First I would suggest you contact Garmin to make sure you can have dual countries on your unit. I will supply you with the web site to contact them. It is www.garmin.com Once you get on there web site go to the top right of that web page and click on My Garmin. Log into there system with your user name and password. If you don't have a user name and password set up one its free. Then go to their technical support and either contact them by email or by phone they are both listed on the website. Also you can purchase updated maps on there web site but I recommend you dont purchase them until you speak with one of their techs to see if your unit will handle two countries first.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a YES on the web page you received this response from me on. Thank you

Can i download maps of germany,switzerland and france onto my Garmin Nuvi 255 now that it already has australia and nz on it


You can, but...

You'll need to load the mapping onto a removable memory card, as your device's memory isn't large enough. Adding a memory card with additional maps really slows the machine down, painfully so. Buying the European mapping pack isn't cheap: you can buy a brand new satnav with full European (including UK and Eire) mapping preinstalled for about the same price. Click here for a current example, but there are cheaper ones if you abandon Garmin in favour of Medion or other brands.

It works out even cheaper if you sell the old satnav to fund the purchase of the new one. When you need the Oz/NZ mapping again you can do the same thing again as by then your original unit will probably have out of date maps anyway.

Hook your Garmin into your pc -using the USB cord provided with the kit- run the disk -then go to GARMIN dot com and look for maps for your unit. There is a charge. 1687c58.jpg

I have Garmin Nuvi 200W that I'd like to add Australian Maps to.


You can purchase maps for download at https://buy.garmin.com/shop/buymaps.do?null&ra=true. Garmin does sell the maps for Australia at that site.

There are other maps available from third parties which are compatible but you'd have to confirm that from the seller.

I just purchased a Garmin nuvi 255, and the maps are inaccurate.


Just go to http://www.garmin.com There will be a registeration link. Yes I think that you will get a free mapupdate with your registeration at least they used to do that. You will need your unit serial number and model.

You can transfer the UK maps to an SD card which you can then insert into the Garmin. This way, you'll have both UK and Australian maps on your GPS. Got to Setup to choose which map you want to view.
