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.


Hello,

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.

How do i get free update maps for my garmin nuvi 260w car gps


've looked for free map upgrades for my Garmin and could not find anything. I did find a lifetime map upgrade deal for around $75. It allows you unlimited upgrades for as long as you own the GPS. Go to the garmin site and search NUMaps.
Go to the Garmin web site & register and that will allow you to upgrade the maps to current. You will also need to use a USB cable and install the software for your Garmin before you can do so.

I bought a N.America update nuvi maps onetime at Best Buy. I can't seem to download to my gps. What am I doing wrong? I'm not very good with a computer. I thought all I had to do was put in the disc...


You need to get the MapUpdater from Garmin site...

This will let your computer find the mapupdater and install it on your garmin.

Bad news there. Cheaper to buy a new one. And less aggravating too.
Sorry about that.
