Have you recently loaded new maps or supplemental maps? If so there is a file you have to delete to recover access.

If your Nüvi keep displaying the maps are locked, you will need to erase a file from the units memory. Connect your GPS system to your computer; go to start then ‘My Computer’, and double click on your device file (mass storage system), there you will see a folder named ‘Garmin’.
In this folder are several different files, look for file named gmapsupp.img. Right hand click on this file and delete as this file is causing the maps to lock.

No detailed maps found that support routing


Please connect your Nuvi up to a PC and look to see if you have the map file "gmapprom.img" in the Garmin directory. The file should be around 1.5 to 2 GB in size. If the file is missing you will need to replace it. If you have registered your unit with Garmin, you may be able to log into your Garmin account and download the map file again. If you can't, then you will need to send the unit to have the map file restored by a service shop. More info on missing maps can be found here:

Error message appeared and can not do anything with it now


Here is the the lastest response:

Thank you for contacting Garmin International.

If you updated your nuvi 200, 200w, 205, or 205w to City Navigator North America NT 2010.10 between 4/7/09 and 4/25/09, and your unit is display the message, "No detailed maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot be used without them." or "Can't unlock maps." A new revision of the 2010.10 update file (Garmin_RMU_CNNANT2010C.exe) has been released which corrects this issue. To download this new revision, please follow these steps:

1. Log into your myGarmin account
2. Click Manage Maps and Downloads
3. Connect the nuvi to your computer
4. Click Download Again next to your nuvi
5. Click Launch Download Manager
6. Follow the prompts to install the Download manager
7. Save the file to your Desktop

The new download may take a few hours to download. Once the file has fully downloaded, double click the file to run it, and follow the onscreen prompts to begin the installation again. You will now be able to choose the appropriate region for your device.

Note: Please make sure to only select the region that originally came loaded to your device. For example, if you have a nuvi 200 that came with the Lower 49 States, select that region and not a region that includes Canada.
