    I had a similar problem.  Garmin had me hold down on the error message that my Nuvi was giving me.  Afterwards, an 'Ok' window popped up.  I hit that, and was able to get into the Garmin settings.  There is a setting associated with 'Map' which I went into.  I saw a button called 'Map Info' that was grayed out.  When I told the tech at Garmin that it was grayed out, he said he would send me an email with further instructions, and if the email didn't work, I was going to have to call their software department.

    The nuvi told me to make the left turn on the next light. However, the road that I saw wasn't the road that the gps told me, so I drove pass that road. And it suddenly told me that I went to the wrong direction( I was suppose to make the left turn on that road). How can I know since the road name wasn't what it said so.

I too had this problem with the Nuvi 260w. I tried loading the new 2010 map software two times with the same result. Those two times, I walked away from the computer while it was installing the new maps the GPS, and returned later to find the installation window gone. So I thought it had completed, but got the same "No Detailed Maps Found" message.

The third (and successful) time, I stayed at the computer the whole time. I didn't sit and watch the progress bar the whole time, but did other stuff on the computer, and returned to the status window every so often. It completed to 100% and at the end it indicated to click on the Finish button - this notice was not there the previous two times when I left it alone. I then unplugged the Nuvi and all was fine, the new map loaded, and all worked well.

So I'm thinking that the status window probably needs some type of activity on the computer to stay alive. I also noticed that the previous two times, the img file was smaller than the third time, so the installation to the GPS did not complete the first two times.

I hope this helps someone else with the same problem.

This is an indication that the map or map unlock key is either missing or corrupted. If you have registered your unit with Garmin, try connecting to your PC and try downloading the map again. More info on missing maps can be found here:

You can download new maps..........free......................but..........

I had this problem last year with my garmin 200 and when I called they said that I was out of the 60 day time window for a free map upgrade but they would give it to me anyway. They gave me detailed instructions on how to download a new map free of charge but they didnt explain which selection replaced what I already had on mine.
As a result, I downloaded the wrong maps and have much less detail. Even though its the "2009" version, its less acurate than my old maps were. But its worth a shot, better than paying for them.
