SOURCE: Not enough space for maps?

The garmin does not have any space on it for maps,any additional maps are stored on a memory
card. I don't see where garmin says the size limit of the card but in most cases unless it says
SDHC memory card,then the max is a 2g sd card, I think the models 500 and over can use over a 2g card.,

SOURCE: my nuvi 3760T does not

If you have the map downloaded from the garmin website to your computer you could remove it and replace it later. However a better option might be to download the map of Europe to your computer and install it to a micro SD card. A 4 Gb card would hold the map of Europe and you don't risk losing your North America map. You can get details of how to set up the map on your micro SD card at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
While this link is mainly about how to update your maps it has a section on setting up maps on an SD/Micro SD card also.

I have recently purchased nüMaps


Since you have (2) maps, North America and Europe, you will have (2) map files on the directory. They are:

gmapprom.img (North America map)
gmapprom1.img (Europe map)

Do you see both of these file names? Do you have unlock files associated with them such as:

gmapprom.unl (North America map unlock code)
gmapprom1.unl (Europe map unlock code)

These files should be 1 gigabyte or more in file size. If they are not, then they are possibly corrupted.

I am trying to change my country from 'North America' to 'Australia' Please help. I deselected 'North America' in Tools, Settings, Map Info. Now not sure ?


First do you have a map of Australia on your satnav. If you have it should appear in Tools, Settings, Map, Map Info. Also it should be ticked or selected. If it's there all you have to do is:
  • Press WHERE TO
  • Press ADDRESS
  • At the top of the screen you'll see the last country selected i.e. North America and at the bottom you'll see CHANGE COUNTRY
  • Press CHANGE COUNTRY and select AUSTRALIA
If you don't have a map of Australia installed this won't work of course so you'll need to buy one from www.garmin.com
