    help Garmin Nuvi 55LM

    Hi, I just picked up a Nuvi 55LM. I did a map and software update with no problems. It updated to CN North America NT 2021.20 Lower 49 States. My other Garmin Nuvi's have CN North America All 2020.20. I'd like to replace the CN North America Lower 49 States with the CN North America All version. How do I do this? Also if I add a traffic receiver cable will it do traffic? Thanks, Jim

    Well first of all what Garmin are we talking about when you say other??
    Second you will not find any unlocked maps here.
    Why not just use Garmin Express to get the update on the other Garmins?

    Look at your older posts you seem to have a couple of Garmin GPS Units.

    Garmin 2595LM
    Garmin 2689LMT
    Garmin GPSMap 78sc
    Garmin 50LM

    If you do not have Lifetime updates you will need to buy the map you need.
    But looking at the 3 with LM you have Lifetime updates for those units.

    If you want different maps then you again will need to by them.

    I do have Lifetime map updates and use it regularly. I still have the 2689LMT, a 2599LMTHD and the GPSMap 78sc which I use for marine applications. I got the Nuvi 55LM to replace a Nuvi 2595LM that went south (broken display screen ribbon). What I wanted to know if CN North America Lower 2020.20 be replaced with CN North America All 2020.20 since we go to Canada fairly regularly ( when it opens again). I have a copy of CN North America All 2020.20. I know that I can probably run it off an SD Card like CN Europe but would like to replace the CN version on the 55LM with the CN version ALL which is on all my other Nuvi's. Thanks, Jim

    If the Garmin Nuvi 55LM came with CN North America NT 2021.20 Lower 49 States you will have to buy the Garmin - City Navigator North America NT 2021.20.
    You then get an unlock key so it will work on the 55LM

    Cost $99.99 USD if you go over to Canada a lot.......

    Spoiler: This come with Canada and Mexico

    I do not think Garmin - City Navigator North America NT 2020.20 even if it is unlocked will work on the 55LM.
    You will have try and see.
    But you should know all this with all the Garmin units you have had.

    Try reading these posts on the 55LM.

    Use original software from garmin website to recover it

    Many questions become very arduous, a lot of time chewed deja vu...Since we have lost all the year of work and effort, many people have no will to answer the same questions again. Me neither. Use a search, please.
