In order to install new maps they need to be purchased through garmin at there website www.garmin.com If you currently have the CD's for the area there is a plug-in on Garmins website that you will also need to install also. That piece of software is on their website under software. Once that is installed you will need to attach your unit to your computer with a USB cable if you don't have one garmin can sell you one, but you will find it much cheaper on Ebay, Garmins is a little over priced. Put the CD's in your computer and let the software run. It should prompt you the rest of the way on the install. Ill be honest with you I have never heard of anyone running two different countries on their garmin but if you have room on your hard drive it should work. But as a safe guard send off an email to Garmins tech support just to make sure your not going to experience any problems with two different countries on your unit. garmin usually get back to you in 24 hours with their response.

I hope this helps you out if so please give me a Yes that I did help you out. Thank you.

GPS (Europe) work in Canada?


Unfortunately you cannot install Sony North American maps on your GPS but you can add another GPS application as iGO8 etc.
Let me know if you decide to sell your GPS here in Canada.

Lost maps by updating


Unit comes with pre-loaded maps. Why update? Maps on DVD is the same copy as it's on the unit.

If you have troubles make sure you're not in Navigation mode when running the update. Update does not like files still in use.

I am updating my nuvi 200 with map update 2009 of city navigator north america nt. Canada is not loading to my gps through my computer. Looking for a solution.


when updating from the city nav update disc, it will only update the maps currently on the unit. Since Canada isnt included, it will not add it on. What you need is the Pre-programed City navigator chip for Canada. Normally retails around $59.99

Jensen GPS NVX430BT How do I activate the text to speech ?


I'm about to return my Jensen NVX430BT because apparently the maps cannot be updated! The maps installed on the unit I just received are obviously outdated and there is no support from Jensen to get them updated. Too bad, this thing has it all except good directions.
