Hi - I own a Garmin Nuvi 260w. Is it possible to use the SD card to download a trucker navigation road map and upload this to my Garmin Nuvi 260w? Thanks for your response.


It is possible as long as the map is Garmin compatible.
However even with a trucker navigation map installed, the nuvi 260w will not function as a trucking GPS as the routing and IQ of the nuvi 260w does not have the capability to operate in this manner.
The nuvi 260w does not have a trucking mode to allow for the input of specific truck information like truck and trailer length and gross vehicle weight to use as factors on determining the best route for the specific truck/trailer combination.
I would recommend using a GPS specifically designed for trucking like the Garmin Dezl.

Today I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 1300 GPS system. In unpacking the unit I was able to identify the use of all parts except a small disc that was white on one side & black on the other. The black side...

the disc your talking about, is used to help secure the suction mount when the mount wont secure on its own, like to the dashboard of your car and in some instances even the windshield....

i put mine one the windshield but i do not need the disc for my truck, but not all cars or truck work without it.

the disc will help insure the unit wont fall from where its mounted but like i said, i dont use the disc unless needed.

btw, thats a nice unit you bought.

I need to add caravan to car optionsas some routes are not allowed with car and caravan

Sorry, but this is impossible with the basic level unit (nuvi 200/200w/200t) which you own.

You need to use either a multi-mode unit which allows you to navigate as either a "car and trailer" or as a "truck" or to get a "trucking friendly" unit.

Some Garmin units (like my 770T which has much of the same basic software as yours) do have a workaround which can help but is nowhere near as reliable as a proper trucking friendly unit: basically you set the map detail as low as you can accept. By doing this not only are the maps visually simplified by leaving out minor roads but when choosing a route the unit seems to ignore many of the minor roads which are normally a problem when towing.

If you choose to upgrade your unit for another Garmin then you'll discover how useless the company's website is. The specs are listed for each unit, but only say with some models that a unit is not trucking friendly and do not confirm whether others are trucking friendly. Even the multi-mode units do not clearly indicate whether they're suitable for trucking or trailering.

Sorry that I cannot give you a more positive answer but I hope that you have still found my answer to be informative and useful and can return the favour by rating my answer. If my answer has not met your requirements then add a suitable comment and I'll try again.

I drive tractor trailers for a living this unit i bought keeps leading me the wrong way is there a way to enter the rout that i want to take using my lap top and the cord that came with it it is a garmin...

What do you mean by, "leading you the wrong way"? No, there is no way to transfer a route from your PC to the Nuvi 350. I believe that unit does have a Commercial Vehicle setting. This should take you only on routes you can travel with such a vehicle. You can find contact information for Garmin at
