If you have the US CD the maps are on it. You will have to attach your Tomtom to a computer to change the maps.

Alternatively, you can download TomTom HOME from www.tomtom.com.

Hi,
Buy the package first from Garmin.com
SD card, download, disc, which ever.
in your Menu, touch maps, map info, tick the box when loaded on the device.
You may need unit I.D. to activate it,
it's in your tools-system-about menu
and serial number on the bottom of device.
I hope this helps
Regards.

Hi,

I would suggest you reset the unit,if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, I think its out of date and needs to be updated. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Best regards

Yes, Garmin satnavs use Navteq maps. Go to www.Navteq.com and there's a link there called Map Reporter where they take reports of map changes. I have reported several in the past and eventually they all appeared on map updates.

Why does my garmin nuvi 465t tell me to exit juction 13 onto the M27 EAST when I go to southampton docks. the lane assist is correct though but the voice and text are wrong?


It is estimated that 10–15% of the road network changes every year. There is also inevitably some human error/subjectivity in the creation of a digital map.

All of which means that maps must be constantly maintained to keep the level of map errors as low as possible. Tele Atlas has extensive survey teams constantly out surveying new roads, changed roads, POI positioning and accuracy, map errors, etc.

Each change and fix is then checked before being built into the next map release. GPS vendors predominantly use Tele Atlas maps, then compiles the map vendor release and has it error-checked

This complex and labor-intensive process can mean it is several months before a map vendor’s new release is ready and fit for use in a GPS product.


Due to the high frequency of new map releases, there’s a small chance that a new map is released between the production of a GPS unit and the date that it is sold in retail.

If you've found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer. Thanks!

I need help on changing to the us My tom tom is on a different country


You will need to Purchase and load required US MAP(s) via 'TOM TOM HOME'.
When the new MAPs are registred to your device, you can then use the 'Change preference' -> manage Maps -> Switch Map -> then select the appropriate 'registred' US MAP.

Please note: always backup your GPS via 'Tom Tom Home' backup utilities first!
If you have limited storage, you may need to delete your existing map(s), that were previously back-up, before loading the US Maps

Can I remove the preloaded maps in my Garmin nuvi 255w and install other garmin maps


To my knowledge you cant remove preloaded maps,but word of advice when purchasing other maps,get them on a Memory Card instead of preloading on your GPS,reason being,if you deciede on a different GPS in the furture you can then use the same maps which are on the Memory Card.

My Garmin nuvi does not show rerouting of roads.


a map update "may or may not" fix the problem, because it depends on the date of the map updates and when the construction took place.

you can go HERE and download and install the web updater and follow the instructions.

it will tell you if there is an update for your maps

let me know if you need further help

I Would like to update my Garminc330. I have a glitch in the map (tells me address doesnot exist, when I know it does)


Garmin puts out map updates on a regular basis. You must purchase these. The GPS comes loaded with maps that are current as of the date of production of the unit. It cannot "know" when new roads are paved and new subdivision are created without being "told" via map updates. The unit knows where it is in relation to the maps loaded on it by receiving signals from the GPS satellites in orbit. If things change, the maps must be changed in order for the unit to give you correct directions.
