Question about Garmin nuvi 780 GPS

1 Answer

No data available and no maps downloaded

Have a Garmin Nuvi 780. When I go to punch in an address to get to, I get a warning message of no data available. When I hit a favorite, I get another error message that says unable to calculate route: no roads near starting point. I tried this inside and outside. DO I have a problem with my unit, or do I just have to play with the position of it in the car?

It may just be that the maps are deselected. to correct this go into the tools/settings/map and then at the bottom of the screen in the middle you will see map info tap that and then at the next screen it will show you the maps which are installed if there are any without ticks just tap the box. tap ok and try again if. if there are no map choices then you will need to reinstall the maps on your unit

Have you updated the software since you purchased the unit? If not, go to Garmin's site, download WebUpdater and check to see if there is an update to the unit's software. If so, download this and see if it helps. If not, try downloading the same version of the software again. This might help also.

Try connecting it to your computer via a USB cable. Then log on to Garmin's webiste and download a map update. Then you can put the map update on your GPS to replace the ones you lost. All Garmin customers get one free map update. After than it's about $40-$60 dollars for an update.

Do a hard reset on your GPS. Download and install Garmin Express from Garmin. Plug your GPS into your computer. The software will identify your GPS and allow you to download new maps to it.

You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mod.

Garmin nuvi 780 says no data found and no maps


Sounds like the data on your SD card is corrupt. If you know somebody else with the same unit and model try their SD card. If not them you are most like going to have to buy a new SD card and install the maps and operating system onto the new card. Should be instructions on you install Cd assuming you have them.

My nuvi 780 only displays large freeways and no


Have you checked to make sure that the map is checked "ON"?

Please see this link:

http://www.sharc.net/discus/messages/6/75.html?1253054729

If the map is not checked "ON", you will only be getting the Base Map information (major highways - no street detail) and you wont be able to search for places of Interest (POI's).

Did you try to perform a map upgrade to 2008? Turn on the Garmin and from the main menu touch the wrench, then press Map, then look for Map info.
