Updated to 2008 maps, now I lost my local roads and town maps

I updated my garmin c330 with the new cd, but now when the satelite receives the signal, the little arrow is in the middle of a blank area, Some areas are shown but not my town. Before the update It worked fine.

I also updated to 2008 maps and lost all my local roads. I can not enter an address.

Turn on the Garmin. Look for the little wrench on the screen and select it. Now look for Map, select Map. Now look for Map Detail. Verify that it is set to "Normal" or Higher to get more map details.

Are your maps updated?

If so the road you on a new road that hasn't been programed into the maps yet?

Could be a few things going on, lost satelite, or a new road.... word to the wise Always carry a road map in your vehicle, GPS is a great tool but not always 100% right especialy if your on a new road, Maps are updated I believe every 6 months or more.

Love my 760

Free map updates for Garmin c330

Garmin has released new maps. Most of their units are entitled to a free update if the unit was purchased recently Just a heads up to anyone who recently purchased a C330. According to Garmin's tech support, the map udate 2008 is not free to those of us that recently purchased a C330. Only to those who purchased a C340 and up. Their excuse is that it is a "low end" unit, and also that the memory cannot hold the full US maps on the DVD. Gee, I can purchase the update for $69.99 and load a subset of the maps if I want, according to the person in tech support, but I cannot receive it as a free update. So, apparently buyer beware if you purchase Garmin's "low end" units. You will apparently not be able to receive a free update of maps, even if the unit you buy is already out of date.

Did you try zooming either "in" or "out" ??? Did you verify that the new maps are installed? Did you try doing a reset?
