In any case, I would have rather had a 250W or 260W since both of those have enough memory for the whole of North America, but I can't complain given that I got my 200W for from a coworker.
I did download the new maps, and mapsource and mapinstall are now on her pc.
But I still can't install the new maps on the nuvi, using mapinstall, because of the old maps still on the nuvi. Should I delete the old maps off the nuvi, then use mapinstall to install part of the maps on the nuvi, and the rest on the sd card?
Having a latest software makes sure to eradicate issues like security errors or any such incompatibilities.
Here is a step-by-step process guide you can follow to update your Nuvi device to latest software version.
