I use Ubuntu and have a Garmin Nuvi 350. Earlier today I did download my state (ma) and it worked great as it loaded on my sd card. Sadly one file was deleted and now I have just highways. I have gmapsupp.img built from what I selected as file in a folder called garmin on the sd card. I'm not sure what else should be there
On the unit in the garmin folder itself I have some files of a .goutputstream. I think my gmapprom file was deleted somehow. I still have gmapbmap file.
I don't know if a file is out of place or just the wrong name. It is a old unit but if I can get a solution of what goes where I would gratefully appreciate it. Thank your time.
OSM Maps should go to folder GARMIN on the SD card as "gmapsupp.img".
Then in the map-menu you can select / activate / de-activate the OSM map
vs. the Garmin Map.
On my Nuvi 250 I see following original garmin files in folder GARMIN in the
device internal memory:
<DIR> Diag <DIR> gpx <DIR> Help <DIR> Poi <DIR> RemoteSW <DIR> scrn <DIR> Text <DIR> Voice <DIR> Vehicle 1.333.067.776 gmapprom.img 6.762.496 gmapbmap.img 20.403 GarminDevice.xml 4 gmapbmap.sum 4 gmapprom.sum 6.092.548 GUPDATE.GCD 4.150 nuvi_drive.ico

When it loaded it initially I saw the OSM bit on the bottom when it booted. Map info is actually greyed out. I cannot select it. I did have a hard reset before this. I can plug it into the pc and see the files but for some reason it also states that they are read only. I've used another pc to get a tad around it.
Actually I have it working now.:D It might not have all the points but I can still zoom in and out to get the POI's more to scale. It is nice to see GPS material that I can use with Linux. What would be the best software to customize the maps?
