Map Update 2008

I read an earlier post about the update and went ahead and ordered one. I did not realize that my 2610 was not compatible with the NT version and so I now have an update DVD that is useless to me. Anyone interested in taking it off my hands?

Garmin should take it back from you...

Wow! I was not aware that Garmin was not supporting the 2610 with update maps anymore. Wonder why? Surely it's not due to map size.

I think it's a pretty safe assumption that Garmin would rather have that DVD go to a potential customer than get it back.

The problem here I think is that Garmin sent the NT version. The 2610 mapsource 2008 is available.

Re: Map Update 2008

Murray is correct, the screw up was mine and mine alone. I ordered the NT version thinking it would work with the 2610. Wrong! Had I been a little more diligent I would have realized I needed a different version. Live and learn. It's available at a bit of a savings to whoever can use it.

Re: Map Update 2008

Murray is right even in australia the NT version will not go onto a 2610 you have to use the non NT it works fine, I have updated mine to 2008 but you will need a bigger cf card probably a 1gb. the Nt version is for the new zumo's etc

FWIW - You will probably need a 2 gig compact flash card if you want to load all of the U.S. detail maps on a 2610.
