I am leaving for england in a few days. I cannot figure out how to buy a map of europe. i prefer to download software from internet but how do i know if i have enough memory to buy it without a buying it pre-installed on a chip? I haven't found that information mentioned anywhere. And do you sell downloadable maps? If not, what is the fastest I could get it? I only have a few da;ys.

If you bought the satnav in the USA it won't work in Europe. If you bought it in Europe you can download the maps but the full map of Europe won't fit on it. You can fit Western Europe or add and remove countries as you need them. It's probably not a satisfactory solution when traveling with a motor home. You can put the map on an SD card but the nuvi 200W has problems reading maps from SD cards of 2 Gb or more. The map of Europe would take a 4 Gb card to hold it all.
At the top of the screen it should show the country that's selected which I believe is England. At the bottom of the screen it should say CHANGE COUNTRY. Press CHANGE COUNTRY and select Belgium.
If this is not possible you may need to download the map again. To download again log into myGarmin and click on the myMaps tab at the top of the screen. You should see the name of the map you downloaded and under it the word in blue DETAILS. Click on DETAILS and it will bring you to a screen where you get the option to download it again. Download and install it on your computer, rather than the satnav, and when it's completed click the start button of your computer. Go to GARMIN and then MAPINSTALL. When you click MAPINSTALL you start the process of installing the map to your satnav and get the option of selecting the part of the map you want to install. After installation you may have to change country again as in the first paragraph above. This should solve the problem.
If you're happy with the satnav you have it's cheaper to update. You have the option of buying a once off map update or a lifetime update. That is for the lifetime of the satnav not your life. With a lifetime update, which costs around 120 euros, you get 4 updates each year. This is the cheapest option. However the only problem with this method is that the maps get bigger each time you update and the space on your satnav stays the same. I started off with a full map of Europe and now I'm only able to store Western Europe on my garmin nuvi 760. You can use memory cards to hold some of the map but older garmin satnavs have a problem recognising the maps on memory cards. If you need the full map you might be better buying a new satnav every few years. If you only use part of the map a lifetime update might be the best option.
If you decide to go for a new satnav I would suggest that you go for one with the biggest storage space possible and then get a lifetime update or get a model that comes with lifetime updates like the 3790LMT. You can judge the storage size by the amount of maps it comes with. The 3790 model has the complete USA + Canada and Mexico or the 2370LT comes with maps of Europe and USA, lifetime traffic updates but not lifetime maps.
It's possible that it doesn't have a map of England. Press Tools, then press Settings then press Map. Press Map Info. This will show you the maps installed on your satnav and the map selected should have a tick beside it. If there's no map of Europe or UK on it you'll need to buy one. If there's one there but not ticked press on it and it will become selected and should work fine then. If you need to buy a map you'll need to register the satnav if you haven't already done so. TO REGISTER Connect the satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com. Select your country. Click on myGarmin and then on Register Your Garmin Device. Follow the prompts. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them in a safe place as you'll probably need them again to update maps. TO BUY NEW MAPS. Log into myGarmin and click on myMaps. Click on Shop fFor More Maps. Select the one you want, UK and Ireland or W Europe would do. Follow the prompts.
You haven't stated which exact maps you have installed nor which countries were missing.
However, European mapping does not cover the whole of Europe; for example if you have a version with UK and European maps it's normally Western Europe with just a few Eastern European countries but you can buy additional maps if required.
Please click here for the relevant Garmin page for current European maps specific to your model.
Hi, You will have to buy a version of European maps. After you download them into your Garmin it will work just like in the US. Here is a link I found for you. It looks like you need to buy all of Europe but there may be a way to just buy individual countries. Best wishes on your trip.

who need to hook it up to the computer and download the maps back in to the Nuvi. Kinda reprograming if you will. the Garmins usually dont come with the usb cord to conect to the computer but you should be able to buy one. hook it up and download all the maps and you should be good to go. Oh by the way they have lots of cool fetures to download on the Garmin website cool cars and voices, although i prefere for mine not to talk. Good LUck
