The micro SD card has to be between 4-8gb. Garmin Express is used to load the South American maps. Garmin Express can be downloaded from Garmin. Once installed on your PC, plug your GPS into your PC. The program should give you the option to install the South American maps to the SD card.

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: I bought a lifetime update

The internal memory of the nuvi is full. Some maps will need to be delete before any new maps can be added. Typically, the map in the nuvi is named GMAPPROM.IMG and a map installed to an SD (or SDHC) memory card is named GMAPSUPP.IMG.

1) Remove the SD card from the memory slot

2) Connect the nuvi to the computer via USB cable.

3) Open the nuvi drive.

4) Locate and delete the GMAPPROM.IMG (or GSUPPROM.IMG) file(s). Optionally copy (instead of deleting) them to your hard drive in case there is a problem wit the new map file(s).

5) Empty the Recycle Bin.

6) Retry the map update of the nuvi.

This method will take some time to perform depending on how many map segments you are sending to the nuvi. Transferring the entire map can take over an hour. A quicker way is to send the maps to the SDHC card directly by inserting the card into a card reader. This eleminates the slow Garmin card reader from the equation and transfers are done in a fraction of the time. No maps will be on the nuvi - they will all be on the memory card instead. To update the SD or SDHC card, do this:

1) Repeat steps 1 thru 5 above. This removes the maps files from the nuvi.

2) Disconnect the nuvi from the computer.

3) Connect a card reader to the computer.

4) Insert the SD or SDHC card into the reader.

5) Locate and delete the GMAPPROM.IMG (or GSUPPROM.IMG) file(s). Optionally copy (instead of deleting) them to your hard drive in case there is a problem wit the new map file(s).

6) Update the map to the SD or SDHC card.

When either method is employed, only one map file set will result. GMAPPROM.IMG or GMAPSUPP.IMG is the name of this file set. You should ensure / change the name to GMAPPROM.IMG. Any subsequent file set added should be named GMAPSUPP.IMG.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Only shows us routes not canada


I fell foul of that the other way. I have Canada maps and lent it to a friend who was going to California.

You need a map that covers Canada and it is an extra cost. The USA is in two zones, or one map does both zones.

You need to buy the Canada maps and then put it on an SD card. The map costs $84

My nuvi 3760T does not have enough space to load europe map. Can I remove preloaded north america map and reload at a later date without losing it?


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.

Need a North America SD Card map for my European Garmin nüvi 255w. Where can I buy one on line


You can buy direct from Garmin via this link. You can opt for instant download, purchase of SD memory cards or DVD ROM medium. You may also be able to buy maps at some of the outdoor stores and electronics specialty shops.

If you plan on using this GPS in North America from this point on, you might want to look into purchasing a "Lifetime Maps" subscription for about $119 instead of the one-time map purchase for $79. The subscription allows you do download updated maps up to 4 times per year, for life of the GPS. Contact Garmin Support directly for more info about this option.
