Is Mapsource installed on your PC?
Are you using the "Receive from Device" icon?
Is your unit being recognized when you use "Receive from Device"?

If your answers are yes to all of the above, you might have to update your Mapsource programme (free of charge) from the Garmin Website. Also, updating your unit software from the Garmin site is also a good idea.
Please let us know if this fixes your problem.

"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.

NO DETAILED MAPS FOUND TO SUPPORT ROUTING


You need to unlock the unit. I had the same problem with one that I have. Try this:

The No Detailed Maps Found That Support Routing message could be due to 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 get 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.

Error message when I turn NUVI 260W on....


Try three things:
1)Do a reset
2)Do a Master reset
3)Try doing a full software update by getting the free program from Garmin called WebUpdater.

I keep getting memory full message and route waypoints full on nuvi 610/660


The Navigator memory card will come with the a countrie's maps. Maybe you need to take the memory card into the computer and download more maps. Also try to erase the nt middle east location and start over.

This happened to me twice, and both times were after I had downloaded a long route. Both times, the only available fix was to do a "hard reboot" by selecting page-OK-power and then selecting "yes". That restored operation, but it also deleted the downloaded maps, routes, and waypoints, and forgot my preselected options.

(In MapSource, I had used the "Select maps around route" option, and both times the total memory associated with the selected maps was much less than 115MB - one was 59MB and the other was 63MB. And in three years this has never happened when fewer maps were loaded. My experiences therefore suggest that the actual working memory available for downloading is much less than 115MB - I don't yet know what the actual limit is.)

Error message on screen (read message below)


Did you tried to update your Maps? There are two maps inside your Garmin. Basemap which covers all highways and major roads and mapsource source which cover regular streets. Try reloading mapsource maps.

From the "Where to" menu select the little wrench and then select map and then select Map info. What does it say for Map Info?

If the unit is still under warranty, call Garmin and get a RMA. Return the unit to Garmin.

TomTom One Europe


What is happening is your map updates are being copied onto your memory card without overwriting the old maps hence you are running out of memory.

In the tomtom home browser you should be able to delete your old map before installing the new one. Make sure you have a back up of the map card before you try this though so you can reinstall if something goes wrong.

Also have you replaced the voice prompts on your tomtom? The voice files take up a lot of memory so if you have put new ones one without removing the old ones you will be wasting memory.

There is one window in TThome that lists eveything installed on yuor card so have a good look at this and see what you can get rid of.

Dell Axim + Tomtom. Routeplanning error


The error during planning is a map error not an OS error. It will give you this warning if you try to nav somewhere that it cant see any way of getting to because there is a gap somewhere en-route. Normally its the last 100 yards or something. The workaround is to nav to an adjoining road or somewhere very close to where you want to end up. Oddly or maybe coincidentally (which I doubt at 60,000 miles per year) I have only had this happen on the new maps.
