Either you have a bad micro SD card or you are loading more data than the card can hold.

You will need slightly less than 2GB of memory load load USA and Canada all together at the same time.

You can also try buying an external card reader and instead of loading to the garmin load the map data onto the micro SD card from the reader.

How do I update the maps on my garmin i3 streetpilot? is there a free download?

Garmin allows you one free update for your maps as long as you do it within 60 days of your day of purchase. You have to download it with your computer and then use the USB cable that should have come with your receiver to transfer the update to your GPS. After the initial free update the charge is $100.00 per year or $200.00 for lifetime updates.

Error when downloading map updates

Try using a different website where you can download the maps for free. These should work. If they don't, you might need a software update from the same web site before getting more maps:

Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS cannot load map to memory card

The Garmin C340 comes preloaded with maps while the I3 require that the maps be installed onto a micro sd card.

You can place the micro SD card into a SD adapter and use a regular card reader to download your maps. When the software ask for 'Device' to download to use the drop down arrow and find your drive letter associated with the card reader. Using a card reader will be much faster since the it is ubs 2.0 vs ubs 1.1

You could also go to Garmin website and download and install the USB drivers, see link below.

Cannot load map in my Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS

i dont think you can upload maps to an i3, it can only load pre-loaded maps on micro-sd cards.
