Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver
It sounds like the map file is missing or corrupted or the route you want to use is just outside of the covered area of the normal maps.
If the unit is less than 60 days old you can update the map by connecting it with the usb cable to your pc and going to garmin and then running the update. Past that they want you to pay.You can download free map files for certain locations to your sd card. The localized maps ie just for one country or portion of it have much more detail than the stock internal map. You may need to look at purchasing one of those to get enough detail. I just used one for Fiji and it even had all the back streets on it. If you are in Canada or the US or Europe they will even have much more info.
I would call the toll free garmin support number and run the problem down to them. They can check your serial number and let you know the options. They should be able to tell you what map to use/get if thats needed.
