Can delete Archive files in Garmin?

Postby Franklkk » Tue May 16, 2017 7:13 pm

Hi all,

I noticed that my Garmin GPS have developed quite a number of files in my GPX - Archive folders. This also taken up big storage space where I am not able to update my map due to no enough storage space.

Can I delete all the files? Some files even dated from 2014.

Hope the kaki here can give me some advice.

Thanks in advance.

Dear Sir,
You may backup the archive folders found in your Garmin GPS to your computer. Then you may safely delete the archive folders from your device.

Thanks for your advice.

Yes, I have transferred the latest archive files to my laptop. Afterwhich I tried to map update from Garmin website. However, when I clicked install the map update. Error msg said that "unlock code error".

I then copy back the archive files to the archive folder. I start the map update process again and it started to update and installed in my garmin GPS.

I believed that the unload code is save in one of the archive file.
