The problem is the very slow download speed, I left mine downloading all night, select download to the computer and not to the unit itself as this is problematic, and the maps were there in the morning.
The next problem is getting the maps onto the unit, I had problems with the Map Install program, so I used the Map Source program which is much better, try to get these programs before downloading.
I have found that deleting the original maps on the unit first in the Garmin folder (backup the satnav just in case) is the best way to do this, this will clear at least 1.6GB on your unit which you can then put all of Western europe on it with the Map install/Source program, then put all the remaining Eastern countries and Turkey/Greece on the SD card, you won't need more than a 1GB card then.
People don't seem to understand that the new maps are getting bigger so they do not all fit on the unit, but you can still get 90 percent of it onto the unit and expand the units capacity with an SD card, I don't see the problem with this and I think that people are unfairly blasting Garmin over this.
Anyway, do not delete the base map( gmapbmap file), only the big map file.
Also, these new maps will always be at least 6 months behind anyway, so don't expect all new roads to be on them.
UPDATE: No need to delete the old map as the Mapsource program will overwrite the maps that are on the Nuvi with the newer maps, but still do not try to put everything on the unit as it does not have the room for the entire Europe map, just put Western Europe on the unit itself and the rest onto an SD card.
I did not find using the code intuitive but after a couple of abortive starts I succeeded in initiating the download which was then eventually successful. My line speed is limited by my ADSL link to about 5000 Mbps but the download ran at only about 135 Mbps. I cannot be certain, but I think the limiting factor was the Garmin web site. The system warned me initially to allow about two hours for the update but the whole process took at least six. I think there were three distinct phases, download, build, and transfer to the device. One problem for me was that once I had initiated the download successfully I was reluctant to do anything else on the pc, and certainly not on the web, in case it caused the download to fail. .
I had a look at the new Garmin's with the intention of buying, but there seems to be an un-resolved software problems so I will keep the nuvi 200.
I'm very pleased with this acquisition.
5/6/2013 when to Chepstow today did not need the sat-nav for this but thought I should try it out to make sure, there was no way Chepstow could be found via post code or any other way in the search mode,so in the end I found it on the nuvi's map and located it that way.
the nuvi seems a bit slower than it was with the old map to navigate around the menus, after the trip I played around with it before complaining and found that now you have to type the country name in i.e Wales or Scotland or England. It loses a star for this and also being slower.
