My garmin nuvi 200 says no detailed maps found


From the Garmin web site:
Question: What should I do if my Garmin nuvi / zumo displays the message "No Detailed Maps That Support Autorouting."?
Answer: Please follow these steps to troubleshoot the error message:
Checking the unit:
  1. Hold your finger down on the screen until the message "No Detailed Maps That Support Autorouting" disappears.
  2. If you get a locked maps message following this error please remove any SD cards in the device and skip down to the instructions for "Getting your unlock codes".If you did not get a locked maps message then please select tools>settings>map>mapinfo button.
  3. Check the box next to the mapping product City Navigator and you should no longer get the "No Detailed Maps That Support Autorouting" message.

Garmin Nuvi 1300 Preloaded maps not available on device


There's 2 possible reasons for this;
1. The map is unselected or
2. The map is locked.

To select the map;
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon on the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS or LOCALE depending on which is on your satnav.
  • Press MAPS and then at the bottom of the screen press MAP INFO
The name of your map should be shown with a tick at the side of it. If it's not ticked press the map name and it will appear. The map is then selected.

If the map is locked you can find details of how to unlock it at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing
There's more information there than you need so you can skip to paragraph 2.

Earlier today i updated my garmin 880, and now i can't search for anything. "no map data available" continues to pop up every time i try to enter anything... also only major highways/interstates...


It's most likely that the map is either not selected or locked. You can find the solutions to these problems at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

Try starting at paragraph 5 of the above link, selecting maps. If that doesn't solve the problem the map is probably locked so go back to paragraph 2.

Maps are locked on sd card how do I unlock them to use them?


Normally there shouldn't be a problem taking maps off of an SD card. The only time that a Garmin unit will put lock codes on maps located on an SD card is if the maps were purchased and already unlocked on another unit. If someone tries to then use those maps on a different unit the Garmin system will check to see if they have been accessed already. If they have then the unit locks them out. The only other thing that may be going on is that someone else put a password on the maps. If that is the case then you will have to get that person to give you the code.

My sgh-i617 gps is locked, to force you into downloading maps


Remove the battery for sometime and then reinsert it and power on the device. I do not know what maps you are using. I would recommend google maps v 3.2. Download it from maps.google.com or from m.google.com/maps.

Global map 5200c loading problems- navionics platinum hot maps


I had the same problem with my handheld Lowrance Hunt C. After installing the card and locking it in place, I had to slide the card "out" toward the locking mechanism. It barely moves, but worked after that. Whenever I load the card, I now slide it out and it works every time.

Each map is locked to the unit serial number. The only way to get the map to work on another unit is to buy the maps and register the map serial number and you will receive a unlock code from garmin.

Go to the following link to unlock the map

Cant unlock maps


What is the Garmin 510 that can't unlock maps stating exactly? And to Nici07 who said, "Need to unlock device", are you referring to a PIN lock or locked maps?
