Can't load Map update on TomTom XL 330S

When I tried to do an update to the current maps I received message 'There is not enough free space on your device. (-15.0 Mb) I then went in, copied the USA_and _Canada folder to my computer, then deleted the contents on the TomTom, which gave me 888 Mb of free space. But i go tthe same error again (this time (-18.9Mb)

HELP!!!

You'll have to remove enough stuff to make room for the new map. I had the same problem which is how I found this site. Turns out, the new map is larger than the one that came on the unit. The 1 GB of available space is pretty much all used when you get the GPS. Just copy all the voices and POIs that you aren't planning on using to your computer in case you change your mind later (you can just download them again for free too). As for the voices, only one works for text-to-speech anyway and that would be Samantha though a male voice is available for download.

You'll need to clear just under 4 MB to make room for the new map, and that's if you haven't added anything. Having the drive/memory on this unit just larger than the map makes it very difficult to get much use out of TomTom's great add-ons.

Your Tom Tom has 1 gig in it. You can remove points of interest to free enough room as well as voice you are not using. This will free enough room.

THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE .DAT FILE CONTAINS MORE DATA that's why it's called tomtom data binary file.
Try to edit some of the poi's and delete the traffic then you can add it again from tt HOME 2.6

Not enough space to update


You'll want to (first) backup your navigation software and map data(base) onto your PC (using HOME or Windows Copy). Then, remove some of the "not used" data from the GPS ... e.g. voices, symbols (e.g. cars), etc. After that, you may wish to do a DeFragmentation on your GPS storage device ... using the usual Windows (defrag) utility ... e.g. from File-Properties-Tools-Defrag.
Then try connecting the GPS (using HOME) to your PC again, and see if there's enough space for updates.

If you have more than one harddrive, make sure that you are installing the program in the harddrive with the 274 GB of free space, and not in the other harddrive that mightnot have that 3083 MBs of free space

Xls 330s tom tom no map


Connect the GPS to the computer. Forget the Tom Tom home for a little while. Use the windows explorer or file manager. Check whether the TomTom is shown as a drive. If yes, Right click on it. Then click properties. Check how much is the used space and how much is the free space. If you see that there is only about 50MB free space, that could be the reason. Tomtom update do not seem to overwrite the map file. Now check the properties of the new map file. It may be approximately around 1.3 GB to 1.5 GB. Since I do not have a Europe map I do not have the correct size. If the new map size is anything bigger than the available space on your GPS drive, then the update will not complete and crash. Solution. Copy the existing map (North American map has a name something like USA_Canada_and_Mexico_P) folder to your computer. Once you have a secure copy, delete this map folder from your GPS drive. You will now see that you have approximately 1.7GB of free space. copy the map folder from your CD to your GPS drive. Once copying is complete, safely remove the GPS from USB port. Restart and try it out on a known route to check efficiency.

Garmin c510 error message "No detailed maps found that support routing. The streetmap cannot be used without them" Don't have pin number! Solution?


You're unit is probably missing the gmapprom.img file (failed update maybe?).

Try contacting Garmin - if you've got registered maps they may send you another copy (although big file - 100+MB)

NUVI 760 2010 MAP UPDATE ERROR CODE 2


The easiest solution is to put an sd card (8gb or less) into the sd slot. Have Garmin Express install to the sd card.

You can also do a hard reset and try to install to the device itself. A hard reset restores the files to factory default, so it may free up enough space.

Hello parteeboy24,

The on board memory in your Nuvi 200 may not have enough free space to hold the map. You may be able to free up some space by deleting maps or language packs that you don't use. (Be careful to back up any files you are going to delete.) Or you can add an optional SD memory card to the unit to increase the storage capacity on the GPS.

Best Regards,
Ken
