I have a Garmin Nuvi 250 and I am having trouble with its software. I have rebooted the device and reinstalled the original software. It keeps coming up with 'No detailed maps found that support routing....

Press tools, then press settings, then press map. The map name should be shown with a tick beside it. If it's not ticked press the map name to tick it. Then it should be ok.

The only other reason you should have this problem is if the map is locked. You can unlock it by going to Click on My Garmin, if you've already registered the sat nav. Click on maps and you'll get your unlock code there. If you haven't already registered it you'll need to do so now to get into My Garmin.

Im looking for free map updates for my garmin nuvi 780 . i honestly dont feel i should have to pay for the updates because i just bought the machine and the maps are not up to date

I agree that they are greedy. I missed the cleverly hidden note that the free update is only valid 60 days from your first SAT synch. I emailed to get an exception, but all I got was basically "Sorry, tough luck buddy. But I'd be happy to sell you an update for $70"
