Caliber p-3600 map data card

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.

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.

    The supplied Caliber-NavMate DVD-ROM may be used in your PC with a flash card reader to load your Canada map data.  See the Caliber-NavMate Downloader Instructions.

    Caliber Personal Navigation Systems come with a pre-installed memory card containing everything you need to navigate in the country where you purchased the unit. If you wish to build additional map data libraries (e.g. All USA + Canada <2GB> or Canada-only <512MB>) we advise that you choose a flash card of the same type that shipped with your system and with enough memory to store your maps (as stated in database list).

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of idea you may want to explore;

  • while performing the map switch, temporarily disable the computer's antivirus program;
  • verify that the SD card is formatted appropriately and readable by the GPS unit. It may be necessary to format it again;
  • verify that the interface presumably USB is able to detect and access the connected device. Should this be a SUB issue, uncheck power saving feature in the USB Root Hub in Device Manager;
  • try a different SD card.
Hope this be of initial help/idea, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Check that the memory card is not write protected, there is a small switch at the card side.

How to switch between maps ?


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.

Mio c220s canadian version


I would thnik you could download the US maps from a US cd that came with their unit to an SD card.

The C220 for the US comes with 4 states on the GPS and the rest on an SD card that is in the side of the unit
I downloaded the 46 maps form my cd to a 1GB SD card that I put in a sot on my computer.

How do I unlock the Canada maps?


I had same problem, purchase Sd card, because internal memory too low for all Canada and Usa. search thepiratesbay.org for unlocker program. It works like a charm. Ps i dont know the legality of using unlocker so you may want to consult Garmin.

Putting maps on sd memory card


(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.

USA MAPS


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