Sounds like you have overwritten the card that holds your map data with songs when the card was not intended for it... I'm afraid if you do not have a back up of the maps on CD or your own personal back up on your computer you may have to re-purchase the maps from the GPS manufacturer that made your machine... visit there web site they may have a solution for people who have made your error that is free

No map info on nuvi 205w


Plug your nuvi into your PC. Go to the Garmin.com website and log into your account to see your map information. You can go to your account and see the map downloads and reinstall it from there. Or you can download their software "Garmin Express" on your PC. Run the software while your Garmin is plugged into your PC and it will check for any updates for you.

Everything went dead within 2 hours. The only thing the unit will do is display the following message. - - - - No detailed maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot be used without them. - - - - -

Most likely you got a hot copy of the maps and it worked fine for a few minutes in the new unit. Check the course of the map because they know if they are purchased new or are being copied. Not saying you did anything wrong just saying the SD card can only be used for one unit. Contact the company and they will set you straight.

Hello, when I turn my Invion GPS model: gps-4v506-ius, and then seect the navigation screen, it says "map not found." It's been like that for a couple months now, HELP!!!


Believe it! if it says maps not found putting it away for a few months wont repair it Ypu need to have the maps reinstalled. possible to corrupt maps easily by a spike from car charger or even leaving unit in a hot car or starting the engine while unit connected.

MAPS DISAPPEARED!


Nope it disnt wipe them out, you did possibly when you put songs and things on the same area as the maps usually the root directory.
It is inadvuisable to put music on t6he GPS unless it has an SD card slot that allows for music to be loaded separately. I am sure it dont play music when it navigates anyway, so its a bot of a gimmick and a dangerous practice to use anything but maps on your GPS. get an Ipod or another device for your music. The cars may have also been placed in the wrong folder so check that they are where they should be

Garmin Nuvi 200 Maps Disappeared


Hi,
Hope this helps!

I wanted to add maps to my 250W. I found the maps I wanted on a Torrent. However, many searches around various forums never revealed how to install these. Found the following through reading and experimentation.

1. Downoaded map image file GMAPSUPP.IMG. Download also gave me "Use code XXX when generating unlock code for maps"
2. Downloaded Garmin Unlock Generator 1.3 by JetMouse
3. Looked on my GPS to find the UnitID
4. Entered the UnitID into Garmin Unlock Generator. Ignore the GM XT device unlock code and the top Generate button.
5. Selected Map Product as Custom and entered the code given for the downloaded image file.
6. Hit the bottom create button to generate a 25 digit code.
7. Download Img2Gps and run
8. Click Load Folder to load the image file. Select the tick next to it.
9. Check the Use Unlock Key option and paste the 25 digit code in.
10. Load a blank SD card into your Garmin
11. Connect the Garmin to your PC using a USB cable. You should see two dirves in windows: one is the Garmin and the other is the "Removable Disk" SD card.
12. Create a folder called "Garmin" on the SD card
13. Select Folder/Card in Img2GPS
14. Click "Copy Maps". Select the folder /Garmin on the SD card. You may need to click copy again.
15. Upload will take a while.
16. You should now see a file GMAPSUPP.IMG on the SD card in the /Garmin directory.
17. Create a new text file called GMAPSUPP.UNL in the same directory (make sure it does not have a hidden .txt extension).
18 copy the 25 digit unlock key into this file.
19. Close the file.
20. Disconnect the Garmin.
21. On Startup it should load your original maps and the new ones.

No matches found on garmin 350


Click on the wrench symbol, then the map icon and then "map info". Make sure your map is checked. If it's not, then your map is off. When its off you wont find anything.

What is happening is your map updates are being copied onto your memory card without overwriting the old maps hence you are running out of memory.

In the tomtom home browser you should be able to delete your old map before installing the new one. Make sure you have a back up of the map card before you try this though so you can reinstall if something goes wrong.

Also have you replaced the voice prompts on your tomtom? The voice files take up a lot of memory so if you have put new ones one without removing the old ones you will be wasting memory.

There is one window in TThome that lists eveything installed on yuor card so have a good look at this and see what you can get rid of.
