Loading and removing maps from Garmin Nuvi

I went to load some maps to my Garmin 250W. They load OK to the GPS but don't seem to load to the SD Card. Anyone got a suggestion why this is happening?

Also, how to I unload maps that have been loaded to the GPS? i.e have some topo sections on there.

Anyone (Doug T)?

To remove other maps from from the GPS memory just re-upload just the whole of Australia , ie make the map of Australia at 700klm so you can see the lot, highlite the lot as explained in the tutorial , and upload the selected maps, remember you can only upload T4A or the new OzToppo V2 to the SD Card, yes yould put OziExplorer on the SD but it aint gonna work so don't even worry about trying, DO NOT try and upload all the Contours to the GPS, there is not enough room, although you could add the lot to an SD card if the card is not half full of MP3s and photo's. Did you see the post I put up about saving room on a Nuvi memory, ThreadID: 53566

Thanks Doug. I'm going to buy OzTopo as it seems like a very good package. Yes I saw the thread on removing all the foreign voices. Will do a backup then remove them.

When are Garmin going to bring out an Aussie Sheila voice? "Just turn here luv, then we can cut across the back road and we'll be home before the leg of mutton is cooked", or "oy you drongo, I said turn right back there" (oops, already got one of them voices in my car!!)

Another helpful hint, copy the entire contents of the garmin folder in the unit memory to a folder on the PC hard-drive, then if something gets stuffed up you have your own back-up.
