Follow this steps:
1) Open the file with WinZip or similar program and extract GMAPBMAP.IMG file, then rename it to GMAPSUPP.IMG
2) Copy the file to your GPS internal memory or memory card (on card there must be folder named Garmin, put it inside that folder).
3) Restart your GPS. Hope that helps.........

I have a garmin 260w that was a gift in dec 2009. I want to update the maps to the unit and thought there wasa n option at no charge but I cant find it. Do you have instructions on how to update unit for...


Sorry, no free maps. I know I've tried. You either live withthe old map or buy the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOURGarmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:

To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater First you have to set up an account at Garmin using theserial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmware updatefor free. After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website,perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect yourcompatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from yourcomputer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start","Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater" REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a mapupdate.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps. By the way, thecorrect Garmin approved power OR download cables are a must!! Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

Your maps are old. You really need to update and it may cost you. I really like you 260. I have the same. For about $100 you get new maps for life. Well worth it. Or you can buy new maps as they become available, but those cost $80 each!! Doesn't take much to decide that.
