What GPS are you using..? Some products won't work with all GPS units.
When I was in San Diego last September, City Navigator North America v6
worked flawlessly in my 2610.

Hope this helps.

They won`t sell you the best maps anyway (City Navigator) if you`ve
already purchased a unit - they only sell this with hardware unless you
want to buy from abroad.

It would help to know which Garmin model you have. Garmin's
MetroGuide-NA, CitySelect-NA, and CityNavigator-NA all have
the same maps and points-of-interest, but differ in their
auto-routing capabilities. If your GPS doesn't support
auto-routing then MetroGuide-NA would be the right one to
get, but if it does have auto-routing then get CitySelect-NA.

In that case get CitySelect-North America. BTW, you can
preview all the Garmin maps with the MapViewer at:

Although if you're in the US they won't sell it to you.

If by "they" you mean an authorized Garmin dealer, then
"they" will certainly be very happy to sell it to you.
tvnav sells it for $120 with personalized service;
Amazon for $108 with impersonal service; and I'm sure
there are hundreds of other dealers with varying
prices and service - take your pick.

BTW, if you happen to also have a good use for a
mouse-type GPS for a laptop PC then you might
consider getting the GPS18/nRoute/CitySelect bundle
and using the second unlock for your handheld. The
bundle sells for close to the same price as CitySelect
alone.

They won`t sell City Navigator, but you should be able to buy City Select
- this isn`t the case in europe though, as they refuse to sell either
without hardware.

http://www.provantage.com were the cheapest vendor I could find for the
euro maps, not sure how they fare for the US maps.

You are VERY wrong. We have it and we'll sell it to you and we don't
care where you are.
