Do you have the map checked (enabled) on the map screen? At the main menu, press the tools icon, then the map icon and then the map info button. You should see the Europe map listed. Make sure it is checked. If it isn't, then the map will be turned off. Once it is enabled you should be able to perform searches for places in Europe

Hi, I have a Nuvi 255 (205 series) gps, three years old. Last week the screen went blank, came back grey with 'crosshairs' and a black dot in the middle indicating 'press here'. I did so and the dot moved...


Graham - what your describing sounds like you somehow managed to erase the street level maps and POIs in your Nuvi.

If you connect the GPS to the computer with your USB cable, you should at the contents of the Nuvi directories and find a file called GMAPPROM.IMG or GMAPSUPP.IMG. These are the street level map files. Generally, these are found in the root directory of the Nuvi - or if yours has / and you use a memory card slot for maps - find it in the /GARMIN directory. GMAPPROM.IMG is the name of the first map set and GMAPSUPP.IMG is the name of the supplementary or second map set (if you purchased & installed one). You will likely have only one of these files - and may be named either. The size of this file depends on the area and age of the map. Current maps of the entire US run over 1 GB in size. If you do not have any maps named GMAPPROM or GMAPSUPP, you will not see any street level maps.

Something happened to delete the maps. Garmin will probably NOT provide free replacement maps for you, unless under warranty. If the devices is trashing maps and other files, you probably want to replace the unit under warranty or not. Garmin will, upon return of your old Nuvi - replace it with a factory refurbished unit with the latest maps installed, for $79. You can take advantage of this service by following this link to Garmin Service.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

If a new map comes out within 60 days of the first time your satnav accesses satellites garmin give it to you free. To get your update you must register your satnav with garmin. To register:
Connect your satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com
Select your country from the drop-down list. Click on "myGarmin" and then on "Register your garmin product" Follow the prompts. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe as you'll need them anytime you want to update maps.
To check if there's an update available log into myGarmin and click on myMaps.
Your map will be shown there and if there's an update available it will be shown beside it. To get the map click on Get Update and follow the prompts.

How can i upgrade my nuvi 205


There are several updates / upgrades for the Gamin nuvi line GPS units. All come directly from the Garmin website at www.garmin.com. All the updates requires a computer with a USB port, USB cable included with the GPS and the GPS itself.

Go to:

http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

This page is the home of the Garmin WebUpdater. Follow the detailed steps to update your nuvi's firmware. It's quick, painless and best of all, free.

The next step is to update (or even change the country) street level maps to the lastest version. There are a couple of options available. A "nuMaps Onetime" purchase of a single map area (ie North America 2011, Europe 2011, etc.) for as little as $70, "nuMaps Lifetime" which for about $120, provides up to four (4) updates per year, for life of the nuvi (which is a pretty good deal!) and finally, depending on a couple of variables such as date of purchase, you might be eligible for a one time free upgrade. All three of these options are explained in detail at:

http://www.garmin.com/updatemaps/

Lastly, if you have any questions related to your nuvi, maps, firmware, or how to obtain or install them, you can telephone (or email if you wish) Garmin Customer Support for free, expert help using the link below:

Please rate this reply if you found it helpful - good luck!

Searching errors


Yes, updating the map will give you more "current" points of interest (POI's) like stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc. Whatever map is on the unit was probably made a year before. So if your map says its 2008, it was made in 2007 and it's already 2010. The 2010 map is already out there and available for purchase.

What is the OS of Garmin Nuvi 205 Sat Nav, will it accept map like Igo 8 or other maps


No, Garmin units are set to proprietary mapping so you have to use Garmin or Garmin-compatible maps.

Garmin NUVI 205 when turned on says can't unlock maps!?!


Whenever Garmin Nuvis have map problems, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

GPS would not turn on


Have you already tried the webupdater or registred the device on garmin.com? There you should get an free mapupdate which could replace your broken maps.
