Do you have an sd card installed with mapping data on it ( a folder named garmin)? Or a defective sd card?
I had this error with a copied map, seems to be an issue with a wrong or missing *.unl file, which is an unlock file for unlocking map data

Garmin 1450 won't pick up states in gps


Make sure you didn't just install a portion of the maps. try re-Loading the maps from the Garmin Express program, then check the map info screen by pressing Tools>Settings>Map> Map Info
it should say something like CN North America NT 2015.10, then all, or lower 49 or lower 49 NE (north east) etc

Can I download Australian maps into my Mio Moov R403 that I bought in the U S A loaded with USA road mapping.


The R403 is a basic GPS navigator with a 4.3-inch screen running on Windows CE 5.0. It features TeleAtlas maps for all 50 states plus Puerto Rico, and a database with 4 million points-of-interest from Info Data.
U should have checked before buying this device that it works in ur state .
First check that it works in ur state or not
Do replay me if u want any more help.. ( ^ _ ^ )

When I insert the Micro SD into the Garmin, the maps are not being read off of the card. When I try to plot a coarse it states "No Maps" loaded.


  • Press TOOLS
  • Press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on some models that don't have a settings icon)
  • Press MAPS
  • At the bottom of the screen press MAP INFO
Your map names should be shown with a tick beside them. If the maps aren't loaded the tick is probably missing. Press the map name and the tick will appear. The map is now selected and should load.

Make sure that you go into MAP data and select this chart as the map info. You might just be using the internal base map right now.

2009 map update not loading


Does it recognise the Nuvi? Are you connecting it through a usb Hub. Are the drivers for the nuvi installed properly? Usually there is a folder named USB, thats where the correct drivers reside, and that's where you tell the computer to look when it asks for the drivers.

Putting maps on sd memory card


(Untried)
For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.

Must have:
1 - Street pilot C330

2 - 512mb SD card
3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice)
4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America

What to DO:

1 - connect the GPS to the computer
2 - Insert the Map update disk
3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States
(Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)

4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"

5 - Open the folder called "img"

6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)

7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"

8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)

9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)

10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)

11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.

12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.

When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.
