Question about Garmin BlueChart g2 Vision Western Africa Pre-Programmed SD Card
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.

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.

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.
