Cost of updating garmin nuvi 265wt looking for a job in a speed dating format
I suggest you, if time elapsing seems to be exaggerate, to stop and restart the download (last Garmin European map update was 3 hour download! I have a 265W and am getting a transfer speed of 480 KB/second on a file that is already on my computer.
) Sometimes (depending on internet connection speed, time of day) the process could be very long. I am in 9th hour of downloading and upgrading my Garmin GPS. I have been on hold for that minute for almost an hour!!!! Wonder if anyone has had success with a different cable or if some of these older 2010-2012 units are just plain slow with any usb transfer.
You can also learn how to change countries on your Garmin if you travel from country to country.
If you are looking to buy a GPS unit so you don’t depend on any wifi or data plan while traveling, take a look at this affordable Garmin GPS unit In order to make sure you can charge your Garmin GPS unit (and other devices) you have to have the right plug adapters.
However, they can save you a lot of money and frustration because a GPS unit does not need an expensive mobile phone data plan or wifi signal.
You just need to have the right maps, turn it on and it just works.
Note, however, that the 1340 LMT may have a larger file to download, so it may take longer.
Sometimes (depending on internet connection speed, time of day) the process could be very long. Pete, you are right it's not your computer and it's not your internet connection. I have three devices and all of them take hours to update, even having the maps downloaded. The USB speed I'm seeing for the nûvi 260W is just 92.5 KB/s!!
Though traffic has always been billed as a premium, subscription-based feature on navigation systems, the latter half of 2008 went a long way in demolishing that reputation.But when I came back home, I could not figure out how to switch back to the US Map.I know I have done it before, but could not remember.That being said…I got lost one time in Italy as well…but we found our way soon enough after asking around. When traveling to foreign countries, having a GPS system is definitely better than printing directions or using your cell phone…simply because you still can’t rely on finding a good and affordable Internet connection when travelling inyernationally. My inexpensive and reliable Garmin GPS unit made my life so much easier while in Europe.My purpose was simple: I wanted a GPS system that I can use both in Europe and California for driving everywhere. It’s true that the Garmin GPS supports multiple maps, but the internal memory that it ships with it’s not enough to hold two maps.
Kjell I just updated a Garmin Nuvi 50 and it took 26 minutes to download plus a few minutes to install.
