    Default how to change default update region

    Hello everybody! I wonder if it is possible to change the factory region? A friend has 2545LMT every time he updates his device via GE, he has only Central Europe to choose from, but he needs Southern Europe. Is there a possibility and how? Of course later it loads the unlocked maps and the device works but I would like to change the factory selection. Thanks

    You cannot change the factory map region originally allocated to a device .
    The 2545 is normally a budget version sold with Free updates from Garmin via GE for a specific region Central ,Eastern ,UK & ROI etc, the only option you have to change regions is if you have Free updates for Europe and your devices storage is too small, then GE will suggest an SD card be added or to choose a smaller regional map.

    One technique is to delete the maps and fill up with dummy files, so that GE has to offer you regions.
    You can do that also using virtual GPRs, so that you set up a small size for it.

    has a nüvi 2545 with Lifetime maps for Central Europe only ,not a device with Lifetime maps for Europe so GE won't give any alternative regions as an option.

    Is it there that garmin sells Central Europe maps ONLY?
    I always understood that the maps are Europe full coverage (well, not Rusia), this one

    Depending on available space, different "cuts" can be installed.
    One of them is called "Central Europe"

    So, I really doubt this person has licence limitations to change from one region in europe to the other.

    Evidence is clear, sorry for my doubts. This is the first time I see a "regional device" and a "regional map license". I got so used to my 2595 and its ability to switch between regions that was fully unaware of such kind of map licenses.

    Not standing that, I believe wording of garmin product page is a bit misleading. It states that it come preloaded with western europe region but not specifies clearly that no other regions are licensed. For my like, it should have stated that the purchased map licence was western europe maps and that those come loaded.

    Thanks!
