If I understand your question correctly, those should be road/highway labels, ie. E2 is the southern part of NS Highway.

What do you mean by "POST" error?....you mean delete debug or just GarminError inside debug folder? Is it important? will it void my warranty?

POST stands for Power On Self Test but it basically means debugging info to troubleshoot for tech team if there are any problems with your Nuvi to find what is going wrong.

Anyway if I were you, and I really need to delete it, I would delete the whole folder if it is in my SD Card and not the device.
The size of the files it takes up is not significant so you can just leave it there and not worry too much and crack your head about it. Especially if that SD card of yours is for use only with your Garmin.

Hope this helps.
i rikes to uses my favourite maps because mfm is not only my favourite maps but it is also the bestest map for mareyshia, singkaypoh and some say asean

The folders in my 1310 is different compared the screenshot on the first page.

Maybe newer models are different?

Different models have different features / capabilities ....

Sometimes in same model, enhancements are mode to newer releases or fixes made ...

What are these files:

GarminDevice
GarminDevice.tmp

I found these files in Garmin folder and not root folder. I also made another folder "UK" and there are the same files there. Could I delete one set of these files?

Thanks.
