GPS: garmin nuvi 255w
I need help here and obviously, I am a super newest newbie of all.

I went through the newbie pitstop, and one of the steps said to download "gmapsupp_v6xx.zip" and then it said about "MSM NT v6.xx is compatible Garmin NT Map and can be used for garmin devices you purchased from any other regions.". Then under installing using SD Card, one of the steps said"

- Create a folder called Garmin from the root of the storage card
- Extract gmapsupp.img from the zip file & copy to [storage card]\Garmin\"

I downloaded "MSM_MSv685.zip", and unzip it. There is no "gmapsupp.img" that I can copy into my [storage card]\Garmin| folder. What should I do? I'm using a Garmin Nuvi 255W. Pls help.

Hi..
The file "MSM_MSv685.zip" you downloaded is not for Nuvi. The file is for Mapsource. Please click the URL below to download the latest map for Nuvi.

Thanks muchie !! I downloaded the gmapsupp.img. Next question is if my nuvi 255W supports the JVC file. It seems there are 2 "product.jvc" files - one in the zip root directory and another further zipped up. Which one do I use?

We wrote so many info at the same download post but surprisingly most downloaders don't read. Hopefully too excited to notice anything :D
Please help yourself and have a look again viewtopic.php?p=211530#p211530
