    It seems the e300 (series) kinda like reformats my card without removing the contents. I had about 1.5 GB of maps on my 2GB card.. And now the device says I don't have any maps installed and there is 0.5GB space left on the card.

SOURCE: no maps found on tom tom one new edition

this problem just happened to me. i'd just bought my new tomtom one and tested it on the journey home. all was well and i was really impressed. that was until I got it home and went to update it to get the latest maps for my area. I installed all the software as instructed by the on screen prompts and downloaded the latest updates. i then went to turn the device on, and was greeted by a message stating ''no maps found!''

after almost two hours of complete frustration, i then tried probably the easiest solution anyone could think of:

First of all, connect the device to your computer and close down tom tom home. (making sure it isn't even open in the system tray).

Now, open my computer and find the device. it will be labelled as a storage device (mine was drive G). Open it up and find where the maps are saved to. Something like, UK and Ireland, or something similar relating the place you live. Once located, delete them manually.

Now, reopen tomtom home and go to tools. Click ''use latest map guarantee''. It will then download the maps again and install them onto the device.

Next disconnect using the option 'disconnect device'' from the device menu.

Finally turn on your tom tom if it doesn't automatically, and you should be back in business. This worked for me, after trying numerous way more complicated solutions I found in various forums.

Hope it works for you too!

SOURCE: garmin nuvi says, "no detailed maps found to support routing."

I am very sorry to hear that you are having problems with the unit. You
may need to switch the unit on and press and hold the centre of the
screen until the message ?No detailed maps? message disappears.

If your map detail is missing, then the map information may have been
disabled. To check to see if the mapping has been disabled, follow the
steps below:

From the Where to? and View Map page, touch the Spanner icon, settings
(Tools).
Touch Map.
Touch Map Info.
The unit should display the name of the map that is loaded to the unit.
The box in front of the map name should have a tick in it. If it does
not, touch the box to place a tick in it.

Then please test by searching for an address.

I keep getting a message on my tomtom one saying no map found. i`ve formatted the sd card many times but cant get map up. can you help please?


If your device is saying no maps found, what you need to do is to download new maps on the SD or on your device. That way your device should be able to read maps, or better still, you can reset your tom tom by using a paper clip, to press and hold the reset button.

Or you can hold the power button for about 15 seconds, that way the unit will restart, once it restarts, then you will be able to access your maps and other things on your device.

Hope this information helped you solve your problem.

My garming says no detailed maps found that support routing what can i do to fixed


Press Tools, then press Settings, then press Map, then press Map Info. There should be a tick beside the map name. If not press the map name and a tick will appear. The problem should then be solved.

If that doesn't solve the problem it may be because the map is locked. If so go to www.garmin.com and if the satnav is registered click on My Garmin, then on Maps where you'll find the unlock code. If the satnav is not registered you'll need to connect it to the computer and register it first.

No detailed maps found that support routing


reason being you may not have an SD card inserted with maps otherwise your maps have been deleted. try running the map update on the unit and it should reinstall the maps for you... if the SD card is not missing you may have a faulty SD card or SD card slot.

Tomtom says "No maps found"


It could be the new map is not registered to work with your device.
Every tomtom device has a unique ID wich must be used to register the new map.
If you download the map from tomtom site with your device attached through TomTomHome it must works.

I have an acer e300 and it is saying map not found how can i solve this


If you have loaded Destinator Console onto your PC from the original disc that contains the maps simply attach the SatNav to your PC and take the following steps
1. From "My Computer" identify the SatNav device from those listed in "Items with Removable Storage".
note. if your PC doesn't recognise the device try putting the memory card into a camera that you can connect to your PC.
2. Right hand click the relevant icon, and select "Format" from the drop down menu.
3. From Start Manu, All Programs - select Navigation (this will depend upon how you origianlly loaded Navigation) then select Destinator Console.
4. In the bottom right hand corner of the subsequent window there should be a box named "Target Device" - click "Change"
5. From the pop-up window select the device you have just connected. This device should now appear as the target device and it will show how much available space is on the disk.
6. Finally from the top left hand box named "Standard Maps" select - UK_Ireland-177.0 MB and click on Install/Remove Maps.

While traveling to Nova Scotia last week, my Garmin Street Pilot c530 was telling that i was on an unpaved road, but i was on route 2 in New brunswick Canada


Don't believe everything you see on a GPS. Garmin does not update their maps as they should; I found this even after I purchased their map update. I drove 48 states in a big rig, over many new roads not found or shown on the Garmin maps. My streetpilot usually went into a hiccup mode, recalculating -- recalculating -- recalculating. All the while, it tried to get me to detour on whatever spurious local roads happened to show up along the way.
