More then likely when the screen froze up on you it it had a little power glitch as well, nothing serious but it did wipe out some of the information in it's memory about the SD card.Power the unit up and let it come up with the error, then use the reset button. Might be hard to find since it's just a little hole with the word reset around it, using a paperclip push in the button and see what happens. If the error comes up again then i am thinking that you will need a new SD card. Quick test for this, remove the SD card from the gps unit and try rebooting, it should come up with an error, no SD card or no map, stick in an SD card from another device, 2gb, see if the gps can find the card, it should give you an error that says unable to find maps. If you get these error codes then most likely the gps unit is fine but it pooched your programs on the SD card.
Hope this helps

Stuck in restart mode, keeps restarting and will only work once sd card is taken out


Did you download a new program or app before this happened? Try plugging sd card into a computer and delete any recent downloads and then try the card in your tablet again.

To reset your TomTom device, do the following:
  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.
  2. Remove the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, remove it.
  3. Reset your device.
    Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for at least 20 seconds. The reset button is a hole at the base/bottom of the device.
  4. Turn your device on.
    Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds or more, until the GPS starts up. It may take a minute or two of holding it down.
  5. Insert the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card.

Gps has lost its maps, screen says can't unlock maps


There several reasons you may receive the message Can't Unlock Maps on your nuvi or zumo device.
  • Can you press OK and get to the Where To/View map screen?
  • Did you load maps to the unit using the MapSource or MapInstall program?
  • Did you load maps to an SD data card?

If one of the points above applies to you, please follow the steps below to clear the Can't Unlock Maps message:
  1. Remove SD card from unit, if applicable.
  2. Plug the unit into your computer with a compatible USB cable.
  3. Open MyComputer/Computer icon. (Mac users skip this step.)
  4. Right-Click on the Garmin drive and select Open. (Mac users can locate the Garmin drive mounted on the Desktop.)
  5. Open the Garmin folder.1
  6. Locate a file named gmapsupp.img
  7. Right-Click and delete file named gmapsupp.img
  8. Safely disconnect your unit from your computer to see if the Can't Unlock Maps message is gone.

1. Nuvi 1100/1200/1300/1400/1600/3700 and Zumo 665 users will open the Map folder instead.

*If the gmapsupp.img file does not appear in the Garmin folder, please create an unlock file for device.

Magellan roadmate 1412 just stop working and displayed the following messange: "SD card has been removed. Program will restart. Please insert SD Card with map"


Providing you saved the SD card info as soon as you got it, reformat the SD card and copy the files over. Or find a friend that has the same unit and copy their files. Reformat your card before also.

GPS CAN NOT FIND MAP DATA FILES


I had a similar problem with a nextar X4-T, which has it's maps on an SD card. If your GPS uses an SD card for it's maps, you can try this:

You will need a computer with an SD slot, and running Windows Xp. I tried the following method on a computer running Windows Vista, and it did not work. I tried again on an older Xp machine, and it worked first time.

  1. Put the SD (Map) card in the computer's SD slot.
  2. Open Windows "explore". (RIGHT click on "Start", then select "explore"
  3. Locate your disk on the file menu.
  4. RIGHT click on the map disk
  5. A menu pops up.
  6. At the bottom of the menu, select "properties"
  7. Another menu pops up, with several tabs along the top.
  8. Select the tab that says "tools".
  9. In the "error-checking" section, select "Check Now"
  10. Another menu pops up.
  11. Select the box that says 'Automatically fix file system errors".
  12. Click "Start"
The program will only take a few seconds to run. If it works, you will see the file directories of the SD card display on the "Explore' screen. You can then put the SD card back in the GPS, and see if it works.

Good luck.

Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS cannot load map to memory card


The Garmin C340 comes preloaded with maps while the I3 require that the maps be installed onto a micro sd card.

You can place the micro SD card into a SD adapter and use a regular card reader to download your maps. When the software ask for 'Device' to download to use the drop down arrow and find your drive letter associated with the card reader. Using a card reader will be much faster since the it is ubs 2.0 vs ubs 1.1

You could also go to Garmin website and download and install the USB drivers, see link below.

Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS cannot load map to memory card


A way around this is to insert the SD Card into the computer (SD Card reader), point the directory to the card and install the maps like that. I had to do that the first time I bought my unit because I couldn't figure it out and got frustrated. So I thought of this easy work-around.

TOMTOM 510 not reading SD card


I did find out how to solve the problem. I can't remember exactly where I found the solution but I think it was on TOMTOM website. You have to connect to TOMTOM home and reinstall the application. I put the TOMTOM disc in the computer (which came with purchase) and reinstalled the program. Which I thought was weird as everything appeard to be fine with TOMTOM home). Anyway, it worked. Good luck.
