Question about Garmin Approach G5 Handheld GPS Receiver

2 Answers

When I turn on the G5 Approach I get a message that says "This device does not support one of the maps" and then you can not find any courses listed. Under play or preview no courses show up. I have down loaded the course maps 5 or 6 times. Still the same message.

Firstly, please connect your device to a computer. You will find a folder in the device called 'Garmin'. In this folder will be multiple files that start with the phrase 'gmap'.
Please delete the files starting with 'gmap'.
Once you have done this, please re-load the courses on your device using the Garmin CourseView updater which can be found here:

You almost certainly do not need it. If your map list is not showing or if it locked try this:

Nuvi 50lm can't find maps


There are two different things to try.

1. Do a hard reset, that should restore the software and maps to their base condition.

2. Run Garmin Express and apply any updates it shows.

Approach G5 screen say cannot unlock maps as soon as you turn it on. Suggestions?


There's information on how to unlock maps on Garmin nuvi satnavs at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing. I don't know if the approach G5 would unlock in the same way but there's a good chance it would since they're both made by garmin. All I can say is have a look at the information on the link, check if the information you need is available on myGarmin and if the same files are on your GPS. If all these are the same it should work.

I put new batteries in , pushed on button, Garmin screen comes on and that's it and then can't turn off. Need to pull the batteries to turn off. Any suggestions. This is on a Approach G5


Hello,

This sounds like a firmware issue try downloading Garmins WebUpdater Software and giving the unit a firmware update. If your are unable to connect the GPS to the PC you will have to send it in for warranty or repair. Here is a link to the Garmin Software you will require for the updates.

Hope this helps!

It happens when the device doesn't recognize the maps. That's why - in such a case - you have to downgrade the version of the maps.
What Navcore Version do you have on your device? Here's a cart to help you.
