Deleting Map files from Nuvi 1450

Discussion in 'Garmin' started by Neville MADDEN, Dec 14, 2011.

  1. Good morning,

    While living in the Philippines I loaded an Open Street Map of the
    Philippines (no Garmin maps available). Now that I am back in Australia I
    don't need it and thought I had deleted it but it still keeps coming up in
    the boot-up window and when I go Tools>System>Map>MapInfo it is still
    there.

    The only .img files I can see are the GMAPprom.img (Aust & NZ 2012) and
    gmapsupp.img( US 2012.3) on the memory card.

    Any suggestions

    OSM should be the gmapsupp.img file on the micro-SD card. What
    makes you think it's "US 2012.3"?

    To disable it, Tools / Settings / Map / Info. Then tick the map
    you want displayed, and untick OSM.

    Good morning,

    Thanks for the reply. Checking the files with a Hex Editor(XVI32.exe) [
    too big for a Text Editor]I can see what each file is in the code
    contained in the first few lines of the file. I found the offending
    Philippines one in the hidden folder .System. The US and Australian ones
    are now in their right place eg, Garmin\.system and SD Card \Garmin.

    Going Tools / Settings / Map / Info..... only deletes the reference to
    the map file - not the actual file.
