How do I get my Garmin 1350 gps to take the highways not the back roads. Have tried it on "shortest distance" and "fastest" doesn't work either way


Setting the Avoidances to Enabled and checking off the box beside the Unpaved Roads should avoid most back roads unless the back roads are paved.
Setting the GPS Route Preference to the Faster Time will usually route via the highways unless it is actually faster to take the secondary roads.
In any case it is usually a good idea after creating the route to view the map and have familiarize yourself with the route. Via points can then be added to modify the route as necessary.

Garmin Nuvi 1350 showing on screen "no map data available"

Shut off the nuvi.

Remove any memory card (if equipped) from your nuvi.

Plug the GPS into your computer via USB cable.

Open the Garmin "drive" icon in "My Computer"

Navigate to the x:/Garmin directory or "folder" (where "x:" is the drive letter assigned to your Garmin). Locate either map files set(s) named: gmapsupp.img or gmapprom.img.

Some units store map files in the hidden x:/.System directory instead. To view the .System folder and contents, you must direct your computer to display both the "system" and "hidden" files.

If you lack large files named either gmapsupp.img or gmapprom.img (about 1 GB or more); your maps are missing from the internal memory of the nuvi and will need to be reloaded.

If you pulled a memory card above, reinsert it and check the directories for the same gmapsupp.img or gmapprom.img files. If they're not present there, the maps should be reloaded.

I hope this helps

My new Garmin Nuvi 1350T. When I try to enter an address for "where to?" I'm told "No Map Data Available" It was working fine for the past several days.

Most likely the problem is that the map has become unselected. You can find how to select the map at There's more information there than you need so you can jump straight to paragraph 5, near the bottom of the page, to find what you need.

If this doesn't solve the problem the may may be locked. You can also find information on unlocking the map at the same link starting at paragraph 2.

I have 2 Garmin (205W and new 255W). I downloaded the new map update to my PC, and installed the maps onto my 255W. When I turned it on, all seemed well, but after I passed the safety screen, I got the...

It should unlock automatically.
Try reconnecting your device to computer and going onto the garmin site and get the website to check for updates.
If that fails to work, give garmin a call or send an email to them.
they are normally very quick.
