Good day My Garmin doesn't have maps anymore is there a way i can update it?

The maps are probably there but not selected. TO select the aps
  • Press TOOLS
  • Press SETTINGS
  • Press MAPS
The name of your map should appear with a tick beside it. If there's no tick the map is not selected. Press the map name and the tick will appear. THis should solve the problem. IF not the map may be locked. You can find detailsof how to unlock your maps at
There may be more information there than you need so you can start at paragraph 2.

My maps are gone how do I fix it

The map may be unselected. To select it;
  • Press TOOLS (the spanner icon) in the bottom right corner of the WHERE TO and VIEW MAP screen
  • Press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings icon)
  • Press MAPS and then MAP INFO at the bottom of the screen
This should show you the maps installed on your satnav. There should be a tick beside the map name if it's selected. If not press the map name and the tick will appear. This should solve the problem.

If this does not solve the problem the map may be locked or deleted. If the map is locked it should say so at the map name. If there's no map name then the map may be deleted.

You can get details on how to unlock your map at

If the map has been deleted you may be able to download it again from the garmin website depending on how old it is. Generally you can download the map for about 6 months after it was first installed.
  • To download the map again go to
  • Click on the myGarmin tab at the top of the page.
  • If you haven't already registered your satnav do so on this page by clicking "Register your garmin product" and follow the prompts
  • When you're registered log in using your username and password
  • Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the page
  • Your satnav name will be on the left hand side of the page and your map name in the centre. On the right it will either say "No update available" or "Update available"
  • If there's an update available downloading and installing it will solve the problem but you'll have to pay for it. Alternatively click on where it says "Details" in blue under your map name
  • This brings you to a screen where, if the map is not too old, you get the option to download it again. Click on "Download again" and follow the prompts to reinstall it.

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 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.

Go to 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.

There are 2 possible reasons for this. The most likely is that the map is not selected. Go to Tools, Settings, Map and press Map Info. Is the map ticked. If not press it and it will tick. The map should then work.

The other reason is that the map may be locked. The instructions for unlocking the map are at

I recently (July)purchased the lifetime update option for my Nuvi 350 and with assistance from Garmin was able to update my unit. My unit has displayed a notice twice since the update that the maps are...

Please look to see what map year that you have on your unit. At the main menu, press the "wrench" symbol, then the map icon and then "map info". The map should be 2010.... either 2010.10 or 2010.20...etc. If it's anything older, like 2009 or 2008, your unit was not updated.

If you have 2010 as the map year, you are fine. Also remember to ugrade your firmware too...
