Using a Garmin Nuvi 255 in another country

I have a Garmin nuvi 255 purchased in Ireland some years back. It has european maps but when I tried to use it in spain it did not pick up a satellite.

Will using "change country" on the address work or is it time for a new model?

    If it works in Ireland it'll work in Spain, you probably didn't leave it sitting still long enough for it to acquire a satellite fix.

    Something else must have been going on. The Global Positioning System is international and your 255 should work anywhere in the world. Next time, find an area with a clear view of the sky and let the GPS sit there for awhile.
