What part do you actually get stuck at? do you have the unlock codes and everything else? I think the code might be on your user account at www.mygarmin.com did you purchase the map online or?

Garmin Nuvi 205 can't unlock maps


First, check to make sure the map file is there. The file name is gmapprom.img. It's located in the Garmin directory. It should be 1GB in size. To do this you need to connect the Nuvi to a PC with a USB cable.

Next, please tell me what year of map you have on your unit, 2009, 2010, etc.

Them, email me your units internal serial number. Its a 10 digit number (not the number on the outside). The number starts with a "3" and can be found by pressing the tools button, then system and then "about".

Please email me at sharcnet-usa AT sharc DOT NET

Garmin nuvi 205w CAN'T UNLOCK MAPS don't have codes it is used...


You are out of luck. Garmin will only talk to and assist registered owners. The registered owner has to deregister the device before a new owner register it and update the maps.

Nuvi 205w won't read upgraded map


You HAVE to go through software support as this is an issue with the map. They told me it is because the map KEY is wrong, it is only for the united states, but the map is ALL of north america. The wait time is incredibly long, I have been waiting for over an hour, such bad service
