    No, the SD card does not need to be formatted. Are you dropping the mp3 files in the mp3 folder? Do they have the right extension on the file? ex: .mp3

I recently added four songs to my sd card and put it back in the garmin gps. They would not show up in the list of songs. The little tab on the side of the sd card must be in the down position. That solved my problem.

Make sure you have a folder named "mp3" on the SD card and that the files are in that folder. Try pressing the "source" button in the mp3 player to grab thefiles from the SD card. Also, if there are a lot of files, it may take a while for the Nuvi to read them all before they are displayed.

try putting sd card back into a pc and check that the write protection is turned off. also if it has a write protection switch on the side of it it will need to be off. failing this. you may need to check what format the sd card was formatted in . it will need to be ntfs formatt not fat32. if it is fat32 ,save whats on it re format to ntfs then reload your files. try again.. cheers Phixxer.

Nuvi 350 System Software Missing


If you have a nuvi 350 download the software to your computer and then load the software onto a formatted sd card. Insert the sd card and bootup the Nuvi 350. The sofware will then load onto the Nuvi 350. If you have a Nuvi 200 I would think it works the same but I have not tried it.
Hope this helps

Loading mp3 files to garmin nuvi 350


The device is not recognizing the file name. The Garmin GPS will only recognize MP3 files. Ipod (MP4) and other media files will not play. Converting the files to the MP3 format will correct the problem.

Garmin Nuvi 310


When connected via USB, the unit should connect with activesync as "Mobile Device". Browse this device with explorer and you should see your (formatted) SD card as \Mobile Device\SDMMC\ or \Mobile Device\sdcard\
Simply drag and drop mp3 files to this folder. If you have a card reader in your computer you can move files to the sd card without having to have
the unit connected.

How do you get SD cards to play ???


Are the songs in MP3 format? Typically you connect the GPS to the PC using the USB interface and using Windows Explorer, drag & drop the MP3 files into the GPS's MP3 subdirectory.

Then on the main screen, select travel tools and then the MP3 player. Select browse and choose a song.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

You need to buy a preloaded SD card, purchase maps from Garmin and download them to a blank SD card.
