When the memory in the watch is full detail (ie mapping points) of the earliest runs are deleted but the aggregate data (eg total distance/time etc) is retained. If you want to save the mapping points you need to download it to a PC fairly soon after doing the run (depending of course on how much you use the 305). Although you can use the Training Centre software supplied with the 305 I prefer sporttracks which is a third party donate-ware application which many users find to be much better than TC.

No map info on nuvi 205w


Plug your nuvi into your PC. Go to the Garmin.com website and log into your account to see your map information. You can go to your account and see the map downloads and reinstall it from there. Or you can download their software "Garmin Express" on your PC. Run the software while your Garmin is plugged into your PC and it will check for any updates for you.

Hi, I have a Nuvi 255 (205 series) gps, three years old. Last week the screen went blank, came back grey with 'crosshairs' and a black dot in the middle indicating 'press here'. I did so and the dot moved...


Graham - what your describing sounds like you somehow managed to erase the street level maps and POIs in your Nuvi.

If you connect the GPS to the computer with your USB cable, you should at the contents of the Nuvi directories and find a file called GMAPPROM.IMG or GMAPSUPP.IMG. These are the street level map files. Generally, these are found in the root directory of the Nuvi - or if yours has / and you use a memory card slot for maps - find it in the /GARMIN directory. GMAPPROM.IMG is the name of the first map set and GMAPSUPP.IMG is the name of the supplementary or second map set (if you purchased & installed one). You will likely have only one of these files - and may be named either. The size of this file depends on the area and age of the map. Current maps of the entire US run over 1 GB in size. If you do not have any maps named GMAPPROM or GMAPSUPP, you will not see any street level maps.

Something happened to delete the maps. Garmin will probably NOT provide free replacement maps for you, unless under warranty. If the devices is trashing maps and other files, you probably want to replace the unit under warranty or not. Garmin will, upon return of your old Nuvi - replace it with a factory refurbished unit with the latest maps installed, for $79. You can take advantage of this service by following this link to Garmin Service.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

My maps are gone how do I fix it


The map may be unselected. To select it;
  • Press TOOLS (the spanner icon) in the bottom right corner of the WHERE TO and VIEW MAP screen
  • Press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings icon)
  • Press MAPS and then MAP INFO at the bottom of the screen
This should show you the maps installed on your satnav. There should be a tick beside the map name if it's selected. If not press the map name and the tick will appear. This should solve the problem.

If this does not solve the problem the map may be locked or deleted. If the map is locked it should say so at the map name. If there's no map name then the map may be deleted.

You can get details on how to unlock your map at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

If the map has been deleted you may be able to download it again from the garmin website depending on how old it is. Generally you can download the map for about 6 months after it was first installed.
  • To download the map again go to www.garmin.com
  • Click on the myGarmin tab at the top of the page.
  • If you haven't already registered your satnav do so on this page by clicking "Register your garmin product" and follow the prompts
  • When you're registered log in using your username and password
  • Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the page
  • Your satnav name will be on the left hand side of the page and your map name in the centre. On the right it will either say "No update available" or "Update available"
  • If there's an update available downloading and installing it will solve the problem but you'll have to pay for it. Alternatively click on where it says "Details" in blue under your map name
  • This brings you to a screen where, if the map is not too old, you get the option to download it again. Click on "Download again" and follow the prompts to reinstall it.

When i turn my nuvi 255w on i get the fallowing message. no detailed maps found that support routing. the nuvi cannot be used without them.


It sounds like the map file is missing or corrupted or the route you want to use is just outside of the covered area of the normal maps.

If the unit is less than 60 days old you can update the map by connecting it with the usb cable to your pc and going to garmin and then running the update. Past that they want you to pay.You can download free map files for certain locations to your sd card. The localized maps ie just for one country or portion of it have much more detail than the stock internal map. You may need to look at purchasing one of those to get enough detail. I just used one for Fiji and it even had all the back streets on it. If you are in Canada or the US or Europe they will even have much more info.

I would call the toll free garmin support number and run the problem down to them. They can check your serial number and let you know the options. They should be able to tell you what map to use/get if thats needed.

My garmin 1300 says no detail maps found gps wont work with out it


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.

REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

GARMIN NUVI 200 SAYS NO DETAILED MAPS FOUND THAT SUPPORT ROUTING


You can download new maps..........free......................but..........

I had this problem last year with my garmin 200 and when I called they said that I was out of the 60 day time window for a free map upgrade but they would give it to me anyway. They gave me detailed instructions on how to download a new map free of charge but they didnt explain which selection replaced what I already had on mine.
As a result, I downloaded the wrong maps and have much less detail. Even though its the "2009" version, its less acurate than my old maps were. But its worth a shot, better than paying for them.
