Updating nuvi dating for mentally ill web sites
I have noted somewhat of a delay at 50% after almost an hour of steady downloading progress.But I just maintained my patience and the process took off again after a couple of minutes and completed just a few minutes later.Well, my second download using GE and the second time it crashed in the middle of the installation with an error message.Ended up having to shut down GE then restarting it to finish the installation. I have a "C" drive that has a SSD and have all my programs on this drive.After searching the gigantic files I also did did the same for huge and large and saw that the software & voice update I did a few weeks ago for my 3597 were also on my "C Drive" !I saved approximately 7 GB space on my SSD after having cleaned up Garmins files left behind.
If there's no need to do that you can safely delete those files as you're right, they do build up and take up a lot of space especially as files from previous updates also remain.
I used Map Updater on both my 255WT using Alandb cloning method and all went extremely well without a hitch.
I then used Map Updater on my 3597LMTHD using Alandb cloning method and saw that it had downloaded 5 out of the 7 files in the \. I deleted the entire contents on the SD card and fired up Garmin Express and updated to the latest version 126.96.36.199 The map download went well but once it got to 50% the time remaining jumped from several minutes to more than 9 hours !
I do know though that in the past when using Garmin Map Updater the files were never left behind.
Others here have also mentioned Garmin Express acting funny at 50% while others have also noticed in the past updates the files being left behind on the "C" drive.
So for me, the second 50% is much quicker than the first 50%. After the successful update, my Nuvi 2350 informed me it did not have any detailed maps (I could see the maps in PC on the SD card and when connected to Garmin Express, it showed I had the new 2017 map on my device). Note that the card was working fine with a 2016 version map when I ran the update.
