    I ve SP COLORMAP - that unit doesn t have built in specific number so you can not use there other maps than Metro guide - that maps doesn t need unlock. I ve 8 MB garmin data card (there cannot be problem, becouse it is recommanded for this unit). I simply upload maps to unit and than I can t see street names (and cannot use search adress). Every road is nammed as "Road"...

Are the maps unlocked? You need to enter a 25 digit keycode to unlock the maps, before you download them to the memory card. What size card do you have? This since there are issues with the 256 MB cards/SP3 that have been sold the last two years. Garmin Will replace these cards with two 128 MB cards

TOm TOm XL 340s and it does not announce street names


hi, it wont announce street names if you have the human voice selected. you must use the computer generated voice du,b as it sounds, thats the way it is.

go tp the change voice option and select a computer generated voice and try again..it should prompt you that you have selected one or the other.

if this fails, let me know and i can give you something else to try

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


You have use the unlock wizard to install the key that is provided with the software. When I bought my Mapsource CitySelect, it came with two keys. The way Garmin does it is, you can install the software as many times as you want on as many machines as you want, but can transfer the maps, data, etc ONLY to unlocked devices. Last I checked Garmin wanted $75 for additional unlocks. Some data is not locked, like Topo maps and some tide points since this data is obtained (by Garmin) from the gov't, which is free for us (wel, minus taxes we pay). Contact Garmin support, they are very attentive.

Garmin zumo 550 map update problem


  1. Make a backup of your Zumo by copying all the file to your computer.
  2. Using your PC and MapSource select all the maps then send them to a SD memory card need 2Gig or bigger card.
  3. Try to rename this file to gmapprom.img and replace the same named file in your zumo. (I haven't tried this personally, so if it fails, just replace this with your backup and all will be as it was.)
  4. If this fails, you can use the SD memory card in your zumo and it will use this map instead, but it will take longer to boot your zumo.

Garmin Street Pilot III map source data card not accessible


Garmin has issues with the newer (ROHS Compliant) cards, so If you recently bought this card get a replacement from garmin.
I had these issues too with a 256 MB, garmin replace the card with 2 128MB cards, worked fine after that.

Re: Not sayinstreet names.
After you turn on your unit touch the wrench icon in the bottom right of the screen, this will take you to a menu which features "Settings" in the upper left of the screen. Touch "settings" and scroll down to "language" by using the up and down buttons in the lower right of the screen (down 1 should do it). Touch "Language" and in the voice category find and select "American English - Jill (TTS)". This is the voice that will give you Text To Speech (TTS) speaking the street names in English. If you prefer Spanish or French, find the appropriate catergories with "(TTS)" beside them - "Espanol Americas - Paulina (TTS)" and "Francais Canadien - Julie (TTS)" respectively. Any other selection will only give directional instructions such as "turn left in XXX".

After you have selected your voice press "OK" and back out to your main menu showing "Where to?" and View Map".

Now, when you navigate, you should hear an American female voice giving you directions by street name - assuming your volume is high enough to hear it.

RE: The computer icon displaying when you try to use your unit in the car with the 12 VDC cord.
You probably have a problem with the cord. The pin length in the USB style connector is critical and if it doesn't match up just right the GPS thinks it is hooked up to a computer. If you know someone who has a Garmin NUVI try using their cord and see if you have the same problem. Either way, call Garmin and see if they will send you a replacement cord or otherwise help fix the problem.

Street Map Program for Garmin GPSMAP 295


Detailed road map data, with addresses, hotels, gas stations, etc. can be loaded into a data-card/cartridge/memory-card using Garmin's Mapsource software such as Metroguide or City Navigator. This can be changed as needed via a PC.
The 295 does not have driving routing/guidance through the streets as most of today's GPSs have, but it will show you exactly where you are on the street (but it should be switched to Road mode).
Driving routing is possible on the PC using Mapsource, but ithe route doesn't transfer well to the 295 because of the limits on waypoints.

Map problem


There are two type of maps in the unit. There is the basemap which shows the states and major highway and roads and then there is the actual Mapsource maps which shows the streets. If you go to Mapinfo and it doesn't show anything, then Mapsource maps are missing.

With the 2610 you can use a card reader for the Compact Flash Memory card to load the maps. This is much faster since the card reader is USB 2.0 while the Garmin USB is 1.1 Under device look for the drive letter which correspond to the Campact Flash card.

Verify that you have the correct basemap for the country that you are in. There are two maps inside a new Garmin. The basemap which shows all the major highways and mapsource which shows all the street. If you don't have the correct basemap try changing 'Navigation' Advoidance to avoid highways and Toll Roads.
