Did you try to reset the unit? Place you thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate. Gently pull off the face plate. Press the reset button. Turn the unit back on and see if it works - Of course replace the face plate carefully. Good luck! Dr. Know

How do I install maps on my GPS?

First you need to have Mapinstall app on your computer

Once MapInstall is installed, to load maps:
  1. Connect the Garmin device to the computer
  2. Open the MapInstall program
    • MapInstall appears in the Start menu or Start screen on Windows
    • MapInstall appears in the Applications folder on a Mac
  3. Select the device or SD card
    • If all compatible map products installed on the computer will fit completely on the selected device, MapInstall will give options to Send Maps (Mac)/Continue (Windows) or Customize
      • Send Maps/Continue will send all the maps that will fit on the device
      • Customize will allow the selection of individual map products
      • Advanced/Partial Install will allow sections of the map products to be sent without sending the whole map product
    • If all map products installed on the computer will not fit completely on the selected device, MapInstall will give the option to Continue
      • This will allow the selection of individual map products
      • Advanced/Partial Install will allow the selection of individual sections of the map products
    • If loading the map to a SD card or an older Garmin device, MapInstall will give the option to Continue
      • MapInstall will allow the selection of individual sections of the map products - similar to the Advanced/Partial Install option
  4. Click Send Maps (Mac) / Continue (Windows)
  5. Click Confirm (Mac) / Install (Windows)
  6. Click Done (Mac) / Finish (Windows)1

Can't unlock maps

Perform a hard reset on the unit.
To perform this, turn the unit off and unplug it if its plugged into a power source. Touch and hold the lower right hand corner of the screen, and while holding here turn the unit on. When prompted to erase user data tap yes and allow the system to restart.

If that does not work you can also try here

All I can get when I turn on the system in the beginning blue screen, but will not go to the navigational screen

Do not panic when you have your gps receiver stuck on the navigational screen, the problem simply is that the file supporting the loading of the maps and other start up programs might have been corrupted or missing somehow.
The first way to solve this problem is for you to reset the gps receiver, by holding down the reset button or holding down the power on/off button for about 15 seconds, it will restart the gps receiver. This time it should come on to the complete navigational screen,
If it does not, the next solution is for you to format the gps receiver by connecting it to a computer and transferring your maps to the computer, then you format it from the computer, after formating, go to the website and restore your operating system or upload the latest software for your gps from there, then you update your maps and copy back your maps into the gps receiver back.
That should do the job for you. I hope this information helped.

I dropped my magellan gps system and need to order new sim card,which got lost when it was dropped

How could you lose the Sim on dropping it?

Any new sim card or SD card really will fit it. But if you are looking for map replacement then Magellan are the only people who can supply the correct maps. There is a charge for maps $150 approx. So be aware that they do not replace maps of SD cards free. You will need your serial number, as these are tracked to stolen GPS before any new map0s are provided.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Try Start Settings System GPS and tap ON before starting the satnav program. Not all programs automatically switch on the GPS. On hitting ON yellow light top left starts flashing. Now start your satnav program..

Red cross on sd card on startup

You can not use a sd card from one TomTom and put it into another TomTom. The operating system on the card is coded for each individual TomTom device. First try doing a reset with the card installed on your dads TomTom. The reset hole is on the bottom of the TomTom marked reset Use a streightened paper clip, insert the paper clip into the hole until you feel a click then hold it in for 20 seconds. If that didn't work and you have a card reader insert your dads sd card into the reader and make a backup of the everything on the sd card. Just copy and paste everything on the card to a folder on the desktop you have created on your desktop. Next delete everything on the sd card EXCEPT the maps and ttgo.bif or ttgo.bak file. Now that you have made a backup and deleted everything on the sd card except for the maps and ttgo.bif or ttgo.bak open TomTom Home. TomTom Home should see your card and install the operating system back onto the sd card. If it doesn't you may have to insert the sd card back into your dads TomTom and connect it to the pc. It may take a few times of doing this to get the latest operating system back onto your dads TomTom. You can do the same for your TomTom, but you cannot use any thing bigger than a 2 gb sd card. Do not get sdhc cards they won't work. This will only put the operating system for your TomTom onto the sd card. When you have installed the operating system onto your device it will say "no maps found", you will have to buy the map from TomTom..

I just purchased the Map update 2009 dvd. I installed everything and the computer said everything was downloaded. I restarted my garlin and it doesnt appear that anything is different then when I...

The only way you can be assured that your map update was successful is to check the version.
1) On your main screen, you'll have a little wrench tool, click on it.
2) On the next screen, go to the "Map" icon.
3) Next screen, click on the "Map Info"
4) Last screen you'll see the maps isntalled and the year.

Best of Luck!

No maps found

Look on the SD card in your PC and see if you can see a folder with the COUNTRY NAME of the map. If there is NO map then it is possible at some time in the past someone ( you maybe ) has done a 'drag and drop' on the SD card and accidently dropped the map into another folder. The other possible fault it that the map has been deleted off the SD card or the map folder / file has become currupted.

Spell state on GArmin Nuvi 350

Go into "Map Info" and make sure that check box is checked, so the system can "use" that map.
