    Not true!
    If he reads the linked thread he can read:
    No problem with map greater then 2 GB on all version (new or old release) of Nuvi 2xx (2xxW)! Just use Webupdater for last software if you have problem...
    With recent fw updates all 2xx[W] and 2x5[W] series now support 2 image files in Garmin folder on SD, named as gmapsupp.img and gmapsup1.img only.
    This is also applicable to 465T, all 2xx/W & 7xx series with recent US/EU fw.

    Why don't you create your own custom map? It's not as hard as you may think it is. And what's more: it's even fun to do so!

    1. Download the "PC Install" version of the map. Part of the download is the *.gmap folder.
    2. Then read: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    3. Scroll down to "Have you downloaded a Gmap folder ?"

    By using the PC installable version of the map, you can use MapInstall to create any custom version of the map.

    With the low cost of memory cards, I didn't think you'd have to cut things out.

    That's absolutely true and it does beg the question of why ppl keep asking for 'shortcut' regional images to be made for their device when it doesn't have the '2 GB' limit. Even the entire 2017.10 EU img file of 3,734,372,352 bytes [~3.48 GiB] will fit on a 4 'GB' card which has nominally ~4,000,000,000 bytes [but not all available] so around 3.6 to 3.7 GiB probably. Still a comfortable fit for just a single image of 3.48 GiB. This is a Toshiba 4 GB which has 3,955,228,672 bytes or ~3.68 GiB [MS's GB] available total space:

    I suggest you should first give it a try yourself.
    It's not complicated at all and if you spend some time now in learning you'll benefit later with the next versions of this map.
    It's so easy to let others do it for you....

    frenchma you've really been given very good advice about learning to use MapInstall yourself but if it really is too hard for you to make a regional map as suggested then carefully read my post #35 above. You can buy a 4 GB microSD card [very few Euros] if you don't have one already, download the full EU image file and place it like this: sd:/Garmin/gmapsupp.img. You can even have a second map in the card's Garmin folder named gmapsup1.img if there's room for it. 2x5 nuvi can even use quite large cards and read both FAT16 and FAT32 equally well. The small internal flash of those early devices makes the media card option the best way to go and if the 'unlocked' map ever causes a problem you simply take the card out.

    Also you should read [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Mainly it was written to explain about GB vs GiB but it does also explain that some / most older devices [including all 2xx nuvi models] are NOT limited to a 2 GB media card OR an under 2 GiB map image.

    It would be too complicated for me to beg for specific maps... even with good old Mapsource you can create anything you want with 3 Mouseklicks... those threads here could be so compact if nobody would post things (maps or asking for maps) that everybody can do on it's own...

    Hello, I have a big problem with this map. Its not working in nuvi 255w. After unlocking succesfully Europe NtT 2017.10 ALL I put the file in the sd card in garmin folder and I rename it as gmapsupp.img . The device detects the map but after green loading bar it switches itself off. With 2016.20 Europe All it worked perfectly. I've tried downloading the map from another source and with another sdcard but it doesnt work too.
