Check to make sure your maps are checked off. Go to settings, Map1.gif, then press Map Info at the bottom of the screen. Make sure City Navigator North America NT v8 has a check mark on it.

Surely, you can remember where you were when you set the pin code, just return there and it will unlock itself.
Garmin use this to deter thieves from unlocking stolen units.

The downloaded map file (ex: "Garmin_RMU_CNNANT2010C.exe") contains all of North America, and you must select the correct subsection (ex: "Lower 49 States+PR") that you purchased, which is listed on your Garmin myMaps page (My.Garmin.com).

I am a GPS newbie as well and selected "all of North America" when installing my free nuvi 205 map update. A mistake that's too easy to make, esp. considering Garmin still has very little info about selecting the correct map subsection listed on their support site.

You do NOT need to re-download the huge map file, thankfully, but you must re-install (30+ min) to choose the correct map subsection.

"Bad on Garmin, IMHO for not making important details like that clear to us new owners." My thoughts exactly.

How do i download maps on my nuvi


If you purchased the onetime or Lifetime map update just run Garmin Express, otherwise you may need to purchase those or plan on replacing the Garmin Device. If something happened to the original maps that were on there and you are too cheap to buy new ones, there is no way to load back on those old map files

Recovery Application
nuvi 40 and nuvi 50 recovery file

Yes, you can enter in a specific address as follows:

Press "Where to"
Press "Address"
Select State
Spell City
