Time for an update. Go to Garmin.com and get it done. If you haven't done this for a while you might get a new OS too. The older models use a lot of the memory for the updates and might need to download a smaller range map.
Important note about maps: Due to our high volume of sales, every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. The current map provides data through April 1, 2007. If you purchased a Garmin GPS before April 1, 2007, you can purchase a map update on SD card. We will notify customers who purchase from Amazon.com via e-mail whenever new map updates become available.
If you have paid for map updates on the Garmin website you should be still able to download them without paying any more.
Log into your garmin account.
Click on myMaps.
Under the name of your map you will see the word "details"
Click on details and it will take you to a page where you can download the map again.
You don't say what happens when you try to download the map so I will tell you the solutions to the most common problems.
You need a broad band connection to download the maps as they are very large and take several hours. If you don't have broadband you could contact Garmin and get them to send it to you on a DVD.
Sometimes there's a problem of the download stopping and having to begin from the start again. If you have this problem get "Free Download Manager" from www.freedownloadmanager.org This downloads faster than standard downloaders and if the download stops it resumes from where it stopped.
When you try to download a map it selects to download to your satnav by default. When it shows your satnav it's displayed on a drop-down menu. If you click on the menu you get the option to download to your computer. If the download problem is with your satnav try downloading to your computer. When you do this there's a program called MAPINSTALL set up in a Garmin folder on your computer. When the download is finished click on the windows start button. Then click on GARMIN. Then on MAPINSTALL. This will install the map to your satnav.
Which ever way you try to download the map your satnav must be connected to your computer
I have the lifetime upgrade too. NO you do not need to keep the maps on your computer. Get rid of it. By the way there was a new map available December 21st. New map is

: NT2010.30 I'd suggest you download directly to the 260. Remember it takes about 4 hours to do. Smart decision on the map lifetime upgrade. I've paid for mine many time over.
Try using a different website where you can download the maps for free. These should work. If they don't, you might need a software update from the same web site before getting more maps: www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00401-20
Did you tried to update your Maps? There are two maps inside your Garmin. Basemap which covers all highways and major roads and mapsource source which cover regular streets. Try reloading mapsource maps.
From the "Where to" menu select the little wrench and then select map and then select Map info. What does it say for Map Info?
If the unit is still under warranty, call Garmin and get a RMA. Return the unit to Garmin.
There are two type of maps in the unit. There is the basemap which shows the states and major highway and roads and then there is the actual Mapsource maps which shows the streets. If you go to Mapinfo and it doesn't show anything, then Mapsource maps are missing.
With the 2610 you can use a card reader for the Compact Flash Memory card to load the maps. This is much faster since the card reader is USB 2.0 while the Garmin USB is 1.1 Under device look for the drive letter which correspond to the Campact Flash card.
