Unfortunately Garmin doesn't provide those maps for free for your unit. You will need to purchased Canadian maps to load onto the machine. You can buy them directly from Garmin at:

or if you are in Canada and want to call them, please call:


They can sell you the maps that way, and you can verify that it will include all the areas and detail that you desire.

I am so sorry about that! Hope this helps you out.

Why my receiver does not work in Canada

If your GPS is bought in USA or Canada, it is impossible for the receiver not working. If you can't find a place in Canada, may be you can check again if the address you key in with the country "Canada" first. Some GPS needs you to put in the Country name first. Good luck.

I want to leave Michigan and go to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I am unable to program this into my Garmin nuvi 1300. Any suggestions?

You will need to enter an address in Toronto for it to be able to route. Try "1 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario". That will take you to downtown Toronto.

When I type in Ontario looking for province it comes up "no match found" so cannot proceed with address function. . I have brand new garmin 1300


If you are searching for provinces in Canada you must also have Canada selected as your country. So when selecting your province of choice also make sure that the country you have selected is Canada. If your unit is a 1300 it would not have came with an Canadian database. Check your map information do this by going to Tools > Settings > Map > Info you will be able to ell from here if you have Canadian mapping or not.

Hope this helps!

The Nuvi 350 comes with US, Canada and Puerto Rico. When you press Where To? and it asks State/Province, type a Canadian Province, such as Ontario. See what it asks next. It should ask for the City. Try Toronto. Then press Done twice. It should provide you with some addresses in Toronto. This should show it is mapping for Canada.
