Ok, so you want to upgrade the map on your Nuvi. You connect your Nuvi to the PC, you go to the Garmin website and your told that you don't have enough memory left on your Nuvi for the upgrade.
What can you do?
It seems every year, the map file gets larger and requires more free space on your Nuvi.
Not all Nuvi's are created alike. Some Nuvi's have more memory than others. Some Nuvi's, like the lower-end 2xx/2xxW series have such a limited memory, that they can only hold the lower 48 states map.
So, if your Nuvi has adequate storage space (1.6GB required for 2014) but you can't upgrade to a newer map due to a "not enough memory space" warning, there are a few things you can try to free up memory.
1. Delete any MP3's or photos that you may have added.
2. Delete any unused voices that you don't need.
3. Delete any unused vehicles that you don't need.
4. Delete any screen snapshots that you may taken with your Nuvi.
5. Delete the GUPDATE.GCD file.
6. Delete the PDF user manual.
You can always copy these files over to a folder on your PC before you delete them from your Nuvi.
Don't delete any files that you don't know what they are, as they could affect the normal operation of your Nuvi.
If you don't want to clear up free memory on your Nuvi, you may try loading the map onto a SD card.
When you update the unit you are given selections based upon how much memory is available on your unit. With each map release, the map sizes become larger. On the 2xx series, you may not have had enough memory to have both the US and Canada map, so it probably only installed the lower 48 states. You will need to install the map on an SD card in order to have both maps on the unit.
Tough the picture frame states 1000 photos, it really depends on the size of the picture. To resolve this purchase a 2 or 4 gb memory card and download your pictures onto the card. You can insert the card in the slot of the picture frame and then connect to your computer and download your pics from your computer directly onto the memory card.
Well, in any device that has internal memory, some of the stated memory is kept for the purpose of the software used to make the device work, which means that the memory it says is unused, is used for the software in your device. So, that means that you might have to look for a different map that is smaller in size.
