going into set-up by clicking on the wrench symbol, then the maps symbol and then "map info". You should see your original map and the europe map. uncheck the europe map to get back your original map. This screen allows you to toggle between both maps.

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,

Tomtom 1 (new edition) map of europe


I think you'll find that you can download it from tomtom home, with full technical help online & on the phone.

I dont advise COPYING it from a friend as you will get a symbol appear on the screen with a tomtom SD card with a large red cross through it, indicating that the tomtom knows its not a genuine copy.
