Only one idea ... Perform hard reset. Garmin devices have often data corruption issue, that can only be solved by return to factory settings :
Device powered off, press and hold mode and Power on buttons for 10 seconds, then pulse press lap/reset button.

You will be asked for confirmation, confirm, your device should be OK then.
Also update the firmware, you'll get last fixes for data corruption ... (does not mean there are none remaining ...)

I was trying to update my map on my nuvi 1350 and it said the internal memory was full. i tried to clear up some space and i ended up deleting some folders. I did back it all up, but now it won't let me...


The only files you should delete are unused voice files (.vpm), pictures files (.jpg), sum files (.sum) and you can delete the gupdate.gcd file as it is not used once the unit has been updated. You can also delete archived gpx files (.gpx) within the gpx archive folder but do not delete the current.gpx file (this file holds your favorites) or the gpx folder. Deleting folders is not recommended. That is a good way to delete files that you may need.

You can also right click on the Nuvi's drive letter and select "tools" and run an error check on the flash drive to make sure there aren't any errors on it that may involve how much space is really free.

Lastly, you may have to limit the map region, so that the map isn't too large. For example, instead of having US & Canada on the map, perhaps only have the US with the lower 49 states. You can limit it even further by selecting lower 49 states and selecting regions like Southwest (SW) or northwest (NW) etc.

f you really want to bypass the whole memory issue, just put the map on an external micro 4GB SD card. This way, you don't have to worry about deleting anything off of the flash drive.

I hope this info helps.

Give this a try. Plug in your mobile phone to the pc. Once ask on how do you want to use it either sync,mass storage or com port just select mass storage. Once selected go to photos folder where the picture that you want to delete is located. Just drag the pic to a different location like c: drive or documents and try deleting the picture from there. Once the picture is removed it would not appear anymore on your contacts.

Disk D is for storing recovery configurations. To see what happened to your memory, go to the root directory C: from your "My Computer" icon. Scroll to the folders in the root. Right click each folder and select "Properties." The drive will add up all the memory being used by that folder. Take notes on what you have and then drill down into the folders that seem to be using more space than they should be. Delete stuff you don't need. Let me know if you have more questions.

Deleting songs


Connect the device to your computer. Click MY COMPUTER on your desktop. You should see the device in the window that opens. Click on it. It should appear as GPX Device or the like. Double click on that, then Portable Memory will appear, double click, then double click the Music folder. The window will now display all the music files on your device. Choose which ones you no longer want and hit the delete button on your keyboard.

I cannot delete folders from my GPX they are apparently "Read Only" files...help!


You may try to delete your folders with Unlocker
If it doesn't you could try in dos (run cmd):
attrib -s -h -r "location" /s
(location being where the folder is located.)
This should remove any Systems file flag, read only flag or hidden file flag.
del /F "folders"

Not working


If you have the manual in digital form, please post it on this site. Search the manual for a way to reset the device, if you can't find it try disconnecting it from any power source(AC, batteries, etc) for a few days. On showing Hidden files/folders: from windows explorer, while inside the GPX external drive- click on tools>folder options>view>hidden files and folders Good luck
