Re: Move Maps rom SD Card to Unit
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

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:
nuvi 300 series
nuvi 500 series
nuvi 600 series
nuvi 800 series
nuvi 805 series
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:
No, the US data is on the unit itself. Adding an SD card with maps only increases the number of maps your unit can handle, it doesn't replace existing maps. You'll have to go into settings to change the view to European maps.
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
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.
The new maps will be unlocked to your GPS using the code Garmin supplied you.
You will have to add these maps to a second SD card if your present card is full, or else purchase a larger card. Since all the Mapsource NT 2008 Europe maps are 1,395MB in size, you'll need to purchase at least a 2GB SD card.
