Connect your memory card reader to your computer via USB. These devices are all plug and play, so you need to connect it to make it work.

Slot the Garmin maps SD card into the card reader, wait a few moments for your computer to recognise that a new medium has been inserted.

Click "Start" and "Computer." Double-click the Garmin drive.

Press "Ctrl" and "A" to select all the files. Press "Ctrl" and "C" to copy the maps. Navigate on your computer to where you want to copy them and press "Ctrl" and "V."
