    Hello I'm from california currently traveling in Mexico using my BMW Zumo 550 with the City Navigator Mexico. There is no "basemap" on my unit except the City Navigator North America. I'm going to cross into central and perhaps south america soon but I can't find a download option on the garmin site for the worldmap. Are there any downloadable maps anybody can recommend for me before I cross the border into Guatemala?

    thanks
    Frank

    I have the zumo 450 and I found this map on ebay, its a topographic Map of mexico and it looks prety good it has a lot of detail specially in dirt roads.
    I have made a trip to baja and another one to the state of nayarit and and it helpd me very much.

    here is the link maybe its what your looking for:

    If I understand correctly from Garmin customer service World Map is the base map in your ZUMO. Just doesn't have total world. Only North and South America.
