I had the same problem. Through a process of trial and error (firewalls, Google searches) I stumbled on my own solution.

I went to the Garmin website and logged in to the user account I had previously created when first registering the GPS unit I was going to use the MapSource data with.

One of the options when you have logged in is to unlock Map software. I went through several screens, entered my voucher code and then got the 25 digit unlock code. Hey presto, MapSource now working.

Not sure whether you can create an account without having a product to register, but this may help if you do have an account.

In attempting to unsuccessfully download maps on Garmin for a NUVI 255W, I am now receiving an error screen on my Garmin: No detailed maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot be used without them....


Ok I had same problem. Copy the mapupdater .exe file to another computer with internet access. Connect your GPS and then run the updater file. This worked for me. Good luck

Just registered my new tomtom start how do i get £10 voucher


Hi.

You receive a voucher code in your email. The code is sent as an email message.

If you did not receive the code, check the spam folder first, and then contact TomTom.
The TomTom voucher code can be used to place orders fromwww.tomtom.com . Entering the discount code you will get £10 off on the purchase.


Regards.

Garmin c510 error message "No detailed maps found that support routing. The streetmap cannot be used without them" Don't have pin number! Solution?


You're unit is probably missing the gmapprom.img file (failed update maybe?).

Try contacting Garmin - if you've got registered maps they may send you another copy (although big file - 100+MB)

SISTEM SOFTWARE MISSING on my Garmin NUVI200 GPS


All Garmin users,

There is no easy solution for this except to return your unit to the nearest Garmin outlet. You need to have very special equipment called an E-Prom burner or writer which only Garmin have. With this equipment they re-programmed (restore) the operating system back on your specific Garmin unit and model.

The problem why anybody can't do it is because there is no way you can access your Garmin unit from a pc or mac if the operating system is lost or damage on your Garmin, for the simple reason your pc or mac can't reconize the device that is pluged in, because there are no communication platform between the two devices.

As simple as that, life with it or send your Garmin gps to an autherized professional Garmin dealer.

GARMIN NUVI 200 SAYS NO DETAILED MAPS FOUND THAT SUPPORT ROUTING


From the Garmin web site:
Question: What should I do if my Garmin nuvi / zumo displays the message “No Detailed Maps That Support Autorouting.”?
Answer: Please follow these steps to troubleshoot the error message:
Checking the unit:
  1. Hold your finger down on the screen until the message “No Detailed Maps That Support Autorouting” disappears.
  2. If you get a locked maps message following this error please remove any SD cards in the device and skip down to the instructions for “Getting your unlock codes”.If you did not get a locked maps message then please select tools>settings>map>mapinfo button.
  3. Check the box next to the mapping product City Navigator and you should no longer get the “No Detailed Maps That Support Autorouting” message.
