I have a Garmin Nuvi260W. How long does it take for new roads to appear on updates/downloads


Navteq, who make the maps for Garmin and many other satnav makers, updates maps every 3 months or so. If they have been told of a new road it will generally appear on the next update unless it's reported too close to the release date. While most new roads are reported to them by the authorities you can report them yourself if you think it should have appeared on the maps by now.

If you want to report a new road or a map error you can do so at http://mapreporter.navteq.com/
There's a guide on how to do this on the left hand side of the site which can be downloaded.

Can I upload new maps (europe, Mexico, Puerto Rico, etc) to my Garmin nüvi 265W? It only comes with US Map and I want to make sure I can use it when I travel


Yes, you can go to Garmin.com and purchase additional maps to use on your Nuvi. These can be purchased either as CDs or on individual SD cards inserted into your unit.

I am trying to download an update on my Garmin but I get the response, " Your device does not have the recommended space for the region you selected." I am just needed the US. How can I make more space...


Hi Jwatkins99,

Depending upon the model of your Garmin, these tips should still apply. If your unit uses SD cards for maps, try deleting all other country maps, including Canada and Mexico, if you don't plan on going there. You should do a backup of the SD card data if possible. Use the computer for this. I usually backup the maps then delete some of the larger maps on the opposite coast or side of the country...if I don't plan on visits soon.

If you have external data in your units main memory, try clearing some of that out using your USB hookup to your computer. If your maps are on the main memory, be careful not to get into those Folders (Directories to us Nerds) and inadverently delete the software programming for the GPS unit.

Also, if you're using SD cards, your unit may allow you to use something larger than a 2-4 GB card. Then you should have plenty of memory.

Let me know if this helps. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

I can't get an update on my nuvi gps 200 for maps, even the map of Mexico.


the Nuvi 200 has an extremely small memory, less than 1gb. The US maps for the nuvi 200 only include the lower 48 for that reason. Not sure how large the map file is for Mexico but your only safe option is to contact Garmin direct.

My nuvi260w wont take new update???


Your software is old. You need to update and you must use Garmin's WebUpdater. It free. Go here:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime "maps" you may have to pay for current maps.

Going to Mexico and my garmin will not display it.


There are a variety of Garmin® GPS devices that come preloaded with mapping not just for the United States but also for Europe and Mexico. Any nuvi® that has 70 in the model number will have preloaded mapping for North America and Europe.

Example: nuvi 270, nuvi 370, nuvi 670, nuvi 770

Also, some specialty models will have preloaded mapping for North America and Mexico. These units include the nuvi 200 Mexico (p/n 010-00621-2A) and the Nuvi 260W Mexico (p/n 010-00656-37).

To obtain Mexico maps, go to this link:

Garmin nuvi download


You have to purchase the map upgrades from Garmin via DVD, I found a reputable vendor on ebay that was a little cheaper than garmin and alot cheaper than best buy.
