    Please look in your Garmin directory and verify if you have the following files:



    gmapbmap.img - this is your basemap
    gmapprom.img - this is your preloaded detail maps



    Which one are you missing?

SOURCE: deleted maps...

You can put the sd card into a pc or laptop and try to undelete them. If you are lucky the files are still there but just marked as erased.

You can try to use the update function on Garmin (you need to connect your nui via the usb cable to do this) and it may allow you to get them for free.

Other than those I can't think of anyway that won't take a chunk out of your wallet.

File deletion problem from Garmin c550


If your undelete program lets you undelete the _P3 folder, do it. Then try renaming it to MP3. See if this helps. This is the folder in which all of your music is stored. If it allows you to change the folder name, you should now see (and be able to delete) all of your music files stored on the GPS.

MY GARMIN NUVI 760 says north on a road when it should show south


Sounds like the map needs an update if it doesn't show roads that actually exist.

Uploading pictures into a Garmin GPS


Hi, you should be able to copy photos from your PC via the USB cable. I saved mine onto the SD card. You can also access your Garmin as if it was a hard drive using "My Computer". Just click on the "Garmin" drive, navigate to the appropriate folder (I think there's a folder called Garmin, then a Photos sub-folder). Just delete the photos you don't want.

Memory full


****HELPFUL HINT**** Before you do anything with the Garmin unit, you might want to make a folder somewhere on your computer and name it something like NUVI CONTENTS. Then copy and paste or drag and drop, however you want to do it, all the contents of your NUVI. This way if you do something you didn't mean to, like delete a language, you can just put it back in.

Now what you need to look for are 3 folders, one is the HELP folder which is pretty useless once you get the hang of the Garmin unit. As a matter of fact I never even used the HELP button on the Garmin unit, because it's so easy to use.

The other folder is the VOICE folder, open it and start deleting the languages you are not likely to use or need. Make sure you DO NOT delete American English, unless you want to stick to British English. Of course I am assuming you need English, but regardless it goes for whichever language you want to keep. Assuming you are keeping American English these are the names of the files you need to keep in the VOICE folder english_american_.sum and English_American_.vpm.

The last folder is the TEXT folder, open it and delete all the files if you want. American English is the default so it won't go away, but regardless you'll have a back up anyways...RIGHT? LOL

I hope this helps you, and if you have any questions lay them on and I'll see what I can do for you. But I will say that I just bought my Nuvi back in April of this year so I am still learning a lot about it. I am working on tweaking the XML file so that it will ready more than 1 map on the SD, right now we are limited to 1 map per SD card.

Garmin C510 wont install download Europe maps to Unit


Take a look at the Garmin support page - there is a Question " Why do I get a not enough space message on my Nuvi2xx when trying to update my mapping?"
It tells you how to remove the unused voice files to free up space.
I have a Nuvi 255WT and deleting the voice files alone was not enough, so I set about removing a lot of other stuff *** NOTE THAT IF YOU FOLLOW WHAT I DID, DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK **** it worked for me but there is always the risk of deleting a file that the device needs.
Also I was stupid and didn't try and save the files to a directory on my MAC before deleting them, from the satnav - worth a try so that if you can do that you have a chance of recovering one that you delete if you want it back.
First I also removed the un-needed text files - leaving only the 3 British-English files
Then I removed all of the POI files that were clearly examples/samples
Then I removed all of the Vehicle files except the one I was using
Then I removed all of the large ExtData files - now that was the one that caused me the most worry as I wasn't certain what they were there for!
This gave me a bit over 140Mbyte of free space which was enough to install the 2010 update for all of Europe.
Now I don't know whether the C510 has the same amount/less/more memory than the 255WT - so this may or may not work for you.
I didn't have an SD card available, which is why I went this far. I am going to get one and see if I can find out how to load the maps onto that.
cheers - Jeremy

Garmin Nuvi 200 2009 Map Update


Here's what worked for me. Nuvi 200 brand new w/2008 trying to upgrade to 2009.
After registering and download the map 2009, I started the install. I go to a point where I was told I needed 37MB more room. I went thru windows explorer and looked in the Nuvi. I went into the language folder and moved all of the languages I didn't need to my hard drive. I then went into the HELP folder of the Nuvi and again removed the all of the languages I did not need. I then went back to the install program and hit retry. All good from there. I hope this helps.

Wrong Turns


Is that same road that they told you to turn onto the same road around there somewhere? It may be that it's just off or something.
