Sat Nav stopped working Today informed that No Maps Found what can I do about this to get it working again--Please !!


If you have a Garmin model with Lifetime Maps or Lifetime Maps & Traffic (LM or LMT) you should go to garmin.com and download & install Garmin Express. Then, connect the GPS to the USB port and tell the program to check the GPS for updates. Otherwise, you may have to buy a mapset if it has somehow been deleted. Call your GPS maker's support before buying anything as maps are not usually returnable.

I have lost all UK & Europe mapping - except for major roads. This was initially built in to unit. Have SD card for Australia & New Zealand - this works fine.


The maps are stored in specific mapset files with *.img extension in the flash memory of the GPS unit. Each mapset file contains one or many maps in it. Beside that, the Garmin GPS navigator can also recognise and load up one additional mapset file from SD card residing in the "Garmin" folder and named as "gmapsupp.img".

Here are the mapset files supported by Garmin Nuvi 255w GPS navigator:
  • gmapbmap.img - the default base map
  • gmapprom.img - the primary mapset
  • gmapprom1.img - the secondary mapset
  • gmapoem.img - the OEM mapset that cannot be unselect by user (if it exist)
  • gmapsupp.img - the supplemental mapset which you can have one in the GPS flash memory and another one in the attached SD card.
Therefore, the Garmin Nuvi 255w GPS supports up to 6 mapset files, including 1 in SD card. Normally new maps installed by the user will be stored in gmapsupp.img.

You will lost all the maps in the previous mapset file if it is overwritten by a new file with same filename. If you want to keep the existing maps, ensure that you store the mapset file with an unused filename (from the 5 filenames above). Alternatively, you can make use of special tools to merge new maps into existing mapset file.

You can view the name of your base map in Tools > Settings > System > About > Basemap.

You can view the name of maps in the other mapset files in Tools > Settings > Map > Map Info. There, you can tell the GPS to load the map by checking on its name, or not to use the map by unchecking it.

In case there are 2 or more non-overlaping maps available for the same location, the map with the highest priority number (defined in the map itself) will be used by the GPS.

Note that certain map which are locked by vendor need a 25 bytes unlock key stored in a *.unl file in the same folder and with the same name as the mapset file where the locked map is stored in.

I installed the Pioneer AVIC-F900BT and it has been


Windows CE is used to operate the Pioneer AVIC F series, which yours falls into. That version of Windows has not been patched or updated with the new day light savings times and since the player uses GPS to get the current time and Windows to make the time change for your zone then your time will not update until the orginal daylight savings time occurs. You can try to change the time to manual in the Pioneer settings, deal with the wrong time for just a lil bit longer until the original Daylight Savings Time takes place, or re-search an update and way to update the players OS which is Windows CE. Hope this helps :)

Downloading mapsets


Every time you download it wipes the entire memory card. You have to select all the maps you want stored on the card each time you add a new map. To keep from selecting all the maps everytime you want to download you can save the file in your mapsource software then just add or delete maps from your original map list.

All the mapsets that are installed in your PC should appear in the menu bar on a dropdown list. If you click on it you should see "bluechart" city navigator" etc, if you installed them correctly.

Choose one of the map sets, such as bluechart, from the dropdown list and all the maps from that set should appear on the screen.

As you select individual maps from the map set they will be loaded onto a maplist wich should appear under a tab on the left side of your computer screen.

Then go back to the menu bar and pick your next mapset, such as city navigator. A new map set will appear on the screen but the maps you selected from the previous set will still be on the map list on the left side of the screen.

I hope this helps. Please reply if you have questions about my response.
