"No Map Data Available" - Garmin Nuvi 350

My GPS displays direction and speed, and sometimes even a main road, but the cursor representing my car isn't actually on the road. If trying to plug in an address I get an error that reads "No Map Data Available". Someone from Garmin told me to go to Settings, Map, and under the "Get Map Info" tab select "city" but the Garmin doesn't let me select the "Get Map Info" tab, so it's still NOT WORKING. Ideas????

This is because your map file has either been deleted or corrupted and needs to be replaced. Please see this link for more info. Too much info to copy & paste here:

    I had the same problem when I switched language. Just go to settings/system/maps, change the settings back and forth and click done, it will restore the maps. (Garmin 1490)

I had replaced the file in the wrong folder inside the Garmin. Make sure the file is EXACTLY where it was before the conversion

NUVI 855 ... rearranging Route ( .gpx ) files with a PC. Then "No Map Data Available" errors. Tried Garmin's site - created an Unlock file - no help. Replaced all system and data files with two different backup copies - no help.

Then ... removed the battery to check S/N. Replaced battery and unit auto restarted. Checked Maps ... OK ! Tried again adding & removing Route files ... same problem. Same Fix !! Seems to work every time.

No Map Data Available

You map may of been turned off. If so. Go into your Tools menu. Then Settings. Then Map. Then Choose Map Info. Make sure that there is a check mark beside the map name. If there is no map listed you should contact Garmin for assistance.

No map dat a available

who need to hook it up to the computer and download the maps back in to the Nuvi. Kinda reprograming if you will. the Garmins usually dont come with the usb cord to conect to the computer but you should be able to buy one. hook it up and download all the maps and you should be good to go. Oh by the way they have lots of cool fetures to download on the Garmin website cool cars and voices, although i prefere for mine not to talk. Good LUck

Garmin 350 road disappears

You are in an area that the map does not support. If this is a new construction or street, highway etc it has not been updated on your map loaded on the device. You can check with Garmins website to see if a map update is available. If not you will have to wait until it is updated and released by Garmin.

Hope this helps

Cannot find my map data anymore

Have you checked the wrench menu, map info, the preinstalled map should have a check mark, if not tap on the check box, it should now show a detailed map screen when you go back to the main menu and select show map.
