My Garmin nuvi does not show rerouting of roads.

I have a Garmin nuvi 350. There are new entrances to the Fl. turnpike and also newly constructed entrances to I-4 in Orlando. My GPS does not have the new changes therefore We are always in the wrong lane.

These are mapping issues and is not an indication that there is a problem with your unit. You didn't mention what year of map is on your unit. You can find this out by pressing the wrench symbol on the main menu and then the map icon and then "map info".

the 2010 map is now out but all maps were created at least a year before they are released for purchase. It is very possible that some new roads may not be included if they were constructed after the map was released.

You can also notify the map company about certain roads that are missing but I would first make sure that your unit's map is the latest release. This is not a Garmin issue.

A map update "may or may not" fix the problem, because it depends on the date of the map updates and when the construction took place.

you can go HERE and download and install the web updater and follow the instructions.

it will tell you if there is an update for your maps

let me know if you need further help

Garmin 350 road disappears


You are in an area that the map does not support. If this is a new construction or street, highway etc it has not been updated on your map loaded on the device. You can check with Garmins website to see if a map update is available. If not you will have to wait until it is updated and released by Garmin.

Hope this helps

Will not properly display rural areas near Greenwood,Nova Scotia ,Canada postal code b0p1n0


If you have the most updated maps installed the only other option I can tell you to try is making sure that all your avoidances are selected properly. Usually by default your avoidances are set so they don't recognize things like rural roads, toll roads, dirt/farm roads for fastest directions and speed. Look into this and see if your adviodances are turned on. If so then turn them off and see if your roads are there. If it doesn't work then you will need to connect your garmin to the PC and run an update to see if you have the latest map update.

Hope this helps

You might be choosing Shortest Route and that's exactly what it will do - find the shortest route, no matter what the quality of the roads. You should try choosing Fastest Route.

Loading mp3 files to garmin nuvi 350


The device is not recognizing the file name. The Garmin GPS will only recognize MP3 files. Ipod (MP4) and other media files will not play. Converting the files to the MP3 format will correct the problem.

Garmin Nuvi 350 not recognizing some major streets


Sure enough it was the zoom. If it is a very small street, you have to zoom in to be able to see that you're driving on a road. Thanks for the help!

Verify that you have the correct basemap for the country that you are in. There are two maps inside a new Garmin. The basemap which shows all the major highways and mapsource which shows all the street. If you don't have the correct basemap try changing 'Navigation' Advoidance to avoid highways and Toll Roads.
