Garmin Internal Memory Sizes

 

I can't remember all the internal mem sizes. So if your GPS and mem size is not already on the list hit Add New Comment and post yours. I will find the post and add the info to this list. Let's just get a list going for now (for us memory challenged folks) and figure out where/how to store it later. These are some I found in other posts and replies from members to this post. Also, I don't think the GPS suffix matters to mem size but if it does enter away.

EDIT - On 08/03/14 @ 7:23 PM EST, brought the updates back to this top post or added info from another source.

To me, it was very unexpected to see a difference between the 765 and 775 and for between the 3760 and 3790 (although why the Australian version is 1/2 to 1/4 of the US version is especially odd if that's what Aus means)!

thank you, this info

This is a great idea. Since we often have posters who say that they have run out of memory (or are worried that they will run out), I thought the additional data on "used" would give our members some benchmarks against which they could compare their units.

I got the map data by Tools > Settings > Map > MapInfo. The software data by Tools > Settings > System >

So - I have added my 765T data within the QUOTE

I think the post I got this info from said something about GPSs in Australia generaly having less memory because they don't have near as much map for the continent.

Thanks for the adds.

I think that's only the 2nd time I've heard that question? and it was recent, a few days ago.

We can take this list after we get a few more adds and start a new post with it where we add the powered / non-powered mount info to it and anything else Garmin doesn't tell you.

I want to figure some way of formatting it though to make it a little more presentable.

All in due time. I don't want to start anything new right now since I'm gonna be a little busy the next few days.

I can confirm that the Nuvi 660 (not to be confused with the Zumo 660) does have 2GB internal memory. So, you can remove the question mark.

If you will hook your 2360 to your PC and then look at "Properties" for the "drive" your computer assigns to the 2360, you can get that information.

It's just another drive on your computer. Attach the Nuvi to your PC and under My Computer find the Nuvi drive. Right click on the Nuvi drive entry and select Properties. It will show you the amount of space used, amount free and total.

As OP posted, the 3790 has 8GB of storage space.

When in Rome do as the Romans do

How much useable storage space do you get? There is more to it than the 1000/1024 thing.

Formatting the storage device causes loss of available storage space in varying amount depending on the format (eg FAT, FAT32, NTFS). (Manufacturers give the un-formatted size.)

Because of that it would be impossible for storage device manufacturers to tell you accurately how much storage space you will actually have to use for your operating system, pictures, documents, etc.

I think the simplest approach is this:
When buying a storage device, use the numbers given by the manufacturer. You will get the same amount of storage space if you get an 8 GB drive from manufacturer A as you will if you get an 8 GB drive from manufacturer B. In this case you should be more concerned about comparing other specifications such as rpm, access time, etc.

If you are using a storage device and are concerned about how much storage space you have left to add more pictures, documents, map sectors etc. then look at the operating system system’s count of how much you have left.

If you want to know to the last bit how much storage space you get, then you have to learn the nuances of how the device manufacturers state the size and how to calculate the amounts in different reference frames (decimal and binary, and the amounts taken by the various formats.

For the purposes of this thread, I think the appropriate number to be used is the one reported on the Garmin diagnostic screen, which you can see by pressing the battery icon until the screen appears. That way the size will always be measured by the same ruler.

I think bear007 is using that way, else is just rounding up to the nearest whole digit.

Put in FAQ or make sticky?

This is very useful information.

I suggest it become a sticky or put into the FAQ

nüvi 200W -> 1GB, 2GB

nüvi 200W -> 1GB, 2GB

My 200W has 1GB. Another poster here proved his 200W has 2GB. Which means that Garmin streamlined their production process at some point after the date my unit was made, and replaced the original 1GB 200W circuit board with a 250W circuit board. Totally feasible since the only real difference between the 200W and 250W was the map. 200W had the Continental US while the 250W had the US and Canada.

had another difference. The originals used a large SD card, the later ones used the micro SD. That could also explain the difference in memory.

@Alpine1,
3GB is an off number and seems strange to me but then again, this is Garmin. Memory size numbers usually run 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, etc. Can you confirm this on the diagnostic screen.

On the Where To page hold the battery bars for 8-10 seconds and the diasgnostic screen will appear if this the same as many other nuvis. On my diag screen the memory is listed right on the top banner. Yours may be in a different place. Hit exit when done.

Thanks,

It could, but see below for why not.

I brought this up to him, and he confirmed that his unit was identical to mine, except for the amount of memory. The possibility exists that his unit is a Frankenstein, utilizing a 250W's guts with a 200W screen and shell. Such an operation is easily done, just by looking on ebay for damaged GPS receivers. Though given that he was provided with maps of the US only on the device when he bought it, it's more likely a Garmin repair job.

In any event, the last run of 200Ws that Garmin put out utilized the new interface with the + and - buttons on one side rather than at the top left and right. In essence, these 200Ws are rebadged 205Ws put out to provide an option at Christmas, and to clear out excess parts. None of the 2x5W series use a MicroSD, requiring a standard SD Card. My roommate's 255W confirms this.

I believe the new Montana 650t has 3.5GB and the 650 has 3GB.

Looks like we have 2 650s with different mem sizes like the 200s did.

Is there a manufacturer's date or anyway to tell the difference? Is one a refab maybe like some think the later 200 was?

I believe that "pratzert" is referring to the Montana 650.

The one I referenced is a nuvi 650

Looks like we have 2 650s with different mem sizes like the 200s did.

Is there a manufacturer's date or anyway to tell the difference? Is one a refab maybe like some think the later 200 was?

Thanks,

Nuvi 650 and 1350.

I have the Montana 650 at

I have the Montana 650 at 3.5GB lower down the list but he then lists a 650 after it with 3GB.

What's interesting is the Montana 3.5GB memory size is actualy listed by Garmin in the specs. I wonder why Garmin can't list the mem size for the automotive units also instead of just saying internal memory?

Right now since nuvis are the most common on the list they are first. I'll put all others alphabetically after the nuvis. Once we have the info we can do whatever we want with it.

Number are from properties...

The internal memory for my Nuvi 500 is 3 GB.

Can some remind me how to get the nag screen to go away about "install the user data on the sd card" to go away?

I did it once before, but I forgot. That happens when you get old.

@Alpine1,
3GB is an off number and seems strange to me but then again, this is Garmin. Memory size numbers usually run 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, etc. Can you confirm this on the diagnostic screen.

On the Where To page hold the battery bars for 8-10 seconds and the diasgnostic screen will appear if this the same as many other nuvis. On my diag screen the memory is listed right on the top banner. Yours may be in a different place. Hit exit when done.

Thanks,

Under my computer. The "About" screen does not come up pressing an holding the signal strength bars, that give you Sat information. The memory is not in "tools", "settings", "about" either.
