You will have to purchase Western and Eastern Europe maps from here. includes slovakia.
because normally map updates by nuvi depend on your region and so slovakia may not be included already unless installed by your self.

I need to put a scotland map on my garmin.what do I do ?


The map of Scotland comes with the "UK and Ireland", "Western Europe" or "Europe" maps so if you buy any of the three you'll have the map of Scotland. You can buy one of the maps by going to www.garmin.com and logging into myGarmin. Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the screen and then on "Purchase more maps" Follow the prompts.

Before buying the map, if you have a satnav bought in the USA you need to check if it will work in Europe. Most of the USA garmin nuvis will not work in Europe with the exception of those that come with both European and American maps.

Garmin is telling you to update your Map, its wants you to buy a New Map which cost around 50 or 60 dollars.....your unit will work find for now unless you need the new map 2011 it just has the newer streets and highways. Anything over 2 years old should have a newer Map..

With the gps Off

plug in your gps to your computer using a USB cable (most cameras connect to your computer with the same usb cable)

your computer with detect new hardware ( usb ) a pop up box will come up, minimise it

next

go to www.MyGarmin.com the Garmin site will detect your pluged-in unit and let your update your Map

It will say to download WebUpDater utility to transfer your map to your gps

Make sure you register your unit with Garmin at that time

Travelling to Ireland, from Canada in Sept. will ours work or is a new program needed?


If you purchased your unit in North America, it likely has maps of Canada, the US and Puerto Rico. If you are taking it outside these areas, you would need to purchase maps for the country to which you are going. Maps are available for purchase from www.garmin.com or your local GPS retailer.

I bought Garmin nuvi 250 in Thailand and it works well. However, I brought it to London and try to use it.. It always show "unable to calculate route: no roads near starting point". Moreover, the screen...


It's possible that it doesn't have a map of England. Press Tools, then press Settings then press Map. Press Map Info. This will show you the maps installed on your satnav and the map selected should have a tick beside it. If there's no map of Europe or UK on it you'll need to buy one. If there's one there but not ticked press on it and it will become selected and should work fine then.
If you need to buy a map you'll need to register the satnav if you haven't already done so.
TO REGISTER
Connect the satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com. Select your country. Click on myGarmin and then on Register Your Garmin Device. Follow the prompts. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them in a safe place as you'll probably need them again to update maps.
TO BUY NEW MAPS.
Log into myGarmin and click on myMaps.
Click on Shop fFor More Maps.
Select the one you want, UK and Ireland or W Europe would do. Follow the prompts.

Nuvi 250 will not turn on when charging.


There are two types of leads that you can buy.

The one supplied with the Garmin expects you to plug the GPS into the PC via the USB and if you use this to try and charge your Garmin in your car it will think it is connected to the PC and show the connection screen. it will charge the unit but you can't see the map.!!!

Make sure that you buy a lead specially for the Garmin for use in the car its the only type of SAT NAV that you will have this problem with.
