If you are trying to upgrade a map, you may have to put it on an SD card. You can free up memory by deleting any unused pictures, TTS voices (text to speech) and vehicle icons.

Nuvi 610 memory is full what can i do


Ok, so you want to upgrade the map on your Nuvi. You connect your Nuvi to the PC, you go to the Garmin website and your told that you don't have enough memory left on your Nuvi for the upgrade.

What can you do?

It seems every year, the map file gets larger and requires more free space on your Nuvi.

Not all Nuvi's are created alike. Some Nuvi's have more memory than others. Some Nuvi's, like the lower-end 2xx/2xxW series have such a limited memory, that they can only hold the lower 48 states map.

So, if your Nuvi has adequate storage space (1.6GB required for 2014) but you can't upgrade to a newer map due to a "not enough memory space" warning, there are a few things you can try to free up memory.

1. Delete any MP3's or photos that you may have added.
2. Delete any unused voices that you don't need.
3. Delete any unused vehicles that you don't need.
4. Delete any screen snapshots that you may taken with your Nuvi.
5. Delete the GUPDATE.GCD file.
6. Delete the PDF user manual.

You can always copy these files over to a folder on your PC before you delete them from your Nuvi.

Don't delete any files that you don't know what they are, as they could affect the normal operation of your Nuvi.

If you don't want to clear up free memory on your Nuvi, you may try loading the map onto a SD card.

Garmin Nuvi 360 says memory full cant reset


Connect the unit up to a PC and try deleting some of the unused text-to- speech (TTS) voices. Keep only the ones that you need. Delete any unused photos or MP3's...and also any unused vehicle icons on the unit. When the unit is booting, it loads in all of the vehicle icons allowing you to change the selected vehicle, so this too uses up valuable memory.

Garmin nuvi 1340 freezes on start up


If your nuvi series device is freezing on the map screen but still providing voice prompts there are two steps you can try to resolve the issue including updating the software using WebUpdater* and performing a master reset.

To download WebUpdater and update the software:
  1. Go to http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
  2. Follow the on screen instructions.
To perform a master reset on your nuvi series device: CLICK HERE

Warning: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.

The Navigator memory card will come with the a countrie's maps. Maybe you need to take the memory card into the computer and download more maps. Also try to erase the nt middle east location and start over.

Turn off the device, push and hold in right-down corner on the display, and turn on the device. Hold your finger on the display, until you see "Do you really want to erase all user data?" message. Then click "Yes"...

Hint:
All private data will be erased. The user POI's too. You can backup the file G:\Garmin\gpx\current.gpx before erasing procedure.

Memory full is being displayed when i try to go to a new destination and when i try to delete a favourite the unit turns off.


Garmin nuvi 610 T
memory full was being displayed on screen whilst on destination ,sometimes followed by route waypoint memory full .

I found by turning unit off , then holding finger on top left of screen ,and at the same time turning back on again the unit would go into maintenance mode.
Follow prompts on screen to reset waypoint memory.
Mine works as good as gold now,hope this helps!
