Wanted to switch maps from usa,pr to the canadian maps, but when i put the map data cd rom in and then the sd card in, and followed all directions for the switch...an error message appears saying that the moble navigator folder does not exist, then if I'd like to create it. so of course I answer yes but then nothing happens, nothing creates or anything it just sits there idle.
Please help, me any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: caliber p-3600 map data card
Hi Sometimes it takes a minute a two to lock onto 3 or more GPS satellites (you can see how many satellites are being received by selecting the Main Menu – Settings – GPS Diagnostics). As soon as the system locks onto 3 or more satellites, the system will immediately change from the default location (San Jose, CA) and display your location.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. goodluck!

Hi,this will be dependant on the sd card and it,s maps database. if you have usa maps. this probably does,nt include maps of canada. check nuvis site, to see if canada maps are available for download or purchase.Mike @ Compurepair.
No. They are refering to maps sent from the computer to the Garmin device. Maps are not transferred off the SD card to the unit. Simply insert the SD card into the device and the Garmin will read the maps from the card.
to double check follow these steps
Power on the unit with the card in
Press Info (or map info)
This page should list out both your UK and Ireland maps(old as dirt) and your new Benelux and France maps as well
Please click on the wrench symbol, then map icon and then "map info". You will see (2) maps listed with check marks next to them. Uncheck the map you do not want to use. Check mark the map you want to use. This is how you switch between maps.
(Untried) For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.
Must have: 1 - Street pilot C330 2 - 512mb SD card 3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice) 4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America
What to DO:
1 - connect the GPS to the computer 2 - Insert the Map update disk 3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States (Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)
4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"
5 - Open the folder called "img"
6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)
7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"
8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)
9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)
10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)
11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.
12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.
When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.
