I think you can get the DVD free from Garmin or anyone, it's the Unlock code that's the difficult bit....

There are cheaper places to buy the maps m8 than garmins site.

Hopefully im allowed to post this if not please remove it admins

With regards to the downloads on Ngroups, I havent managed to find the actually UPDATE DVD on their, only the full 4.3gb Addon Maps. What happens when you try and install these is this: it tries to put them as a seperate map on your Nuvi 250, since there is only about 300mb free on the nuvis then you cant load the whole DVD on. It is more designed for if you only have the UK base maps and want to add somewhere else like Spain etc. The actual update DVD replaces the 1.3gb base map on your Nuvi with an updated one. It takes about 1 1/2 hours so i am told for it to update!!! I havent actually been and bought the update DVD yet so I cant confim the time scale it takes :)

Hope this helps

What i did was downloaded the full dvd then selected just uk and ireland and loaded that on. It did keep old uk and ireland maps on there as well but you can choose which map to use. This was on a 350 though could have more or less space on it not sure

Yeh on a 250 you can just get the UK and Ireland maps added along side but then you run out of space :-( If I could find a download for the update DVD then I might be able to sort out the Unlock Codes for it, but nowhere seems to have it for download :-(
