    On SD card, Nuvi only see map named "gmapsupp.img" and put in "Garmin" folder.
    Map is a single file end with .img , For more than one map you must join them into one.
    Voice must be in Nuvi/Garmin/voice ,voice file end with .vpm

    So not true! Well only part, I've only known map sets to be in img format named gmapsupp like previously stated. I currently run 2 map sets on my Garmin Mobile XT, North America 2010 and Mexico 2010, and I accomplished this by naming the second map set gmapsup2. As for the voice you need to rename to one of the excisting ones in the voice folder. After doing so place in the voice folder overwriting excisting one, voice folder is located in your Garmin folder.

    P.S. Done the same on my wife's nuvi so it works.

    Before doing anything, copy all original files of your device to a safe location.

    well on some garmin units you can put multiple maps by naming them in the order like this.:
    you must set your map name follow these name:
    Gmapbmap.img -->base map. you can put your detailed map here too but some garmin units do not route basemap.
    Gmapsupp.img -->your map. first supplementary map
    Gmapsup2.img -->another map. second supplementary map
    Gmapprom.img -->another map. the built in map name. can be used for any map img but on some units you cant select/deselect in map source.

    hope this helps. this has been tested on mobile XT and nuvi 1460

    Garmin will read into these file and show on screen. tell us if it does not work on your gps unit.

    All your maps may save as "\MiniSD Card\Garmin\".

    I am using a nuvi 265 with the base map set for North America. I tried installing my first supplementary map on my SD card as gmapsupp.img and the second supplementary map on my SD as gmapsup2.img. My results were as follows. In Maps I see the base map and the first supplementary map, the second map does not show up. Any ideas?

    in sd card 265 support just one gmapsupp.img, you can merge them with Gmaptool to one img
