Help, I just purchased an SP111 from Macro and I am trying to load a map selection to the data card.
As soon as I select the upload icon the software comes up with a fault message and requests that the message be sent by e-mail to techsupp@garmin .com which I have done.

The map selection is within the capacity of the data card.

The mapsource software then closes down as soon as I select the OK button

The error message reads as follows:-

At: 11/2/2003 12:26:01 AM (UTC)
OS: Windows 2000 Service Pack 2
Processor: Pentium Pro or Pentium II, RAM: 130544 KB
USB_EZUSBDEVICE.CPP-174-4.10
Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

I have tried the unit in the car and it immediately tells me that it can not read the data card, however it does work using the units base map.

My guess is that either I haven’t installed the USB programme drivers correctly or the data card is F#&#@d, do these data cards have a habit of going wrong.

P.S. The data card is inserted the right way round.

Perhaps the best bet is to try someone elses data card.

Any thoughts
 
Stupid question first:
* You have put the card in the USB data card programmer, not in the unit?

A few suggestions:
* Try another USB port.
* If it doesn't work, try downloading and installing the latest USB drivers from the Garmin website.
* As you said, try somebody else's memory card.

Good luck,
Michel
 
If you think that you have not loaded Mapsource properly, remove it and reload. Then make sure that you have the latest upgrade from the Garmin website.

If that still doesn't work, try loading justr one or two tiles via the serial port. Don't try too many - it takes ages!!

AFAIK, the datacards are pretty reliable. You cannot insert them backwards in either the SPIII or the USB card reader.

Good luck

Thanks Gents,

Inserted USB into alternative port with CD Setup in D drive and it reinstalled the data card program driver.

Downloaded all required maps and now works a treat.

Thank you chaps

Only weak point now is me.

Practice, Practise, Practise.

Yip,

5.3 loaded with no problem.

All I've got to do now is learn how to use it.
