    Re: Nuvi 1340 map removal

    The new types of Garmin units have 2 folders for maps - one called "System" is for preinstaled maps ( gbasemap.img and gmapprom.img files ) and by default is hidden ( mean you must click on folder options to show hidden and system files ), another one is called Map and containt user maps ( gmapsupp.img files ) ...

    Thanks for above info - I have Nuvi 610 which is simple!
    So which map do I replace please?? (When I remove the image in 'Map' of 8gb and try to replace it with my later 2gb image I get a warning destination not large enough???? There is also a .gma file in the Map folder, should any thing be done with this??)

    Now I have found the 'hidden' folders (Thank you guys) I think I have the right map now.

    Do I have to do anything with the two files with the same name ending in .gma & .sum ????? Thanks!

    The .GMA is an authenticatin file for your existing map
    The .SUM is a checksum file for your existing map
    You probably have a .UNL file of the same name for your existing map
    So... if you're replacing your existing map these files are of no more use.

    Back the GMA up if you plan to back up your old maps.
