How to Delete Maps on the Garmin Nuvi

Updated July 20, 2017

Deleting unnecessary maps from your Garmin Nuvi will free up space for adding new maps. Always make sure that before you delete any map or file you are certain you will not need it in the future. Unless you are certain of the file's purpose, do not delete it. Be sure that the file you are deleting is the map you longer need or want.
