    i registered the unit as soon as i got it and immediately started programming in addresses of friends, family, and points of interest. So at some point everything must have been a go. I tried reregistering it and it said that it was already registered under my name on the garmin website. I went ahead and purchased the 09 update and went through the downloading and extracting. After the transfer from computer to navigation device an error alert came up that said"your garmin is not eligible for this update because it had no previous version". i've tried it repeditively to no avail. My unit still says'"can't unlock maps" and"No map Data available when i turn it on or try to use it

    Hi...



    Try reloadin the bkup u might've taken before loadin the 09 update first.

    Once the bkup is reloaded, then re-try loading the 09 update.



    Just FYI... 09 north america update might not fit on c330's internal memory. You may need an extra SD card for the whole update to go in.

On my garmin streetpilot 7200 it says maps are locked...


I'm not sure if the street pilot is the same as the garmin nuvi. There are details of how to unlock Garmin Nuvi satnav maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing
There's more information there than you'll need but you can skip to the part on unlocking maps. I'd imagine the street pilot wouldn't be a whole lot different from the nuvi as they're both made by garmin.

Unable to unlock new maps


Where did you download the Australian maps from? If from Garmin, contact Garmin for the unlock code. Maps have to be unlocked to a specific unit.

If you downloaded the maps from the internet, you will still need to contact Garmin for an unlock code.

Error message


Install the Garmin City Navigator Cd to your pc and then connect ur garmin to ur pc with the USB cable.
You might have to unlock the maps with information provided with ur garmin like ur unit ID and ur unlock code.
Another possiblity is that ur memory card is gotten corrupted so try installing it on a different micro sd card.
Let us know if u have any luck.

Street Pilot C340


The only way to update the maps is to purchase new maps from Garmin and download them via the computer. The 2008 map updates are currently available, and Garmin has told me new maps will be out in a few months.

Can't change location-appears as if still in Kansas despite downloads


You need to go outside and turn on the Garmin until it has acquired a satellite lock (15-20 minutes). Kansas is the default location (Garmin Headquarters). Once you have acquire satellites, the Garmin will remember the last position as the starting position when the power is turned off. You know you have acquire a satellite lock once "Ready to Navigate" appears on the top of the screen.
