SOURCE: says memory full and will not work

I have Nuvi 250. Suddenly it started to say "Memory full" and "Waypoint memory full". It shows maps but d't routing.
Connected to PC I see about 52 Mb free space.
So saved files from POI folder ( custom POI) and GPX folder (current) then disconnected Nuvi and OFF.
Next step- depressing LOWER RIGHT corner of screen get ON.
I got " Are you realy want to erase all user data?"- Yes
And now problem solved!!

Yuo must again make your settings and copy poi and gpx back.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 660 lost Europe maps

Eventually managed to speak to a man at Garmin who confirmed that it was not loading any European maps because it didn't have enough spare memory to load them all. He said that he would email me instructions for freeing up sufficient memory, the email never arrived but I decided to delet all the voice languages that were no use to me and all the other language 'help' files and tried again - it worked.
At no point did I get a 'insufficiant memory' warning, which would have been very helpful, nor is there any guidance for how much memory will be required when embarking on the update. Take note Garmin...

Turn off the device, push and hold in right-down corner on the display, and turn on the device. Hold your finger on the display, until you see "Do you really want to erase all user data?" message. Then click "Yes"...

Hint:
All private data will be erased. The user POI's too. You can backup the file G:\Garmin\gpx\current.gpx before erasing procedure.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 660 touch screen freezes up. Soft

I sat on the phone for 30 minutes waiting for Garmin support when my Nuvi suddenly had no touch screen response. They had me delete a file on the device (with it hooked to my computer) then reboot and it went thru a touch screen alignment and it worked.

Sadly, it has frozen again and I don't recall the file (it had been a GCD file in all caps, that is all I know and I don't see a file in all caps any more). I will be calling support tomorrow.

My take is that it *is* a firmware thing *and* there is some way to reset the firmware.

Garmin Nuvi 360 says memory full cant reset


Connect the unit up to a PC and try deleting some of the unused text-to- speech (TTS) voices. Keep only the ones that you need. Delete any unused photos or MP3's...and also any unused vehicle icons on the unit. When the unit is booting, it loads in all of the vehicle icons allowing you to change the selected vehicle, so this too uses up valuable memory.

Nuvi 660 will not figure a route and states "the memory is full"


Haven't heard of this issue but there's a lot of surplus stuff in the memory that can be safely deleted. Try connecting to the computer so you can see the files on the nuvi. Remove a lot of unnecessary voices and text languages. If you need Turkish or whatever in the future it can always be reloaded via the free Garmin WebUpdater. If you don't have WebUpater download it anyway (from the Garmin web site) as it's an easy way to check your GPS has the latest software and bug fixes.

My Garmin 660 will no longer plot a destination...


Have you loaded a lot of JPGs or MP3s on the internal memory? If so, you have reduced the amount of memory available to the 660's OS. Not sure if the 660 stores calculated routes directly to the internal flash memory, but it is very likely, since it keeps your route when you power it down.

To unload the internal memory, consider buying an SD card - they are cheap right now. As a matter of fact, I just ordered an 8GB SD card for my 660 from Amazon for $13. The 4GB and 2GB cards are available for about $7 and $3 respectively. Drrrrrt cheap!

You can access the internal memory of the 660 on your computer with the USB cable you got with the 660. The two folders to focus on are the JPEG and MP3 folders. Simply copy these folders' contents to the root directory of the SD card, and then go into each folder in the GPS memory and delete the MP3s and JPEGs you added - should work better. The 660 will recognize the files on the card if left in folders named identically to the folders in the internal memory.

If you didn't add any content to the internal memory, that is a different issue altogether, probably something to discuss with Garmin. Could be as simple as upgrading the firmware. Make sure you select the correct version though, or it could be a fancy brick! Go here for the nuvi 660:

Good luck, and I hope this helped!

I keep getting memory full message and route waypoints full on nuvi 610/660


The Navigator memory card will come with the a countrie's maps. Maybe you need to take the memory card into the computer and download more maps. Also try to erase the nt middle east location and start over.
