    ? update west europe 2014.10 but the garmin software are really rubbish

    Hi

    hope this is the right section , i was doubtful about software & tools , after i decided for garmin discussions

    well i updated west europe 2014.10 on 2 units

    well the gamin software are really rubbish

    first i used GarminMapUpdater_v3.1.20.exe, and webdownload
    with webdownloader i updated the firmware to v8
    and garminmapupdater i updated the map

    with the west europe 2013.40 stored map and jvc files in my 8gb sd and the rest in my unit

    well garminmapupdater did download everything and stored in my unit map and jvc too , and kept in my sd the 2013.40 and jvc files in my sd

    with the second unit i gave a try to garmin express , result the same behavior new map and jvc in the unit , and kept on my sd the prev. map and jvc

    but is the new update (i mean 2014.10) more small (i'm talking about size) then 2013.40?

    thanks
    best regads

    No, it is not!

    2013.41:
    Region Name: Western Europe
    Map Size: 2338048

    2014.10:
    Region Name: Western Europe
    Map Size: 2416640

    It is for gmapprom.img from MapUpdater info.

    maybe the files *.sid are less or more small
    in short i have 150mb free in 4gb in the unit no new files in the sd
    the garmin updaters with the previous map did not find enough space/room in the unit and prompt to store them in sd

    @rosanna
    To force Map update on Sd you need to fill up the Nuvi with some files. (MP3 files are safe inside a folder called MP3).
    Leave some free space maybe +- 200 Mb
    After the update you can always delete the folder.
    Use GarminMapUpdater for now, In the future maybe Express.

    Umh....simply copy/paste the file GarminDevice.xml in folder Garmin in SD (need card reader)....launch MapUpdater and ...enjoy

    That for first upgrade. For second or other upgrades, you need the code map (8 characteres) : this code in your dashboard in mygarmin .

    After you can move files at will

    Bye,bye
