    nüvi 510

    Hello to everyone,
    I am a new user in this forum and I hope I did check in everyplace before doing this new thread.
    So I would like to buy a NUVI 510 in Italy , then I would like to cancel the Italia map (doing a backup before obviously) and install an Australia Map taken from here.

    Does anyone know if it is possible and won't be any conflict then?

    Also I choose to buy this model because I have a scooter in Australia so I can read the nuvi 510 model has the scooter support.

    Also I'm open to any other suggestion, like buy another model or whatever.

    Looking forward your replies.

    Davide

    Hi davide84

    The best way for you to use Your Nuvi 510 would be to keep your exsisting Italy map ( always take a copy to computer before deleting or overwriting) and put the Australian map onto a microSD™ card the Australian map you should get should be an unlocked image, just Make a folder on the card called garmin and copy Australia map image into this folder on card and its done, please follows links I provide first Specs for Nuvi 510 then Australia Map, Have a great trip


    This last link gives you the next model up that is also waterproof and a bigger screen with a few more extras that I think would be a distraction when driving, it do's however speak street names for directions on route


    Hope I helped

    That's all you need to do or if you have space inside the garmin folder on your Nuvi 510 and there is no other map image called gmapsupp just copy the download and extracted image using winrar to that folder and then in the settings of the Nuvi 510 you will see Australian map

    Enjoy

    the Nuvi 5xx is a wonderfull serie. the only nuvi's that are compatible with the Bluechart cards (basic, G2 and G2 vision !) with 3d navigation
    personnaly i recommend a nuvi 550 you can use 4 Gb MicroSd (for full Europe coverage)

    i suggest you load the Australia & New Zealand 2012.30 in the device (gmapprom.img) and Europe 2012.20 on MicroSd gmapsupp.img in garmin folder

    -much cheaper than zumo
    -8 hours interchangeble battery
    -waterproof
    -shockproof
    -use it 365 days a year in car, boat, mototcycle, snowmobile, moto-marine, Quad, bike, geocatching etc

    Garmin Nuvi 510 External Power supply removed

    Hi,

    I have a Nuvi 510 with the latest firmware.
    I connect the Nuvi to an external power supply. If the external power is removed, I get always the message/decision to make that the Nuvi will shut down in 30 sec.
    How can I or what do I have to do to remove this question, so that I don't have to make this decision everytime.
    Thank you.
