Question about Garmin Nuvi 350 Car GPS Receiver

"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.

Bluetooth icon missing

The Nuvi 750 does NOT include bluetooth capability. I don't know what you saw, or what you think you saw, but Garmin's website is very clear on this issue. NO BLUETOOTH WITH THE NUVI 750

Missing bluetooth software

The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
