Garmin Express deposits downloads in

The files used by Basecamp to use the maps on your computer are stored in


The latest map for North America is 2017.20 and the Product1 folder is only 2.43GB. I kept the other files in the folder just in case so it is 3.32GB with those in place.

There's a folder for each version of map you choose to keep.

The download folder for 2017.20 was using about 9GB. You do not need the contents in the download folder once you've installed the map on the unit unless you're going to redeploy the map onto a different PC.

I deleted 2016.20 entirely and kept only the installed map for 2017.10. The cleanup freed up 25 GB of space on my HDD.

Make sure you have show hidden folders enabled in 'folder options' (push alt key... select 'tools'... 'folder options')

Make sure you're satisfied with the change. The final step frees up the disk space, but you won't be able to roll back once it is done.

Control panel > system > system protection
'configure', 'turn off system protection'
This frees up the space. Now, turn it back no so that you have the ability to roll back using system restore for future changes.

I know some one will comment that is nothing because 3TB drives are cheap today, however 25GB is a considerable waste space on a SSD system and wasted time and space on every set of backup you make.

Do you appreciate this service?

OpenStreetMap creates and provides free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants them. The project was started because most maps you think of as free actually have severe legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive, or unexpected ways. One of such productive uses of OpenStreetMap data are free maps for Garmin GPS devices as is the case of this website.
