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-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.

My gps is set on peru and i am in the us, the gps can not find the maps of us. thx ziv


You'll have to load the North American maps into the unit. Go to www.garmin.com and register your unit with the site. You will then be able to purchase the north american maps and download to your unit using the Garmin updater on the site. The maps are all serialized to work with each unit ID, so a North American map on another user's Garmin will not work on yours (it is Garmin's proprietary copy protection system).

We have a garmin nuvi 255w. We need to know what is the latest map update. Our gps has "CN North America, NT 2010.30" version on it. Is ther something newer than this.


Maps for most GPS devices are updated several times a year. Your map is from 2010 and should be updated. You can go to the garmin site and pay to download and install upgraded maps or do a google search for map upgrades and you'll find some services offering lifetime upgrades for a few dollars more than the Garmin one time upgrade. I did this and have had no problems updating the maps on my Garmin Nuvi 250.

Need a North America SD Card map for my European Garmin nüvi 255w. Where can I buy one on line


You can buy direct from Garmin via this link. You can opt for instant download, purchase of SD memory cards or DVD ROM medium. You may also be able to buy maps at some of the outdoor stores and electronics specialty shops.

If you plan on using this GPS in North America from this point on, you might want to look into purchasing a "Lifetime Maps" subscription for about $119 instead of the one-time map purchase for $79. The subscription allows you do download updated maps up to 4 times per year, for life of the GPS. Contact Garmin Support directly for more info about this option.

With the off, plug in your Nuvi to your computer using the supplied USB cable (you can also use a usb camera cord ).

The Unit will show a screen that your pluged in.

Now go to www.MyGarmin.com and register your unit. It then will give you the lastest updates.
