Question about Garmin Nuvi 265WT 43Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with 3 Year Extended Warranty Traffic Receiver

1 Answer

Hi! I bought Garmin 265W sat nav with full EU mapping. Are the EU maps preloaded or do I have to download them from the internet myself? There was nothing in the pack (apart of course charger, nav unit, USB). Sorry if the question is stupid but it's my first nav, thanks for your reply, regards, Joanna

The maps are preloaded. If you want to see what maps are on it press TOOLS (the spanner symbol)
Then press SETTINGS (or LOCALE if your model does not have SETTINGS)
Then press MAPS
Then press MAP INFO
The name of the map installed on your satnav should be shown there

Had my Garmin sat Nav for some time, can I find out if full price was paid as it was a present?


Hi,

You can use this google shopping link to determine which (by model) is your gps. This will help you determine the value.

https://www.google.com/search?q=GARMIN+SAT+NAVIGATOR&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#q=GARMIN+SAT+NAVIGATOR&tbm=shop

there should be an option on the gPS for Apps.

I hope this is helpful for you.

How do I convert my sat nav from europe to usa


Some Sat Navs can't convert, If it's bought & set to UK & Ireland maps, then you are stuck. 2nd thing , even if you can use Europe Maps on your Sat Nav, you still will be unable, to load USA maps.
Sat Nav not compatable, You will have to buy a NEW ONE.

I formatted my garmin sat nav which deleted everything off they sat nav how do i reload all new maps back on it. I downloaded all they new maps but can t get them to go on sat nav now


If you formatted it while it was attached to your computer, this means you've also deleted all the unit's software plus the maps. You'll need to send it in to Garmin to restore the original software, and there will probably be a service charge for this.

I WAS GIVEN THE SAT NAV, BUT HOW DO I CHANGE IT BACK TO UK FROM THE MAPS OF THE USA...THANK YOU..ROB


This unit comes preloaded with maps for the region in which it was sold. It does NOT contain maps for the rest of the world (unless you purchase specific maps from Garmin). If you were given a C340 preloaded with maps of the US and you want to use it in the UK, maps for the UK must be purchased (if they have not been already) from Garmin. They can be found at www.garmin.com or your local GPS retailer.

If I have a new nuvi 1490 pre loaded with Europe and i want to use another map how do I do it without overwriting the preloaded map?


Go to www.garmin.com. If you haven't already registered your sat nav on the site you'll need to do so. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Write them down as you'll need them again. Once registered you'll be able to log in to My Garmin. Click on My Maps and you'll have an option to buy other maps. If there's not enough space for both maps you'll be able to select what you want.

Garmin nuvi 1300 Query


Usually they come preloaded with some maps and you purchase additional ones. Check the manual that came with it or the box and that should tell you which ones it has. Generally speaking a basic unit bought in the UK will come with UK & Ireland preloaded, more expensive unit may have UK, Ireland & Europe and the most expensive may have all three plus USA. It's unlikely you will have 'lost' your USA map. The unit should have a 'drop down' menu which allows you to choose which map to load. Hope this helps!

I need help installing a map onto a gramin sat nav


No. They are refering to maps sent from the computer to the Garmin device. Maps are not transferred off the SD card to the unit. Simply insert the SD card into the device and the Garmin will read the maps from the card.
to double check follow these steps
  1. Power on the unit with the card in
  2. Press Tools
  3. Press Settings
  4. Press Map
  5. Press Info (or map info)
This page should list out both your UK and Ireland maps(old as dirt) and your new Benelux and France maps as well

If you bought it new, contact Garmin and they should be able to look up your registered unit ID, and send you a replacement CD with the mapping software.
