Hello,

I suggest you reset your GPS, to reset your gps, follow this steps, turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press Yes to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
Once the Garmin GPS unit is reset, remember to place the device outside where there is a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15 to 30 minutes in order for it to requires fix to GPS satellites. with this, this should fix the problem and you should be able to load your map..

Take care.

The micro SD card has to be between 4-8gb. Garmin Express is used to load the South American maps. Garmin Express can be downloaded from Garmin. Once installed on your PC, plug your GPS into your PC. The program should give you the option to install the South American maps to the SD card.

How can upgrade my garmin nuvi 255w gps?


Hello,

Using the Garmin WebUpdater will update the operating software.
http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Map updates subscriptions are available as lifetime or onetime updates and are registered to the map that is installed on the Nuvi.
http://www.gpscity.com/garmin-numaps-north-america-lifetime-updates.html

http://www.gpscity.com/garmin-numaps-update-city-navigator-nt-2012-north-america.html

The Nuvi 255w is an older unit and is probably due to be replaced. Once the battery dies on the unit, it can not be replaced easily.

There are a number of Garmin GPSs that come with lifetime map updates.

How do i change to the usa so that i can find an american address


You would need to have the City Navigator North American NT map installed on your gps or SD card....

To check to see if you have that map go to Tools....Settings.....Map.... on bottom of screen press Map Info...

make sure that the map you are looking for City Navigator North American has a check mark

How can i upgrade my nuvi 205


There are several updates / upgrades for the Gamin nuvi line GPS units. All come directly from the Garmin website at www.garmin.com. All the updates requires a computer with a USB port, USB cable included with the GPS and the GPS itself.

Go to:

http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

This page is the home of the Garmin WebUpdater. Follow the detailed steps to update your nuvi's firmware. It's quick, painless and best of all, free.

The next step is to update (or even change the country) street level maps to the lastest version. There are a couple of options available. A "nuMaps Onetime" purchase of a single map area (ie North America 2011, Europe 2011, etc.) for as little as $70, "nuMaps Lifetime" which for about $120, provides up to four (4) updates per year, for life of the nuvi (which is a pretty good deal!) and finally, depending on a couple of variables such as date of purchase, you might be eligible for a one time free upgrade. All three of these options are explained in detail at:

http://www.garmin.com/updatemaps/

Lastly, if you have any questions related to your nuvi, maps, firmware, or how to obtain or install them, you can telephone (or email if you wish) Garmin Customer Support for free, expert help using the link below:

Nuvi 660 -- Loading Supplemental Maps


The best price I could find in the US for the
Euope maps was about $230 -on the internet - normal retail is $299. You have to buy and use it off the SD card, so depending on how long your trip is it might be more practical renting one, unless you want to try selling the SD card after you return.

Henry,

You cannot replace American maps with European maps.  Garmin does this in order to protect the European retailers.  The European SD card eliminates the need to load the maps into the 660, however, if you need to use the card slot to store extra data such as MP3s then you might be better off buying the 670.

Downloading North American Maps


Did you purchase a preprogrammed sd card or did you get software to download into your PC?

If you are downloading and need to enter unlock codes, avoid using Garmin's unlock wizard.  I generally have better luck unlocking from their website.
