Map Update 2008 (NUVI 660)

 

1st time post, so bear with me. I just received a Map Update 2008 from Garmin for my NUVI660. Also I am new with computers and the Garmin, my question is? After inserting the CD in the computer, follow the directions on the screen(Are they accurate?) Is the information downloaded to a new folder on the computer and then transfered to the GPS. I have learned a lot just reading various post the last month. Somebody please give me some advice on this. Thanks

Yes, I beleive that is true.

Yes, I beleive that is true. What is downloaded is for mapsource from my understanding. I am not sure if the GPSr gets updated by the files on the computer or from the cd directly.

the map data is downloaded to the computer and then uploaded to the GPS ROM from the PC. It will not load direct to the GPS. i updated a few weeks ago.

Following the Directions worked for me

Don't get nervous if it seems to take a long time, don't rush, you 'll be fine. You might want to back up your nuvi's files just for gee whiz before you start.

And be sure you insert it into a DVD drive not a CD drive.

Thanks for the advice. I had tried to download after puttting it in a CD drive, and of course it didn't work. I now have it downloaded and put on the GPS. Thanks again for the help. RVN4US (NUVI660)
