Sorry, I don't understand how to do it. Could you explain in a more simplified manner? Thanks.

However, just found out that the large file actually contain maps of other countries preload into my device by my dealer and all of them are now gone. If I copy this file back into the device, will I able to get back these maps?
Yes.

Btw, do a check on the Garmin folder of your device. If you found "SgMyTA.JCV" there, move it into the JCV folder. It's ok to overwrite the older one which is having the same file name.

As that file size is rather big, I can't copy it back to the device. Can I copy it into the SD card instead? Will it still work?

If you are refering to the big file, which is almost 500MB, - gmapsupp.img, then it is ok to copy it into a SD card. Before you do so, create a Garmin folder in the card as the gmapsupp file should reside there. Always remember, only one gmapsupp.img file can be installed in this folder. Any attempt to paste any file of the same name will result in it overwriting the older file. Normally, we would use one SD card for one map.

And "gmapsupp.unl" too. This file works together with "gmapsupp.img". You can move these 2 files into the SD card together.
