Question about Garmin nuvi 205W GPS Receiver
MY GARMIN NUVI 200 WAS WORKING FINE YESTERDAY BUT TODAY IT SAYS NO DETAILED MAPS FOUND THAT SUPPORT ROUTING. CAN YOU HELP ME? I started getting this same message on my Nuvi 205w immediately after I did a software update.
I was having the same problem. NO DETAILED MAPS FOUND SUPPORT ROUTING & SO ON. I called Garmin this morning & I thought I would be on the phone forever with the gentleman. But I was on for less then 10 minutes. The guy asked me to connect my Nuvi to the computer using a usb cable, then asked me to go into my computer & look for the device/drive that my Garmin is using. He then prompted me to open the file that says Garmin & asked me if there was this file that said gmapprom.unl. I told him no & then he sent me the file through an email. I had to open the file & get it into the Garmin file. Then he asked me to disconnect my Nuvi from my computer & it started right up & the problem was gone. If you do have the same problem I am willing to email you the file he sent me if you would like because there is no possble way to get the file from just searching on the computer. Let me know.

I had the same problem. What you do is place your finger in the lower right corner where the green button would be and cut it on. When the prompt comes up, click yes. when the no detailed maps comes up again, hold down the green button again. You should then be able to upload the maps.

The downloaded map file (ex: "Garmin_RMU_CNNANT2010C.exe") contains all of North America, and you must select the correct subsection (ex: "Lower 49 States+PR") that you purchased, which is listed on your Garmin myMaps page (My.Garmin.com).
I am a GPS newbie as well and selected "all of North America" when installing my free nuvi 205 map update. A mistake that's too easy to make, esp. considering Garmin still has very little info about selecting the correct map subsection listed on their support site.
You do NOT need to re-download the huge map file, thankfully, but you must re-install (30+ min) to choose the correct map subsection.
"Bad on Garmin, IMHO for not making important details like that clear to us new owners." My thoughts exactly.

I just got off the phone with tech support. They have a very complicated fix that involves remote accessing into your computer and editing files, etc. They said it would take over an hr, I declined. The problem apparently is that the nuvi 200 can't support canada, but the maps contain canada = problem. and btw, i downloaded "City Navigator Lower 49 States+PR NT 2010.10, Deluxe, Apr 09" and got the same problem. this filename ends in a "B", apparently that's the "fixed one" but acc tech support it's only fixed in the sense that they can waste over an hr w' u fixing it w' u, whereas the older files are unfixable.
I'm just gonna wait til they really fix and upload those files.
Hope that helps.

Just check in with Gramin, have the same problem. They said anyone who downloaded the maps between 4/7 and 4/25 would have to download it again because the problem has been fixed. The file name is the same and you may have to indicate if you
have the lower 49 states that orginally came with your GPS.
