SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 200W SD card Problem

The problem is that the US 2008NT map takes up about 900MB, the update itself will push that up to 947MB. The Nuvi 200w has an internal memory of 1GB, the Help folder takes about 35MB and the text and speech files for all those other languages that you don't use or understand takes up about 30MB. So if you add all those up you come up with more than 1GB, and the SD card cannot be used for the US mapset (preloaded). It can only be used for additional map sets that you want to add like Europe, Mexico, Australia etc etc. So how do you update? Well you are going to have to decide if you really need all those extra voice and text languages such as Aafrikans, German, Spanish etc etc. If not, get rid of them. Also consider getting rid of the Help Folder since it's actually pretty useless, but I leave that up to you to decide.

Now for 3-belmont-E, your friends and yourself should have realized that the Garmin units read SD, not SD-HC which are different. When you got the 1GB SD card, it should come up as another drive. It will not show up as a folder on the Garmin unit itself, for example....
Your main drive is C: and your CD/DVD is D:, when you plug in the Garmin it becomes E: but if you have an SD card that will become F: so in reality your Garmin device will now be E and F, with F being the SD card. This is of course if the SD reader in the unit did not get damaged by you guys putting in the SD-HC card into it.

SOURCE: SD Card slot Garmin nuvii 260

I have found that waypoints, routes and directions work only when I load it on the unit itself as opposed to the SD card. The SD card works more like an expansion slot for pictures or maps.

When you open up Mapsource you'll see the map on the right and the pane on the left, above the pane there are 4 tabs (Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks). As you select a map or create a waypoint, route or track. It will put a number in parenthesis which will increase in numbers as you add an item corresponding to each category, for example if you create a waypoint. So once you have done that, click on the TRANSFER tab in the Menu selection bar and choose SEND TO DEVICE. A window will pop up that will say...Device: with a drop down menu if your Garmin unit has an SD card in it, if not it will just show the Garmin unit. Then right below that there will be a section that says WHAT TO SEND with 4 check boxes that will say Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks. Make sure that you have selected the Garmin unit, not the SD, and the waypoints, routes or tracks you want to send. I hope this solves your problem or at least points you in the right direction...

SOURCE: add Europe sd card to Garmin 660

No. When you plug in the SD card, the Nuvi will load the map from your SD card. Once you get to the main menu, select the wrench symbol, then the map symbol and then "map info". You should see both the US and Europe map. Make sure the Europe map is checked. You can uncheck the US map. This is how you switch between maps. The reason why you have to have the extra map on the SD card is because the Nuvi can only have one map on it's internal drive, one at a time.

However, backing up your US map is a good idea.

Good luck,
- Jim

The device uses SD cards actually. They will not however work with TOPO maps or Bluechart. They are primarily for loading media or city street maps for other country's.

Forgot Password on my Garmin and want reset


Hi,
I have tried this on my Garmin 205:
1) Turn the GPS while holding on the lower-right corner of the screen as the GPS powers up. Keep your fingers there until a message box appears. 2) Select "Yes" when the message box asks if you want to clear all user data. As a result, all original settings will be restored and any saved items will be immediately erased. You can now reset your password.
Before doing this procedure, please do a backup of your SD-micro card by copying the contents to another similar memory card.

Lost maps


You do not give very much information to go on.
Perhaps you have downloaded some data such as routing or some other details from your computer via "MapSource". If so AND you have a mini SD card in the GPS, you have overwritten the SD card with the data from MapSource ...the map data on the SD card is now gone!
But the MapSource Data remains.
If you have copied the original data on the SD card, just copy and paste to re-place it.
If NOT you will need to contact Garmin to get a new SD data card.

What you have to do to prevent this in the future is to temporarily remove the Data Card from the Garmin GPS, then download the MapSource data from your computer. Then the MapSource Data goes to the GPS on-board memory.

Garmin Nuvi 200 Maps Disappeared


Hi,
Hope this helps!

I wanted to add maps to my 250W. I found the maps I wanted on a Torrent. However, many searches around various forums never revealed how to install these. Found the following through reading and experimentation.

1. Downoaded map image file GMAPSUPP.IMG. Download also gave me "Use code XXX when generating unlock code for maps"
2. Downloaded Garmin Unlock Generator 1.3 by JetMouse
3. Looked on my GPS to find the UnitID
4. Entered the UnitID into Garmin Unlock Generator. Ignore the GM XT device unlock code and the top Generate button.
5. Selected Map Product as Custom and entered the code given for the downloaded image file.
6. Hit the bottom create button to generate a 25 digit code.
7. Download Img2Gps and run
8. Click Load Folder to load the image file. Select the tick next to it.
9. Check the Use Unlock Key option and paste the 25 digit code in.
10. Load a blank SD card into your Garmin
11. Connect the Garmin to your PC using a USB cable. You should see two dirves in windows: one is the Garmin and the other is the "Removable Disk" SD card.
12. Create a folder called "Garmin" on the SD card
13. Select Folder/Card in Img2GPS
14. Click "Copy Maps". Select the folder /Garmin on the SD card. You may need to click copy again.
15. Upload will take a while.
16. You should now see a file GMAPSUPP.IMG on the SD card in the /Garmin directory.
17. Create a new text file called GMAPSUPP.UNL in the same directory (make sure it does not have a hidden .txt extension).
18 copy the 25 digit unlock key into this file.
19. Close the file.
20. Disconnect the Garmin.
21. On Startup it should load your original maps and the new ones.

Evespan is frozen up at the start,whAT can I do


You need to test the SD card to make sure it's reading OK. Next step if it is OK, reformat the card and copy the files from the original cd that came with the unit, on to the SD card and that should fix the problem. If the SD card is defective, just get a new 1 or 2 gig SD card and copy the files on that card. It's ALWAYS helpful to have an extra SD card as a backup. If you don't have the original cd, I have the original as well as the new N30 version software for the Nav-Cam 2007. Joe

Tom Tom XL


The One XL can only read from internal OR sd card...
So, if you want the device to boot from the sd card, it need system files installed on the sd card...

So, try this:
- BACKUP !!
- Copy ALL content from internal memory to sd card.
- Insert sd card, and boot the device.

It should know boot from sd card, not internal memory...

SD card problem


The most likely cause for the RED CROSS is that some files are missing or corrupted on the SD card. This can also occur if someone has accidently dragged and dropped files on the SD card. ie. if a folder or file has been accidently dropped into a different folder. For instance you could drag and drop the maps folder into the voices folder. In this case the unit wouldn't load up if you had no maps although the maps would still be on the SD card but would be in the wrong place. We all know that files on media can be damaged or become corrupted so its always worth making a GOOD BACKUP of any sd card so that should this problem arise you can reinstall the backup.
If you have no luck with your SD card , you could try borrowing a card off someone you know and make a copy of it then activate that copy by using the original activation code together with the device code. .... good luck .
