Hello, Go to the internet and get the phone number for the manufacturer of your product. Call the product tech support and they will either replace or tell how to fix the unit.

When you say you are clicking on the map, are you just using your mouse pointer to click or have you actually selected the Map Select tool at the top of your Mapsource screen?

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 205 keeps saying no maps available ???

This is easy. You have to run your software, select the maps tap and then transfer maps to the device. Chances are good you uploaded a 2009 map on top of the 2008 map. The updater doesn't delete maps.

Your unl file only has one key, you have two maps loaded. Simple go into the garmin directory and delete the map file and the mapsupp file. You can easily find them because they are greater than 500 mb.

Then run mapinstall (google for the file). This will install your most current map to the Nuvi. You are back in business.

Perhaps your are using a low speed USB port. I once use the low speed USB and does not work. This unit only works in high speed USB. Hope this will help.

I'm not sure if the street pilot is the same as the garmin nuvi. There are details of how to unlock Garmin Nuvi satnav maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing
There's more information there than you'll need but you can skip to the part on unlocking maps. I'd imagine the street pilot wouldn't be a whole lot different from the nuvi as they're both made by garmin.

Hi,

I would suggest you reset the unit,if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, I think its out of date and needs to be updated. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Take care.

Touch screen dos not work on garmin GPS street pilot 7200


Try resetting the unit by using a ball point pen or other sharp thing and press it for more than 10 seconds. It would be on the left/right/back side of your unit.

Also, try to hold your finger on the power key for approximately 15 seconds until you see a message "This operation will erase all waypoints, do you want to continue?"

Tap yes and the unit should reboot then attempt to acquire satellites. You will lose any favorites you have saved but it may save you a trip to the factory.

Please ask for further clarifications.

Please rate this solution as FixYa if found useful.

Thanks

I have a street pilot c550 and it will not boot up. It gets to where it says loading maps then it goes black


I found the resolution on this site. I removed the face of the unit and hit the reset button on the right side of the unit. I put the faceplate back on. I connected the unit to my laptop via USB port. I downloaded the software for the c5550 from the Garmin site. I installed the base software and the upgrades. I left it connected to the laptop for a few hours to fully charge. I then disconnected it from the laptop and hit the red button to turn the unit on. I received a software update message, when that was done, the unit completely booted up.

Garmin Nuvi 350 can't see maps after update


Did you contact Garmin tech support? They are pretty good at it.

Update propblem....


I just got this from the Garmin support guys. You won't believe how easy. From the main menu, click on the wrench, then map info. That should tell you what version of the map your Garmin is using. There's a little box in the upper left corner. If it's not checked, just touch it and the check should appear. Hold down the back button till you are at the main screen. Voi la! He also recommended sitting the Garmin outside and turned on and then not moving it for about 40 minutes. I hope it's that easy for you!

Garmin Street Pilot 7200 will not load maps


I had the same problem on my StreetPilot 7200 after many edits of many routes. Suspect a scratchpad memory heap getting used up or fragmented had to hold the power button in for 15 seconds or until a message that says press yes to clear all data appears then quickly press yes before unit shuts down
This corrected the problem until the next time the heap gets fragmented but loss of all waypoints is the downside
