I thought in the past Garmin Express would give you the option to download only certain areas like west, east, etc. I don't recall seeing that option anymore.
Am I missing something?
Still does. I recently went to update my maps and Garmin Express complained that there was not enough room. You are then presented with an option to select your region.
Just as an "off-the-wall" thought. How big is your Garmin Express window? Occasionally, windows can be too small to display all the content, such as a "selection" button. An indicator that the window is too small, is the presence of a scroll bar on the right side of the window.
Options button is at the bottom left! So you need to look for it and click it to see the different map options.
It's much like installing a new program. Always check everything that is offered on the page you are looking at before moving on. If you do not check, you may get things installed you never wanted!
Interesting info, I hadn't even thought to do that. Thanks for the tip Melaqueman!
Food for thought: The last time I tried to update, I did not have enough internal storage. Using a memory chip put into my GPS, the entire file loaded and the amount that would not fit into the GPS's memory was stored on the memory chip. Hope you are able to do the same. The same chip holds all of my POI files also.
When I use GE on my Nuvi 660, it doesn't give me any "option." The only region it shows is East.

MapUpdater used to give me the various regions, but it no longer offers the latest maps so I am forced to use GE.
My nuvi 67lm having storage full. I have been using a microsd from my phone but manually selecting regions would be great.
has been possible for a long time. Sometime it depends where you bought the Garmin.
Friends bought a Garmin somewhere in Tennessee or Arkansas at a Costco.. What they did not realize it only contained the lower 48! They wanted all of N.A i.e Canada and Mexico. So on their way home they took it back.
Your nuvi is one of those where Express cannot install maps to the sd card, to install other regions to your device or to use a sd card see this Garmin FAQ
When I read this topic, I thought I had missed a way to make GE work on my 660. I guess not. I'll just keep doing it the way I had been with Map Install. Thanks.
