my Nuvi 3700 series is not picking up the maps i installed

#1 Post by osamamustafa28 » Tue Nov 01, 2016 8:31 pm

I installed the malsing image maps on my sd card. For some reason it is not picking up the maps that are on the SD card. How can I get my device to pick up the maps?

Which MSM map did you installed? Can you list the location you installed the map on the SD Card? Lastly, what filename did you use? We need these information to help you.

For Nuvi 3700 series to install maps on SD card, map file name gmapsupp.img must reside in SD card sub folder /garmin

I installed the maps in the map folder directly on the SD Card So now there are three folders Garmin, Map and Voice. The map file is in the map folder Malsing_2016.img few months back it recognized the maps but I recently turned on the gps after a few months and now it only shows the maps which were pre installed on the device.

Can you take out the SD card and test directly to the PC using card reader/adapter. If your pc cannot read your mSD card, most probably your card damaged.
