    check the mapset name - gmapsupp etc unl files in the garmin file system or sd card. check whether maps are still there. Use gmaptool to check whether the maps are faulty or with error. If missing or with error- only way recopy them back

    The folders won't tell you what maps are installed, the Nuvi maps always have the same file name irrespective of region.
    As your unit is new, you qualify for free download from Garmin. In fact it appears to me reading between the line of the thread that you have downloaded latest maps from Garmin. Because of the limited space on 255, the install has asked which area of Europe you want to install. You have selected the default central and eastern Europe which excludes UK and Ireland.
    I suggest you ensure you have a download that includes mapsource and then you can put all the maps onto an SD card to ensure you have full coverage. A 4Gb SD card is best from reading forums. 2Gb too small!.

    You can fit the whole of Europe onto a 255 but you need to delete other files that you don't require e.g. other vehicle icons and languages. As a newbie you may want to avoid this option until you are more acquainted with what is required. You don't want an expensive paper weight.

    Hope this helps

    Plug card into Nuvi.
    Plug Nuvi into PC

    In mapsource use select tool to select whole of are required
    Change the Section Name to All

    Click the upload button
    You can then select the "drive" you want them to go to.
    Select the card
    Wait a long time depending on PC performance.

    Done

    Good luck
