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.

Go to Garmin and download and install Garmin Express, Plug your GPS into your PC. The GPS should power on and Garmin Express should identify it and tell you of any updates. If there is a software update available, that should solve your problem.

How instal maps on sd memori card for garmin nuvi 250


Hello

Insert the memory card into the memory card slot on Garmin Nuvi 250 GPS device. The memory card slot is located on the left side of the device. Push the card in until it clicks. (If you inserted a memory card that already has pre-installed maps and files, there is no further action required. The device will access the new maps based on the address you enter.)


Connect the Garmin GPS to the computer using the USB cable. The mini-USB connector will need to be inserted into the rear of the Nuvi 250; the larger end is inserted into the computer's USB port.


Locate the computer file that you want to download to the Garmin memory card. The Nuvi 250 is capable of reading JPEG formatted images and GPX formatted Waypoints and other mapping-related files. Right-click on it. Select "Copy."


Select the "Computer" folder from the computer's desktop Start menu. Double-click on the "Removable Disk" drive that represents the Garmin Nuvi.


Right-click in an empty space within the drive and select "Paste." The files have now downloaded to the memory card and will be accessible through the Nuvi 250 menu options.


Good Luck, and do rate the solution if got help

How do i update my garmin nuvi 250? it tells me it needs to be updated.


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

1300 nuvi screen comes up loading maps and stops


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

I purchased the Garmin nuvi 250 GPS system last year but I'm unable to successfully download the USB and other data to update the equipment can you help me please?

First you have to set up an account at Garmin using the serial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmware update for free.
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"
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.

Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

I want to update my navi 250 for free, any ideas?


The only way to get a map update cheaper would be to buy the lifetime update, which lets you update your unit up to 4 times/year (by downloads from their homepage) for a fix sum only slighly more expansiver than the regular update.
By doing more than one update however, the price per update is almost half of just buying an onetime update.
