    help Need installation help for a full map on SD card

    Need to install City Navigator Europe NTU 2018.10 on my 2595LMT
    It's a huge map, internal storage is almost full, How do I install the complete map on the SD card?
    Do I keep the additional files & folders on the SD card as well? No room on internal storage.

    Thanks for your help!

    I am writing from memory, but this is basically what you should do:
    The map file goes in sd:\Garmin\MAP sub-folder. The file name can be 'any_name'.img
    All other files can stay in the device's memory, under .system directory (however on my 1490 I like to store the JCV in sd:\Garmin\JCV folder

    F/w of nuvi 1xxx series and older is designed to work correctly with NT ( not NTU ) maps.
    When using NTU maps you may encounter errors and glitches caused by address search during the routing.
    Such models do not understand additional NTU maps files. Only NT additional files.

    Not sd:\Garmin\MAP sub-folder
    For models 1xxx series and newer :
    SD:\Map folder 'any_name'.img
    or
    device internal memory: \Map folder 'any_name'.img
    or
    SD:\Garmin folder gmapsupp.img and gmapsup1.img ( one "p" in the end )

    All *.db files from SQLite sub-folder must to store only on device internal memory in \.System folder.

    The rest additional files can be written :
    device internal memory:\.System folder
    and
    SD:\Garmin folder in the appropriate sub-folders.

    I stand corrected:
    SD:\Map folder 'any_name'.img
    Thank you, Victor
