    My Quest has 245mb of memory for maps, but when I download maps I can only get about 25mb of maps to load. If I try to download more than that, I don't get any maps loaded at all, I can only then use the preloaded base maps.

Hello, I currently own a Garmin quest myself, and some time ago I had some strange problems myself, I am a electronics technician, and I do have a work around for you. I will explain the problems and a cure for you to try, none of the work arounds depend on any parts to be removed.

1. NO RECEIVING SATELLITE TELEMETRY. I beleieve this could be due to a number of reasons, but more so at sometime corrupted telemetry was the problem to fix this,
a turn GPS on when booted (initialised)
b. depress menu
select settings
select Time Setup
when in Time Setup depress MENU
Select SET DATE
Depress OK button
Depress OK button again on the numberic keypad that appears on the screen (DONE)
what this seems to do is resets the internal date/time clock and the unit starts to work again.
the Second workaround is this but takes hours to perform.

Simply turn the Guest on and allow the battery to fully discharge, usually this works to TOTALLY flush the Memory again, but on my unit I have to setup all the maps again, this is easy to perform, but just takes time. I hope this helps you.

"Detail maps Don't Support Routing" in Garmin Quest


I too have a Garmin Quest and yesterday felt like throwing it against the wall because of the above problem. I found the solution eventually. When you download the maps from the Garmin Maps page, where you select the maps download, make sure that the checkbox to "Include route calculation data" is ticked before downloading your maps. Also make sure that the total memory required for the number of maps selected does not exceed the available memory on your Quest. If you try to fit more information into your Quest than it can receive then you are bound to have some problems. The Quests seems to have different memory specifications. According to the USA spec the memory is only 128mb, the Garmin site says 115mb and the box that my Quest came in says that it has 243mb.

Screen froze up


"If your Quest locks up....on rare occasions, your Quest may freeze or lock up. In this case, reset the Quest by pressing the unit's Power key and the IN key at the same time. This will turn off your Quest. The unit will operate normally when you turn it on again."

Rong turns


Hello, I also own a Garmin Quest GPS and I live in Australia, Invariably my quest sends me in the wrong directions, and also in the middle of a highway get a message do a U TURN. I only believe this error resides in the MAPSOURCE Software. and until GARMIN decides to fix the problem there is NO solution for the USER to FIX. I also do NOT believe any more the specification that garnin states with the quest GPS, I believe it can ONLY be bad Telemetry downloaded from the satellites or you have TOO MANY waypoints stored in your GPS. The Solutions I am about to give you are my way of fixing the GPS until the problem reoccures. I suggest you do OPTION 2.

none of the work arounds depend on any parts to be removed.

what this seems to do is resets the internal date/time clock and the unit starts to work again.
the Second workaround is this but takes hours to perform.

OPTION 2 Before you do this DO YOU KNOW HOW to RELOAD your MAPSOURCE MAPS.

Simply turn the Guest on and allow the battery to fully discharge, this is also a good practice to cycle the battery. usually this works to TOTALLY flush the Memory again, but on my unit I have to setup all the maps again, this is easy to perform, but just takes time. I hope this helps you.
