Navman in no longer offering map support for it's iCN 510. This means if there is a new road or community, this unit will not recognize it.
I am really mad about this. I spent $400 2 years ago for something that will not have anymore map updates. Here is there reply when I wrote to them about it. Class action suit anyone?
Thank you for contacting Navman Technical Support.
We do apologize for the inconvenience. Navman has decided not to release further map updates for these device due to changes in technology over the last year. We have changed the chipset and software platform and are unable to update this device. The Navman 500 series was released with an updated map version last 2005.
If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us, we'll be more than happy to help.

HOW TO INSTALL CN NA 2009NT ON A STREETPILOT C330
The CN NA 2009 NT mapset is too large to be installed in the C330 without putting part of it onto an SD card. My recommendation is to use MapSource to build an image file containing the lower 49 states, PR & the USVI and upload it into the internal memory as a new 'gmapprom.img' file, and then build a new 'gmapsupp.img' file for an SD card containing Alaska & Canada.
Start the process by using MapSource to create a new 'gmapsupp.img' file, choosing the lower 49 states plus PR/USVI. Make sure that the total mapset size is no more than 975MB (930MiB) MAXIMUM. Anything that's very much larger will cause the installation to fail, due to insufficient internal memory. Note: Even though MapSource lists the mapset size in "MB", it actually measures it in "MiB". DO NOT EXCEED 930.0 MAPSET SIZE AS LISTED IN MAPSOURCE! (Can you get away with "just a little bit more"? Yes, you can, but why push it when you can simply put the rest on an SD card? Otherwise, you'll spend 40 minutes uploading it to your C330, only to have it fail at 99%. No fun... )
After selecting these maps tiles, choose 'Transfer > Send to Device...', but do NOT select your C330 as the destination for your new 'gmapsupp.img' file; instead, choose to send it to a blank 1GB (or larger) SD card plugged into one of your USB ports by way of an appropriate adapter (or to the 'C:\Garmin\' folder on your primary hard drive if you're running a specially-modified MapSource executable). MapSource will automatically create a 'Garmin' folder on your SD card and create your new 'gmapsupp.img' file within it.
Once you've successfully accomplished this task, copy the new 'gmapsupp.img' file to your hard drive's 'C:\Garmin\' folder (unless that's where you sent it in the first place, as noted above), then re-name it 'gmapprom.img'.
Next, repeat the process, selecting Alaska plus all Canadian provinces instead. Do NOT select any of the U.S. map tiles you selected the first time around. Capiche? This time, however, after creating the new 'gmapsupp.img' file on your SD card, do NOT copy it to your hard drive and do NOT re-name it. Just plug your SD card into your C330.
Finally, we're almost ready to upload the first file you created -- now called 'gmapprom.img' -- into your C330. First, we have to make sure you have a copy of Garmin's WebUpdater package installed. Open your 'C:\Garmin\' folder. Is there a 'WebUpdater' folder there? Yes? Great! Look inside and you should see a file named 'WebUpdater.exe'. If you've got it, you're almost there.
You don't have WebUpdater installed? Go get it and install it; it's a free download from Garmin. I'm using Windows XP; be sure to get the Windows version that's right for you. (To the best of my knowledge, this procedure does not work on a Mac. Sorry... ) http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
Now that you've got it installed, do the following:
- Right-click on an unoccupied area of your Windows Desktop; when the menu pops up, choose 'New', then 'Text Document'.
- Double-click this document; this will open up a brand new blank document in NotePad (or whichever text editor you've chosen).
- Copy and paste the following line of text into it...
C:\Garmin\WebUpdater\WebUpdater.exe /upload_file rgn=49 path=C:\Garmin\gmapprom.img -autorun usb /i
- Select 'File > Save' then 'File > Exit'.
- Re-name the file to 'C330_Map_Update.BAT'
- With the C330 connected to the PC by USB (your drivers have already been installed previously, yes???), double-click on your new 'C330_Map_Update.BAT' file.
- Sit and watch as the WebUpdater application opens up a command-line window and copies your new 'gmapprom.img' mapset into your C330!
- It will take approximately 35-40 minutes if all goes well.
-Don't forget, you'll need to have previously entered your 25-character unlock code into MapSource. That unlock code must be specific to your C330; just because your Nuvi's unlock code allows you to create mapsets in MapSource doesn't mean that those mapsets will work in your C330!

I have the same problem of the Nuvi 850 being recognized by webupdater. I downloaded 4.30 firmware update using this link http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4043 plug the unit in and ran the update. It will ask you to disconnect once it is done. The unit will boot up after a few update progress bars. Plug it back in and launch webupdater.

It took a nap...
Waking up your c330...
If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers
