What model is it? If you have a 2720 or 2730, and the original DVD with unlock code, run that on your PC. When asked, enter the unlock code into the program. Select all the maps by dragging the mouse across all of the US (hold down the left mouse botton). All the highlighted should turn "pink". Once selected, click on SEND TO UNIT and wait. This process can take some time. Once there, you shouldn't have a problem.

How do I delete maps from Garmin Nuvi 765


Connect the Nuvi to the PC with the supplied USB cable. After about a minute, the computer should recognize the Nuvi under Windows and assign it a drive letter. Double-click on the drive letter and view the directory in the Nuvi. Look for a subdirectory labeled "Garmin". Double click on the Garmin subdirectory. Look for the file named "gmapprom.img". This is the map file. This will be a very large file, around 1GB. I would suggest making a backup of this file on your PC in case a future map upgrade fails. Once the file is backed up you can go ahead and delete it. You have now freed up memory for a new map. You can also delete unused voices in the voice subdirectory. to free up additional memory.

Hello,

When reinstalling the maps to the unit, use the program Map Install from garmin. If you did and still cant find your maps, call garmin back and have them remotely access your PC. They will be able to fix your issue.

Cannot unlock the maps in my garminedge 705. When i turn unit on message comes up cannot unlock maps


Information on unlocking garmin maps can be found at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

There's more information there than you need since the article is about garmin nuvi satnavs that display a message "No detailed maps found that support routing" but part of the article deals with locked maps. The principle is the same for the garmin Edge but you'll need to skip to the part that deals with unlocking maps.

Cant get any maps on the device It keeps saying drive to the highlighted route, but there are no maps to drive to All maps have been deleted.


It's most likely that the maps may have become unselected rather than deleted.
  • Press TOOLs
  • Then press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on some models)
  • Press MAP
  • Press MAP INFO on bottom of screen
The map name should be displayed and should have a tick beside it. If not press the map name to select it. This should solve your problem.
If this does not solve the problem it's likely that the map has been corrupted or deleted. If this is the case you'll need to go to www.garmin.com to buy a new map. Details of how to do this are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

Garmin C510 wont install download Europe maps to Unit


Take a look at the Garmin support page - there is a Question " Why do I get a not enough space message on my Nuvi2xx when trying to update my mapping?"
It tells you how to remove the unused voice files to free up space.
I have a Nuvi 255WT and deleting the voice files alone was not enough, so I set about removing a lot of other stuff *** NOTE THAT IF YOU FOLLOW WHAT I DID, DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK **** it worked for me but there is always the risk of deleting a file that the device needs.
Also I was stupid and didn't try and save the files to a directory on my MAC before deleting them, from the satnav - worth a try so that if you can do that you have a chance of recovering one that you delete if you want it back.
First I also removed the un-needed text files - leaving only the 3 British-English files
Then I removed all of the POI files that were clearly examples/samples
Then I removed all of the Vehicle files except the one I was using
Then I removed all of the large ExtData files - now that was the one that caused me the most worry as I wasn't certain what they were there for!
This gave me a bit over 140Mbyte of free space which was enough to install the 2010 update for all of Europe.
Now I don't know whether the C510 has the same amount/less/more memory than the 255WT - so this may or may not work for you.
I didn't have an SD card available, which is why I went this far. I am going to get one and see if I can find out how to load the maps onto that.
cheers - Jeremy
