SOURCE: kenwood dnx5120 no detailed maps?

Open the cd/dvd tray and close it again. it should be a disc-read fault. That can be, the disc is dirty or damaged. Hope it's only dirty.
greetings and hope it will work soon, Gilbert.

Garmin froze with a "Map Update Notice" the screen

The unit isn't frozen. If you tap the power button you will hear it beep and change screens. What has happened is your touchscreen has failed. This is a common problem. Your touchscreen needs replaced. If you want some troubleshooting info, please see this link. There is just too much info to retype here:

I have never updated my GPS and have had it for about 2 years. The map froze in one spot while driving around and I turned it off. When I did that it then said the map was locked. I tried a reset and now...

try plugging it in to the computer and updating it. chances are it could be a bug in the software and it should be fixed in the newest software update.

Clear all ur installed apps/data/music/pictures first. Turn the unit off and then on. while on, reset it again. turn it on again and now connect it ur PC to load additional maps and see if it helps.

How do i get music on my nextar gps

You did not include the model. But most have SD cards so put your music on one and insert it to play DO NOT put music on your map card as it may become corrupted.You cannot play music at the same time as using the maps anyway.

How do you download music to your gps

You do not download music to the GPS, put music files onto a SD card and then put that card into the GPS. You have to remove the Map SD card to do this so you cannot play music and use the GPS at the same time.
