Roadmate 700 error message "No map data on hard drive"

I tried to purchase the updated North America maps from the website. Thought I was instructed to update the 'version' and now get an error/informational message when booting up that there is "No map data on hard drive' and to contact the helpline.

They are saying that support for this model has been discontinued (I have only had it for about 2yrs!!)

Can you help?

    I have the same problem, and I called support same result they can't help, all they can do is sell you a new unit and give you money off if you send in your old unit. They told me if I spend the 79.99 for the new 6 version it may work and get my maps back or it may not. So is it worth the risk to try and update the new maps for 79.99 or spend 139 for a new unit, it sells for 199 but they will give me 60 dollars off if I send in the old unit, Boy big help they are, you would think they would just let you reinstall the maps you had, problem being they came preloaded on the unit and now that they are deleted there is no way to get them back, you would think they have a disk or flash disk with the maps you could have if you lost your maps, you already paided for the maps when you got the unit.

Did the update fail? Sounds like it. You might want to try the update again.

I have recently purchased nüMaps


Since you have (2) maps, North America and Europe, you will have (2) map files on the directory. They are:

gmapprom.img (North America map)
gmapprom1.img (Europe map)

Do you see both of these file names? Do you have unlock files associated with them such as:

gmapprom.unl (North America map unlock code)
gmapprom1.unl (Europe map unlock code)

These files should be 1 gigabyte or more in file size. If they are not, then they are possibly corrupted.

Does Garmin GPS 295 contains Maps for Africa and the Middle East


Hi there -

The GPSMap 295 can only have one region at a time - North America, South America, etc. You can purchase an updated database specifically for Africa and the Middle East - it's about $50 USD. It will erase whatever region you have in there right now (you can't store Africa/MidEast with America, for instance. It's one at a time.)

The Garmin Website:

http://shop.garmin.com/aviation/databases/

lets you download new Jeppesen databases to your GPSMap 295. Select your model, then select which region you want.

***Before you buy:*** You'll have to have the data cable to connect it to your computer. Without that, you will have no way to update the maps and database.

If you do have the data cable, the process is very easy - just follow the instructions carefully, and make sure all the numbers they ask you for are correct. I just did mine today. Good luck!

No map data no hard disk


Typically I'd change out the hard drive. Your not able to access your location on the map right? or are you able to access the map at all? In your position, if your product is OUT of warranty. Open your unit up and make sure the cable going from the main board (big one) to your hard drive are tight. Other then that, try resetting user data. At the user menu (after restarting) press "-" and repeat button at the same time. Scroll down to reset user data, then see if anything changes. I'm almost positive it's your hard drive, and you can't just go out and buy one of those. So, good luck.. if nothing else you can just send it down here to Fort Worth, Tx.
