Hey mgpeplow,
In order for your Nuvi 360 to Work with the latest 2009 Update, you will have to get the new software for the Nuvi. Visit their website, and it will have a download for the latest software. Install it and you should be all set.

If this helps at all, please rate this a FixYa. - Evolution

Backup and Restore Favourites on Garmin Nuvi Satnav


If your garmin nuvi satnav becomes faulty it may have to be reset or indeed scrapped. Either way you lose the places saved in your favourites folder.

If you have backed them up to your computer it's a simple matter to restore them to your reset nuvi or to a new one.

To Backup Favourites in GarminNuvi Satnav


Instructions for PC:
  1. Connect the Garmin nuvi satnav to your computer
  2. Go to the Start menu
  3. Choose My Computer (or Computer for Vista and Windows 7)
  4. Right-click the Garmin nuvi drive and select Open
  5. Double-click the Garmin folder (For nuvi 1xxx series units skip this step)
  6. Double-click the GPX folder
  7. Right-click on the Current.gpx file
  8. Choose Copy from the right-click menu
  9. Right-click on any blank area on the desktop
  10. Choose Paste to put a copy of it on your computer's desktop
Instructions for Mac:
  1. Connect your garmin nuvi satnav to your Mac
  2. When you see the Garmin nuvi mounted to the desktop, double-click on it
  3. Double-click on the Garmin folder (For nuvi 1xxx series units skip this step)
  4. Double-click the GPX folder
  5. Click once on the Current.gpx file
  6. Go to the Edit menu at the top of the screen
  7. Click Copy "Current.gpx"
  8. Click any blank area on the desktop
  9. Go to the Edit menu again
  10. Click Paste Item
Now, if for some reason you need to put the file back onto your garmin nuvi satnav, you will need to send it over to your satnav using a program. For the PC, you will need MapSource which can be downloaded at:http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=209

To send the file back to the satnav using MapSource on a PC:
  1. Connect your Garmin Nuvi satnav to the PC
  2. Go to the Start menu
  3. Highlight All Programs (Or just Programs for Vista and Windows 7)
  4. Highlight Garmin
  5. Click MapSource
  6. Click on the File menu
  7. Select Open...
  8. At the top where it says "Look in:", select Desktop
  9. At the bottom where it says "Files of type:" select GPS eXchange Format (*.gpx)
  10. Click on the Current.gpx file
  11. Click Open
  12. Click on the Transfer menu
  13. Click Send To Device...
  14. Select the GPS in the Device drop-down list.
  15. Click Send
Currently MapSource does not work with the Mac operating system so you'll either need access to a windows computer or a windows environment on your Mac to send the file back to your satnav.

How do i put music on nuvi 360


You need to connect your Nuvi to your PC using a Mini-USB to USB cable. This cable should have come as an accessory with your Nuvi 360.

Connect the cable betwen the two and you should see the a PC icon show up on your Nuvi and the Nuvi will show up in your Windows directory as a storage drive... usually drive "G".

The files have to be in MP3 format (.mp3 extension). You can right click on the MP3 file on your PC and select copy, then go to the Nuvi directory and paste it into the directory folder named "MP3" on your Nuvi.

Thats it.... now make sure you "SAFELY REMOVE" the drive in windows before you unplug the cable.

When you select the MP3 player on your Nuvi, select the browse button and you should find your MP3 files.

No Maps on My GARMIN nuvi 200W


I bought the nuvi 200w and when I registered the unit it said that there was an updated map available so I down loaded and installed it. When I turned the unit on, it said no detailed maps available and would not work. I called garmin and they said that to fix it I had to hook the nuvi up to my computer and start>my computer>nuvi>garmin there is a file called gmapprom.img (shows over 1,000,000 mb) delete this file. Open all programs>garmin>mapsource highlight the areas on the map that you want and click on the add to device icon. After doing this, my nuvi is working fine. The explanation was that the original file had files for Canada that were not unlocked. Try this and good luck!

Lost maps off garmin nuvi 660


Please delete any MP3 files or extra vehicle icons on your Nuvi. The map file is 1 GB in size. There is a possibility that your Nuvi's directory is corrupted and/or there are hidden garbage files on the directory that are taking up your storage space. You can look for these using windows explorer but don't delete anything if you don't know what you are doing.

Garmin Nuvi 205 keeps saying no maps available ???


This is easy. You have to run your software, select the maps tap and then transfer maps to the device. Chances are good you uploaded a 2009 map on top of the 2008 map. The updater doesn't delete maps.

Your unl file only has one key, you have two maps loaded. Simple go into the garmin directory and delete the map file and the mapsupp file. You can easily find them because they are greater than 500 mb.

Then run mapinstall (google for the file). This will install your most current map to the Nuvi. You are back in business.

I have a problem with Garmin 770 maps unlock


How to unlock this mapping to your Nuvi 700 series, if you get the error message “can’t unlock maps”
Please connect the Nuvi to the computer then follow the following steps:
1. Go to ‘My Computer’ and select your Nuvi.
2. Once you have selected the Nuvi go to the ‘Garmin’ folder.
3. Click options along the top toolbar of the open window, then select folder options.
Once the box appears, select the VIEW tab along the top and un-tick the ‘Hide extensions for known file types’, then click OK.


4. Once you are back in the Garmin window you will need to right click the window and
then choose NEW > Text Document:

5. Once you have the Text Document appear in the window you will need to name it:
gmapprom.unl (you may need to remove the .TXT extension).
6. Once the file has been created, right click on it and choose open. A window will pop
up asking you to choose the program to open the gmapprom.unl file, you will need to
choose NOTEPAD and make sure the box at the bottom that says to always use this
program for this file type is un-ticked and then click OK

7. You will then have an empty document open, in here you need to type your 25 character unlock code all in lowercase and without spaces or ‘-‘. After entering this,
save and close the document.
8. You can then unplug your unit and the mapping will be unlocked on the Nuvi. (Please note that if you have a Nuvi 770 then you will need to repeat this process again as you will have two unlock codes. You will need to name the second file

Garmin Nuvi 200 2009 Map Update


Here's what worked for me. Nuvi 200 brand new w/2008 trying to upgrade to 2009.
After registering and download the map 2009, I started the install. I go to a point where I was told I needed 37MB more room. I went thru windows explorer and looked in the Nuvi. I went into the language folder and moved all of the languages I didn't need to my hard drive. I then went into the HELP folder of the Nuvi and again removed the all of the languages I did not need. I then went back to the install program and hit retry. All good from there. I hope this helps.
