4.0 out of 5 stars update details., 11 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Garmin Nmaps - Full European Lifetime Map Updates for nuvi series (Wireless Phone Accessory)
update took about 2hrs on good broadband connection, back of pack states you need 1gb ram and 15gb hard drive space for download. i have a 1.24gb and the storage space although the main download file was only 3.46gb. when it came to uploading to my garmin nuvi 255 which had a europe map on it, it said i didn't have room for the whole file and i had to select a file to load - uk and eire which didn't take long to load. the other maps are on my laptop and i guess if i need them i can easily put them on instead or it says to use an sd card. this lifetime update has certain provisos - 1 its only for a single device not transferrable 2 if it dies, unlucky although i would try and plead my case 3 only for as long as garmin use their current map supplier - how long is a piece of string? voted hot and if i get more than 1 update i'll probably be quids in.
didn't come with any decent instructions but go to garmin site and after registering and connecting your gps select activate gift card and type in your activation code - once done the only minor snag i had was a window saying i had to close all windows to continue after closing the internet connection and restarting it worked fine. ps see HUKD search garmin and get it for about £68 from comet.

Yes, important to note you can't transfer map upgrades to a different device. So having made the investment, you'll be using the device for longer before buying the latest shiny device!
