2010 Map update is too large

 

Hey all,
I finally received a map update but when I tried to follow the directions and install all of NA it told me the file was too large. I have since whittled it down to my area of of NA (the southeast regions) but the system still shows City Navigator NA NT v8 as well as the new maps I've added. I've checked the user guide, quick reference guide but nothing takes you through an update. Even in the mapsource software there is no instructions on performing a map update. Am I missing something here?

Did Garmin confirm the the c330 is compatible with the 2010? I thought someone had posted that it wasn't.

If it is, then you will have to load part to the device memory and the rest to the SD card.

That brings up an interesting point: I wanted to load Garmin's City Navigator on the netbook we take with us on our motorcycle trips (we have a Zumo 550 for our HD Heritage Softail) but the program doesn't offer me the option of putting it on a different drive than the C drive which is not big enough to hold it all. Is there a way to make it load on the SD card that's plugged into the computer to give me another drive and more space?

c330 small storage`

I have a c340. Seems like I read a couple years ago where the c330 would not hold even the 2009 maps in its entirety. I replaced my 340 for the 765t which I like very much.

Unless you are the lead sled dog, the view never changes. I is retard... every day is Saturday! I still own the StreetPilot c340, and the Garmin Nuvi 765t, but upgraded to the NO "recalculating", 3590 LMT.

Go to the Zumo Forums. www.zumoforums.com

There are several threads detailing installing the maps and MapSource on a netbook and how to specify an alternate installation location.

Not really. I have a nuvi

Not really.

I have a nuvi 200 whose storage space is too small to store all of North America. I had to take what wouldn't fit in the storage space and put it on a SD card. I used a 1GB card, which should allow me to continue updating to new maps for a long time to come.

In order to get this to work, I had to run Mapinstall twice. Since the internal memory and the SD card are different drives, I had to pick and choose where to put the maps. Perhaps the only failing of Mapinstall is that it doesn't automatically send the overflow of map data to the SD card, which would make updating maps even easier.

Most of the US got put on the internal memory. Sadly, there just wasn't enough room for Oregon, California, Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico, so those areas as well as Canada and Mexico, made it onto the SD card. The only drawback I can see is that it takes a bit longer for the nuvi to be in a ready state, but that could also be because of the near 87,000 points of interest on my nuvi.
