Garmin 350 Unlock

I recently tried to install the new City Navigator NTv9 updates. I have followed the instructions, however, the maps remain locked. Can anyone shed some light on this process, and assist me?

    Have just bought a Nuvi 350 with SD card. Receiver keeps reporting that it cannot 'unlock maps'. There are no instructions on how to go about unlocking the maps on an SD card .

Did you buy the unlock key from garmin? You need this key to be able to use the maps on a specific gps (serial number) so when you update maps, you type in this unlock key and the maps are unlocked on the gps. There is a page about this on the garmin website

From the Garmin web site:
Question: What should I do if my Garmin nuvi / zumo displays the message "No Detailed Maps That Support Autorouting."?
Answer: Please follow these steps to troubleshoot the error message:
Checking the unit:
  1. Hold your finger down on the screen until the message "No Detailed Maps That Support Autorouting" disappears.
  2. If you get a locked maps message following this error please remove any SD cards in the device and skip down to the instructions for "Getting your unlock codes".If you did not get a locked maps message then please select tools>settings>map>mapinfo button.
  3. Check the box next to the mapping product City Navigator and you should no longer get the "No Detailed Maps That Support Autorouting" message.

Is there any updated map for streetpilot 2620 since 2008?


Yes. There is one more mapset and then there will be no more for us using the StreetPilot 2620. You are looking for the disc set North American Navigator 2009. Make sure you do not purchase the NT version. I found the item on EBAY for $81and purchased it and it worked just fine. The 2009 is the last compatible map set that Garmin released for the 2620. Be certain that what you purchase includes that unlock key otherwise you will spend another $75 on that at the Garmin Unlock Site.

Here is the link that is good for a few more days, however, may relist it. The seller is yumelectronics and the search term is 2009 City Navigator.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390193775928

Here is the search for EBAY:
http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=city+navigator+2009

Here is the item on Garmin's site:
https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=8465

Listed as:
City Navigator® North America This product has been discontinued but is still available for purchase.

It is $99.99.

Good luck, and let me know if you have any other questions.

How do i up date the maps garman nuvi 200w/250w


The Garmin GPS are among the easiest to use and they have the most complete mapping on the market. To update the mapping, there are several versions of the software integrated into these road gps. To name a few, city navigator version 8 and City Navigator 2008. With a newer version, you have the most recently built streets, new shops, new parking lots, etc.. To update, there are several ways to proceed. First, before you update your maps, I recommend you check if there is a newer version of the maps, visit garmin and download the plugin. You can also view the maps version directly on your gps.

Need to up date maps


Create an account at myGarmin regsiter your unit ID number this will allow you to unlock the maps that you buy. You then have two options the first requires you to have an NT 2009 or 2008 map already installed.
nüMaps Lifetime™This will cost you £99.99 and is a on off payment Remember — this map update can only be used to update the preloaded maps that came installed on your Garmin GPS device. For example, a Garmin GPS device preloaded with North America maps only cannot be updated with a nüMaps Lifetime Europe Map Update, and vice versa. Check product compatibility. nüMaps Onetime™ This will cost you £79.99 and does not rely on having a map already installed.
The City Navigator® Europe NT comes on a DVD or you can download it.

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.

GARMIN 510 2009 MAPS


I'm quite sure you need to purchase the 2009 City Navigator SD card to update the maps. That what I did last year to get the 2008 City Navigator maps. You will need to leave the SD card in the unit to use the new maps though..

I haven't been able to determine whether it's possible to update the actual install map on the device. I'm guessing it's possible but would require a computer and an map update to write directly to the device. If I find steps to update the installed maps, I will post them here.

Map data availability


"I tried to load the new 2008 City Navigator but the update was interrupted."

You deleted your previous maps, therefore there are no maps on the unit. Try reloading the maps again and this time let it continue all the way to the end. It will take a couple of hours depending on loading all maps or only certain states.
