    Garmin Nuvi 265

    Hello GPSU friends.

    I bought one a brand new Garmin Nüvi 265 and left it laying around.
    Nowadays however i need it once a wile. Pretty nice thing, it has BT and a nice voice.
    Problem are the accuracy of the maps.
    I bought the thing in 2011 and never updated or whatever.
    Actually the first time i used it was some weeks ago.

    I've read that i can change the original .img file by one wich is from a more relavant date. But i'm not quite sure, so i need some help,
    cause i dont know if its possible and wich maps to install (*locked-unlocked*).
    The device is never tampered with, its mapdata is also stock. It has its maps internally stored, but there is a sd-cartslot on the left.

    Sorry to just put it on once plate, but im more into other things lately.

    You wanna do whát with that screwdriver?

    It's really simple. My recommendation:

    1. Buy 4 GB SD card
    2. Create folder Garmin in a Fat32 formatted SD.
    3. DL City Navigaror Europe NT 2014.40 from here: Garmin City Navigator Europe NT 2014.40 Unlocked (download torrent) - TPB
    4. Copy unlocked map (gmpapsupp.img) in to Garmin folder on your SD.
    5. You are good to go!

    - other files from torrent are not relevant because your device doesn't support them (gmap3d.img).
    - delete your old map from your device. It's located inside Garmin folder named "gmapprom.img"
    - connect your device with your pc, install garmin webupdater and check for software updates for your nuvi.
    - You might come across with the latest map - Garmin City Navigator Europe NT(Unicode) 2015.10 but it's in unicode standard therefore is NOT good for older models like Nuvi 265! That's why I recommended the latest NT version.
    - If you live across the Atlantic, than you need NA map: Garmin City Navigator North America NT 2015.10 Unlocked (download torrent) - TPB
