Custom Content Issues on Fiat TomTom Blue&Me 2


It can be done but its not easy.
1. Borrow a tomtom off a friend that has an older version that connects upto tomtom HOME and not My Drive connect.
2.Make a copy of the contents of that device onto the desktop of your pc. (*create a folder and call it tomtom)
3. Now on the copy, your done with the borrowed unit. Open the map folder and add the 'car' images you want into the 'brand' folder. If it doesnt exist create one in the map folder naming it 'brand'
4. Now copy everything onto a SD card
5. Go onto tomtom website and download 'tomtom content transfer assistant' and install
6. Connect your newer device to the pc and run the connect assistant.
7. Plug in the sd card when asked (connect old device)

It will then copy start up, shut down images, brand folder over to the new unit.

This should allow what ever you put in the brand folder to be displayed.

I bay n sd card with full europe maps and i put the sd on the garmin 205w but he doesnt work hi dosent show ani maps on the screen


The Nuvi should detect the maps on the SDCARD automatically. A notice appears on the screen to install the maps on your Nuvi. This will take a while to copy the maps from the SDCARD to your unit for installation. After this the maps should be able to function without the SDCARD present.

The Garmin Nuvi needs internal memory for map installation. If there's not much memory left the Map installation might fail. Remaining memory can be checked by connecting the Nuvi to a PC/MAC using an USB cable. It ill appear as an external USB drive. The properties of the USB drive shows remaining memory.

If remaining memory is under 5Gb it might not be enough for MAP install. In this case a master reset to the factory defaults clears memory. This will delete all user data so be sure to store your personal POI's in Mapsource.

A master reset starts by pressing the bottom left corner of the screen for at least 20 seconds while pressing the power button once. A question appears to clear all user data.

Maps on SD card not recognized by Garmin C330 GPS


I dont thinki the 330 handles 4Gb SD cards I think 2Gb is the maximum that is why it isd taking so long and runds out of space so cannot properly load the maps.

Can t see street names


Are the maps unlocked? You need to enter a 25 digit keycode to unlock the maps, before you download them to the memory card. What size card do you have? This since there are issues with the 256 MB cards/SP3 that have been sold the last two years. Garmin Will replace these cards with two 128 MB cards

WHAT IS SD CARD FOR??


Hello TRICOUNTY,

Your Garmin GPS has an SD card slot. You can use this slot to insert a removeable SD memory card into the unit SD memory cards for used for storage by many portable devices. The most common useage for the GPS is to view pictures taken by a digital camera (which also uses an SD card) with the GPS's picture viewer function.

I am not sure what the ads you are referring to are. Where are you seeing the ads? On the GPS screen? After inserting a SD card into the GPS?

Best Regards,
Ken

Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS cannot load map to memory card


A way around this is to insert the SD Card into the computer (SD Card reader), point the directory to the card and install the maps like that. I had to do that the first time I bought my unit because I couldn't figure it out and got frustrated. So I thought of this easy work-around.

You cannot use a sd card from another tomtom. The sd card is coded for each individual device. About the only thing you can do is to purchase a 1 gb card (no larger because it won't be supported). Insert the blank card into your unit and connect it to your pc. Go to my computer and see which drive the tt is. format the card and then open tomtom home. This will load your operating system back onto your card. I don't know if you can download a free map or not. Check the tomtom forums for more information concerning maps.
Hope this helps
