SOURCE: unable to unlock maps for

Here's a thought: instead of trying to install pirated maps which don't/won't work on your unit, how about actually buying the maps which are guaranteed to work. You will get a free copy of Mapsource on the disk with the maps of Europe.

SOURCE: unocking Garmin SD maps

it is in the box it came with, on the back of the instruction book.
If you did not buy it 'new in the box', you will have to refer to the 'activation' code sent to you email.
The Garmin Nuvi 760 does not require SD card maps if you are using it in the US, btw...

Guys and or ladies... I know that you have to create a folder named "GARMIN" in the sd card so the maps can be recognize. Maybe this solves your problem. Let me know if it works.

SOURCE: New Garmin nuvi 255w suddenly not working

Those are severe symptoms.
A Hard Reset is a good idea after a firmware upgrade.

There are three levels of getting your Garmin 255W's attention and correcting bad habits (ie: not loading maps or locking up).

The first is 'soft reset'. There is a reset button along the bottom of your gps. Push and hold it until it restarts. If you cannot locate your reset button, sliding the power switch to OFF and holding for 8 seconds should do the same thing.

The second method is a 'hard reset' or 'clear all user data', to restore factory defaults.

The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

The third method is a firmware upgrade via Garmin's Webupdater, or the myGarmin site.

Run through these fixes to get your Nuvi running as good as new.
I hope that helps.

When trying to put in an address the Garmin asks me for a country and then does not accept it after typing in the first letter. The other functions appear to be ok.


Hello

you need to update your map

Purchase your map updates (if necessary). You can purchase map updates for your Garmin Nuvi from the Garmin website. There are two basic options: a lifetime purchase or a one-time upgrade. The lifetime purchase gives you access to any new updates for the life of your device, while the one-time upgrade will provide you with the latest current maps, but you'll need to purchase again if you want to upgrade again later.

Make sure to log in with your myGarmin account before purchasing the map upgrade.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi to your computer via USB cable.

Open the "myGarmin" website and sign in with your Garmin account. Make sure to sign in with the account that you've purchased the map updates on.

Click the "myMaps" tab on the myGamrin dashboard. This will load a list of all of your purchased map upgrades.

Click the drop-down menu in the "Recent Map Purchases" section. Select your Garmin Nuvi from the list of devices.

Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin when prompted. This is required in order for the Garmin website to transfer the map files to your Gamrin software on your computer.

Download and install Garmin Express. This is the program that allows your computer to interact with your Garmin Nuvi.

Register your device in Garmin Express. If you haven't already registered your device, you'll be prompted to when you start Garmin Express. You'll need to register in order to update the maps.

Click the "Updates" tab in Garmin Express. This will show all of the available updates for your Nuvi, including the new map update you just purchased.

Click the "Show Details" option next to your Map Update. Click the "Install" button that appears. You will need to accept the agreement before the update installs.

Wait for the maps to download and install. Once you agree to the terms, the map update will begin downloading to Garmin Express, and will then be transferred to your Nuvi. This will likely take several minutes to complete.

unplug the Nuvi when the update is complete. The Nuvi will reboot and begin installing the updated software on the device. This may take another couple of minutes.

You can download garmin express here

MY MAPS HAVE GONE FROM MY SATNAV HOW DO I DOWNLOAD NEW ONES


The maps may just be unselected rather than gone. To select them press the spanner icon (Tools) then press Maps. At the bottom of the screen press Map Info and see if there's a map there. There should be a tick at the side of the map name. If there's not press the map name and the tick should appear. The map will then be selected and should be ok.
If you need to get a new map or map update connect your satnav to your computer. Go to www.garmin.com. If you have already registered your satnav click on myGarmin and then on myMaps. (Details on how to register are below) Your map should be shown there and if there's an update available click on GET UPDATE to download the updated map. If there's no update and you need to buy a new one click on Shop For More Maps and select the ones you want. Follow the prompts.

TO REGISTER YOUR SATNAV
Go to www.garmin.com and select your country. Click on myGarmin and then on Register Your Garmin Product. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe as you'll need them anytime you want to update your maps.

What will i need to down load maps


To download a map you need to connect your satnav to a computer with the usb cable. Go to www.garmin.com If you haven't already registered your satnav with garmin you'll need to do so. You'll have to create a username and password to register. Write them down and keep them safe as you'll need them again if you need to update the map or buy new maps again.
If you don't have webupdater installed you'll need it. It can be downloaded from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 When you've registered click on My Garmin, then on MyMaps. If there is an update for the map on your satnav it will be shown there. Click get update. You'll need a credit card to pay for it. Map sizes can be very big e.g. europe is around 4 Gb so you'll need a broadband connection to download it. If you don't have broadband you can order it on DVD.
If it's a map of a new country you want Click on MyMaps and then click Shop for more maps an follow the prompts.

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.
