I have new garmin Nuvii 5000. Unfortunately, no pre-loaded onto an old version of the map. City Navigator Europe 2010.
I downloaded unlocked image City navigator Europe 2012.3 NT gmapsupp.img and copy to folder Garmin in my sd card. Restart device and nothing. Device does not see the map.
I change the name to gmapprom.img and copy to flash \Garmin\gmapprom.img .Device does not see the map
The full MAP is toooooooo large.
This is from GARMIN Starting with the 2011.30 version of City Navigator Europe NT, the map file size for all of Europe is now larger than 2GB in size. The following is a list of Garmin's older model unit's that support a SD Card larger than 4GB but are not able to use a Map file that is larger than 2GB.
nuvi 300 Series
nuvi 600 Series
StreetPilot c500 Series
OEM Zumo Series
These units will not be able to use the following products:
Full Coverage City Navigator Europe pre-programmed card
Full Coverage City Navigator Europe Download
Full Coverage City Navigator Europe Map Update
A map file larger than 2GB loaded from MapSource or MapInstall
Solution: On this forum, the 2012.3 European map has been split into smaller regions (unlocked IMG files) just to address this problem. Look in the Euopean maps section for download links. You "could" put one part (smaller than 2 gig) in internal memory as gmapprom.img and another part (less than 2 gig) on SD as gmapsupp.img.
