If you are going to be using your Nuvi GPS in a different country to the one in which you purchased the device then you will need to check to see if you have that coverage on the Nuvi.
So for example, if you are planing to travel to Australia and you bought your Garmin Nuvi in USA with map of North America, you will have to buy city-navigator for Australia.
I purchased the lifetime option for the US and Europe maps. place CD card in GPS, connect it to computer and let computer recognize GPS. If you will have problem with installation on card in GPS device (as I have) do this: 1.
In the process of updating my maps something happened and the Europe maps are gone. I did find the Europe map downloaded to a Garmin file in my computer and transfered it to a 4g sd card and later a 16g sd card. use Map Updater to install map onto computer only (I don't know if Express has this function already). place SD card in reader and let it be recognized 3.
You should also use Garmin's Mapupdater progrom and not Garmin Express or Garmin Lifetime Updater to manage the map update as it will be much easier to update and with less problems. you should get info, that there is no space on GPS to install map and option to choose SD card as destination. let download and installation finish, disconnect GPS and restart it.
My apologies if this is not where this should be posted. I have used it in the US and in Spain and worked just fine, a life saver!! Should work but SD card MUST be present all time in GPS slot.
This will enable you to download the updated map onto your device.
The version that is installed depends on the region or country that the Nuvi will be sold in, so for example customers based in the United States will have City Navigator NT for North America, whilst European customers will have City Navigator for Europe.
