    Default Map removal from 1490T

    Hi,

    I have a nuvi 1490T with the europe 2011.20 map preinstalled. This map takes a lot of space in the nuvi memory (I have 460mb free). I wanted to load a different map but there was not enough space. I noticed then that I could not find the map anywhere in the folders of the nuvi. It must have been installed in a secret directory which I can't find.

    I could use a card but 1. I don't have a card of that size and 2. I would like to see where the map is. Is there a tool to handle such cases?

    Thumbs up RE: Enable Windows to show hidden files and folders ...

    You need to enable "Show hidden files, folders and drives" in Windows Explorer and look for the ".System" directory.
    Files and directories that begins with a dot are hidden in UNIX and Linux that uses this dot-prefix standard.

    Thanks for the reply. Lame of me I should have thought of that. I would like to ask about the .gma file inside the map folder. Iread that it is a new kind of garmin map validation method. But since removing it doesn't make any difference what is the point of having it anyway?
