    Hi,

    Just got a Garmin 278 and already messed up.

    Long story short, i'm trying to update with City Navigator Europe NT 2010.1, got unlock codes, etc.. etc... everything goes well, untill the time it comes to send the "new" map to the 278 unit. An error occurs and the install program simply says it will shutdown.
    :kboom

    Right now i have a very expensive sat nav unit with only a very dull map identified as Atlantic Routable Highway Basemap V3, where it was Europe NT 2010 map...

    Yes i've updated the unit software, currently is 3.30...

    Any suggestions?

    This worked somewhere else, but have you tried it with the unit plugged into AC power?
