You don't provide very much information to work with, so I'll assume your device is new and has NOT been tampered with. If that is the case, then you should burrow into the "Tools > Settings > Map > Map Info" page to see if any detail maps are listed and, if so, whether or not they are enabled. (There should be a little box to the left of the map name and a check in the box. If not, touch the box to make a check mark appear, at which point you've enabled your detail map.)

If your device has been tampered with, you're in a tight spot. Either send it back to Garmin or purchase the full mapset you want installed on the unit -- NOT the map update set -- and follow the instructions for installation.

Good luck!

No map info on nuvi 205w


Plug your nuvi into your PC. Go to the Garmin.com website and log into your account to see your map information. You can go to your account and see the map downloads and reinstall it from there. Or you can download their software "Garmin Express" on your PC. Run the software while your Garmin is plugged into your PC and it will check for any updates for you.

Nuvi 205w won't read upgraded map


You HAVE to go through software support as this is an issue with the map. They told me it is because the map KEY is wrong, it is only for the united states, but the map is ALL of north america. The wait time is incredibly long, I have been waiting for over an hour, such bad service
