You have to email customer service and provide proof of purchase, then they will delete the current registry allowing you to register your nuvi with your own info.

A route cannot be calculated to your destination. Please check your routing preferences and try again. Appears on screen with old and new destinations and Post Codes.Can you help please?


It means that no roads/routes exist to drive to the destination you inputted, sorry just the messenger. Is your map software up to date, if not update it, that may be the issue.. I update mine every 4 or so months.

How do i update my gps


A GPS will help find the shortest and fastest routes to a particular destination. When the maps are out of date, the GPS may not be able to find the best route. A GPS should be updated at least once per year. Some GPS manufacturers will allow the user to download free updated maps; however, many manufacturers require the user to purchase updated maps. Updating a GPS map isn't complicated, and will take about 2 hours to install.

1.Turn on the GPS and plug the USB cable into the USB slot located on the GPS.
2.Plug the other end of the USB cable into the USB slot on the computer.
3.Insert the map update DVD into the computer. If you have a map download, locate and open the file on the computer.
4.Click on Update Firmware located on the main menu. Click "OK" when the firmware is finished updating.
5.Unplug the USB from the computer and turn off the GPS. This will allow the firmware to reset on the GPS. Turn the GPS back on and select the language and time.
6.Reconnect the USB to the computer and click on "Update Map," then click on "Load Maps."
7.Connect to the Internet by clicking on the activation link. This will display the activation number. Find the serial number located on the back of the DVD. If you downloaded the update, a serial number was provided. Enter the serial number and activation code into the update program to continue updating.
8.Close the program after it has completed the update, and unplug the USB from the computer and the GPS. Turn off the GPS to finish the update.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

I have a Garmin 200W and want to update it so my maps & routes are current. How do I do that?


If the unit is new you get a free map update within the first few months after that they will charge a fee, but you can still update the unit for software and fixes.
Here is what you need to do to update the map your Garmi nuvi 200W; first make sure the unit is fully charged, then go to the Garmin web site and register your product. Next download Garmin Updater and connect your nuvi with a USB cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. When done follow the instructions on your screen. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

How do I get my GPS upgrade to in clude the new routes


unless you update maps on a regular basis (once a year or) new roads may not show on screen, the Map updates are not free,Garmin charges about $100 USD, the other issue is that not all the roads in the USA are in the software, so this can happen, the system is not perfect but it is good, just wanted you to knopw that Nextar doesn't have any updates, other do like Garmin and Tomtom.

Garmin zumo 550 map update problem


  1. Make a backup of your Zumo by copying all the file to your computer.
  2. Using your PC and MapSource select all the maps then send them to a SD memory card need 2Gig or bigger card.
  3. Try to rename this file to gmapprom.img and replace the same named file in your zumo. (I haven't tried this personally, so if it fails, just replace this with your backup and all will be as it was.)
  4. If this fails, you can use the SD memory card in your zumo and it will use this map instead, but it will take longer to boot your zumo.

Explorist 210 no base map


I solved this problem by gonig to the secret menu by holding the nav + power. I entered the value # 95 in the menu. This will let you format the memory area in the unit then I down loaded the latest firmware update from magellan.com and installed it on the
unit.I had already made a copy of the files on the unit in my hard drive so i copied the files back to my unit so that i did not loose anything important like poi's and geocaches etc...

PS when I did the firmware up date the base map must have been restored.
