You need to check what the maps are labeled as, it should clearly state 2008 or 2011 etc. You can check this on either the computer or the device itself. If its not 2011 on the device it isn't the newest maps.

How can upgrade my garmin nuvi 255w gps?


Hello,

Using the Garmin WebUpdater will update the operating software.
http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Map updates subscriptions are available as lifetime or onetime updates and are registered to the map that is installed on the Nuvi.

The Nuvi 255w is an older unit and is probably due to be replaced. Once the battery dies on the unit, it can not be replaced easily.

There are a number of Garmin GPSs that come with lifetime map updates.

I have recently purchased nüMaps


Since you have (2) maps, North America and Europe, you will have (2) map files on the directory. They are:

gmapprom.img (North America map)
gmapprom1.img (Europe map)

Do you see both of these file names? Do you have unlock files associated with them such as:

gmapprom.unl (North America map unlock code)
gmapprom1.unl (Europe map unlock code)

These files should be 1 gigabyte or more in file size. If they are not, then they are possibly corrupted.

We have a garmin nuvi 255w. We need to know what is the latest map update. Our gps has "CN North America, NT 2010.30" version on it. Is ther something newer than this.


Maps for most GPS devices are updated several times a year. Your map is from 2010 and should be updated. You can go to the garmin site and pay to download and install upgraded maps or do a google search for map upgrades and you'll find some services offering lifetime upgrades for a few dollars more than the Garmin one time upgrade. I did this and have had no problems updating the maps on my Garmin Nuvi 250.

Need a North America SD Card map for my European Garmin nüvi 255w. Where can I buy one on line


You can buy direct from Garmin via this link. You can opt for instant download, purchase of SD memory cards or DVD ROM medium. You may also be able to buy maps at some of the outdoor stores and electronics specialty shops.

If you plan on using this GPS in North America from this point on, you might want to look into purchasing a "Lifetime Maps" subscription for about $119 instead of the one-time map purchase for $79. The subscription allows you do download updated maps up to 4 times per year, for life of the GPS. Contact Garmin Support directly for more info about this option.

Ho I update maps for my 205w GPS


You'll need to install the software on your computer first. Then you will need to connect your Garmin with a USB cable just like you would a camera to upload pictures. The computer should find your GPS and finish the install and give you a choice to update your map database. This usually is a fee based update. Not too expensive and maybe you can purchase a lifetime update deal through e-bay or amazon etc. Good luck!

Garmin 255 needs updating. How is this task perfomed?


Hello,

The GPS units do not have a complete POI database that would include some of the Camps you are interested in. It is up to the camps to make sure they are in the systems. You can suppliment your POI's with free data from online sources such as my favorite www.poifriend.com

As for the roads you probably need an update. to ensure a road is in the next update please report the missing data to Navteq (www.navteq.com).

You can update your nuvi regularly using the new Garmin Lifetime map update subscription sold by GPS City.

Need to up date maps


Create an account at myGarmin regsiter your unit ID number this will allow you to unlock the maps that you buy. You then have two options the first requires you to have an NT 2009 or 2008 map already installed.
nüMaps Lifetime™This will cost you £99.99 and is a on off payment Remember — this map update can only be used to update the preloaded maps that came installed on your Garmin GPS device. For example, a Garmin GPS device preloaded with North America maps only cannot be updated with a nüMaps Lifetime Europe Map Update, and vice versa. Check product compatibility. nüMaps Onetime™ This will cost you £79.99 and does not rely on having a map already installed.
The City Navigator® Europe NT comes on a DVD or you can download it.

The free program to syncronize the maps from your computer to the GPS is called mapsource. It's free at garmin.com to get newer maps for the unit try this it's a great deal.
