    Why don't you move a map of sufficient size from the device memory to the SD card. You can then download from Express to your device.

    Give this a try:

    Copy the file GarminDevice.xml from your unit to a blank sd card.
    Connect this sd card with a separate cardreader to the PC.
    Open Garmin Express and see if you can download the content you need.

    SD card formatted to FAT 32 and GarminDevice.xml in Garmin directory. The full path is: x:/Garmin/GarminDevice.xml
    And yes - you can move JCV and SID directory to SD card.
    Correct paths are: x:/Garmin/JCV and x:/.System/SID
    The maps correct path for new units on SD card is: x:/Map

    Follow your instruction, all works well. Thanks @isg

    How could i reset Garmin express at "up to date"? As it keep asking "update new map available" whenever i connect my Garmin to. Thanks

    GarminExpress should offer to put maps on a mircoSD for your 3597 but that will likely only happen provided you do not insert the card until prompted to do so by GE.

    If you still have problems even doing the above, replace the XML file you're using with the one generated by the device AFTER you've updated maps.
