On these units maps are definitely on the SD card. I presume you have the card? If so, then the card and map data may be corrupt. If you don't have the card, contact Magellan, and see if you talk them into a replacement for a small fee. Many Manufacturers consider SD Card replacement as a "map upgrade", and will therefore charge more. I hope you get it worked out. Thanks, Bill

How do I update my Nextar x3-08 gps so the new roads will show up ?


visit Nextar.com to order your desired maps update and Check the overview description to see which SD card lists your GPS model number and serial number. Order the matching card.

Remove the existing SD card. This is usually found in a thin, rectangular slot on the side of the Nextar GPS.

Insert the SD card with the maps update into the empty SD card slot. Press until it clicks into place.

Reset the unit by pressing the "Reset" or pushing a pin into the "Reset" hole.

Click the "Navigation" button to have the maps automatically update on the GPS.

New purchased North america map.


I am assuming that, without being a GEEK, you are sufficiently proficient with a computer. I will describe the procedure with all the necessary details. I use Windows XP and all folders I refer to are in Windows OS hierarchy. I have tried all except starting from the SD card, I happen not to have a 2GB card ready.
I suggest you read the whole post, think about its feasability from your point of view, and proceed from there. If you have any misgivings about what I say, DO NOT DO IT. I shall NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR GPS.

First of all you should install the HOME application on your computer. Then you connect your GPS to the computer. When it asks you if you want to connect to the computer tap YES, and the HOME application will launch. You may let it perform an update (if any ) of the OS (application that manages the GPS). Do not let it make any update of the OLD map. On each screen you have a CANCEL button.

Use the TomTom Home Application to backup your device. The backup will be stored on your computer, and you will be able to restore it in case of a problems.

Disconnect your GPS and insert the SD Card in slot. Then connect the GPS to the computer and let it communicate with the HOME application.
When HOME launches it will show you the internal memory of the GPS and the SD card and you are asked to select from where to run the device. Select the external SD card.

If any thing goes wrong STOP.

In the main window of the HOME application use the right arrow to go to go to Backup and restore icon. Click the icon, HOME will restore the application and the old map, all that is on the internal memory.

If that does not work, I think you should copy the content of the backup folder \My Documents\TomTom\HOME\Backup\GO\Backup01 on the SD card. and try restarting the system from the external card.

What remains to be done is to look for the new map and put at the right place in the HOME folder.
Here I will show you the directory hierarchy in WindowsXP
On my computer the map is
\My Documents\TomTom\HOME\Download\complete\map
In this directory there is folder called North_America_2GB. It contains a 1kB activation Zip archive file, a 1.5GB map zip archive, a 6kB table of contents (. toc file) and two image files.

Once the application and the map are on the external SD card you should be able to start the device from the internal memory or the SD card. When you turn it on you will probably see two icons (one of the internal mempory and the other for the SD card) . They will be flashing for a short while. You have to tap the one that you want to start with.

Micro sd card not showing up on the gps


Have you got GB Discoverer on the card? The map should appear on the Map Information list in the Setup > Map area. Double check the placement of the map card. Also, in case you have not found it yet, there's wealth of information on the Oregon Wiki here: garminoregon.wikispaces.com

I cannot access any of the maps I loaded onto my SD card


First of all, the maps must be created and match the serial number of the GPS you will run it on. Next the maps must be transferred to the SD card in the directory /MAP_DATA The GPS always looks at this directory for any map.

My GPS is missing most maps & I cannot seem to transfer from cd


the maps are on the 1gb sd card in the side of your c220 unit.
If it's missing, get a 1gb sd card and find a computer that will accept sd cards and your cd that came with your gps, then download the maps from the cd to the sd card.
Your c220 only has 4 states on the unit itself.

The c230 has all the maps on the unit but only 1 million POIs versus 3 1/2 million on the c220
