Occasionally software updates will be released for your Garmin Nuvi 205 GPS navigation device.These software updates can help fix bugs that may be contained in older software versions.Following the same steps (choosing continent, region, country) you will get free maps that can be used as soon as you copy them to your satnav.While a GPS unit makes finding a destination much easier on the road, outdated maps and software make the device less effective.
I suggest you, if time elapsing seems to be exaggerate, to stop and restart the download (last Garmin European map update was 3 hour download! I have a 265W and am getting a transfer speed of 480 KB/second on a file that is already on my computer.
It can also include tweaks to make good software even better.
Because the Garmin Nuvi 205 does not have Web browsing capabilities, you can't get the latest software updates the same as you would with a computer.
I have a Nuvi 265W, and it takes about 4 hours total for a full up-date.
Kjell I just updated a Garmin Nuvi 50 and it took 26 minutes to download plus a few minutes to install.
