Mio wants people to know, especially the folks who recently bought the Mio C220, that you need to put the SD card in the unit for it to work. The Mio C220 has the maps on the SD Card, and it seems that not everyone knows to put the SD card in the unit before firing it up. No SD card means no working GPS.
Mio Says:
1. Before you power on your C220, insert the SD Card firmly into the slot on the right side of the device
2. Once the SD card has been inserted into the device, power on your C220 by pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds.
For More information check out the Mio GPS Page on the SD Card for Mio C220

  • Hard reset your device. How to do this can be found in the user manual of your device. In case you own a PDA and do not want to perform a hard reset (as this brings your device back to factory settings) you can skip this step and check if your problem is solved by only performing the second step.
  • Run the MioMap Updater tool Before running the tool, go to 'C:\Program Files\Mio Technology\MioMap v3 Updater' and delete the folder 'cache' and file 'cache.db'.This is the standard installation folder. In case you installed the program in another location, please go to this location.

At first read, seems the problem is you have too many maps installed, attemp to remove extra maps from the gps, if you need USA maps right now, and you have the maps of other countrys you might visit or need on a card or cd you and remove them from the device to free up more room for the usa maps if they are on the card.

How do I install maps on my GPS?


First you need to have Mapinstall app on your computer

Once MapInstall is installed, to load maps:
  1. Connect the Garmin device to the computer
  2. Open the MapInstall program
    • MapInstall appears in the Start menu or Start screen on Windows
    • MapInstall appears in the Applications folder on a Mac
  3. Select the device or SD card
    • If all compatible map products installed on the computer will fit completely on the selected device, MapInstall will give options to Send Maps (Mac)/Continue (Windows) or Customize
      • Send Maps/Continue will send all the maps that will fit on the device
      • Customize will allow the selection of individual map products
      • Advanced/Partial Install will allow sections of the map products to be sent without sending the whole map product
    • If all map products installed on the computer will not fit completely on the selected device, MapInstall will give the option to Continue
      • This will allow the selection of individual map products
      • Advanced/Partial Install will allow the selection of individual sections of the map products
    • If loading the map to a SD card or an older Garmin device, MapInstall will give the option to Continue
      • MapInstall will allow the selection of individual sections of the map products - similar to the Advanced/Partial Install option
  4. Click Send Maps (Mac) / Continue (Windows)
  5. Click Confirm (Mac) / Install (Windows)
  6. Click Done (Mac) / Finish (Windows)1

I updated my garmin nuvi255 and it only shows usa maps, now I lost all of Canada


When you update the unit you are given selections based upon how much memory is available on your unit. With each map release, the map sizes become larger. On the 2xx series, you may not have had enough memory to have both the US and Canada map, so it probably only installed the lower 48 states. You will need to install the map on an SD card in order to have both maps on the unit.

Yes you do have to remove the North America map, I was just checking on the specs and they do not list that it supports a memory card so unfortunately due to the lack of available space on the solid state drive that comes built into this unit you will have to do the map switchover.

How are you installing?

You need to have Mapsource running, select the Topo USA 2008 maps to show on your screen. Use the Map Select tool, and select all the maps you want to send to the unit. Then hit the Send to GPS at the top and a pop up window asks what you want to send. Select Maps.

If this is what you have done already, please come back and tell us and we'll trouble shoot from there.

Europe maps microSD card problems


You didn't mention where you live. If you live in the US and you have the SD card with the Europe maps plugged in, it's going to grab the Europe map first. Try going into set-up by clicking on the wrench symbol, then the maps symbol and then "map info". You should see your original map and the europe map. uncheck the europe map to get back your original map. This screen allows you to toggle between both maps.

I think all the Garmins allow to do is generate a waypoint list on your PC and upload THAT to the GPS, according to what Garmin told me about my Streetpilot C340. You also need Mapsource on the PC.
