    Default Nuvi 2595 update to 2018.2 - mapfile storage question

    Yesterday I updated my Nuvi 2595 to City Navigator Europe 2018.2 which is now split into 2 files, North Europe in D6210030A and South Europe in D6210040A. For earlier versions Garmin Express had stored the single big .img file on the SD card as there was insufficient space on the device itself.

    After the update everything works fine BUT I can only find the one .img file on the device in \Garmin\Map and the SDcard is completely empty/unused.
    \Garmin\map contains 5 files: D6210040A (South) .img .unl and .gma, but only D6210030A (North) .unl and .gma, the .img mapfile is nowhere to be found and I've searched everywhere on device and SD card.

    I'm really confused as it is all working (I can zoom into North locations in full detail) but it is as if the update failed as the device is 99.9% full and the .img file is nowhere to be found.
    Does anyone know where the data for the North map (D6210030A) could be stored? I just prefer to be in control and understand what's going on..

    Do you explore folder .System on device? You must make change in PC setting for permission to do it by the way. You can see gmapprom.img and satellites in this case.
    D6210030A (South 2018.10) .unl and .gma are remains from previous installed version only.

    P.S.Garmin Express have the own opinion about the most beloved wife which he calls gmapprom! But at the most case a North map is gmapprom.

    Thanks you, that must be the answer. I had assumed that D6210030A was North but as you say they are old files from a previous update.
    I'll try and get the .System directory to display and look for gmapprom.img in there.
    Thanks again.

    First 4 digits is the part-number of map file. Last three digits is the version of map counted from first release and multiplied of 10. The letter on the end is the revision of file.
