Updating maps in garmin
This process is painless, straightforward and the cheapest solution.
We only sell the latest maps that are available (Garmin update these every 3 to 4 months) and a map card can be purchased from here Ireland & UK SD card If your sat-nav has a 'LM' designation, for example, the nuvi 2415LM or nuvi 2597LM then your device comes with free lifetime map updates.
Even with several years of updating various models of Garmin sat-navs, I have found the experience torturous at times.
You buy a micro/SD card preloaded with the Ireland/UK maps, you insert it into the side of your device and off you go.
if you still get stuck on the loading screen, please let me know. Can you see the garmin as a device with removable storage..? Let me ask you this, do you have an SD card inserted into your garmin? Im sorry that weve had to come to this conclusion, but without the device being readable, weve hit the end of what you and I can do together.
