Question about Garmin GPS

1 Answer

Hi I have a Garmin Nuvi 215W bought in South Africa. I desperately need a Europe map, as I am now living/working in the Netherlands (Holland). Very few stores stock Garmin products in Netherlands, more competitor products. Where can I purchase/download a Europe map? Thanks! Joy

Maps of Europe for Garmin GPS devices can be purchased on line. You'll need a USB cable to connect the Garmin to your computer. Then, with the USB cable connected, go to http://www.garmin.com

On the web site, first register your product. Then look for "Support" and follow their instructions for updating your software. (Software updates are free.) After you've done that, look for "Maps" on the menu at the top of the screen. By the way, maps are huge files, so plan on the map download and installation taking several hours or maybe even overnight to update your maps even if you have a fast internet connection.

I am traveling ion europe and have purchased a set of european maps for my nuvi 1300. i need to transfer the maps from the sd card to the nuvi 1300


If you bought your satnav in the USA don't transfer the maps to your satnav. The USA version of the satnav won't work in Europe. If you bought the satnav in Europe you should only have to plug the SD card into the satnav for it to work.

I have a Garmin nuvi 260 and I bought it in U.S. I am going to the Netherlands and when I type in Netherlands it tells me it cannot find it. How do I use this in Europe?


You'll need to buy and install European mapping, such as Garmin's City Navigator® Europe NT, or the slightly cheaper but more restricted City Navigator® Europe NT – Benelux/France.

Unable to unlock new maps


Where did you download the Australian maps from? If from Garmin, contact Garmin for the unlock code. Maps have to be unlocked to a specific unit.

If you downloaded the maps from the internet, you will still need to contact Garmin for an unlock code.
