    I lost all of my favorites and the map doesn't seem to be working. Nothing in the city I live in. Just shows some major highways and nothing else.

  • Anonymous Dec 10, 2008

    After using the device (Nuvi 200) for three months, the thing froze and a "no detail map found..." window appeared on the screen. If you press the screen for a while the box will disappear and a map with no streets will show... but: the actual 2008 2009 city navigator map from garmin was lost, so did my favorites and other stuff. The device was never plugged into a computer before then and Garmin technicians say that I had to physically delete the map from my nuvi using a computer, they don't believe the thing just disappeared! i hooked it up to the computer and it's hard-drive shows about 1.7 GB of free space, the MAP WAS GONE! I had to call Garmin customer service and download a new map fro three hours! still this thing doesn't work!

    Turned on my Garmin Nuvi 205W and wont load because no maps

  • Anonymous Mar 27, 2009

    I also had the same thing happen to my Nuvi 250W. I drove all the way to Seattle, WA and it worked great. Keep in mind I have never pluged it to a computer - ever. Upon turning the car back on the gps came on as usual but with limited map detail. I turn the car off and then back on and this time it shows the screen saying no maps found and that it cannot work without them.

    If you lost the detail in your maps, make sure you have the City Navigator box checked. Click on the Wrench, then the Gear and then Map, then map info.

I lost all my maps on my Garmin Street Pilot C330. I contacted Garmin support and went through a number of steps with them including a master reste to no avail. My unot was not being detected on their website and I couldn't register it or access "My maps". All the while I was trying to fix this I was indoors at my desktop where my unit would lose satellite reception. I took my laptop computer and unit outdoors where I got satellite reception. Loaded the Garmin USB drivers and Communicator program on my laptop. Turned on the unit, let it attain satellite reception, plugged it into the computer w/ USB cable and bingo! The unit was detected by the Garmin website. I was then able to register and access My Maps. I downloaded my maps to the unit, which in all took about an hour to complete. Problem solved.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 660 lost Europe maps

Eventually managed to speak to a man at Garmin who confirmed that it was not loading any European maps because it didn't have enough spare memory to load them all. He said that he would email me instructions for freeing up sufficient memory, the email never arrived but I decided to delet all the voice languages that were no use to me and all the other language 'help' files and tried again - it worked.
At no point did I get a 'insufficiant memory' warning, which would have been very helpful, nor is there any guidance for how much memory will be required when embarking on the update. Take note Garmin...

Go to garmin.com/mapupdates and type in the serial number located at the bottom of the gps system. There is a one time cost of $69.99 for the update, which is a bit pricey.

SOURCE: WHERE TO FIND FREE MAP FOR CANADA. GPS GARMIN NUVI

My understanding is there are no free maps and anyone using or offering one is liable for prosecution. The use of unpaid maps is Piracy and not part of this forums brief to supply them or point one in the direction to where pirate software may be offered.

Most times the maps require an activation code which is part of the licence code issued with your GPS and the Map being purchased.

Many companies are now applying security tags to maps that when operated lock the unit so it is dysfuctional and has to be sent to the manufacturer to be unlocked for a fee + the licence for new maps, so beware

SOURCE: need free updates for my garmin nuvi 200

You didn't say how long you've had your device, but if you haven't registered your device at Garmin.com yet, go do that and they will then offer you a free upgrade.

Other than that, I don't think you'll find anything free. The next best thing is to buy the "nüMaps Lifetime™". I felt this was the best deal they have.

My gaRMIN NUVI 200 lost it's maps information. How do I recover the information. thanks


You can try contacting Garmin and seeing if they will allow you to download the map again. The file that you are looking for on the Nuvi's flash drive is "gmapprom.img". It should be within the Garmin directory on your Nuvi (using PC to Nuvi USB cable). The file will be very large, around 1GB. More information on missing maps can be found here:

How do i upgrade my garmin nuvi 200 gps? (never been upgraded


Hello,

Download and install the Garmin commuicator plugin to your computer
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/
This will allow the nuvi to transfer data back and forth to Garmin's server.
Connect your nuvi to your computer and run the Garmin WebUpdater to update the software on the nuvi.
Download and Install WebUpdater.
To update the mapping, you will need to purchase a map update subscription.
https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm?
Once the subscription is activated and registered to the nuvi, follow the download instructions to download the map. This will usually take from 3 to 4 hours or more depending on your internet download speed.
The nuvi 200 is a discontinued model and you may want to consider upgrading to a new GPS as a new nuvi with lifetime mapping can be purchased for about $150.00.

For further assistance you may want to contact Garmin support.

If its a registered unit, you can go to Garmin.com and get it free.

Have accidently wiped mapping from garmin sat nav


I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200.

The error message you are receiving about maps is actually a sign of a firmware corruption problem, which just happens from time to time with electronic devices. Updating the firmware of your nuvi will replace the corrupt firmware.

These are the steps to take to update your Nuvi 200:

Download and then run Garmin 200 WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software. Occasionally a nuvi 200 will also need a Hard Reset (preceded by a favorites backup) to bring it back to 100% operation.


I hope that helps.

I can't get an update on my nuvi gps 200 for maps, even the map of Mexico.


the Nuvi 200 has an extremely small memory, less than 1gb. The US maps for the nuvi 200 only include the lower 48 for that reason. Not sure how large the map file is for Mexico but your only safe option is to contact Garmin direct.

Here is the link for the full Nuvi 200 manual. No, you do not need to send the unit back. You can purchase a map online and download the map to your Nuvi using a USB to mini-USB cable.

Contact Garmins Tech support hot Line they will walk you through the process and if they can't fix it over the phone they will send you a disk that will completely fix the "NO detailed maps found that support routing" I have contacted them with the same problem and the disc was free of charge.
