Problems Streetpilot C330 and Update NTv9

    hello, my name is Caterina I live in Italy, I bought a Garmin Street
    pilot C330 in march 2006
    I registered the product to my garmin account, my registration code
    was recognized
    The street pilot had preloaded City Navigator Europe NT v8

    one month ago I got a mail announcing an upgrade available to v9
    I purchased it, and it arrived.
    I made the "Unlock" procedure, and regularly installed on my pc
    then I started to download the upgrade on the C330
    it started to transfer..... it lasted 1 hour and 40 minutes...
    when it was nearly finished the message said "error from the
    peripheral"

    now, if I try to do the same procedure again, the message is all the
    time that "the peripheral has no memory"
    and no possible to go on
    moreover... the C330 is now not working, no map data available

    my question is:
    why does it not work? how can I solve the problem?
    why at least I can't go back to the original v8?

    has anybody a solution? has anybody had the same problem?

    That's wierd. I just downloaded City Navigator Europe NT v9 from
    Pirate Bay. Works wonderfully on my PC and Streetpilot c330.

    Strange !
    According to Garmin, there isn't sufficient memory in the c330
    to hold all the information in CN Europe NT v9 ???

    I want to know where he got the unlocker code. The guy who was providing them
    for a small fee has apparently disappeared. While it can be successfully
    installed on the PC, it can't be transferred to the GPS. DAMHIK.

    so what does it mean? that the corruption of maps is a punishment for
    the silly ones who "paid" a regular update?

    When I upgraded to CN NT NA 9 on my 2720 I found that I could not use
    MapSource to load the maps. MapSource will put the maps in the extra
    space on the GPS where you load auxiliary maps.

    I needed to rerun the installation program (install the DVD on the PC)
    and at some point after it installs everything on the PC (again!) it
    offers to load the maps on the GPS. That worked with no difficulty.

    HTH,
    hank
