Is there enough room in memory for both maps? You may have to delete the US and replace it with the Canadian map.

Only shows us routes not canada


I fell foul of that the other way. I have Canada maps and lent it to a friend who was going to California.

You need a map that covers Canada and it is an extra cost. The USA is in two zones, or one map does both zones.

You need to buy the Canada maps and then put it on an SD card. The map costs $84

I bought an garmin nuvi 200 in the States; now I am in Toronto, Canada but my gps does not work here in Canada; do I need to buy an update?


Hello,

You would have to purchase the Canadian mapping for that unit as it only has an American database so an update would help. For the price i would recommend getting a whole new unit instead of purchasing the Canadian mapping. 55 dollars would get you the Mapping 99 would get you a unit with both USA & CAN maps that would be up to date with Traffic capabilities. Here is a link to the product I would recommend for you.

Hope this helps!

My new tom tom go 300 gps has nosd card with maps


If you don't have maps, you can't navigate.

So: Get an SD card. Download the maps.

Question for you: How did you wind up with a navigator with no card and no maps? You might consider taking it back to the place you bought it and exchange it for one with the minimum necessary to make it work.

I just bought a magellan roadmate 1412. I live in Canada. I wanted a gps with Canadian maps. The box and ads said this product DOES HAVE CANADIAN MAPS. When I turned it on there was NO selection for Canada...


Go to User option, choose region, select Canada. I have this unit. My problem is I can't input correct street address or street number. You can input 1500 but not 700 Ste-Catherine, Montreal, QC. The support told me to buy a better one. What I am going to do with this one?

How do I unlock the Canada maps?


I had same problem, purchase Sd card, because internal memory too low for all Canada and Usa. search thepiratesbay.org for unlocker program. It works like a charm. Ps i dont know the legality of using unlocker so you may want to consult Garmin.

I cant get no canadian maping?


The 400 supports Canada, the 300 does not. According to their website, they only listed those two models.

Putting maps on sd memory card


(Untried)
For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.

Must have:
1 - Street pilot C330

2 - 512mb SD card
3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice)
4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America

What to DO:

1 - connect the GPS to the computer
2 - Insert the Map update disk
3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States
(Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)

4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"

5 - Open the folder called "img"

6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)

7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"

8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)

9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)

10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)

11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.

12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.

When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.

Tomtom One 3rd edition - no SD slot and not enough memory


You could probably just manually delete the Canada/USA maps from the device, and copy over the europe (or whichever ones you need) to the device. 
Just plug it in, and view the memory like a normal usb drive..delete the old, copy over the new.
Don't forget to use tomtom home to backup your gps device to your computer first (thus saving your canada maps for later..)
Afterwards, you would probably have to go into your preferences and choose the europe maps.
Good luck!
