Hi,

I have the same issue on a Nuvi 350. Navigating to a POI is not a problem, whereas typing an address is not possible. My Nuvi350 is complaining about not being able to find the country...

Regards,
Geoffrey

Gps has lost its maps, screen says can't unlock maps


There several reasons you may receive the message Can't Unlock Maps on your nuvi or zumo device.
  • Can you press OK and get to the Where To/View map screen?
  • Did you load maps to the unit using the MapSource or MapInstall program?
  • Did you load maps to an SD data card?

If one of the points above applies to you, please follow the steps below to clear the Can't Unlock Maps message:
  1. Remove SD card from unit, if applicable.
  2. Plug the unit into your computer with a compatible USB cable.
  3. Open MyComputer/Computer icon. (Mac users skip this step.)
  4. Right-Click on the Garmin drive and select Open. (Mac users can locate the Garmin drive mounted on the Desktop.)
  5. Open the Garmin folder.1
  6. Locate a file named gmapsupp.img
  7. Right-Click and delete file named gmapsupp.img
  8. Safely disconnect your unit from your computer to see if the Can't Unlock Maps message is gone.

1. Nuvi 1100/1200/1300/1400/1600/3700 and Zumo 665 users will open the Map folder instead.

*If the gmapsupp.img file does not appear in the Garmin folder, please create an unlock file for device.

SD Card for magellan 300,Can I use any card on it? I've just got it as a gift without the card. Is there any website where to buy it?


The Magellan Roadmate 300 and 300R both require preloaded map data to be supplied from an SD card. You can't just pop any card into the slot and get it working. It requires a card of 2GB or less loaded with Magellan mapping software. Magellan provides nationwide maps and regional maps. The 300R was a regional unit while the 300 included a national basemap.

If you have a model 300, you can still use the highway basemap to get routing from city to city but you will not have detailed address routing at the residential street level unless you insert an SD card with Magellan software. If you have a 300R model, the unit will be useless without the Magellan software on an SD card.

Magellan doesn't seem to offer much software support for this unit any more and the maps are difficult to find.

Garmin Nuvi 200 Maps Disappeared


Hi,
Hope this helps!

I wanted to add maps to my 250W. I found the maps I wanted on a Torrent. However, many searches around various forums never revealed how to install these. Found the following through reading and experimentation.

1. Downoaded map image file GMAPSUPP.IMG. Download also gave me "Use code XXX when generating unlock code for maps"
2. Downloaded Garmin Unlock Generator 1.3 by JetMouse
3. Looked on my GPS to find the UnitID
4. Entered the UnitID into Garmin Unlock Generator. Ignore the GM XT device unlock code and the top Generate button.
5. Selected Map Product as Custom and entered the code given for the downloaded image file.
6. Hit the bottom create button to generate a 25 digit code.
7. Download Img2Gps and run
8. Click Load Folder to load the image file. Select the tick next to it.
9. Check the Use Unlock Key option and paste the 25 digit code in.
10. Load a blank SD card into your Garmin
11. Connect the Garmin to your PC using a USB cable. You should see two dirves in windows: one is the Garmin and the other is the "Removable Disk" SD card.
12. Create a folder called "Garmin" on the SD card
13. Select Folder/Card in Img2GPS
14. Click "Copy Maps". Select the folder /Garmin on the SD card. You may need to click copy again.
15. Upload will take a while.
16. You should now see a file GMAPSUPP.IMG on the SD card in the /Garmin directory.
17. Create a new text file called GMAPSUPP.UNL in the same directory (make sure it does not have a hidden .txt extension).
18 copy the 25 digit unlock key into this file.
19. Close the file.
20. Disconnect the Garmin.
21. On Startup it should load your original maps and the new ones.

My Garman c340 will not let me enter a state and complete an address. I tried resetting the system and noting changed the system seems confused.


Sounds like you have an update problem. If a GPS cannot find an existing address. Your map is not up to date. Probably have the 2008 version.

TO GET 2009 MAP IS NOT EASY! Software update is, from the Garmin site you can update software easily BUT THE MAP... you must purchase for $69.99 OR if you're a technical person who knows the following instructions you can save some $$$

search torrent for
"CNNANT2009-1 MapID 396"
under torrent sites, you know what you're doing.

Use these instructions if you have downloaded it.

Download these first:
cgpsmapper.exe
gmaptool.exe
MapSetToolKit.exe
and MapSource where u can directly get from Garmin site
http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=209

Create these folders on the root drive: (I will choose one to make things easier, you can change)
C:/grmtmp
C:/grmtmp/extract

Connect your GPS to USB, and BACKUP then remove
X:/Garmin/gmapprom.img and gmapprom.sum (may be gmapsupp.[img+sum]) approx. 1GB

1) Copy gmapsupp.img from this torrent to C:/grmtmp;
2) Extract gmaptool.exe, cgpsmapper.exe and mapsettoolkit.exe to C:/grmtmp/extract
3) Open a command prompt, and navigate to the extract folder ("cd/grmtmp/extract")
4) Run "gmaptool -S ../gmapsupp.img" Note that is -(CAPITAL S), lower case s is for different option
5) The above will extract files, you will get some warnings about 10 degrees. Ignore them.
6) Run "cgpsmapper mapset00.mp"
7) Run "MapSetToolKit"
8) In MapSetToolKit, press "Install A Existing Mapset"
8a) TDB File: "mapset00.tdb
8b) Overview map: "mapset00.img"
8c) Registry name: "WhateverYouWant" (I did "Grm2009.1Update")
8d) Leave TYP files blank, and hit "Install"
9) Close MapSetToolKit and run MapSource
10) Ignore any requests to unlock map, not ready yet.
11) Go to "Utilities-Get Unit ID" and Find Device with your GPS plugged in USB. Write down Unit ID.
12) Run Garmin Unlock Utility, Enter that Unit ID at the top.
13) Select under "Select Map Product"
14) Ender 396 for the FID/MapID, use the Generate button to get 25char code.
15) In MapSource go to "Utilities-Manage Map Products"
16) Go to "Unlock Regions" Tab, and hit "Add...", enter 25char code, comment optional
17) Now on the main MapSource screen, type 'm' to enable map tool.
18) You should see a large white rectangle, with rectangle outlines (these represent NA maps)
19) Click and drag to select them all, you can click "Map Set Name" if wanted.
20) Click the "Send to Device" button. Wait an hour. Enjoy.

How do I create my own maps for a Garmin GPS? I live in South Korea.


Hi
Heres your solution
Software you'll need:
GPSMapEdit - The program you'll use to actually create your map
cGPSMapper - The program that creates a file for use with your GPSr
MapUpload - For sending maps to your GPSr
Software you may want:
OziExplorer - Necessary if you're going to be tracing your map using scanned paper maps or other raster maps
GPS Track Maker - Another map creation program that has better tools to edit imported tracklogs. If you're working with tracklogs, you'll probably want this.
Inno Setup - For making Mapsource installable maps.
Data

There are basically three ways you can get data for your map:
Download GIS data from the USGS / DNR / Etc.
Collect your own tracklogs and waypoints as you ride
Trace a raster map (scanned paper map or a graphical map from the internet)
Or you can download maple software from
http://www.mapwel.biz/
These are its features
Create your own maps for Garmin automotive and handheld GPS
Create maps from ESRI SHP MP, GPX, GDB (Garmin GPS Database), KML, DBX, PLT or WPT files
Editor and support of user defined styles
Trace tool (raster-to-vector conversion)
New ! - Automatic conversion of whole raster image to vectors
Updated 28.04.2008 - more colors supported, faster processing, faster rendering in GPS, automatic image colors reduction and resampling
Add your maps to other maps in GPS
Delete specific maps from GPS or from IMG file on PC
More than 700 projections and geographic systems supported
Export into IMG, KML (Google Earth) and MP formats (Advanced version only)
Fast free-hand digitizing with tablet or mouse
Free demo
Free map loader
For use in Earth Sciences, Cartography, Geology, Geodesy, Forestry, Geoscience, Mineralogy, Petroleum Geology, Geomorphology, Geocaching, Aviation
Hope this helps and do let me know

No detailed maps found that support routing.


You're unit is probably missing the gmapprom.img file (failed update maybe?).

Try contacting Garmin - if you've got registered maps they may send you another copy (although big file - 100+MB)
