    When you click in what program? Did it install something on your computer? Like maybe Mapsource?

    Working with Mapsource a little I see no way to install the whole map. There is a "Transfer" button on the menu but that is for installing segments or routes (not for the Nuvi 255W though). I never updated from the CD so can be of only limited help. I would browse the cd and look for setup routines like updatemap.exe or something similar.

    Garmin Technical Support has been very helpful the couple of times my wife and I needed it.

    It's almost guaranteed someone here can help you:

    Good luck.
