nav v help ?
« on: August 21, 2016, 08:18:32 PM »
hi all, up dated maps on my nav v using garmin express, in my nav was a 8g sd card containing some music, now my nav is reading memory 99% full, i would have thought the new maps would have either gone onto the sd card or over written the existing map already on the nav  :087: I'm a little lost with all this - computors and electronic wizardry make my head spin- anyone help - what can i do ? can i move the maps to the sd card ?  :087: anyone know what there doing -help

mmm, could be number of issues Johnny, it may default to the sd card if that's where you inadvertently directed updates to go, i'm sure ive had this issue before on a car sat nav.
For me, take out the sd card, put the V into reset mode then update the maps as you've done before you put back in the re formatted sd card ( clean, nothing on it )
I assume you want the maps on the V rather than sd card ?
Ive borrowed my mates, friggin brill, dead easy to pick n drop a route which ive always had trouble with on the tomtom with 'tyre' web program, I will without doubt be buying one when I can afford it  :037:

Thinking aloud it'll update all its maps which includes all the countries abroad, that'll take a long time to do for sure.
How come your updating the maps, I used my mates last week and was spot on with all the roads I ride.
Seeing whats happened to you i'll be leaving it unless i'm off abroad.

Have you rode with the just the factory reset maps ?, is it not worth leaving it for now and see how you go ?, I banged 5 routes i'd made into the V memory and its spot on.

Yer fair enough, i'd have done the same too.  :157:
Ive just had a read of the pdf manual, utter shite really, tells one sweet fack orll !!

The 5 routes I put in, run to devils / run to betws y coed / run to matlock and 2 others, all via back roads. Its pretty rare that there will be any new roads built that'll impact on my routes, bleeding horse and cart trotted them I suspect way before I was born !

Great nav though init, wheel play ok but not sure id use it much, the biggie for me is it'll go down the roads I pick which zig zag to the final destination. I've a load of routes on a A TO Z which is a book we use to get from...., i'm not sure if your familiar ??   :008:

I've never had mine play nice when the sd card was in. Always take it out to update. Even load routes into the card directly from the computer, then put the card in the Garmin. Less screwups, for me anyway.

I did the same.
With the new updates its takes you by some bizarre, illogical routes. Had the same with my BMW car.

Jeez, this just makes me more certain not to update the maps. never been a lover of garmin and preferred tomtom however even that does behave as it should.
For plug n play the XR Nav V has been the best for me for a long while.

The internal memory ob NAV 5 is piss poor and new maps do not overwrite the old ones so you end up with loads IIRC
If you plug it in to your pc or mac and do the file explorer thing and get into the units memory you can delete the GPSROM (I think thats what they are called) and then re load the maps which will free up some memory.
You tell me how fast I was going Officer !
