I am trying to download the Mexico 2011 map and the download stops because it states I do not have enough space. They advised a 4 GB SD chip which I purchased and installed. The download still stops and it...


When you go to download the map by default it tries to download it to the satnav i.e. not the SD card. When the website recognises the satnav it shows it in a drop box with a drop-down arrow. Click the drop-down arrow and it should give you the option to download the map to your computer. Download it to the hard drive.

After it's downloaded it may begin the install automatically. If not click the START button on your computer and go to GARMIN. In the garmin menu click MAPINSTALL to begin the installation.

When the install program finds your satnav and you get the option to install the map there again click on the drop-down arrow and select the drive letter of the SD card. This will be different to the drive letter for your satnav. The map will then be installed to your SD card.

Before you begin to install to the SD card you should know that it can be very hard to get get the 200W, and other satnavs of the same age, to run the map from SD cards. It will install to it without problem but when you try to operate the satnav then it cannot load the map and will close down again unless you remove the SD card. I recently had this problem with a garmin nuvi 760 and contacted garmin about it. They told me the problem is that 4 Gb SD cards are SDHC which operate differently from SD. They said to get a class 2 SDHC card. (You can identify the class by the small figure on the card. It will be either 2, 4, 6, 8, or 10). Before you install the map format the card. Also use webinstaller to check that you have the latest version of operating software on your satnav.

Format the SD card with "Panasonic SD Formatter" available from http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/sd/download/sd_formatter20.html
rather than the standard windows format function. Select the fast format option and be sure you have selected the drive letter of your SDHC card as it will format your hard drive just as easily if you select it by accident or your satnav.

To update your software you can download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
Connect your satnav to the computer and run the program. It will search for any updates to your software.
Class 2 SDHC cards are available on ebay if you can't find one in the shops.
After failing to get mine to work on a class 4 SDHC 4Gb card I followed their instructions and it worked for me. Hope it works for you too.

720 go wont let me download music onto it wont let me operate it on the computer


Have you installed an expansion memory card in the 720? Sometimes it wont let you download music because you have filled up the internal memory. You need to put music on to the separate expansion card. BUT... when connecting to the computer to update map corrections and software, if you have not selected INTERNAL MEMORY when it connects, it won't be able to find the tom tom software, so it will just think you have another external USB hardrive attached. SO... take the expansion card out of the tom tom, then connect the tom tom to the computer in the normal way - Voila, suddenly it now sees the tom tom and you can update software. But do not download any more music to the internal memory. Ultimately you will have to format the EXTERNAL expansion card to clear it of any tom tom software updates, then download ONLY MUSIC to the external card. Do not hit Update My Tom Tom while connected to the external card - only do this when connected to the internal memory.

How do you download music to your gps


You do not download music to the GPS, put music files onto a SD card and then put that card into the GPS. You have to remove the Map SD card to do this so you cannot play music and use the GPS at the same time.

Reformating card


I deleted TomTom Home from my computer. I downloaded a version of Home just for Mac OS 10.4 users and rebooted. Then I followed the directions and it downloaded all of my maps, etc to the original TT SD card. I also set up my cell phone with a bluetooth connection.

Didn't need to reformat the new SD card I had bought because the original card had enough room for everything.

Thank you for asking.

- Put some mp3 somgs in there, and they will appear in the Music and Media option on the unit...

Any more questions, please don't hesitate.. ;-)

To download


The manual is helpful isn't it?

Your music and pictures need to be installed onto a SD memory card. Take an empty card and copy the MP3 or pictures onto the card. Install the card into the GPS. Use the correct player (for pics or MP3) and see if it detects the music on the memory card.

It seems like it works the same way if you were to put music or photos onto a Palm. It may need a special folder on the card to read the photos or MP3s. I would put it into the GPS first, let the GPS format it, and see if it creates folders for them.

How do you get SD cards to play ???


Are the songs in MP3 format? Typically you connect the GPS to the PC using the USB interface and using Windows Explorer, drag & drop the MP3 files into the GPS's MP3 subdirectory.

Then on the main screen, select travel tools and then the MP3 player. Select browse and choose a song.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
