    Default Garmin Nuvi 255W new maps + software??? [but how]

    Dear all,

    I have an uncle of mine with an Garmin Nuvi 255w navigationsystem.
    And I was wondering if there are new maps/software available for this device?

    Because Garmin I've never worked with this system, with TOMTOM i have worked for a while.

    Who can help me?

    When i use the garmin for the first time and connected to my PC, the statusbar dident go further.
    So i place an empty SD-kard in it of my, now its almost at the end, but nothing is happening.

    2. Do you have any map in your device?
    3. if not download some unlocked image and rename it to gmapsupp.img and copy it to [SD]:\Garmin\ folder
    4. you cant use maps bigger than 1.82 GB with your old device (but you can use several smaler maps)
    start with these.....

    no, better make just update, if it freeze after update you may need format it after that and try again, but make backup first

    maybe better to just DELETE instead FORMAT, anyway there is maybe some corrupted file

    gmapprom (1.6GB) is your old map, what map it is ? you can also replace it with new map if it not bigger than 1.82GB and internal space enough.

    copy all gmapprom.* files to safe and delete them from device. also copy all other files and folder to safe.
