Updating garmin nuvi 205
pd - Sorry but I don't have a clue where you could get maps. It is important that this file is called Then insert the card into the GPS, press 'settings' followed by 'maps' followed by 'map info'. You need to deselect the Europe NT or whatever Garmin map you have installed, and click the map you want to display. The way the network is lined out on the screen seems very convoluted and over crowded compared to the garmin map but im sure it will still do the trick wen im driving.
One last question, is ok for me to load multiple maps onto the SD card and then pick and choose which ones I want to use at different times or will it confuse the device if I have too many maps pre loaded onto the Sd card?
One last question, is ok for me to load multiple maps onto the SD card and then pick and choose which ones I want to use at different times or will it confuse the device if I have too many maps pre loaded onto the Sd card? The maps were excessively "jaggy" (like they were logged from a non-DGPS-capable system, or a drunk driver), many of the Irish-derived placenames out near home looked like a toddler was mashing the keyboard, and I seem to recall that some of the routes it was calculating were barmy and/or impossible.
In short, yes, I could have fixed placenames, etc., over a short radius, but short of going out and driving the routes myself with an accurate GPS system it would have still looked like a drunken spider's web.

have to have either Windows or Mac in order to update your Garmin Nuvi GPS (or Magellan, Tom Tom, and a few others).
For me, it's less about the cost and more about frequency of update. I started using them last year, since both the Galway - Dublin and Galway - Limerick motorways were incomplete in the 2010 release of the official maps, but the OSM maps had the roadways in their entirety.
You would think that will included on the price, any future updates of the software. No joy though, didnt show anything different on the GPS. Do i need a particular type of SD card or similar for this to work or will the one I have do the trick? Other than that i dont where I am going wrong as I unzipped the files onto the card I have using winzip ang everything looked to download properly.
As you said you only had it for a year, what do they expect for you to be buying maps every few month? All you need to do is place the OSM maps (converted to Garmin format) in a directory called /garmin on the card, select the map on the satnav, and you're good to gp. Would appreciate a few suggestions as to where I might be going wrong with this... I have had success with this particular map: you need to do is create a directory on the card called 'garmin' and unzip the above file into that directory. I havent taken it out in the car yet but from scrolling on the touch screen I can now see the M6 motorway which I never could on the old edition of the garmin map.

I’m just going to write about the Garmin GPS because that’s what I have and all I really know.
