    Default Help with garmin nuvi 205w

    Hi,

    [Login or Register to remove this advertisement]

    I have been given a Garmin Nuvi 205w by a friend who has updated his incar navigation.
    As far as I can make out the 2GB SD card in the Nuvi was put in in about 2008.

    There are two folders on the SD card one says gmapsupp and the other is gmapsupp2 if I try to open either folder I get the message "The disc image file is corrupted.

    Any help from members to get this navigator updated and fully working would be greatly appreciated.

    The only map that I would require is the United Kingdom & Republic of Ireland.

    Many thanks in advance

    The two files are not disc image files ,your PC does not have a program associated with these Garmin map files.
    Why bother,back them up if you want,but you say they are 2008.

    Download the latest 2020.20 rename to gmapsupp if needed and repalce the old file on SD card

    Thank You for your help.
    I loaded Garmin Express onto my computer then followed your instructions regarding downloading 2020.20 and installed that onto the SD card and everytrhing seems fine.
    I will try it out tomorrow , as long as the roads are safe as we have very strong winds and rain forcast for the next couple of days.

    Again
    Many Thanks

    No need to wait for good weather to test maps,as long as they are showing up in "Maps"use simulation mode in Tools/Settings/System

    If you want to add 1 other map to the SD card name it gmapsup1

    Once more my thanks to you for your assistance. I have downloaded the user manual and will have a good close look at it so I will be conversant with the controls of the Navigator.
    In my ignorance regarding the Garmin Navigateo I assume that the speed camera files come already included in the new map or am I incorrect again.

    Safety camera data is updated much quicker than maps,you will find the latest below.Place them in the POI folder or if does not exist create a POI folder
    Path>Garmin/POI</Path>
    <FileExtension>gpi</FileExtension>

    Very kind of you once again. I would honestly never have thought of looking for a file called Cyclops, so you are a life saver.

    Again my thanks to you.
