Updating maps on nuvi 350
My problem with these things is the cord situation. I have cords into my cigarette lighter and stereo for various things like my i Pod, and I get quickly overwhelmed with cord management. If you’re in the market for a mobile nav system for your car, bike, motocycle, or just for exploring a new city on foot without getting lost, you simply can’t go wrong with the Garmin Nuvi 350.I’d LOVE to see more reviews of products that focus on usability.Mostly you get these kinds of comments nestled in with really in depth reviews typically found on forums for the products (ipod lounge, tom’s hardware, etc).Replacing and removing old maps on the Garmin can be done with the aid of a computer. Never delete the map that came pre-installed on the GPS. Maps are best transferred to the device using an SD memory card and the on-board reader. On a Mac, you will need to take the additional step of emptying the trash can.Insert the SD card into a card reader connected to a USB port on your computer or directly into the computer's SD card slot, if it has one. Using your keyboard and mouse, hold the control key (PC) or command key (Mac) and left-click the mouse to select the appropriate files. This way you can always go back and fix your mistake, if you make one. To do this, mouse over the trash can, press the mouse button and hold until the menu comes up.It’s important to regularly update your Garmin Nuvi GPS maps, content and software.Roads are constantly changing, being improved and redeveloped.

One advantage of the Garmin is its relative ease of use.
Though most devices come with preloaded maps, some users may want to buy updated maps yearly or before embarking on a road trip.
I also understand using the blog to promote great products as long as I am assured that those promotions are uncompensated. The US maps and millions of points of interest (gas stations, parks, lodging, attractions, etc) are pre-loaded. You can update the maps when they are available via a USB connection.
I followed the link to amazon and noticed the ref=37signals query string. Jason, have you posted a statement anywhere regarding this type of compensation issue. It also has a SD slot so you can add MP3s, more points of interest, and other things.
