    Default Map a bit too large

    Hi,

    I have a Garmin Street Pilot that uses a SD card of 1.86 GB. The new map I wanted to install (City Navigator North America NT 2019.30) is 1.99 GB and of course it's too large for the SD card.

    Wondering if there is a way to make the gmapsupp.img file just a little smaller & how please?

    (Previously installed the older CN North America NT 2018.10-Lower 49 States map successfully as it was just the correct size for the 1.86 SD Card.)

    Maybe get a 4GB SD card?

    ^^^ That's the best and easiest suggestion above, just get a larger card. Otherwise if you want to have a smaller NA map which will fit on a 2GB (~1.86 to 1.87 GiB) then get a .gmap folder (aka MapSource version or PC Data or PC Install) to load to your PC. From that you can use MapInstall to make a reduced size *.img file to fit on your present card.

    Thanks both of you I'm a newbie with the Garmin, and it has no inner device, and only accepts an actual size 1.86 GB card that can only hold 1.74 GB's.

    I was ready to try to tackle getting the map's *.img file smaller is size but cropping it down to what would fit but gave up when I so kindly was offered a scaled down City Navigator North America NT 2019.30 the size I needed. Ofcourse I've never used MapSource or MapInstall & was finding both difficult to get a hold of, which is just as well as it probably would have added to my clueless frustration and left me feeling dumber than I already did.
