I have a Garmin nuvi 2595. I just tried to install a map

Customer Question

I have a Garmin nuvi 2595. I just tried to install a map update which I did install an update probably about a year ago and it was fine, now Garmin express is saying I need to install an SD card for the storage to be enough for the map update. I have a microSDHC card 4gb which I believe will work, but I have nothing with any directions that tells me how to open the Garmin up to put it in. I need those instructions asap so I can continue with the update. Thank you. It was purchased in January of 2012

Hi Mark,

I see you must have figured out where the slot was, and found that the 4GB card was enough space - at least for now.

But let me tell you that you MAY want to get a larger capacity card for future updates and data storage. I usually recommend at least an 8GB card, which should be large enough for the next couple of years. But these "smaller capacity" cards are becoming harder to find - at least at the local retail level. So as a reference, I have a link to Amazon where is did a search for 8GB microSD cards, where there are lots of good quality cards of that size available.

Also, I wanted to send another link to Garmin's page that mentions the largest capacities and speeds for various units - including the various Nuvi series devices.

http://support.garmin.com/support/searchSupport/case.faces?caseId={18331ce0-4af6-11e3-f27b-000000000000}

By the way, your unit SHOULD be able to handle up to a 32GB microSD (SDHC) and up to Class 10 (speed).

I hope this provides a little bit of more detail about these cards and what your device will most likely need for future updates.

Please let me know if you have any more questions about your device or the update process.

Take Care & Travel Safe, Greg A.

Also feel free to not rate at all, as I know this information came a bit later than you were looking for.
