Navigation map do not show up, next turn etc. Also show message "no map info".


My problem was cured by reformatting the Mini SD card that holds the map data. I had the same problem this week with my Garmin Nuvi 265. After doing an update I received the "No Data Available" message when trying to use my GPS. After trying three days of so-called fixes I remembered that, at least in my case, the map is stored on a Mini SD card. I pulled the card from my Nuvi and popped it into the computer to see what's on there. There are 4 or 5 files associated with the map. I deleted the files and reformated the Mini SD card using the FAT32 setting. I reinistalled the card into my GPS. Prior to connecting the GPS to my PC, I uploaded the latest version of Garmin Express. Once that was loaded I reconnected the GPS and had to re-register the unit. Once that was done the software told me that there was a new update. I ran the update. Lo and behold . . . after about 25 minutes the map was successfully loaded to my Nuvi and it was working as it should.

My gps freezes when on speedo


Okay. I have to explain what happens when you use the speedometer option. While it is off, the GPS use using less cycles per minute to get the location from the satellites and sometime from ground beacons. When in speedo mode, it now needs more processor, memory, graphics speed and the power needed for the receiver. Now the unit is running about twice the cycles per minute to provide an accurate location to judge your speed.
How to work around this.
Best answer: Dont use this option! Its simple and you dont have to burn your noodle worrying about it.
2. If you must use it, then go into your display and map options and turn the map details and quality down. This will free up memory and CPU speed.
3. Turn tracking off. This will free up memory and CPU speed.
4. Use Garmin's mapping program to only load necessary map locations.This will free up memory space.
5. Be sure you are updated to the latest map data and firmware.
6. This can also be caused by the location of the GPS in the vehicle. On the main screen of most Garmin's, you press and hold on the corner near the icon showing the GPS signal. It will go to a more detailed screen of the satellites and signal strength. Stay in one place in an open area like a parking lot. Let the GPS locate itself first. Then relocate it where you can easily see it and you see 40% of signal or more from 4 or more satellites.
Have fun with what I gave you and good luck. VicFixx

My garmin 1300 says no map data available and will not navigate anywhere.


Your map file may be corrupt. You can go to the Garmin website where you registered your unit, and download the same map. If you want to update to a newer map you can do that as well. To ensure that you have the correct map you will have to register your unit if you haven't already done so. Go to the following link:

https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/customers/myGarminHome.faces

You will have to first make sure that your GPS is attached to your computer with the black USB cable that came with your unit. Plug the smaller end into the back of the unit and the larger end into one of your USB ports. The GPS will automatically power on. You will see a graphic on the bottom of your screen that looks like a GPS connected to a computer. A line will appear halfway up the screen which will start as a white line and then change to a green one. Once that is done you can register at the above site. The website will attempt to connect to your GPS so that it can read your model and serial numbers. It will then show you which maps are available for you.

I have recently bought this sat nav and would like to register it as it keeps asking me if i agree when i turnit on


Your Garmin nuvi will continue to show the warning screen after you turn it on even after you register it. It's kind of like the warnings on cigarette packets. You'll get used to it though and it wont bother you after a while.

If you haven't done so yet, go to www.my.garmin.com and register your new gps. You must register it within 60 days of aquiring the first satellite signals in order to be eligible for a free map update. And by the way, you don't have to press 'Agree' each time the warning appears, it will disappear on its own.

Nautilus problems


Hello:

I also have the Nautilus & the processor just isn't as fast as the newer units. You can adjust the track up mode to only refresh when the rotation of the map is over a cert amount, degrees, (resloution angle) if you have it set to a low value it will continually keep the route dead up & constantly refresh.

See section 4.3 Map orientation in the manual.

On the route reversal are you getting the pop up screen that alerts you that the route has been reversed?

I assume you have a manual?

I am actually contemplating selling my unit as I have a Garmin 478 from work & the screen is much easier to read in the bright sunlight. I had my Sitex on my Grady which had a bimini, but my Mako CC does not & the sunlight washes it out.

I'm thinking $375 for the whole unit with a wide area chart of MA.

Cannot find my map data anymore


Have you checked the wrench menu, map info, the preinstalled map should have a check mark, if not tap on the check box, it should now show a detailed map screen when you go back to the main menu and select show map.
