VUS016R works - or not

I am in Farmington Hills MI, about 100 miles away from where the card starts - i cannot pan to the lake.

If i insert it with the unit off - the unit hangs on the Garmin splash screen.

If i insert with the unit on - then pan - it goes to a blank screen
Information says - Map: - None

    your solution led me to take a look on the sd card i have

    2 folders



    EULA is blank

    GARMIN has 2 files

    gmapsupp.img nearly 1 gig

    gmapsupp.unl 1K with a license key (assumed) in it

    Can i put these 2 files on a blank sd card and have it work?

    I got the card from, and although i have an account with them, my wife doesn't and she got it for me for fathers day.

    Thanks for your help.

The reason there is a part map showing is what is left in memory. When starting from scratch it loads from the very beginning boot strap and goes to the sequence of trying to load the basic menu and then the map and provide options to program a new journey. Once it has passed the splash screen it should encounter the map data. there is no data so it cannot progress.and thus reports no map or map data.

Your options to fix this are straight foerward, you need to restore the maps from the original CD , internet source or a backup. If you have the details of purchase or the map ID you should contact the distributor and acquire a replacement. Failure to be able to provide the details may cause you to incur a fee for a new licence for the restoration.

Thanks for the opportunity to assist you

    First EULA
    Short for End-User License Agreement, the type of licence used for most software An EULA is a legal contract between the manufacturer and/or the author and the end user of an application.
    The EULA details how the software can and cannot be used and any
    restrictions that the manufacturer imposes (e.g., most EULA’s of
    proprietary software prohibit the user from sharing the software with
    anyone else).

    Your directory for the licence is BLANK! and shouldn't be

    Transferring the files to another card wont restore the lost data.
    Also the licenec is usually tied to the SD card for security reasons. that meands that another card used will not work and if you copy files to it ( even if its a full copy) the program will only load a certain pont and then ask for the licence key to be entered to proceed.
    This prevents you using someone elses files on your card. Most times when you buy maps and place the sd card in your machine it shows in Settings ABOUT a unique ID number that is supposed to be kept somewhere safe so in the event of failure you can quote this for a replacement set of files to write on that same SD card

Electrical doesn't affect the engine mechanically. Besides making it run rough or shutting it down. Engine mechanical does affect the electronics though. Sounds like you have an electrical problem that needs attention. Also sounds like you have an engine that just threw rod/main bearings. At 4500 miles, I hope you have a warranty on this engine.

What a store hours in lake of the hills IL

This isn't how it works. If you ask a question on fixya it goes to a bunch of random strangers, not to people who have an inside track on the store hours in Lake of the Hills, IL. I think you should try Google Maps. Go to Lake of the Hills, IL and do a search for stores of the type you are interested in (like Sporting Goods or Beer or Groceries or Comic Books). and then it will show some stores in that town. Then look at the different stores and Google Maps will have information for them. It will show a phone number sometimes, and sometimes a web site, and sometimes the store hours. Here's a starting place.,-88.3466085,13z/data=!4m5!1m2!2m1!1sstore!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0x888d699f1baf21e1

Change of fluid and filter helps. The condition of the old oil will tell you weather there might be more damage. Debris on the oil may also be found in the transmission solenoid which controls the fluid which engages the gears. Your solenoid may be dirty or damaged. It is also possible that the valves for the 3rd gear is dirty that is why you are staying on the 2nd gear. These two components needs to be inspected further by opening the transmission.
