Hell hbraude,

The Garmin Nuvi 680 appears to support only the SD, not the mini SD format.

Best Regards,

Navigation map do not show up, next turn etc. Also show message "no map info".


My problem was cured by reformatting the Mini SD card that holds the map data. I had the same problem this week with my Garmin Nuvi 265. After doing an update I received the "No Data Available" message when trying to use my GPS. After trying three days of so-called fixes I remembered that, at least in my case, the map is stored on a Mini SD card. I pulled the card from my Nuvi and popped it into the computer to see what's on there. There are 4 or 5 files associated with the map. I deleted the files and reformated the Mini SD card using the FAT32 setting. I reinistalled the card into my GPS. Prior to connecting the GPS to my PC, I uploaded the latest version of Garmin Express. Once that was loaded I reconnected the GPS and had to re-register the unit. Once that was done the software told me that there was a new update. I ran the update. Lo and behold . . . after about 25 minutes the map was successfully loaded to my Nuvi and it was working as it should.

Need to know how i update the maps card for it


The latest version of Garmin Express provides the ability to install a map update directly to an SD card.
The SD card installation option will only appear when updating a compatible device that does not have sufficient internal memory for the largest allowable map region. When using the SD card installation option, critical files are loaded to the SD card so it must remain in the device after the update to ensure full functionality. For the largest size SD card a device can use, refer to: What is the largest size Secure Digital (SD) card that an automotive device can accept?
The SD card support during the map update will only function with up-to-date software. It may be necessary to update the device's software with Garmin Express prior to updating the maps. These devices do not support the SD card option:
  • Nissan 700
  • nuvi 295
  • nuvi 300 series
  • nuvi 500 series
  • nuvi 600 series
  • nuvi 800 series
  • nuvi 805 series
  • nuvi 5000
  • StreetPilot series
  • zumo 450
  • zumo 550
  • zumo 665
For devices that do not support using the SD card with the map update application, any maps that do not fit in the internal memory can be installed to the SD card manually, using these instructions:

How do i install an sd card in my garmin nuvi 1370T


I have a Nuvi 680. I bought a 4G SD card for more storage. Yesterday Garmin sent me a new map to install and now the Nuvi is telling me there is not enough space. Can't be! Nothing was ever installed onto the SD card since I only put it into the Nuvi today. Help, what am I doing wrong?

How instal maps on sd memori card for garmin nuvi 250


Hello

Insert the memory card into the memory card slot on Garmin Nuvi 250 GPS device. The memory card slot is located on the left side of the device. Push the card in until it clicks. (If you inserted a memory card that already has pre-installed maps and files, there is no further action required. The device will access the new maps based on the address you enter.)


Connect the Garmin GPS to the computer using the USB cable. The mini-USB connector will need to be inserted into the rear of the Nuvi 250; the larger end is inserted into the computer's USB port.


Locate the computer file that you want to download to the Garmin memory card. The Nuvi 250 is capable of reading JPEG formatted images and GPX formatted Waypoints and other mapping-related files. Right-click on it. Select "Copy."


Select the "Computer" folder from the computer's desktop Start menu. Double-click on the "Removable Disk" drive that represents the Garmin Nuvi.


Right-click in an empty space within the drive and select "Paste." The files have now downloaded to the memory card and will be accessible through the Nuvi 250 menu options.


Good Luck, and do rate the solution if got help

Hi, have my gps garmin nuvi 350 i losse my memory card , i buy new one , i wan free sofware download dirction trafic in my new memory card


You have to purchase the external traffic receiver that plugs into your side mini-USB port in order to receive traffic information. This is not possible on a SD card.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 200 and cannot load 2010 update


Install the SD Card. When you select your maps and transfer them to the device, make sure the Nuvi is plugged into the USB. When you are on the screen to "Find Device", select the dropdown menu and you should see the drive letter referencing your SD card. Select that and you should be all set.

My laptop won't show my Nuvi 680 as a mass storage device


I have a couple of ideas based on the information you gave:
1. That Nuvi has an SD card slot.  If your PC has a memory card reader, you could insert an SD card into the machine, copy whatever you want onto that, and then pop the card into the Nuvi.  
2.  While the Nuvi is hooked up to the PC goto the hardware device manager (In XP right click -> My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware tab -> Device manager) and see if anything has an ! or a ? next to it.  If so, that's probably related to your Nuvi and resolving that usually involves reinstalling the driver or updating to the latest driver.
More detailed info on what you're trying to do and the result of the above could get a more specific fix.

Garmin Nuvi 650 660 680 6XX SD Card PNY 4GB SDHC Works


just got my A-Data 8GB card today and proceeded to load it up with 7.2GB of MP3s (nearly full capacity).

I timed with my wrist watch the bootup times and there was no difference in the boot times whether the SD card loaded up with MP3's was inserted in the unit or not. What did change is that even one minute after booting up the songs wouldn't show up in the "MP3 Player" window, it just had a blanked out browse button and a generic icon like it has when no music is loaded.

It took a full 90 seconds or so for the MP3 player to actually become responsive and show my selections, but after that it was working normally (from what I can tell).

Best Regards,
