SDcard memory too big..?

I bought an Acer e310 destinator satnav with no memory card, it did however come with the map software on cd with I installed on a 4GB SD card, but when inserted into the sat nav it says ''maps not found'', the device bleeps when the card is inserted but doesn't sem to be able to read it, no message comes up or anything, just when you click on navigation ''maps not found'', please advise, could it be too much memory on the card, the map file is only about 280 MB...?

I called Nextar and you have to let its battery drain completely and then plug it in to charge for 5 hours. I guess it a glitch in the system :(

The GPS system sounds like it may be a Garmin brand and the mapset you're talking about sounds a lot like the "Mad Maps" for "Route 66". The Mad Map collection consists of specialized maps for particular use or interest. There are maps other than the Route 66 map in the collection available.

Depending on GPS model, you may be able to download new maps to the GPS or obtain new maps on memory cards from Garmin directly. The Route 66 map card may not be large enough to hold current US maps - new US maps require 1 to 2 GB of memory.

How to update your Garmin Satnav maps


To update your garmin satnav map you must have your satnav registered. If it's already registered skip to paragraph 2 below.

1. To Register your Garmin Satnav
  • Connecty our satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com
  • Select your country
  • Click on Register your garmin product
  • Follow the prompts
Note you will be asked to create a username and password. Write them down and keep them safe as you'll need them again anytime you want to update your maps

2. To update your maps

  • Connect your satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com
  • Click on myGarmin and log in
  • Click on myMaps.
  • If there's an update available it will be shown beside the name of your map.
  • Click on Get Update and follow the prompts.
Note map files are large so you'll need a broadband connection to download them. If you don't have broadband you'll have an option to buy the update on DVD.

  1. If The Map Is Too Large To Install To Your Satnav
    When you go to download the map by default it tries to download it to the satnav i.e. not the SD/Mini SD card. You need to change this. When the website recognises the satnav follow the prompts. It will give you 3 options for the download destination.
    • Download to satnav,
    • Download to Computer and Satnav or
    • Download to computer.
    As the website is updated, from time to time, the method of selecting the download destination changes. Sometimes it shows up as a drop box with a drop-down arrow showing your satnav name. Click the drop-down arrow and select the option to download the map to your computer. Sometimes it shows the 3 options as text headings with tick boxes beside them and you get to tick the option you want. Whichever way it shows up select the option to download the map to your computer. This will install it on your computer's hard drive.

  2. After it's downloaded the map should begin to install automatically. (If not double click on it and it will). It should be allowed to install to your satnav first as Garmin will not allow it to install to your SD/Mini SD card unless it's first partly installed to the satnav. This is so they can ensure that it's installed to the correct satnav.

  3. To Install The Full Map To Your SD/Mini SD Card
    To install the map to your SD/Mini SD card, insert the card into the card slot of your satnav and connect it to the computer. Click the windows start button on your computer. Then click the GARMIN progam and then MAPINSTALL. This runs the map installation program. When the install program finds your satnav and you get the option to install the map there again by default. Click on the drop-down arrow, where it shows your satnav as the destination, and select the drive letter of the SD/Mini SD card. This will be different to the drive letter for your satnav. The map will then be installed to your SD/Mini SD card.


  4. Problems With Older Nuvi Satnavs Reading Maps On 4 Gb Or Higher SD Cards
    When you install a map to an SD card older nuvi satnavs can have difficulty getting the satnav to read it. It will install to it without problem but when you try to operate the satnav then it cannot load the map and will close down the satnav unless you remove the SD card. The reason for this is that 4 Gb and higher cards are SDHC which operate differently from SD. To solve this problem you should use a class 2 SDHC card, which is the slowest type available. You can identify the class by the small figure on the card. It will be either 2, 4, 6, 8, or 10. Before you install the map format the card as described below. Also use webinstaller to check that you have the latest version of operating software on your satnav.

  5. Format the SD card with "Panasonic SD Formatter" available from http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/sd/download/sd_formatter20.html rather than the standard windows format function. Select the fast format option and be sure you have selected the drive letter of your SDHC card as it will format your hard drive or indeed your satnav just as easily if you select one of them by mistake.

  6. To update your software or check that you have the latest version, you can download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
    Connect your satnav to the computer and run the program. It will search for any updates to your software.
Class 2 SDHC cards are harder to find in shops today as they are being replaced by the faster classes. They are however still easily available on ebay if you can't find one in the shops.

You need to download the map to your compute rather than the SD card. When downloading the default destination is the satnav but you can change it to your computer. When it's installed to your computer you then click the windows START button and in the list of programs you'll find a GARMIN folder with a program called MAPINSTALL. Connect the satnav to your computer with the SD card in. Run MAPINSTALL and select the SD card as the destination.

You can get more details of how to do it at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
Note maps installed to SD cards do not always work with Garmin Nuvis. To give it every chance of success please follow the instructions at the above link about formatting the SD card.

The map takes approx 3 Gb of storage space so you need a 4 Gb memory card. When you download the map to your computer run it and install part of the map to your satnav. After this click the start button (bottom left of your computer screen) and find the menu folder "Garmin". In the Garmin folder you'll find "Mapinstall" With the memory card in your satnav, and the satnav connected to your computer run mapinstall being sure to select the memory card as the destination. (It will be by default your satnav not your memory card). When the installation is complete the satnav will automatically switch to the map on your memory card when needed. You'll find detailed instructions of how to prepare the memory card and install the map on it at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

Hello how can I update my Carmin nuvi 660 and download the map of new zealand ? thank you


Details of how to update your garmin satnav are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

To get a new map of NZ you need to have your satnav registered. Details of how to do so are at the above link also. When you're registered go to www.garmin.com
  • Click on the myGarmin tab
  • Log in using your username and password
  • Click on the myMaps tab
There you'll see the map installed on your satnav. On the left hand side of the screen you'll see in blue writing a link saying "Shop for new maps" and then on "View additional maps for this product"

Scroll down as far as the map of NZ and select it. Follow the prompts.
If the map you already have on your satnav is not NZ and you want to save that too it's unlikely that both will fit on your satnav. If this is the case follow the instructions, at the above link, under the heading If the map is too large to install on your satnav for downloading to your computer and installing from your computer to your memory card rather than the satnav. Be advised maps installed on memory cards will not always work on garmin nuvi satnavs particularly if the memory card is larger than 2 Gb. Please read the article at the link above before buying.

Where can I buy a map card with the United Kingdom info be bought in Canada?


Go to www.garmin.com and if you've registered your satnav log into myGarmin.
Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the page.
There you will see the maps on your satnav and you'll have the option to buy new maps.
When you're downloading the map be sure to download it to your computer and NOT your satnav. Otherwise you'll overwrite the map already on the satnav.

When it's downloaded click the windows START button and you'll find a folder called GARMIN. Click this and you'll find an item called MAPINSTALL. Use this to install the map to an SD card which you must have inserted into your satnav. It's best to use a 2Gb SD card not an SDHC. Again be sure you do not install the map to your satnav but to the memory card. You get the option of where the map will be installed during the set up process.

If you have not registered your satnav you can do so by going to www.garmin.com. Click on the drop-down arrow and select your country. Click on myGarmin and then on REGISTER YOUR GARMIN DEVICE. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe as you'll need them anytime you need to update your maps or buy new ones.
There's more information on installing maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps if you need more help.

How do I download maps from the Garmin web site to the SD card in my Nuvi 5000?


To install the map on an SD card you first need to download it to your computer. When you're setting up the download the website normally selects your satnav as the destination. There's a drop down arrow and when you click it you find an option to "update map on the satnav and the computer". Select this option. If the satnav can't take the full map you'll need to select the part to download to the satnav. The full map should download to your computer.
After the download is finished click START on your computer and then ALL PROGRAMS. Click on GARMIN and then on MAPINSTALL. The mapinstall program will also select your satnav as the location for installing the map. When it does click on the drop down arrow and select the drive letter of the SD card. This will install it to the SD card. Note it can take 3 to 4 hours to install depending on the map size. Don't interrupt it while it's installing or you could destroy your satnav.

I have an acer e300 and it is saying map not found how can i solve this


If you have loaded Destinator Console onto your PC from the original disc that contains the maps simply attach the SatNav to your PC and take the following steps
1. From "My Computer" identify the SatNav device from those listed in "Items with Removable Storage".
note. if your PC doesn't recognise the device try putting the memory card into a camera that you can connect to your PC.
2. Right hand click the relevant icon, and select "Format" from the drop down menu.
3. From Start Manu, All Programs - select Navigation (this will depend upon how you origianlly loaded Navigation) then select Destinator Console.
4. In the bottom right hand corner of the subsequent window there should be a box named "Target Device" - click "Change"
5. From the pop-up window select the device you have just connected. This device should now appear as the target device and it will show how much available space is on the disk.
6. Finally from the top left hand box named "Standard Maps" select - UK_Ireland-177.0 MB and click on Install/Remove Maps.

Reformating card


I deleted TomTom Home from my computer. I downloaded a version of Home just for Mac OS 10.4 users and rebooted. Then I followed the directions and it downloaded all of my maps, etc to the original TT SD card. I also set up my cell phone with a bluetooth connection.

Didn't need to reformat the new SD card I had bought because the original card had enough room for everything.

Thank you for asking.
