There was some text on the Garmin website that said “In some instances, your Garmin product might not have sufficient memory remaining for you to load an update to the same map Data originally included with your Garmin product (or purchased separately, as the case may be), in which case you will need to select reduced map Data coverage for your updates.” Unfortunately, when going through the screens to download the maps, I only have one choice – full coverage of Australian and New Zealand!
In a similar thread on the Garmin website, someone seemed to indicate that the software will assist you in freeing up some space – but I didn’t see any prompt like this, maybe it’s for the Windows version only?
Some other posts on the net start delving into removing or moving files off the GPS. One useful thing about the Nuvi is that the files inside it appear as a USB drive. And it found the weird address in Landsdale that my Dad was looking for.
So I could see that it only had 33MB free of 250MB. I first copied ALL the files over to my laptop, and then progressed to deleting off Voice and Text files for languages that my Dad wouldn’t need and deleting off the example images in the JPEG folder. So, if you’re having problems updating maps – check out how much free space there is left in your GPS, take a backup (copy) of everything on there, clear out unnecessary files, and google “gmapprom.img” if you need to move the pre-loaded maps off.
