Look for the file "gmapprom.img" in your Garmin directory on your GPS. The file should be nearly 1GB. If that file is missing, then yes, your map is gone. You can verify this by pressing the wrench symbol at the main menu, then the map icon and then map info. If the button is grayed out, your map is gone.

Also make sure your map isn't turned off. We have a procedure to check that here:

If your map is indeed gone, you can contact the manufacture who may allow you to redownload it. If not, we can certainly resolve this problem for you by sending you unit to us.

I am trying to download an update on my Garmin but I get the response, " Your device does not have the recommended space for the region you selected." I am just needed the US. How can I make more space...

Hi Jwatkins99,

Depending upon the model of your Garmin, these tips should still apply. If your unit uses SD cards for maps, try deleting all other country maps, including Canada and Mexico, if you don't plan on going there. You should do a backup of the SD card data if possible. Use the computer for this. I usually backup the maps then delete some of the larger maps on the opposite coast or side of the country...if I don't plan on visits soon.

If you have external data in your units main memory, try clearing some of that out using your USB hookup to your computer. If your maps are on the main memory, be careful not to get into those Folders (Directories to us Nerds) and inadverently delete the software programming for the GPS unit.

Also, if you're using SD cards, your unit may allow you to use something larger than a 2-4 GB card. Then you should have plenty of memory.

Let me know if this helps. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

I have deleted pre loaded maps in my gps colorado 300. How do I reset.

If the maps are deleted they are gone! Contact Garmin and ask them to replace the maps. There is no way of resetting deleted maps.

TomTom One N14644 text to voice - I hooked it up to the tomtom site to update maps and everything is cleared off. The only message on the tomtom is No Maps Found! How to I get my stuff back????

I do some work with TomTom - it's possible that if something interrupted or went wrong during the install, the map could have been deleted. TomTom is aware of the problem and is working to fix it - if you are map-less, call support (866 486 6866) and we can work on getting you a new map.

Garmin 205w nuvi cannot unlock maps

Ok so I decided I was going to return this thing tomorrow after hours of frustration, so I decided to get crazy with it and then figured out something that seems to have worked (will probably still exchange it for a Magellan or something other than Garmin though).

It's gonna sound crazy, but I opened up the Garmin drive on my computer (Mac, so not sure how this works on PC), and deleted everything I could see (not hidden files). EVERYTHING.

I then went ran Disk Utility and reformated the "Hard Drive" (on PC I would guess your able to do the same somehow). It still ran after that, but obviously could not find maps (since I just wiped every trace of a map away).

Next step, I ran Garmin Map Manager and transfered map for my state (AZ) (I have the latest map update saved on my computer, so I'm guessing Manager used that). Unplugged from comp, powered up, and voila! I will need to download my voices and vehicles again, but hey at least it's working again.

Tomtom 300 software update deleted my maps

Hi Albert. Theres lots of data on the card besides the map that your tomtom needs in order for it to work. Theres really no solution can be offered as unfortunatly something has happened to the data on your card and something is either missing or corrupted. Exactly what would need to be investigated and its not really within the scope of doing so on this forum. Without any judgement to you or anyone else can I warn all other tomtom users ..... BACK UP YOUR SD CARD TO YOUR COMPUTER before you attempt any "update" to your tomtom. If you have made a backup Albert then I suggest you reload the backup onto your card and everything should work again. Fingers crossed. You might need to do a hard reset by pressing the reset button underneath your tomtom with a paper clip through the reset hole. Good luck.

How to delete names/places you dont want anymore

Can you tell me what you mean by "items" ? if you mean names or places , these cannot be deleted from the Maps but if you mean POI , these can be deleted by entering "manage POI" in your tomtom menue.
