If you've freed up as much as possible and still not enough room then it's either time to install a micro sd card or decide whether you can live with a smaller subset of the map?You might want to check our sticky on how to make more space for a map update just to check you've cleared out as much as possible.
There are various ways to get the map update onto a sd card.
Well the way I do it as it gives me more control and checks over what's happening is to clone my nuvi onto a sd card and download the maps etc to that. I then check it's all working using Basecamp and Mapsource, then install the card into my nuvi and check it all works there. Once I'm happy with that I transfer the files into the nuvi itself. If you need further detail then it may not be the route for you, although google should help with any further info/methods :wink:
No, you need to do it manually :)
I had the same issue memory is not enough....Firmware maps and something else loaded.....so maybe other stuff is eating the space up as well.Once loaded I found I did not like the changes ata all, and now just living wit hthis newly updated gps...Map looks smaller, otehr junk added/removed....
I think it is the Junction View file that is growing rather rapidly.RE Micro SD cards is there a maximum size limit like there is with SD and SDHC cards ie some devices do not read/write the larger capacity cards.
I dont mind buying a NUVI with only 4GB of memory and having to use a SDcard for the newer maps because they dont fit the internal memory anymore.Altough I think all newer models will come with at least 8gb of memory because the latest maps will not fit 4 GB's especially with the new features like that natural voice thing unless Garmin pulls a rabbit out of the hat and puts 6GB only. :? My concern is the performance impact in the refresh rate of the map display from a SD card especially when I have thousands of POIs in separate files.Its noticeable and annoying.
Still the same, 8GB. I have a different make and class of 16GB card in each of 3 different Nuvi models and they all work fine. I think as long as your using a newer model 16GB will work fine but on the other hand not many folks are going to need that much space. :wink:
You can always manually copy the map files across to your GPS. Let us know if you'd like to do that and one of us will explain how :wink:
Also, from your post it would indicate losing your internet connection is what messed up the map update, not "standalone updater program". MapUpdater appeared to working properly until you "reset the internet connection".

The "the single use updater" is called Garmin's MapUpdater and is still available from:Download which ever is applicable for your environment and you will be able to install the full map update on your 3590.
