That sounds strange. I wasn't aware that you could remove the basemap. Anyway, if you want to put the unit back to factory specs, as when you received it new, you may want to consider doing a Master Reset. Be aware that you will loose all user input - that means settings which you have entered, waypoints, routes, and tracks. Make sure you have noted your settings and backed up your data before doing the master reset. I don't know if it will restore a basemap or not, but it's for sure, it will restore everything else to "original". Again, I've never hear of loosing the basemap, are you sure it's gone? You might ought to call Garmin about that 1-800-800-1020.................good luck

Update file on garmin corrupted


Same happened to my Garmin Nuvi 760, power failed during upload. Files corrupted. Garmin could not locate it with Sat. Told me to trash it and they would give me $70 towards purchase of a new one, which would not fit in my cars receiver. My solution was to purchase a used one that had a good Garmin File folder. I copied the folder to my pc. It was important to remove the device file from the copied folder. I then formatted my corrupted 760. Then copied the folder from my pc into the formatted 760. Next step was to use Garmin Express to replace the missing device file, do the updates, and reinstall the maps. Product code to unlock maps was inside the rear plastic housing to unlock the maps. Whole process took about 4 hours and it works like new now.

Have you registered and updated your Garmin. There are free software updates available. You will need a usb cable and need to download Garmin Updater.
Always back up your gps before doing any updates. To back up your garmin just copy the entire garmin folder that shows up in my computer after you connect the usb cable.
I will attach a link below.

Updated maps on my garmin nuvi 500 and used it in Belfast the last day. The road I was traveling on was not recognised by the garmin. Why would this be when I updated maps


If it was a new road it may be that it was not yet added to the map. If it was an older road it may have been left out of the map by mistake. You can report map errors to Navteq, who make the maps Garmin use, at http://mapreporter.navteq.com/?app.basemap=jsl
I know that may not be much use to you for now but it will be corrected in a later version of the map.

I cannot update my garmin nuvi...how can i update my garmin map and software immediately


Hello,

To update your garmin nuvi, get it connected to your computer, back up the maps that are on it, then go to the main garmin nuvi's site to check out for latest updates, then update it.

It will be updated immediately, then you can reinstall the maps back on it. And your nuvi would be updated.

Take care

No Map Data Available on Garmin nuvi350


Hi,

I would suggest you reset the unit,if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, I think its out of date and needs to be updated. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Best regards

No basemap n garmin nuvi


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

A message about not finding any maps is an indication that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Error message on screen (read message below)


Did you tried to update your Maps? There are two maps inside your Garmin. Basemap which covers all highways and major roads and mapsource source which cover regular streets. Try reloading mapsource maps.

From the "Where to" menu select the little wrench and then select map and then select Map info. What does it say for Map Info?

If the unit is still under warranty, call Garmin and get a RMA. Return the unit to Garmin.

Garmin nuvi 250 mapsource


Verify that you have the correct basemap for the country that you are in. There are two maps inside a new Garmin. The basemap which shows all the major highways and mapsource which shows all the street. If you don't have the correct basemap try changing 'Navigation' Advoidance to avoid highways and Toll Roads.
