Please delete any MP3 files or extra vehicle icons on your Nuvi. The map file is 1 GB in size. There is a possibility that your Nuvi's directory is corrupted and/or there are hidden garbage files on the directory that are taking up your storage space. You can look for these using windows explorer but don't delete anything if you don't know what you are doing.

Not enough space for maps?


The garmin does not have any space on it for maps,any additional maps are stored on a memory
card. I don't see where garmin says the size limit of the card but in most cases unless it says
SDHC memory card,then the max is a 2g sd card, I think the models 500 and over can use over a 2g card.,

Garmin Nuvi 660 lost Europe maps


Eventually managed to speak to a man at Garmin who confirmed that it was not loading any European maps because it didn't have enough spare memory to load them all. He said that he would email me instructions for freeing up sufficient memory, the email never arrived but I decided to delet all the voice languages that were no use to me and all the other language 'help' files and tried again - it worked.
At no point did I get a 'insufficiant memory' warning, which would have been very helpful, nor is there any guidance for how much memory will be required when embarking on the update. Take note Garmin...

Download update problem


Are you trying to update a Nuvi that already has European maps installed or are you trying to install European maps into a Nuvi that does not already have them?

If it's a map update, are you getting the error when you download the update to pc, or when you are trying to install the update to the Nuvi?

When I install US map updates into a streetpilot or Nuvi, it typically ends with a download error but the maps do in fact get updated and the new software versions are shown in the setup menus.

The Garmin rep I spoke with says that is normal.

If you are in the United States, I can get you maps, updates, and even install them for you if you wish.

Feel free to shoot me a message if you're interested.

2009 map update not loading


Fixed. Called Garmin. It seems that version 4.90 FW on the Nuvi 350 (which came shipped on my 350) has a bug where it cannot communicate with the Garmin software either to update maps or update FW. Tech from Garmin e-mailed me a patch that I copied into the Garmin folder on the Nuvi itself, via USB and Windows Explorer. I then rebooted it; the patch installed itself which then allowed the unit to communicate with the map upgrade software and all is well. 2009 map update is now installed and the Nuvi is working fine again. Haven't tried upgrading to newer FW yet; will probably leave well enough alone.

Hello parteeboy24,

The on board memory in your Nuvi 200 may not have enough free space to hold the map. You may be able to free up some space by deleting maps or language packs that you don't use. (Be careful to back up any files you are going to delete.) Or you can add an optional SD memory card to the unit to increase the storage capacity on the GPS.

Best Regards,
Ken

Guys and or ladies... I know that you have to create a folder named "GARMIN" in the sd card so the maps can be recognize. Maybe this solves your problem. Let me know if it works.

Map Update 2009


Very easy to fix the problem. When you plug in the Garmin Nuvi 200 to your computer, two drives will show up . Go to the Garmin drive and click on voice file, delete all the languages except for the one you want to use (i.e. American USA), this will give you all the 37 Megs you need to download 2009 maps. Takes a while to download using the web updater that you need to download into your computer from Garmin, but I had no problems.

Map Update Problem


Firs of all I hope you are using Garmin Map Updates for 2009, not 2008. It sounds like there is a connection issue. Make sure you can go into the drive on your computer and see the device as well as access files within it. If that is all fine: I have not seen a troubleshooting section yet unfortunately with Garmin for this map update (came out about 3 weeks ago) so i would try the ones for the older versions, should be the same.
