When it completes (1hr 40min) I get the msg, it didn't transfer. I called Garmin. They are having me repeat the same exact process. The guy on the help line called a guy at the help desk for instructions. Now I'm sitting thru it again, making sure my laptop does not go into power saver or something. However, I have zero confidence it will turn out any different than the first time. 16% complete 1 hr 32 min remaining. It hasn't changed in a while... Argh!!
Sounds like the same problems I was having.

Work around: Turn off unit. Remove SD card. Boot up, install CN. Once done, reboot and ensure it's there. THEN install SD, and add other map sets.

Response I had from Garmin:

Thank you for contacting Garmin International.

With the device in question, it will support up to a 16 GB card. Any card larger than 16 GB will probably not be seen by the device correctly. Please try a smaller card.
I had a 32. Sounds like yours, no?

Hope this helps, as I understand your frustration. All too well.
