SOURCE: Nuvi 660 -- Loading Supplemental Maps

The best price I could find in the US for the
Euope maps was about $230 -on the internet - normal retail is $299. You have to buy and use it off the SD card, so depending on how long your trip is it might be more practical renting one, unless you want to try selling the SD card after you return.

Having problems in unlocking maps on a Zumo 660

Tip

Hi, thanks for the above info. My issue is different (I think). I've just...


A lot of people have looked for solutions to the message "No detailed maps that support routing" which can appear on Garmin Nuvi satnavs.

This solution can also be used when the message doesn't appear but no maps are loaded. When no maps are loaded try the instructions in paragraph 5 below Selecting Maps on your Garmin Satnav

If that doesn't solve your problem the maps may be locked. In this case return to paragraph 2 below and follow the instructions to the end

(This solution is for both PC and MAC users. Follow the instructions only for whichever you use).

The "No Detailed Maps Found That Support Routing" message may appear on your Garmin nuvi satnav for the following reasons:
  • The Satnav is missing it's unlock code
  • The maps on the Satnav have been disabled
1. To determine the cause of the message, touch the screen until the message "No Detailed Maps Found That Support Routing" disappears.
  • If you see a "Can't Unlock Maps" message following this, remove any microSD / SD cards in the device and follow the instructions below for Retrieving your unlock codes followed by the instructions for Creating an unlock file
  • If you do not get the Can't Unlock Maps message then skip to Paragraph 5. below Selecting Maps on your Garmin Satnav
2. To retrieve unlock codes you need to have your satnav registered with garmin. If you haven't already registered it, connect the satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com. Select your country from the dropdown list and click "Register your garmin device". Follow the prompts. You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe. You'll need them anytime you need to update your maps or solve problems in the future.

  • Select File
  • Select Save As
  • Change the Save As Type to All Files
  • Type gmapprom.unl in all lower-case letters for the File name
  • Select Save
  • Close the Notepad window
  • Delete the New Text Document file

  • Disconnect the Satnav from your computer
Creating an unlock code file for Mac:
  • Open the TextEdit application located in the Applications folder on the Mac HD
  • Click Format
  • Select Make Plain Text
  • Type in the unlock code that you retrieved from your mygarmin account. The unlock code should be in all capital letters and with no dashes.
  • Click Save As and name the file as gmapprom.unl (Note: Be sure to uncheck the box If no extension is provided, use .txt)

  • Copy the gmapprom.unl file to the GARMIN folder on your device. (Note: Save the file directly to the Garmin mass-storage device if connected)
4. If you have a second maps you may also need to unlock it e.g. if the first map is USA and second is EUROPE this may also need to be unlocked

New GARMIN 660 Won't get past the Intro screen


Problem solved: I got through to Tech Support. They suggested a 'hard reset', which solved the problem: Put you finger on the lower right screen while you power up and it will do a hard reset---and it will get past the "loading maps" screen, where it had been stuck.

How do you load maps? and are these Garmin maps. I try to keep the Zumo original and use an SD card for extra maps. Did you try this yet? And if you are using SD cards, try a different brand/quality. I had some lockups with crappy budget cards. Kingston, Sandisk and some other A brands work fine!
