If you need to buy a map that's not already on your satnav go to www.garmin.com and click on the myGarmin tab at the top of the screen. Log in and click on the myMaps tab. On this screen you'll see the map that's on your satnav and also, on the left side of the screen, the option to "Shop for more maps". If you want to buy a new map click on "Shop for more maps" and follow the prompts
I'm not 100% sure but we were told that there isnt' enough memory to hold all the maps in the c330 because the new maps are larger than the memory in the c330. Does it have an area to choose where you can take out Canada? If so then it has enough memory to load the maps minus Canada. Hope it helps you a bit.
In order to use the C330 in foreign countries, you need to purchase the maps for those countries and insert the SD card into your unit. You will then have to select the proper maps to use on the unit. These maps are available for purchase at www.garmin.com.
As far as getting around closed roads, your unit will automatically recalculate your route if you are unable to take the suggested route. You can purchase updated maps, but I do not believe this will help you will roads closed for repair.
Unfortunately, they don't offer free map updates. You can purchase map updates for around $70, but they won't update them for free.
Also, the base model of the C330 does not have enough memory to store the entire 2008 Map Update. Unless you have more memory than it came with stock, you may have to choose which maps to include. For instance, in North America you have to choose between US and Canada - there's insufficient memory to hold both.
(Untried) For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.
Must have: 1 - Street pilot C330 2 - 512mb SD card 3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice) 4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America
What to DO:
1 - connect the GPS to the computer 2 - Insert the Map update disk 3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States (Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)
4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"
5 - Open the folder called "img"
6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)
7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"
8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)
9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)
10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)
11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.
12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.
When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.
I assume the c330 is still working ok apart from this problem. do you mean hard disk or memory card ? either way you need to make sure that you have not duplicated your maps first of all you can also free up space by removing additional voices that you do not use also is it a 2 gb card?
