    I have the same problem. I got to my destination. When I got back in my car to return home, the screen displayed the message "no detailed maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot be used without them". I can't seem to go beyond this point.

I too had this problem with the Nuvi 260w. I tried loading the new 2010 map software two times with the same result. Those two times, I walked away from the computer and returned to find the installation window gone.

The third (and successful) time, I stayed at the computer the whole time. I didn't sit and watch the progress bar the whole time, but did other stuff on the computer, and returned to the status window every so often. It completed to 100% and at the end it indicated to click on the Finish button - this notice was not there the previous two times when I left it alone. I then unplugged the Nuvi and all was fine, the new map loaded, and all worked well.

So I'm thinking that the status window probably needs some type of activity on the computer to stay alive. I also noticed that the previous two times, the img file was smaller than the third time, so the installation to the GPS did not complete the first two times.

I hope this helps someone else with the same problem.

No detailed maps found that support routing


Please connect your Nuvi up to a PC and look to see if you have the map file "gmapprom.img" in the Garmin directory. The file should be around 1.5 to 2 GB in size. If the file is missing you will need to replace it. If you have registered your unit with Garmin, you may be able to log into your Garmin account and download the map file again. If you can't, then you will need to send the unit to have the map file restored by a service shop. More info on missing maps can be found here:

WHEN I POWER ON MY NUVI 255W IT SAYS NO DETAILED


sounds like the map folder in the gps software got corrupted. you will have to connect your device to your computer, get on the Garmin website, and let the garmin site update your device. Once updated, it will re-install the correct folders and maps to their proper place. the gps should work as before after that.
