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!!)

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:
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!
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 Info", select Map Info. Verify that there is a check mark next to City Navigator North America NT
do not bother i had a 700 roadmate they start having lots of problems like fozen screens to losing satilite signals ,get the magellan mastreo 4000 or the roadmate 800 both are portable and has rechargable internal battery,800 you can buy extra batterys,the 4000 has no extra batterys to buy,they both have windows core 5.0 and i have both of them the are real good with no problems.belive me .
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.
