For a master reset on the GPS V Hold down the ZOOM OUT and QUIT buttons while powering up. (This only works with units that run version 2.20 of the firmware and earlier.)

You will loose all info (waypoint, routes, tracks) when you do this though.

7200 won't hold full North America upgrades. Can memory be increased?


Try this: Maximize your GPS Memory Your Garmin StreetPilot 7200 has limited storage space for waypoints, routes, and tracks. Once you reach that limit, your GPS can't hold any more data. Smart ExpertGPS users have figured out how to eke out every last bit of memory space on their Garmin GPS receivers. Before each outdoor adventure or visit to a project site, they use ExpertGPS to back up the contents of their GPS, and then clear the GPS data memory. They can then download as much data as possible onto their GPS (leaving some room for GPS data collection out in the field). When they get back, they use ExpertGPS to upload all of their Garmin waypoints, routes, and tracks onto their computer and save it. Once they've backed up the new data from their GPS, they can clear the memory again, keeping their GPS ready for their next trip.

Hello  Dimin,
If you have more than one harddrive, make sure that you are installing the program in the harddrive with the 274 GB of free space, and not in the other harddrive that mightnot have that 3083 MBs of free space

My garmin nuva 1300 takes a really long time to load points of interest that i search for. For example, I typed in "Ocean City" to determine how to get to the beach, but it took a good ten...


I have a Garmin Dezl - which gets slower with less available memory. I can simulate slow behavior by planning a very long route - reducing available memory to the extreme. Unfortunately the Nuvi & Dezl (based on the Nuvi) doesn't have a function to clear up memory space.

In my situation I had to master reset the Garmin to get memory back. This clears all user data (including all POI's, favourites) and restores the factory state. A master reset works by holding the right bottom corner of the screen while pressing the power on button once.

Hello,

Some units do have memory limitations that wont let them accept the most current map upgrade my recommendation is contact garmin and have them instruct you on how to apply your update to an SD card or often they can provide partial maps that would allow you to load most of NA on the GPS.

Hope this helps!

How do I obtain more storage space on my Zumo 550


I don't believe that there is much else you can do but before i say that try using a 4GB sd card, think they can handle that. These units have a certain amount of memory reserved for system use and they will allow nothing else to use it. In the event that something does use it you get the "not enough memory to run program, Shutting down" error. Always fun

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.,

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
