I was just given the Garmin 255W as a Christmas gift.Can you purchase the lifetime maps or do you have to pay for each update after the 60 day free update is over.


There are no lifetime maps for your Garmin nuvi. Garmin updates their maps over time, so there are no lifetime maps available for the device. There are free maps and you can buy maps from Garmins website.

I WAS GIVEN THE SAT NAV, BUT HOW DO I CHANGE IT BACK TO UK FROM THE MAPS OF THE USA...THANK YOU..ROB


This unit comes preloaded with maps for the region in which it was sold. It does NOT contain maps for the rest of the world (unless you purchase specific maps from Garmin). If you were given a C340 preloaded with maps of the US and you want to use it in the UK, maps for the UK must be purchased (if they have not been already) from Garmin. They can be found at www.garmin.com or your local GPS retailer.

I live in the USA. How do I use the TomTom Go 910 in the UK?


Should work just fine without having to change anything. If i remember right UK is still on the imperial system and not the metric which wouldn't affect the unit, just in the road signs, As in kms to someplace instead of miles like you are used to. As for the maps i would suggest that you buy another SD card and download the UK maps to it and leave your card at home. To switch maps see if the map you need is on the SD card, probably not, but it might be on your cd that came with the unit. If so just use a new card and download it using the software onto the SD card. Test the card to make sure that it works before you leave though. Hope this helps

Dear Sir. I have a Navman S50 3D that we used in the UK for 3 months in May last year. Now I want to load the Australian road map and I havent found a place to purchase this map. Are you able to halp me...


Assuming you are in Aus now, i have found a website that you can buy online which is
http://ausstore.navmanstores.com/2009%20Mapping.htm
If this works there, click on the first map, S- Series platinum 2009 Australia maps and click buy now $149.00, But if this is not what you want you can always exit the screen, I hope this is useful Bob, Good luck mate, Colin, UK,

I have a GPS navigation system ITEM NO W3G-01 which was given to me. Can this be used in the United Kingdom? If not what can I do. I do not live in the States Or Canada. I live in LONDON, UK


In the product manual it indicates there is a SD card slot, along with a USB port, so there is a physical method to change the map data to your locale.
http://www.nextar.com/images/Product/W3G-01%20hardware%20manual-english.pdf
However, you should contact the manufacturer to see if their firmware allows you to change/add maps. Garmin GPS units have this capability, and I have used their topo & Road maps together with very good results for off-road adventures out in AZ & Utah.

Does not have all the roads on the navman


only one solution really, up date your maps. Unfortunately you cannot just update maps for the UK, only Western Europe which include latest maps for UK (November, 2008) - go to 'navman.com/' the site \is 'Navman - beyond navigation' - click on 'UK' - when page comes up click on 'visit our online store' - on the left click on '2008 software and maps' - click on the SD card for Fseries - £39.95 inclusive

Update Tomtom map


To take advantage of mapshare, your maps must be version 6.75 or higher, and software version 7.xxx
You can also buy new maps.

In both cases, you will have to use the software TomTom Home.

Download UK and NL postcodes:

Download the zip archive to somewhere on your PC.
Right click on "zip.zip", and select "Extract all".
It should extract to produce a folder called "zip" with four files inside.

Using Windows Explorer, you can copy and paste that folder onto the TomTom drive, replacing any existing folder called zip that may already be there.

When you have finished, if you run Home and view the "contents of my device" it should show the postcodes as v701 for the UK and v704 for the Netherlands.

One way roads should already be a part of the map, look for tiny black arrows in the map that indicates one way roads...

You need to go outside with a clear view of the sky and get a satellite fix with the unit turned on (usually a couple of minutes), Then the maps will show your current position. By entering your address you are trying to create a route from current position to your destination. By default the current position is set for Kansas (Garmin US office), but once you have locked onto the satellite your current postion will be the last position before the unit was turned off.
