This is a nightmare and i have just solved it
download aprogram called winrar its free on the net
use this to extract the files instead of double clicking the icon downloaded and set it to extract the files to desktop it will ask you where you want to extract files to
now you should have a number of new files on your desk top find the icon called img open it and select CNEUNT2009.11Update_ENU for english
click on repair instaler and follow the wizard when it is complete go back to the original file you downloaded from garmin and double click it will now take you through the original process without the corrupt files
problem solved

When i use garmin express to update the maps for my nuvi 52, i hit the install for maps and it doesn't complete the software update before it errors.


Do a hard reset on the device. Download Garmin Express and install it to your PC. Connect your device to your PC. Garmin Express will identify it and allow you to install all the maps and software that the device has a subscription to. You either have a corrupt file or a space issue. If it is a space issue, insert an SD card 8gb or less and have Garmin Express install the maps and updates to it.

Update file on garmin corrupted


Same happened to my Garmin Nuvi 760, power failed during upload. Files corrupted. Garmin could not locate it with Sat. Told me to trash it and they would give me $70 towards purchase of a new one, which would not fit in my cars receiver. My solution was to purchase a used one that had a good Garmin File folder. I copied the folder to my pc. It was important to remove the device file from the copied folder. I then formatted my corrupted 760. Then copied the folder from my pc into the formatted 760. Next step was to use Garmin Express to replace the missing device file, do the updates, and reinstall the maps. Product code to unlock maps was inside the rear plastic housing to unlock the maps. Whole process took about 4 hours and it works like new now.

I have a nuvi 1455 with life time updates. I tryed to update but recieved the following messae when the maps where trying to be loaded.


You need to connect the 1455 to the PC and remove any unused voice files. Keep only those that you really need. You can also delete the stock picture files on the unit. This will free up memory. You may have to select a smaller map area, like US only or US lower 49 states. A smaller map will be smaller in size.

It will not power on. The name garmin is on the screen with a black background.what could the problem be?


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Corrupted the software


It depends on how the files were corrupted. If the source of the corruption is not physical or magnetic damage to the memory chip where the software is stored, you should be able to reinstall the operating system software and the new maps right from your own PC.

First I would recommend going to the Nuvi 660 page in the Garmin website, look for the link to "downloads and updates", and download the most recent software update. The update is free.

Once you have done that, try reinstalling your maps. You can only load Garmin maps into your Nuvi.

If you are in the US and your memory storage is not damaged, I can update your GPS and install the map for you if you prefer.
