Disk space on C330

 

I updated formware on my older C330 today and after that I removed my custom POIs from it. Now when I try to transfer POIs, I am getting message "There is not enough space on the unit, please decrease the nuber of files to be transferred." I tried by reducing the nuber but no luck.

Is there a way to access C330's hard disk?
I will appreciate your help.

There's no way to access the drive on the c330. It does not, unfortunately, support USB Mass Storage Mode.

The unit has approximately 2MB of space for Custom POIs. This will translate into approximately 15,000 - 20,000 Custom POIs that can be loaded.

2 gb available

Rookie,

Specs for your unit show 2gb of onboard memory available. To see what's left after loading your new maps just treat the GPS as you would any drive or memory stick.

Connect the unit to your computer (via usb cable) then go to 'my computer' (assuming you're using windows) and right click on the drive number for the GPS. Choose "properties" and you'll be shown a pie chart showing used and available memory.

You can also access everything in memory by opening the drive (just as though it were a hard drive). You'll be shown available folders.

Nope. Won't work on that unit.

Have you tried loading the update again?

Then try the poi files again.

MM Is Correct

As always....Your best bet is to reduce the amount of POIs that you wish to install.

Thanks all. I reduced the

Thanks all. I reduced the number of POIs to transfer to fix the problem. Though I did not have many anyways but I think there is nothing I can do.

Not Trying To Be Facetious, But.....

The C330 has a flash memory module. It does not, of course contain a hard disk.

Thanks grush for

Thanks grush for clarification. When I mentioned hard disk, what I meant was internal drive, it does not matter if it is falsh drive or hard disk. Both flash or hard disk does the same job inside.

That's What I Figured

That's very true. There have been a few GPSr's released that have hard drives, but I haven't seen a new one for awhile.

Glad you were able to resolve your problem.

Take care!

hard drive GPS is old news

Actually you will find hard drives on some of the older automotive built-in GPS units. Flash drives were too small at the time (or way to expensive to get gps capacity), they used hard drives, and even these were so small that they broke the country down into regions and included only 2 regions of the buyers choice for the car (idiotic in my opinion). The next generation used an optical drive to hold a disc of the GPS information, and now we have the flash memory based GPSs. I doubt if you'll ever see a hard disk based GPS again unless you are talking about a PC with GPS software or a very specialized unit for a technical application.
