nuvi 2545 update to map 2014.30 Western Europe,help

Hi
i update software,firmware and map with GarminExpressInstaller

it went perfectly i mean the update
but after i set my nuvi in usb mode

i browse my files and

and i found out that i have double files
for example i have old sid file
n:\.System\SID\D3561100A.sid 189.288.498 05/11/2013 10:58 -a--
n:\.System\SID\D3554100A.sid 272.076.127 05/11/2013 10:57 -a--
n:\.System\SID\D3427100A.sid 201.263.524 05/11/2013 10:56 -a--
n:\.System\SID\D3561080A.sid 182.525.508 04/07/2013 10:34 -a--
n:\.System\SID\D3554080A.sid 265.956.694 04/07/2013 10:33 -a--
n:\.System\SID\D3427080A.sid 196.317.478 04/07/2013 10:31 -a--


and what's i can understand i have 2 jvc files

n:\.System\JCV\D3049130A.JCV 338.695.812 05/11/2013 10:55 -a--
n:\.System\JCV\D3049110A.JCV 339.685.476 04/07/2013 10:30 -a--
n:\.System\JCV\D3049040A.sum 4 26/05/2013 09:28 -a--


about the map it stored in the micro sd 8gb
gmapprom.img 2.530.672.640
gmapprom.gma 2.600
gmapprom.unl 25
gmappupdate.gsd 0


now i wonder what jvc my garmin will use?
and the i have 6 sid with different date like the jcv

i used GarminMapUpdater but it did stuck at 80%
at the end i used GarminExpressInstaller but did a mess

i have to say the garmin software really suck! :shock:
what should i do?
delete some files? keep them?
i really wonder which jvc my garmin does it use the old or the new

is there a full list of the all files included in the last update?

thanks
best regaards

    You should be able to delete the files that have the older dates but back them up first just in case.

    The Nuvi will only use the JCV file that corresponds to the map file it is displaying. If your Nuvi is using 2014.30 maps then it will only use the JCV file that is provided with that map update.

    As suggested, backup the files in question and only keep the files with the most current date.

    but is normal that the garmin software doesn't delete them and keep even the old unless files?

    so should i delete the sid files too?

    Not normally but maybe there was confusion between Updater and Express? You can delete the old SID files also.

    No idea of what else you might have on your GPS so can't really advise any further ... if you simply want to delete unnecessary files read the sticky that explains how to make more space for a map update
