The maps may just be unselected rather than gone. To select them press the spanner icon (Tools) then press Maps. At the bottom of the screen press Map Info and see if there's a map there. There should be a tick at the side of the map name. If there's not press the map name and the tick should appear. The map will then be selected and should be ok.
If you need to get a new map or map update connect your satnav to your computer. Go to www.garmin.com. If you have already registered your satnav click on myGarmin and then on myMaps. (Details on how to register are below) Your map should be shown there and if there's an update available click on GET UPDATE to download the updated map. If there's no update and you need to buy a new one click on Shop For More Maps and select the ones you want. Follow the prompts.

TO REGISTER YOUR SATNAV
Go to www.garmin.com and select your country. Click on myGarmin and then on Register Your Garmin Product. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe as you'll need them anytime you want to update your maps.

How do you download latest maps for free as i have been told it is possible ? Thanks...


It's only free to download the latest maps if a new map comes out within 60 days of your satnav first accessing satellites or if you have a satnav that comes with lifetime maps. However you can buy lifetime maps. The lifetime map of Europe costs €85 and you get updates every 4 months or so for the lifetime of the satnav.

I had to exchange my last satnav as it wasn't working. I have a 'lifetime map upgrade' & am unsure how to download it onto my new one!


If you had a lifetime map upgrade for the old satnav I'm afraid it died with the satnav. Lifetime in this case refers to the lifetime of the satnav. Unless the new satnav came with a lifetime map upgrade also you'll either have to buy one or get the shop where you exchanged the satnav to pay for one.

When you went to TOOLS did you press SETTINGS and then MAPS and at the bottom of the screen MAP INFO.

When you press map info if the maps are still installed they should appear there. If there's not a tick beside the map name then it's unselected. Pressing the map name gets it selected again and could solve the problelm.

If you do need to download the maps again it may be possible, depending on how long it's been since they were downloaded or updated. (Usually it's possible for around 6 months after they were originally downloaded.)

  • Go to www.garmin.com and click the myGarmin tab at the top of the page. Log in using your username and password.
  • Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the screen and you should see your maps displayed.
  • Under your latest update you should see in blue writing a link called DETAILS
  • Click on the link and then at the next screen click on DOWNLOAD AGAIN
When you're following the prompts you'll come to one which gives you the option to download to the Satnav, Satnav and computer or Computer. Select Computer or satnav and computer. Then if you have a problem again with the map it will be easier to install it from your computer. You can find more details on installing from your computer and indeed all about updating your map at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

If you find that your map cannot be downloaded again buying a new update, if there's one available should solve the problem.

If you find that your map is locked you can get information on unlocking it at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

If you have favourites saved to your satnav it's a good idea to back them up to your computer just in case you lose them. Details of how to do this are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r8422587-backup_restore_favourites_garmin_nuvi

Hello how can I update my Carmin nuvi 660 and download the map of new zealand ? thank you


Details of how to update your garmin satnav are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

To get a new map of NZ you need to have your satnav registered. Details of how to do so are at the above link also. When you're registered go to www.garmin.com
  • Click on the myGarmin tab
  • Log in using your username and password
  • Click on the myMaps tab
There you'll see the map installed on your satnav. On the left hand side of the screen you'll see in blue writing a link saying "Shop for new maps" and then on "View additional maps for this product"

Scroll down as far as the map of NZ and select it. Follow the prompts.
If the map you already have on your satnav is not NZ and you want to save that too it's unlikely that both will fit on your satnav. If this is the case follow the instructions, at the above link, under the heading If the map is too large to install on your satnav for downloading to your computer and installing from your computer to your memory card rather than the satnav. Be advised maps installed on memory cards will not always work on garmin nuvi satnavs particularly if the memory card is larger than 2 Gb. Please read the article at the link above before buying.

Where can I buy a map card with the United Kingdom info be bought in Canada?


Go to www.garmin.com and if you've registered your satnav log into myGarmin.
Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the page.
There you will see the maps on your satnav and you'll have the option to buy new maps.
When you're downloading the map be sure to download it to your computer and NOT your satnav. Otherwise you'll overwrite the map already on the satnav.

When it's downloaded click the windows START button and you'll find a folder called GARMIN. Click this and you'll find an item called MAPINSTALL. Use this to install the map to an SD card which you must have inserted into your satnav. It's best to use a 2Gb SD card not an SDHC. Again be sure you do not install the map to your satnav but to the memory card. You get the option of where the map will be installed during the set up process.

If you have not registered your satnav you can do so by going to www.garmin.com. Click on the drop-down arrow and select your country. Click on myGarmin and then on REGISTER YOUR GARMIN DEVICE. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe as you'll need them anytime you need to update your maps or buy new ones.
There's more information on installing maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps if you need more help.

Can i download maps of germany,switzerland and france onto my Garmin Nuvi 255 now that it already has australia and nz on it


You can, but...

You'll need to load the mapping onto a removable memory card, as your device's memory isn't large enough. Adding a memory card with additional maps really slows the machine down, painfully so. Buying the European mapping pack isn't cheap: you can buy a brand new satnav with full European (including UK and Eire) mapping preinstalled for about the same price. Click here for a current example, but there are cheaper ones if you abandon Garmin in favour of Medion or other brands.

It works out even cheaper if you sell the old satnav to fund the purchase of the new one. When you need the Oz/NZ mapping again you can do the same thing again as by then your original unit will probably have out of date maps anyway.

Please take a moment to rate my answer.
