Garmin do send out update DVD maps for certain products. If it was an older unit, you maybe entitled to a free update. Simply get the Mapsource DVD. upload the maps to your PC and then transfer onto your Garmin unit.

Alternatively is to buy the DVD, which would be an advantage as it may offer additional maps to what you already had...ball park €60-70 Euro I think...Check the Garmin site...

I want to delete maps from my Garmin Nuvi 1450 LMT to make room for different country maps. How would I do this? I have been looking for answers online and in manual for hours now with no luck. Please...

    • 1 Remove the SD card from the Garmin GPS.
    • 2 Insert SD card into your computer's card reader.
    • 3 Open the "My Computer" in either the desktop or the start button.
    • 4 Double click the SD card folder to open it.
    • 5 Hold "Ctrl" on your keyboard and left click on all the map files in the folder. Once they are all highlighted, right click and select "Copy."
    • 6 Go to your desktop, right click and select "Paste." You have created backup copies of the maps in your Garmin GPS. Return to the SD card folder via "My Computer."
    • 7 Select the map file you wish to delete, left click it once and press both "Shift" and "Delete" on your keyboard.
    • 8 Return the SD card into Garmin GPS. Turn it on. Check the screen to see if the right map has been deleted. If any mistakes are made, simply start over from step 1. Replace any map that has been accidentally deleted.

    • OR Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Garmin. Insert the other end of the cable into the USB port on the computer.
    • 2 Click on the desktop "Start" menu, and chose the "Computer" folder.
  1. 3 Right-click on the Garmin drive folder, and select "Open." Some Garmin GPS devices (e.g., Nuvi 200 through 800 series devices) will have the map files stored here. Browse this folder for maps you want to remove, right-click on the file and select "Delete." If no map files are available, go to step 4.

  • 4 Double-click to open the "Map" folder.
  • 5 Right-click on any map file that you want to remove, and select "Delete."

    I bought a lifetime update from Garmin a few years ago but now my nuvi 270 tells me that I don't have enough memory to install the latest maps and that I must choose only certain regions. I have an 8Gb...

    The internal memory of the nuvi is full. Some maps will need to be delete before any new maps can be added. Typically, the map in the nuvi is named GMAPPROM.IMG and a map installed to an SD (or SDHC) memory card is named GMAPSUPP.IMG.

    1) Remove the SD card from the memory slot

    2) Connect the nuvi to the computer via USB cable.

    3) Open the nuvi drive.

    4) Locate and delete the GMAPPROM.IMG (or GSUPPROM.IMG) file(s). Optionally copy (instead of deleting) them to your hard drive in case there is a problem wit the new map file(s).

    5) Empty the Recycle Bin.

    6) Retry the map update of the nuvi.

    This method will take some time to perform depending on how many map segments you are sending to the nuvi. Transferring the entire map can take over an hour. A quicker way is to send the maps to the SDHC card directly by inserting the card into a card reader. This eleminates the slow Garmin card reader from the equation and transfers are done in a fraction of the time. No maps will be on the nuvi - they will all be on the memory card instead. To update the SD or SDHC card, do this:

    1) Repeat steps 1 thru 5 above. This removes the maps files from the nuvi.

    2) Disconnect the nuvi from the computer.

    3) Connect a card reader to the computer.

    4) Insert the SD or SDHC card into the reader.

    5) Locate and delete the GMAPPROM.IMG (or GSUPPROM.IMG) file(s). Optionally copy (instead of deleting) them to your hard drive in case there is a problem wit the new map file(s).

    6) Update the map to the SD or SDHC card.

    When either method is employed, only one map file set will result. GMAPPROM.IMG or GMAPSUPP.IMG is the name of this file set. You should ensure / change the name to GMAPPROM.IMG. Any subsequent file set added should be named GMAPSUPP.IMG.

    I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

    I am trying to download an update on my Garmin but I get the response, " Your device does not have the recommended space for the region you selected." I am just needed the US. How can I make more space...

    Hi Jwatkins99,

    Depending upon the model of your Garmin, these tips should still apply. If your unit uses SD cards for maps, try deleting all other country maps, including Canada and Mexico, if you don't plan on going there. You should do a backup of the SD card data if possible. Use the computer for this. I usually backup the maps then delete some of the larger maps on the opposite coast or side of the country...if I don't plan on visits soon.

    If you have external data in your units main memory, try clearing some of that out using your USB hookup to your computer. If your maps are on the main memory, be careful not to get into those Folders (Directories to us Nerds) and inadverently delete the software programming for the GPS unit.

    Also, if you're using SD cards, your unit may allow you to use something larger than a 2-4 GB card. Then you should have plenty of memory.

    Let me know if this helps. Thanks.

    Regards, Bill

    How to add a map to a streetpilot c330 without SD-card slot?

    Hi there,

    hopefully your garmin would have come with a USB cable to connect up to your computer, on most devices today this would be the same port that is used for charging the device at home.

    Then if you head over to this link (Garmin website)
    I assume you have a windows PC, here but tell me otherwise.
    You'll need to install the plugin which allows garmin to communicate with you device (to find out what model you have, and the current maps stored, as well as what new maps you would require)

    If you don't have the USB cable, there is the option to also enter the serial number of your device, likely to be in small print on the back of device somewhere.

    Uploading pictures into a Garmin GPS

    Hi, you should be able to copy photos from your PC via the USB cable. I saved mine onto the SD card. You can also access your Garmin as if it was a hard drive using "My Computer". Just click on the "Garmin" drive, navigate to the appropriate folder (I think there's a folder called Garmin, then a Photos sub-folder). Just delete the photos you don't want.

    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 C510 wont install download Europe maps to Unit

    Take a look at the Garmin support page - there is a Question " Why do I get a not enough space message on my Nuvi2xx when trying to update my mapping?"
    It tells you how to remove the unused voice files to free up space.
    I have a Nuvi 255WT and deleting the voice files alone was not enough, so I set about removing a lot of other stuff *** NOTE THAT IF YOU FOLLOW WHAT I DID, DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK **** it worked for me but there is always the risk of deleting a file that the device needs.
    Also I was stupid and didn't try and save the files to a directory on my MAC before deleting them, from the satnav - worth a try so that if you can do that you have a chance of recovering one that you delete if you want it back.
    First I also removed the un-needed text files - leaving only the 3 British-English files
    Then I removed all of the POI files that were clearly examples/samples
    Then I removed all of the Vehicle files except the one I was using
    Then I removed all of the large ExtData files - now that was the one that caused me the most worry as I wasn't certain what they were there for!
    This gave me a bit over 140Mbyte of free space which was enough to install the 2010 update for all of Europe.
    Now I don't know whether the C510 has the same amount/less/more memory than the 255WT - so this may or may not work for you.
    I didn't have an SD card available, which is why I went this far. I am going to get one and see if I can find out how to load the maps onto that.
    cheers - Jeremy

    Each map is locked to the unit serial number. The only way to get the map to work on another unit is to buy the maps and register the map serial number and you will receive a unlock code from garmin.

    Go to the following link to unlock the map
