    Have you gone into the map icon and select "map info" and see if the city navigator map is checked (turned on)?

Take a look at what map is on your unit. Press the wrench/tools icon on the main menu, then the map icon, then the map info button. Most likely, you do not have all of the states in the map and probably a limited region like lower 49 states, southwest or lower 49 states, northwest, etc. You will need to download the full US map. However be aware a full map may not fit on your unit and may have to put the map on an external SD card.

Garmin Nuvi 1450LMT, after entering a state, then attempting to "spell City" after entering city, and touching "done" unit indicates, "no matches found". For example, Minnesota, Minneapolis, unit...


Is the map turned on? At the main menu, press the system tools icon and press the map icon. Then press the map info button.

What does it say? Does a map show up and is there a checkmark in the box next to the map description? Also, if the map is for a certain area, say lower 49 states, SW, well you won't be able to find a city in the NE because the map is only showing a limited area. If you have ample memory on the unit or have a 2GB or larger SD card, installing the full US & Canada map is the way to go. Make sure the map installed on the unit covers where you are and where you may be going.

Map upgrade


Check the map menu to see if the new map is on the unit. At the main menu, press the tools button then the map icon. Then press the "map info" button. Look to see if the listing shows the new map that you just downloaded or if the original older map is still there. Make sure that the map is enabled by a check mark next to the map listing.

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.

Try connecting it to your computer via a USB cable. Then log on to Garmin's webiste and download a map update. Then you can put the map update on your GPS to replace the ones you lost. All Garmin customers get one free map update. After than it's about $40-$60 dollars for an update.

I have no Maps when I turn on the Garmin, there is a blue arrow and thats all, no back ground at all


The map may be unselected. To select it;
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon on the right bottom of the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS or LOCALE on models that don't have a SETTINGS icon
  • Press MAPS
  • At the bottom of the screen press MAP INFO
This takes you to a screen that shows whatever maps are on the satnav. If there's not a tick beside the map name the map is unselected. Press on the map name and it will become selected. This should solve your problem.

Don't Want to Buy the Updated Maps (nuvi 200W)


If the PC icon comes up while using the car charger, then there is a problem with your charger or mini-USB port on your Nuvi. Many after market chargers are not wired the same, causing the PC icon to show up on the screen. In this mode, your Nuvi will not charge nor can you use your Nuvi for navigation.

You can use your Nuvi with old maps. No one says you have to update. You'll just get an occasional reminder that your maps are outdated.
