Have you registered the mapping software with Garmin? You have to register it, they will provide you with the unlock key, and then you enter the unlock key in your software so your maps can be used in your Garmin GSPr. Each code is specific for the software and the Garmin unit.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 205 can't unlock maps

First, check to make sure the map file is there. The file name is gmapprom.img. It's located in the Garmin directory. It should be 1GB in size. To do this you need to connect the Nuvi to a PC with a USB cable.

Next, please tell me what year of map you have on your unit, 2009, 2010, etc.

Them, email me your units internal serial number. Its a 10 digit number (not the number on the outside). The number starts with a "3" and can be found by pressing the tools button, then system and then "about".

Please email me at sharcnet-usa AT sharc DOT NET

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.

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


You have use the unlock wizard to install the key that is provided with the software. When I bought my Mapsource CitySelect, it came with two keys. The way Garmin does it is, you can install the software as many times as you want on as many machines as you want, but can transfer the maps, data, etc ONLY to unlocked devices. Last I checked Garmin wanted $75 for additional unlocks. Some data is not locked, like Topo maps and some tide points since this data is obtained (by Garmin) from the gov't, which is free for us (wel, minus taxes we pay). Contact Garmin support, they are very attentive.

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.

Garmin 350 Unlock


Did you buy the unlock key from garmin? You need this key to be able to use the maps on a specific gps (serial number) so when you update maps, you type in this unlock key and the maps are unlocked on the gps. There is a page about this on the garmin website

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.
