If you are getting a Can't Unlock Maps message, you have a problem with the map unlock code on your unit. If your Garmin is not a preloaded device, you may need to verify that you are using the correct unlock code and re-install your mapping software.

If your GPS is a preloaded device, such as a nüvi, or if you cannot get this issue fixed with this information, please call Garmin at 1-800-800-1020 for further troubleshooting.

Cannot unlock the maps in my garminedge 705. When i turn unit on message comes up cannot unlock maps


Information on unlocking garmin maps can be found at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

There's more information there than you need since the article is about garmin nuvi satnavs that display a message "No detailed maps found that support routing" but part of the article deals with locked maps. The principle is the same for the garmin Edge but you'll need to skip to the part that deals with unlocking maps.

My GPS keeps saying cant unlock maps after i already loaded maps on it


The Garmin Maps require a map unlock code in order for the GPS to be able to open/access it. Since the maps are copyright protected by Garmin you should of recieved the unlock code from Garmin when you purchased the new map update.

Unable to unlock new maps


Where did you download the Australian maps from? If from Garmin, contact Garmin for the unlock code. Maps have to be unlocked to a specific unit.

If you downloaded the maps from the internet, you will still need to contact Garmin for an unlock code.

I cannot unlock the maps


Garmin mapping software comes with a security number. You need to contact Garmin and they will give you this number, if you purchased your maps through them or an authorized dealer.

I can't unlock my maps


Buy your map updates from Garmin, and Garmin alone.... then you can call on their excellent full customer support. They even supply you with an unlock code when you purchase maps direct from them as part of the deal. (these numbers will be recorded with Garmin, so contact them if you lost yours).
If you download maps from 'shady' sites, you get shady programs too.
Some maps downloaded have been found containing trojans to send details of your linked bluetooth products (phone details, computer details)

Hope this helps.

Cant unlock maps


What is the Garmin 510 that can't unlock maps stating exactly? And to Nici07 who said, "Need to unlock device", are you referring to a PIN lock or locked maps?
