All that you will need to do to load the TOPOs to an SD card is insert them into your nuvi > plug the unit into the PC > open Garmins MapInstall program or if you are using he older version of the TOPOs you will be using MapSource.
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
I have a couple of ideas based on the information you gave:
1. That Nuvi has an SD card slot. If your PC has a memory card reader, you could insert an SD card into the machine, copy whatever you want onto that, and then pop the card into the Nuvi.
2. While the Nuvi is hooked up to the PC goto the hardware device manager (In XP right click -> My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware tab -> Device manager) and see if anything has an ! or a ? next to it. If so, that's probably related to your Nuvi and resolving that usually involves reinstalling the driver or updating to the latest driver.
More detailed info on what you're trying to do and the result of the above could get a more specific fix.
just got my A-Data 8GB card today and proceeded to load it up with 7.2GB of MP3s (nearly full capacity).
I timed with my wrist watch the bootup times and there was no difference in the boot times whether the SD card loaded up with MP3's was inserted in the unit or not. What did change is that even one minute after booting up the songs wouldn't show up in the "MP3 Player" window, it just had a blanked out browse button and a generic icon like it has when no music is loaded.
It took a full 90 seconds or so for the MP3 player to actually become responsive and show my selections, but after that it was working normally (from what I can tell).
Insert your card with your JPEG picture only and you can read it.
You can also plug your usb and go to your computer , open the file GARMIN you will see many files , do not touch the GARMIN main files who include your charts and other important files but the others are there for the users. Copy and paste your picture into the one who already has picture from GARMIN.
Or copy into a SD card and read it on your NUVI 200 or 200W.
The best price I could find in the US for the
Euope maps was about $230 -on the internet - normal retail is $299. You have to buy and use it off the SD card, so depending on how long your trip is it might be more practical renting one, unless you want to try selling the SD card after you return.
