Garmin C510 wont install download Europe maps to Unit

Hi, I bought the download of Europe maps to install to my Garmin C510 and a 2GB SD card. When I go to install the maps it always tells me there is not enough space on my unit, and there is no option to install the maps to the SD card. Could someone let me know how I install the maps to the SD card on a Mac?

Also the SD card shows up as a seperate drive to my garmin unit on my desk top. Do i need to format the card in some way for the maps to upload to the card?

Thanks

Alex.

    Thanks, I guess I have to delete maps and add them as I need them then.

    I will try this to see if it works. On a side note, Garmin have never bothered replying to 2 emails from me regarding this issue...

Take a look at the Garmin support page - there is a Question " Why do I get a not enough space message on my Nuvi2xx when trying to update my mapping?"
It tells you how to remove the unused voice files to free up space.
I have a Nuvi 255WT and deleting the voice files alone was not enough, so I set about removing a lot of other stuff *** NOTE THAT IF YOU FOLLOW WHAT I DID, DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK **** it worked for me but there is always the risk of deleting a file that the device needs.
Also I was stupid and didn't try and save the files to a directory on my MAC before deleting them, from the satnav - worth a try so that if you can do that you have a chance of recovering one that you delete if you want it back.
First I also removed the un-needed text files - leaving only the 3 British-English files
Then I removed all of the POI files that were clearly examples/samples
Then I removed all of the Vehicle files except the one I was using
Then I removed all of the large ExtData files - now that was the one that caused me the most worry as I wasn't certain what they were there for!
This gave me a bit over 140Mbyte of free space which was enough to install the 2010 update for all of Europe.
Now I don't know whether the C510 has the same amount/less/more memory than the 255WT - so this may or may not work for you.
I didn't have an SD card available, which is why I went this far. I am going to get one and see if I can find out how to load the maps onto that.
cheers - Jeremy

It installs on the device always. You have too much information on the Device. You are not going to be able to install them without deleting some stuff.

Your unit came with UK mapping but the update mapping is slightly larger than the previous versions as it has more detail.
To get around the issue you are experiencing you need to install any region offered onto your GPS device. Once you have done this go to my computer and then go to the Garmin drive followed by the Garmin folder.Once you have opened the Garmin folder you need to delete a file called GMAPPROM.IMG. Once you have done this you will be able to get UK onto the device by using the "MapInstall"
program.To get to the "Map Install" program you go to "Start", "All Programs", "Garmin" then "MapInstall". The whole of Europe will fit on a 2Mb card again using the "MapInstall" program to transfer the information to the card.

I bought the europe sd card. If I insert it will I lose all the US data?


No, the US data is on the unit itself. Adding an SD card with maps only increases the number of maps your unit can handle, it doesn't replace existing maps. You'll have to go into settings to change the view to European maps.

Can we download European maps onto our Garmin 200W for travelling with motorhome


If you bought the satnav in the USA it won't work in Europe. If you bought it in Europe you can download the maps but the full map of Europe won't fit on it. You can fit Western Europe or add and remove countries as you need them. It's probably not a satisfactory solution when traveling with a motor home. You can put the map on an SD card but the nuvi 200W has problems reading maps from SD cards of 2 Gb or more. The map of Europe would take a 4 Gb card to hold it all.

You would probably be better to buy a cheap satnav of Europe. You can get them from http://www.pixmania.ie/ie/uk/xx/617/xx/1914/23/criteresn.html?sSortInfo=Prix-ASC
if you want to buy on line or Halfords shops if you prefer to deal with someone face to face. Some of them cost less than €100 and would be near the same price as buying the map of Europe.

Or if you want a satnav that covers both the USA and Europe and will work in both the Garmin nuvi 1370 or the 2370 would do the job but costs a bit more.

I hope this answers your question.

My nuvi 3760T does not have enough space to load europe map. Can I remove preloaded north america map and reload at a later date without losing it?


If you have the map downloaded from the garmin website to your computer you could remove it and replace it later. However a better option might be to download the map of Europe to your computer and install it to a micro SD card. A 4 Gb card would hold the map of Europe and you don't risk losing your North America map. You can get details of how to set up the map on your micro SD card at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
While this link is mainly about how to update your maps it has a section on setting up maps on an SD/Micro SD card also.

I would like to know if I can donload maps for europe and where i can get them


Go to www.garmin.com If you haven't registered your sat nav you'll have to do that first and connect the satnav to your computer. You'll have to buy the map I'm afraid as there are no free maps for garmin satnavs. The full map of Europe is around 4 Gigabytes and will not all fit on your satnav even if you replace your home map so I would suggest just buying a map of the area of europe you want e.g. western europe and install it on an SD card. You'll have to install some of the map onto the satnav before you can install the rest of it onto the SD card i.e. select one country, so be sure you have some free space on the satnav. It takes about 3 hours to install not to mention the time to download so maybe it'd be easier to just buy a satnav with a map of europe on it.

My Garmin gps is frozen on a screen telling me there are no maps found. I tried to reset it and put a memory card in it but nothing worked so far. Any ideas?


You're missing the file gmapprom.img on your C510 unit (possibly a failed update?).

Unless you have a backup it's contact Garmin I expect (maybe try getting a copy off someone but possible the file is locked to the unit as I have tried swapping SD cards containing maps in the past between units and no joy)..

I would like to install a north america maps to my Garmin bought in italy withy europe maps


You would install the maps on an SD card, or microSD card, and then inside the setup of the GPS unit, you would choose which maps you want the unit to display.

New Maps - Can't update unit


The new maps will be unlocked to your GPS using the code Garmin supplied you.

You will have to add these maps to a second SD card if your present card is full, or else purchase a larger card. Since all the Mapsource NT 2008 Europe maps are 1,395MB in size, you'll need to purchase at least a 2GB SD card.
