All you need to do is go into the setup menu and select the default map ie the one that is in memory not the card. Then it won't look at the card and you can remove it. The nuvi doesn't need the card at all unless you have it looking for extras on it such as maps voices etc.3

    page 36 of the pdf manual or 30 on paper has info on additional maps.



    As far as I know, you would need to hook the unit to the computer and install the maps into the unit instead of the sdcard.

Navigation map do not show up, next turn etc. Also show message "no map info".


My problem was cured by reformatting the Mini SD card that holds the map data. I had the same problem this week with my Garmin Nuvi 265. After doing an update I received the "No Data Available" message when trying to use my GPS. After trying three days of so-called fixes I remembered that, at least in my case, the map is stored on a Mini SD card. I pulled the card from my Nuvi and popped it into the computer to see what's on there. There are 4 or 5 files associated with the map. I deleted the files and reformated the Mini SD card using the FAT32 setting. I reinistalled the card into my GPS. Prior to connecting the GPS to my PC, I uploaded the latest version of Garmin Express. Once that was loaded I reconnected the GPS and had to re-register the unit. Once that was done the software told me that there was a new update. I ran the update. Lo and behold . . . after about 25 minutes the map was successfully loaded to my Nuvi and it was working as it should.

Need to know how i update the maps card for it


The latest version of Garmin Express provides the ability to install a map update directly to an SD card.
The SD card installation option will only appear when updating a compatible device that does not have sufficient internal memory for the largest allowable map region. When using the SD card installation option, critical files are loaded to the SD card so it must remain in the device after the update to ensure full functionality. For the largest size SD card a device can use, refer to: What is the largest size Secure Digital (SD) card that an automotive device can accept?
The SD card support during the map update will only function with up-to-date software. It may be necessary to update the device's software with Garmin Express prior to updating the maps. These devices do not support the SD card option:
  • Nissan 700
  • nuvi 295
  • nuvi 300 series
  • nuvi 500 series
  • nuvi 600 series
  • nuvi 800 series
  • nuvi 805 series
  • nuvi 5000
  • StreetPilot series
  • zumo 450
  • zumo 550
  • zumo 665
For devices that do not support using the SD card with the map update application, any maps that do not fit in the internal memory can be installed to the SD card manually, using these instructions:

Garmin nuvi 200 SD card


Did you rename the file extensions? On the unit, the map file and map unlock file must be named gmapprom.img and gmapprom.unl

On the SD card they must be named gmapsupp.img and gmapsupp.unl.

Also copy your garmindevice.xml file over to the SD card too.

I have 2010 maps on a SD card for my Nuvi. Does


If you already have a map on your unit, you will have both maps. You may have to enable the map on the SD card. At the main menu, press the wrench symbol, then the map icon and then "map info". You should see all of your maps that are available to your unit. Make sure that the square boxes next to each map are checked. Thats how you turn on/off (selct) each map. If the SD card map isn't working, make sure it has a unlock code assigned to the map or it won't work on your unit. Also, the map file name on an SD card is different than the name on your unit. - Jim

Maps are locked on sd card how do I unlock them to use them?


Normally there shouldn't be a problem taking maps off of an SD card. The only time that a Garmin unit will put lock codes on maps located on an SD card is if the maps were purchased and already unlocked on another unit. If someone tries to then use those maps on a different unit the Garmin system will check to see if they have been accessed already. If they have then the unit locks them out. The only other thing that may be going on is that someone else put a password on the maps. If that is the case then you will have to get that person to give you the code.

I need help installing a map onto a gramin sat nav


No. They are refering to maps sent from the computer to the Garmin device. Maps are not transferred off the SD card to the unit. Simply insert the SD card into the device and the Garmin will read the maps from the card.
to double check follow these steps
  1. Power on the unit with the card in
  2. Press Tools
  3. Press Settings
  4. Press Map
  5. Press Info (or map info)
This page should list out both your UK and Ireland maps(old as dirt) and your new Benelux and France maps as well
