Re: my garmin 330 doesn't show maps

Did this problem occured after trying to install an update?

Try doing a hard reset on the Garmin

First remove the faceplate from the Garmin C330. To accomplish this there is a small indentation under the word Garmin where you can get a finger nail in and pop the faceplate off. On the right side of the unit is a reset button.

I bay n sd card with full europe maps and i put the sd on the garmin 205w but he doesnt work hi dosent show ani maps on the screen

The Nuvi should detect the maps on the SDCARD automatically. A notice appears on the screen to install the maps on your Nuvi. This will take a while to copy the maps from the SDCARD to your unit for installation. After this the maps should be able to function without the SDCARD present.

The Garmin Nuvi needs internal memory for map installation. If there's not much memory left the Map installation might fail. Remaining memory can be checked by connecting the Nuvi to a PC/MAC using an USB cable. It ill appear as an external USB drive. The properties of the USB drive shows remaining memory.

If remaining memory is under 5Gb it might not be enough for MAP install. In this case a master reset to the factory defaults clears memory. This will delete all user data so be sure to store your personal POI's in Mapsource.

A master reset starts by pressing the bottom left corner of the screen for at least 20 seconds while pressing the power button once. A question appears to clear all user data.

Earlier today i updated my garmin 880, and now i can't search for anything. "no map data available" continues to pop up every time i try to enter anything... also only major highways/interstates...

It's most likely that the map is either not selected or locked. You can find the solutions to these problems at

Try starting at paragraph 5 of the above link, selecting maps. If that doesn't solve the problem the map is probably locked so go back to paragraph 2.

Garmin nuvi 1100 gps. Screen says no map data. Is there a default setting?

The map may have become unselected.
Press TOOLS, the spanner symbol on the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
Press SETTINGS or LOCALE on some models
Press MAPS and then at the bottom of the screen press MAP INFO
Your map name should be displayed. THere should be a tick beside it. If there's no tick press the map name and it will tick. The map is now selected and should work ok.

No data available and no maps downloaded

it may just be that the maps are deselected. to correct this go into the tools/settings/map and then at the bottom of the screen in the middle you will see map info tap that and then at the next screen it will show you the maps which are installed if there are any without ticks just tap the box. tap ok and try again if. if there are no map choices then you will need to reinstall the maps on your unit

Maps on SD card not recognized by Garmin C330 GPS

I dont thinki the 330 handles 4Gb SD cards I think 2Gb is the maximum that is why it isd taking so long and runds out of space so cannot properly load the maps.

No map dat a available

who need to hook it up to the computer and download the maps back in to the Nuvi. Kinda reprograming if you will. the Garmins usually dont come with the usb cord to conect to the computer but you should be able to buy one. hook it up and download all the maps and you should be good to go. Oh by the way they have lots of cool fetures to download on the Garmin website cool cars and voices, although i prefere for mine not to talk. Good LUck

Maps don't show after downloading upgrade.

sounds like you might not have the new map set selected

settings -> map -> map info (make sure the NT 2009 map is checked)

Cannot find my map data anymore

Have you checked the wrench menu, map info, the preinstalled map should have a check mark, if not tap on the check box, it should now show a detailed map screen when you go back to the main menu and select show map.

Garmin c330 no map data available

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.

This will show the the current map version installed
