That is the problem. Many Garmins sold in the USA only have the lower 48 states and that is all you'll ever get unless you purchase a separate LIFETIME MAP update for all of North America.
The Lifetime map update is not cheap !!!
Happened to a friend, bought a Garmin at Costco in the USA.

Nuvi 350 long gone, Nuvi 855LMT, Nuvi 2797LMT, DriveSmart 50 LMT-HD, 3790LMT now my daughters. Using Windows 10. DashCam A108C with GPS.

Well ...

The OP hasn't come back but I have a suspicion from his comment about an unlocked map that he's trying to install a pirated map smile

Interesting, I don't recall ever seeing one that wasn't full North America.

Full North America would be

Full North America would be lower 48 + Canada + Alaska?
Mexico?

My Nuvi(s) only get lower-48 map. Newer umits get more.

I never get lost, but I do explore new territory every now and then.

It isn't just older vs. newer. The current Drive models:

https://explore.garmin.com/en-US/drive/#product-drive

offer the USA or USA+Canada for the basic Drive 51/61 while the ...Smart, ...Assist and ...Luxe offer the full North America maps.

It was similar with the nuvi line in that the Essential Series came with a smaller map or even being sold with two map options with the small mapped device being cheaper.

The full North America includes:

US, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Bahamas, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Barthelemy, and Jamaica

Humm, my Nuvi 2460 LMT had full North America, I used it to navigate to Niagara Falls Canada from Pennsylvania. Pretty sure I didn't have to buy anything extra.

My Nuvi 2689 also had full NA.

My current DriveSmart 61 LMT-S also has full NA.

I have two Zumo's, 450, 550, that I bought LMT for that are full NA.

When I go to add maps to the SD card on the Zumos, part of the full NA maps include some islands in the Florida area as well as French Guyana in South America for some reason. (I'll look at my saved Map Source file later for all it includes)
