My garmin is not showing anything but waterways and unpaved roads.


Make sure that the unit isn't set to "Off Road" in the navigation settings. "Off Road" is for hiking. Also make sure that you have a valid city navigator map that contains streets and that it is selected (check marked) on the map info screen. Otherwise you may just be using the base map which only contains major highways

Garmin Nuvi 1300 Preloaded maps not available on device


There's 2 possible reasons for this;
1. The map is unselected or
2. The map is locked.

To select the map;
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon on the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS or LOCALE depending on which is on your satnav.
  • Press MAPS and then at the bottom of the screen press MAP INFO
The name of your map should be shown with a tick at the side of it. If it's not ticked press the map name and it will appear. The map is then selected.

If the map is locked you can find details of how to unlock it at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing
There's more information there than you need so you can skip to paragraph 2.

Earlier today i updated my garmin 880, and now i can't search for anything. "no map data available" continues to pop up every time i try to enter anything... also only major highways/interstates...


It's most likely that the map is either not selected or locked. You can find the solutions to these problems at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

Try starting at paragraph 5 of the above link, selecting maps. If that doesn't solve the problem the map is probably locked so go back to paragraph 2.

Hi, i got a problem with my tomtom one XL , when i choose the depart and destination id i can't see the roads..the pages of roods its blue


you have to select a map of your region, sounds like you have a map of somewhere else selected , which is why it is showing no roads, as it cant lock on to any as the map is the wrong one. click on the screen then click on prefrences and click on maps then switch map and choose the map for your region

Garmin Nuvi 205 can't unlock maps


First, check to make sure the map file is there. The file name is gmapprom.img. It's located in the Garmin directory. It should be 1GB in size. To do this you need to connect the Nuvi to a PC with a USB cable.

Next, please tell me what year of map you have on your unit, 2009, 2010, etc.

Them, email me your units internal serial number. Its a 10 digit number (not the number on the outside). The number starts with a "3" and can be found by pressing the tools button, then system and then "about".

Please email me at sharcnet-usa AT sharc DOT NET

I have a Garmin Nuvi 260 and I just purchased a City Navigator Europe N/T data card. I inserted the card and didn't see anything that showed it was added. Do I need to be in Europe for it to work or do I...


As long as you can see the software on the list of Maps, you'll be fine. It wont show any maps right now because there are no European maps for your present location, you need to be in Europe for the maps to show on the screen.

Magellan 3200 freeze


there is a little square at the top right corner of the screen. when you first turn it on, press that square to see the satelites it has locked on to, once a few of those turn green (meaning you are locked on by sattelites) see if the map starts workign again. Mine did the same thing and i thought is was broken, but depending on where you are, it can take up to 10 minutes for the map to start working (as it need that astelites to tell it where it is and what is around it) get it? so just try waiting before you put in a destination.

Unlocking IQue 3600 maps


Even with the maps unlocked it they can appear to be locked.
There are little known flags to diable/enable the base/detailed maps.
Check that the boxes are checked under the <Map><Options><Misc>
You can select either base or detailed maps there.
Disable both and it looks like the unit doesn't have any maps.

Won't stay on


Have you installed anything lately? Do you have any sd card installed? Usually this is the cause for it to crash. There is a reset on the bottom of the nuvi, when it locks up blank, press the reset button and see what happens...

Map problem


There are two type of maps in the unit. There is the basemap which shows the states and major highway and roads and then there is the actual Mapsource maps which shows the streets. If you go to Mapinfo and it doesn't show anything, then Mapsource maps are missing.

With the 2610 you can use a card reader for the Compact Flash Memory card to load the maps. This is much faster since the card reader is USB 2.0 while the Garmin USB is 1.1 Under device look for the drive letter which correspond to the Campact Flash card.
