How to Change the Home Country on a Garmin GPS

Updated February 21, 2017

Garmin sells many different electronic items that are meant to make life easier for the consumers that purchase them. For example, you can use a Garmin GPS to help you when you're driving in your hometown, across the state or even to the other side of the country. If you're going to be travelling in a different country, such as Canada or if you're moving there, Garmin allows you to change the home country on your GPS device when you enter an address so that you have access to those maps.
