    I bought it in the US. Where would one go about purchasing the maps and what connection do I need to hook my Garmin up to the computer. I am in desperate need of quick assist.

    Does it have the UK/Ireland maps loaded in it? You don't say where you brought it from, but if it has, for example, North American maps, then you must buy the European maps and install them before you can use it in Ireland. You can get more information on the www.garmin.com website.

For the nuvi, you need City Navigator NT - Europe. It's available loaded onto an SD card that you just plug into the unit. Since you're in a hurry, you might want to call Garmin and see if they can suggest a retailer that might have it in stock. Here's their contact information for support in the UK. Good luck!

When encountering errors such as "No Map Data Available" and Garmin Express does not recognize your Garmin nuvi, check to see if your Garmin nuvi is out of storage space from your computer. Solution related to the fact that when brought up as the E: drive in windows there were 0 bytes free space on the Garmin nuvi. To get Garmin Express to recognize a unit which is full, do a search on the Windows Drive (E:) for "gmap" then choose "Open file location" This will get into the hidden ".system" directory. From there, delete the largest file map, such as "gmapprom" (or move this file to your hard drive). Afterward, reboot your computer to have Garmin Express software recognize your Garmin nuvi. On older units, also purchase a microSDHC card to be able to store the newest maps, such as the US & Canada 2.6Gb map file, which will not fit on the internal unit alone or a 2Gb card. The Garmin Express software will recognize 4Gb to 32Gb microSDHC Class 10 or UHS-I cards formatted to FAT32 and install the newest maps automatically to them. Some have reported that 4Gb cards are not large enough. I had used a 16Gb SanDisk Ultra PLUS UHS-I card ($10.88 Walmart) successfully on my Garmin nuvi 1450LMT

I own a Garmin also, I am aware that Garmin offers updates by buying there current updated CD. You will need to load the CD on to your computer and then plug in your garmin to accept the new updated maps. Go to this link www.Garmin.com it will explain their pricing structure for their updates.

Is it possible to get inland waterway maps (IRELAND)to suit nuvi


GPS City (http://www.gpscity.ca ) sells compatible Inland lake maps. Please note Garmin does not recommend them for that unit but I am sitting at my desk with one in my Nuvi 760 and it is working fine. You will need to turn off the street maps first to see the inland lake maps. I tested it with a Garmin Pre-programmed card for Alberta Canada.

Have a Garmin nuvi 200 with North America maps. Am downloading a map of Ireland. Will this erase my existing maps of N. America?


It will depend on how much memory you have in your Garmin. If you have maps that you want to keep then I would download those first and then add in the Ireland maps. Or wait until you leave to add in Ireland. I believe the Garmin will tell you if there isn't enough room to add in Ireland.

USA Garmin nuvi 200. Can I download Ireland map?


Hi,
You will have to buy a version of European maps. After you download them into your Garmin it will work just like in the US.
Here is a link I found for you. It looks like you need to buy all of Europe but there may be a way to just buy individual countries. Best wishes on your trip.

Garmin Nuvi 300 - SD problem


I believe your current location is somewhere in UK/Ireland, which means the Nuvi's last/current satellite fix is not anywhere within Spain/Portugal. If you need to use the maps features of that country where you're not physically there with the Nuvi, the Nuvi must be in Simulation mode first. Fold down the antenna to switch off GPS (not device) and enter Simulation mode.

Then, scroll the map screen (combinations of zooming out, browsing, and zooming in to the spot) until you find the location you want to simulate (it must be within the maps coverage). Then, tap 'Set Loc' at the bottom of the screen. At this point, as far as the Nuvi is concerned, this is the GPS location where you are at. Then you may proceed with Address Search, etc. using the other map's database.
