The base map will just give you major highways. You are missing the gmapprom.img file which supplies all city streets. The sum file is not used and is only a checksum file to insure that the basemap was downloaded without errors. The map file, depending on year can be anywhere from 1 to 2GB in size and too large to be sent by email. In addition, you will need an unlock code file to activate the map on your unit. More info can be found here:
Please connect your Nuvi up to a PC and look to see if you have the map file "gmapprom.img" in the Garmin directory. The file should be around 1.5 to 2 GB in size. If the file is missing you will need to replace it. If you have registered your unit with Garmin, you may be able to log into your Garmin account and download the map file again. If you can't, then you will need to send the unit to have the map file restored by a service shop. More info on missing maps can be found here:
you can buy a 1gb sd card but then you have to get matching map data files, if you know someone with the same unit you could try copiying their data but it has to be the same date or you will get an error. the files themselves are too big to email or post online in most sites.
I created a repair DVD with both the firmware update and last map update issued by fine digital before closing in the US and leaving us all high and dry. there is a company called C&C wireless that sells a similar dvd for $109. I sell mine on ebay for $18 plus shipping. will be posting one there this week.
oops, not good. the map data you get has to match the firmware or you will get an error. the only way to be sure is to reload both.
C&C wireless sells an upgrade for $109. I created my own with the last map data fine digital issued before closing in the US, I added a bug fix and created instructions and sell this dvd on ebay for $18 plus shipping.. will be posting some there this week...
its impossible to email or post online due to the size of a couple of the files. I created a new dvd with instructions and automatically loading firmware update and are selling these on ebay for basically the cost of labor and materials, fine digital used to get $150 for an upgrade dvd... if you search ebay for finedrive dvd you should see it.
