    If your maps are the newstyle ".gmap directory" type it's simple.

    On a windows 7 system your maps are in the "Maps" folder using the following path.
    C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Garmin\Maps

    You can move all the .gmap directories to any location on your system you like.

    Then you create a shortcut for each re-located .gmap directory and place the shortcuts (pointers) in the "Maps" directory where the original .gmap directories were originally loacted and the Garmin tools will find the maps just fine.

    Just use the move function from this great application: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
