    Hi all, Can i ask a dumb question? I got a second hand Nuvi 42, which only contains America maps. But I want to install New Zealand maps and use it in New Zealand. Can I download the maps from this post and install them in my device? Or I can only buy the maps from the official website, which is near USD160? Many thanks!

    Im pretty sure you can..i dont know if your device uses these exact maps but just do a bit of searching here and you should be able to get a answer.

    @feifeibapu
    Searching for basic info is in fact the best option, volumes of info in the Tuts: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. This one is particularly helpful for those starting out: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. There's lots more, but sometimes it's a bit hard to see the woods for the trees because there's just so much info. Have a look around but your easiest option is to put AU/NZ unlocked image [or just NZ] and the JCV file on a microSD leaving the NA EOM map on the unit.

    Post again if you need specific help, but please look at the tuts first.

    ...the simple answer is YES!

    The complicated answer is how many maps do you want on ur Nuvi?

    I have Topo, Oztopo, City Xplorer, City Navigator, contours, Bluechart, SonarChart, OSM, Track4Australia, HEMA rastor, World Relief... the list goes on and both my Nuvi and my Etrex share those same maps!

    -- enjoy.
