I have Garmin nuvi 650 model. The intern card is 1.87 GB, so i want to update it with new maps. I downloaded 2011.10 maps but they are almost 2GB. Is there any way with some files to redirect reading the maps from the external SD card?
I have the same issue. I just deleted the states I knew I was not going to be going near (Alaska) and the result was a map that would fit the internal memory. Note: you may also need to delete some of the voice files you are not using to make room for the larger maps. Make sure you back everything up before attempting changes!!
I am very new in the garmin section and i need some hlep.
I have received from my brother as a gift a device gamrin nuvi 650 euro. Due to the change of house of them, they have lost all the papers and driver cd... now the question is how could i refresh the maps on the device? i have in the sd slot an old (but original) hungarian map sd card. i want to put on it a full europe map if it is possible.
Another problem that i have is that when i switch the device on i got a message on the top of the screen that the "GPS is off", what should i do to fix it?
Is there any possibility to upgrade the nagitaion software? It is a bit urgent due to the fact that i will travell in a week to italy, and i need the navi.
How could i copy the new maps to the device? i need a software? where could i download the necessary sofwares? should i unclock it?
could i upgrade the frmware of the device? or could i upgrade the navigation software?
Best reghards and thanks in advance for your help!
take an Unlocked IMG, create a folder "Garmin" in your SD and put the gmapsuppp.img (the map) file inside this folder.
Remember to download a smaller then 2GB map, in nuvi 600 serie Full map can't be read, use the 1.96GB map
