    We have exactly the same problem plus it won't allow us to delete any entries. I updated the nuvi, with disc enclosed with purchase, and it is working fine so far.

Way point memory full and will not find route Can you help? What should I do?

Upgrade the firmware, it is a documented issue.

Hold your finger in one of the touch screen corners when switching the unit on. It will ask if you wish to delete all user data. Do this and your unit is hard-resetted.

This will lose all of your waypoints and favourites, but it'll restore your unit to you.

Enjoy

Updated Garmin Nuvi 200 with Garmin Express. Now the Garmin reads "No detailed maps found to support routing". I pressed on the screen until this mesage left the screen and returned to the regular start...


Time for an update. Go to Garmin.com and get it done. If you haven't done this for a while you might get a new OS too. The older models use a lot of the memory for the updates and might need to download a smaller range map.

7200 won't hold full North America upgrades. Can memory be increased?


Try this: Maximize your GPS Memory Your Garmin StreetPilot 7200 has limited storage space for waypoints, routes, and tracks. Once you reach that limit, your GPS can't hold any more data. Smart ExpertGPS users have figured out how to eke out every last bit of memory space on their Garmin GPS receivers. Before each outdoor adventure or visit to a project site, they use ExpertGPS to back up the contents of their GPS, and then clear the GPS data memory. They can then download as much data as possible onto their GPS (leaving some room for GPS data collection out in the field). When they get back, they use ExpertGPS to upload all of their Garmin waypoints, routes, and tracks onto their computer and save it. Once they've backed up the new data from their GPS, they can clear the memory again, keeping their GPS ready for their next trip.

My garmin nuva 1300 takes a really long time to load points of interest that i search for. For example, I typed in "Ocean City" to determine how to get to the beach, but it took a good ten...


I have a Garmin Dezl - which gets slower with less available memory. I can simulate slow behavior by planning a very long route - reducing available memory to the extreme. Unfortunately the Nuvi & Dezl (based on the Nuvi) doesn't have a function to clear up memory space.

In my situation I had to master reset the Garmin to get memory back. This clears all user data (including all POI's, favourites) and restores the factory state. A master reset works by holding the right bottom corner of the screen while pressing the power on button once.

I keep getting memory full message and route waypoints full on nuvi 610/660


The Navigator memory card will come with the a countrie's maps. Maybe you need to take the memory card into the computer and download more maps. Also try to erase the nt middle east location and start over.

Nuvi 660 not working


1-Check if you have 500 waypoints, Thats the maximum.

Be sure you delete the recents search via the menu. the recent use when you did a search for a place or adress, just delete.

2- could you confirm both of you if you did not add any other maps into the units ?

3- How many MP3 you have into the GARMIN files ?

Need this to answer your question properly ?

It should not happen if you did not overload the unit 660.

Everything has a maximum who is published by the manufacturer.

Best regards

Memory full is being displayed when i try to go to a new destination and when i try to delete a favourite the unit turns off.


Garmin nuvi 610 T
memory full was being displayed on screen whilst on destination ,sometimes followed by route waypoint memory full .

I found by turning unit off , then holding finger on top left of screen ,and at the same time turning back on again the unit would go into maintenance mode.
Follow prompts on screen to reset waypoint memory.
Mine works as good as gold now,hope this helps!

Screen says memory full and it won't map a route! GRRRRRRR


Hi, Please do not shoot the messenger (me) but this is a known problem with Garmin GPS units. According to Garmin Tech Support, this only occurs on Garmin units with older firmware. (Personally, I am not convinced this is actually true. I no longer have my Garmin C550, which I personally liked the best out of all the GPS units I have owned or used. I will buy another Garmin, probably a Nuvi, when this silliness sorts itself out.) Anyway, you have two options, neither of them acceptable to most people, including me. 1)Perform a HARD RESET which will wipe out all data on your unit, including your favorite points, Bluetooth connections, and almanac data (satellite information). Your unit will then need at least 40 minutes, with a clear view of the sky, to update the almanac and reacquire its location. To HARD RESET, unplug your C550 from the charger and turn it off. With the C550 screen facing you, press the bottom right hand corner of your screen and hold in (relatively firmly) and then press and hold POWER. You need hold both constantly for at least 30 seconds. Follow the instructions on the screen. See if any of your personal information is still there. If there is none, then you might as well perform Step 2 below. 2)Download and Load New Firmware onto the C550. Upgrading firmware is relatively easy provided you have a computer. Visit Garmin's website (www.garmin.com). Go to "Support" .. "Updates and Downloads" and then click "Unit Software." Download the software called WebUpdater. Run that and follow its directions. The new Firmware (Software that is loaded into internal memory that does not need power to remember the information) hopefully will fix the MEMORY FULL problem. Good Luck and please post back if the fixes helped or not. I really want the new firmware to work so I can buy another Garmin.
