Check the map menu to see if the new map is on the unit. At the main menu, press the tools button then the map icon. Then press the "map info" button. Look to see if the listing shows the new map that you just downloaded or if the original older map is still there. Make sure that the map is enabled by a check mark next to the map listing.

Did you try to perform a map upgrade to 2008? Turn on the Garmin and from the main menu touch the wrench,
then press Map, then look for Map info.

SOURCE: How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx

Have you highlighted the section with the map select tool, then hit the Transfer to GPS button? If you do, what happens then? Does it freeze?

If you are able to send routes and waypoints to the unit, you should be able to send selected unlocked maps as well.

SOURCE: Lost Memory and Map Data

I just spoke with Garmin and they walked me through correcting the problem - very helpful. It is a matter of resetting the unit. Turn unit off, then press a finger tightly against the bottom right hand corner of screen, holding it while turning unit on. When screen comes up, let go of power button but still pressing bottom right hand corner of screen, answer question regarding deleting defaults. It is tricky and may have to be done a couple times. Then you will answer questions regarding time zones, etc. When finished with this, turn unit off and go outside in order for the unit to re-aquire satellites. When all four bars on upper right hand corner turn green, you're back in business - or at least it worked for me. Hopefully this will help, but you may want to call Garmin as they are really helpful and can explain it better than I can. Good luck!

HOW TO INSTALL CN NA 2009NT ON A STREETPILOT C330

The CN NA 2009 NT mapset is too large to be installed in the C330 without putting part of it onto an SD card. My recommendation is to use MapSource to build an image file containing the lower 49 states, PR & the USVI and upload it into the internal memory as a new 'gmapprom.img' file, and then build a new 'gmapsupp.img' file for an SD card containing Alaska & Canada.
Start the process by using MapSource to create a new 'gmapsupp.img' file, choosing the lower 49 states plus PR/USVI. Make sure that the total mapset size is no more than 975MB (930MiB) MAXIMUM. Anything that's very much larger will cause the installation to fail, due to insufficient internal memory. Note: Even though MapSource lists the mapset size in "MB", it actually measures it in "MiB". DO NOT EXCEED 930.0 MAPSET SIZE AS LISTED IN MAPSOURCE! (Can you get away with "just a little bit more"? Yes, you can, but why push it when you can simply put the rest on an SD card? Otherwise, you'll spend 40 minutes uploading it to your C330, only to have it fail at 99%. No fun... )
After selecting these maps tiles, choose 'Transfer > Send to Device...', but do NOT select your C330 as the destination for your new 'gmapsupp.img' file; instead, choose to send it to a blank 1GB (or larger) SD card plugged into one of your USB ports by way of an appropriate adapter (or to the 'C:\Garmin\' folder on your primary hard drive if you're running a specially-modified MapSource executable). MapSource will automatically create a 'Garmin' folder on your SD card and create your new 'gmapsupp.img' file within it.
Once you've successfully accomplished this task, copy the new 'gmapsupp.img' file to your hard drive's 'C:\Garmin\' folder (unless that's where you sent it in the first place, as noted above), then re-name it 'gmapprom.img'.
Next, repeat the process, selecting Alaska plus all Canadian provinces instead. Do NOT select any of the U.S. map tiles you selected the first time around. Capiche? This time, however, after creating the new 'gmapsupp.img' file on your SD card, do NOT copy it to your hard drive and do NOT re-name it. Just plug your SD card into your C330.
Finally, we're almost ready to upload the first file you created -- now called 'gmapprom.img' -- into your C330. First, we have to make sure you have a copy of Garmin's WebUpdater package installed. Open your 'C:\Garmin\' folder. Is there a 'WebUpdater' folder there? Yes? Great! Look inside and you should see a file named 'WebUpdater.exe'. If you've got it, you're almost there.
You don't have WebUpdater installed? Go get it and install it; it's a free download from Garmin. I'm using Windows XP; be sure to get the Windows version that's right for you. (To the best of my knowledge, this procedure does not work on a Mac. Sorry... ) http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
Now that you've got it installed, do the following:
- Right-click on an unoccupied area of your Windows Desktop; when the menu pops up, choose 'New', then 'Text Document'.
- Double-click this document; this will open up a brand new blank document in NotePad (or whichever text editor you've chosen).
- Copy and paste the following line of text into it...

C:\Garmin\WebUpdater\WebUpdater.exe /upload_file rgn=49 path=C:\Garmin\gmapprom.img -autorun usb /i

- Select 'File > Save' then 'File > Exit'.
- Re-name the file to 'C330_Map_Update.BAT'
- With the C330 connected to the PC by USB (your drivers have already been installed previously, yes???), double-click on your new 'C330_Map_Update.BAT' file.
- Sit and watch as the WebUpdater application opens up a command-line window and copies your new 'gmapprom.img' mapset into your C330!
- It will take approximately 35-40 minutes if all goes well.
-Don't forget, you'll need to have previously entered your 25-character unlock code into MapSource. That unlock code must be specific to your C330; just because your Nuvi's unlock code allows you to create mapsets in MapSource doesn't mean that those mapsets will work in your C330!

We have a garmin nuvi 255w. We need to know what is the latest map update. Our gps has "CN North America, NT 2010.30" version on it. Is ther something newer than this.


Maps for most GPS devices are updated several times a year. Your map is from 2010 and should be updated. You can go to the garmin site and pay to download and install upgraded maps or do a google search for map upgrades and you'll find some services offering lifetime upgrades for a few dollars more than the Garmin one time upgrade. I did this and have had no problems updating the maps on my Garmin Nuvi 250.

L am looking for map updates for nextar gps


Unfortunately Nextar GPS systems come with only USA/Canada or UKmaps , maps for other regions are not available, and there are also not much upgrade.
Maps from third party usually do not work on this unit.
The only way to know if a download is available is simply calling them at their toll free numbers, they do not make available online downloads:

Technical Support
1-888-849-0846

Technical Support (For U.K. Only)
0800-047-0126

The good thing is that upgrades and map are both free, while on other models you have to pay for maps.

Give them a call to unlock a download to latest map.


Regards.
