It is the problem of system software inside the unit not in the SD card. Try to update the software to fix the problem in the unit. You can go to http://www.nokia.com/ and get an update. Since it depends on what country you live, I can't give you a more specific link, but if you post the country I will.

You have a few corrupted files internally. This is a message that might be misleading. Contact Rand Support to
obtain a new update SD Card to upgrade you to the new version and maps. The update SD Card will not remove your user
data. Be sure to have your serial number handy,

Try to fix the sd card with some recovery software (recuva or similar) and transfer the data to a new card. If you have the installation disk, use that to copy the data to a new card. Do not use the corrupted card, since you might lock up the device for good.

it would appear that the map card you have inserted does either not have the maps or the system on it , or that it is in the wrong format that the unit expects to read.

Nope, the data will stay there, you just insert the SD card, use the wrench symbol/select map/select about/ tick the Australia map on/the usa map off/ and you're garmin just went Aussie.

You can download the US basemap for the 500 at
http://www.megaupload.com/it/?d=EJTNQH03
Rename it BASEMAP.MGI
Then copy it in the directory "background maps" in the SD card of your 500, by using a SD card reader/writer.
Insert the SD card in your 500 and connect it to your PC; then turn it on;it will turn on regularly, because the basemap in the card will be detected; turn it to USB file transfer mode, and copy the basemap from the SD card to the directory "background maps" of the 500.

Finedrive 400 Maps & data card


Ok So I now have these 2 files on my pc, virus free. One is the Map_SD and one is the Install_SD. I unzipped them to folders of the same name.

Can I simply copy and paste both folders into a 1gb sd card and it will work ( I have to buy an sd card so Id like to make sure)

Thanks

Have problems with the loading of the map XPC415S. Australia East coast. Will this map work with this unit?


Any bluechart that has been preloaded on an SD card should work.  Did you purchase your chip with the data preloaded or did you download it yourself?  If you downloaded it yourself, try erasing the sd card, format it, then insert the blank card in the 420 and power it up. This somehow preps the chip for the data download.  Then download the bluechart onto the chip and try again.  There is some ambiguous wording in the download screen that makes it look like some kind of error, try the download anyway and most of the time it will work. After the download is complete it should list the bluechart software version on the screen along with some other software info.  If the operating system software is not v2.5 or higher, you may need to download a software update first.
