Question about Garmin StreetPilot i3 GPS Receiver

2008 update for street pilot i3

I cannot load the new maps - followed all instructions but when it comes up to choose which area maps to load clicking does absolutely nothing - you can not go any further in the load because you can't choose what to load - we actually returned 1 update package but the new one still does the same - again clicking on the map does not do anything

do we need to load some type of upgrade or patch?

we are trying to update Garmen Street Pilot i3 with 2008 map updates

When you say you are clicking on the map, are you just using your mouse pointer to click or have you actually selected the Map Select tool at the top of your Mapsource screen?

Just updated the software with webupdate for windows_242 from garmin website succesfully. ''No detailed maps found that support routing. The street pilot cannot be used without them. comes up when...


The "No Detailed Maps Found That Support Routing" message may appear on your device for the following reasons:
  • The GPS device is missing it's unlock code
  • The maps on the GPS device have been disabled
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 error, 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 the instructions for Enabling maps on the GPS device
Retrieving your unlock codes:
  1. Log into your myGarmin account
  2. Select Manage Maps
  3. Select Details
  4. The unlock code is located under the Installed Maps.
Creating an unlock code file for PC:
  1. Plug your Garmin device into the USB port
  2. Double-Click on My Computer or Computer located on the desktop
  3. Right-Click on the Garmin or nuvi drive
  4. Click Explore
  5. Double-Click on the Garmin folder
  6. Right-Click in a blank space in this window
  7. Move your mouse over the word New
  8. Select Text Document
  9. Press Enter / Return on your keyboard
  10. Double-Click on the New Text Document. This will open the New Text Document in a window called Notepad
  11. Type the unlock code that is listed in the Manage Maps section of your myGarmin account in all upper-case letters with no spaces
  12. Select File
  13. Select Save As
  14. Change the Save As Type to All Files
  15. Type gmapprom.unl in all lower-case letters for the File name
  16. Select Save
  17. Close the Notepad window
  18. Delete the New Text Document file
  19. Disconnect the GPS device from your computer
To check that the map has not been disabled. Press Tools, then press Settings, then press Map, then press Map Info and see if your map has a tick to show it's selected. If not press the map name to select it. It should then work.

I have had my street pilot for about 2 1/2 years and it says i need to load new maps. i am satisfied with it the way it was. i dont need new maps. it wont come up. is there anything i can do?


Garmin releases new maps yearly and have their devices programed to give you a message telling you to update them. You dont have to update them, and its only suggested if there is quite a bit of new construction where you live or your planning a road trip. If you are happy with it now then just ignore it.

The only way to update the maps is to purchase new maps from Garmin and download them via the computer. The 2008 map updates are currently available, and Garmin has told me new maps will be out in a few months.
