    I got City Nav NA (DVD) for my Montana. Can City Nav be installed on more than one unit? and correct me if I'm wrong but I should be able to install City Nav on multiple P.C's.

    Also, if City Nav it is good for JUST one GPS device, is it tranferable to a different unit if you would want to sell or upgrade your GPS??

    thanks

    City Navigator NA is licensed to ONE unit and cannot be transferred to another normally. You can always call Garmin Product Support and ask them if they will transfer your map to a new Garmin unit.

    You can load the CNNA map to any computer with BaseCamp installed.

    Ok thanks. I just installed it on my PC and the Montana all went well, wasn't expecting it to take as long as it did, about 45min.

    Normally the only time Garmin will transfer the map to another unit is if you get an identical unit through a warranty repair, but they have been know to make exceptions on occasion, like if you chose a gps unit which wasn't exactly what you needed.

    So has anyone successfully got Garmin to switch CN to a different receiver?

    I got the 600 and am now wishing I would have got the 650 (camera). I would probably sell my 600 if I new I could switch CN to my new unit. May be good to give them a call first and ask...

    I had an eTrex CX that was out of warranty & no longer being produced. Garmin offered me 20% off a new eTrex 20 & I said I'd but it from them if I could get a new unlock code so I could put my City Nav on the eTrex 20. No problem they said. So I bought the 20 & they set me up with a new code. :clap
    Bonus, the customer support I think was some guy in TN or someplace like that, sounded real 'Murican. We talked about the military & service so maybe that helped in getting a code as well.
    Either way, Garmin support for me has been outstanding. :nod
