    Question did you have issue to update nuvi 2545 with western europe map 2013 for not enough free space?

    Hi

    hope it's the right place

    well before the update of the western europe map 2013.30 i delete all the voices and i get 270mb of free space
    i updated and i get only 57mb of free space
    before i had these files name and size
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    after the update i have these files
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    may i delete 1 of these file to gain more free space?

    the problem is that a friend of mine did not delete the voices file so he tried to update with all voices and 50mb (i'm no sure) but he bought and it came with about 50mb of free space

    he used GarminMapUpdater and after the download , before installing the maps it stopped with a warning no free space

    sadly he doesn't know if the updater gaves hime the possibility to use the sd like [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    well
    does someone had the same problem ? not enough space with 2545 or similar device to update?

    and about the future updates? i have not so many files to delete to obtain free space


    thanks

    cheers

    It is very strange! Usually before uploading map the latest version of GarminMapUpdater (3.1.19 or 3.1.20) report about not enough free space in device and suggest to use a SD-card. What version of GarminMapUpdater you use?

    Take your 4gb SD and create folder GARMIN in it. To this folder copy garmindevice.xml file from your Nuvi. Virtual Nuvi created.
    Connect SD to computer and mydashbord and garminmapupdater will recognize it as your Nuvi.
    But 4gb will be not enough for CNE.

    Another Suggestion.

    Take a Blank USB Thumb Drive (Fat32) >= 8GB
    Copy your Whole Nuvi Drive to the Thumb Drive (including the .system hidden folder)
    Update as Normal
    Now you have all the updated files from Garmin on the USB Drive.
    Garmin will delete the files that you don't need anymore.
    Next Step is to copy back to your Nuvi.

    Advantages of this method.
    You now have an off site Backup of your Nuvi files. (In Case your computer crashes.)
    You can use this Drive with Basecamp instead of always having to plug in your Nuvi.
