Post Nuvi 265w firmware & map updates

I am trying to get updates for my 265w. I have tried to use my HP notebook with Windows 7. I download the Webupdater, but it cannot connect to the Nuvi even though it recognizes it. Any help appreciated.

I have the Nuvi 265w but use both a iMac osx 10.6 and HP & Acer Lap/netbook running XP
What I do is,
Plug the Nuvi in to the mini USB with the Nuvi turned off.
The Nuvi will start with a black screen with "Garmin", a progress bar and a icon of a nuvi connected to a computer.
When the green progress bar completes the Nuvi will load on to the desktop (osx)/ My computer(xp) .
Start Garmin WebUpdater: https://www.gps-data-team.com/pda-gps-navigation/topic/365.html
When WebUpdater loads the Nuvi should be accessible.
Hope this helps

Also be sure to download (from Garmin) the POI Loader.

1st - You MUST create an online account/profile . Once done sign in to view updates

- Connect the Nuvi 265w to your computer (I also have this model)

- Go to Garmin's site to Road Safety and or POI update

- Click "My Dashboard" for software updates
- Click "My Maps" for map updates

It's really quite simple once you've done it a few times. Hope this info can help you.

I also have the same unit, I have no problems updating software and maps, but you do need to follow c764's advise for the system to work. For the European maps I use 4Gb additional SD memory card as the map data is now about 2.5Gb. From specifications I found on-line these units can handle up to 16Gb.

If I buy EU maps on a SD card do I just plug this in and use the maps?

Haven't bought them that way but would think that they should work out of the box as some people do not have computers to download info to the GPS.
