When you interrupted the download you corrupted it. Restart the install from the beginning and complete it and it should be fine.

How do i reset my garmin nuvi 200w satnav it says no detailed maps found how can i reinstall them


Locate the reset button, located on the back of the device, in the lower left corner. Remove the sticker covering the button, and use a straightened paper clip to depress the tab.

To reinstall maps

Connect your Garmin Nuvi to your computer via USB cable. You can only update the maps through connecting to your computer.

Open the "myGarmin" website and sign in with your Garmin account. Make sure to sign in with the account that you've purchased the map updates on.

heres a link to the site;


http://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/login.htm.

Click the "myMaps" tab on the myGamrin dashboard. This will load a list of all of your purchased map upgrades.

Click the drop-down menu in the "Recent Map Purchases" section. Select your Garmin Nuvi from the list of devices.

Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin when prompted. This is required in order for the Garmin website to transfer the map files to your Gamrin software on your computer.

Download and install Garmin Express. This is the program that allows your computer to interact with your Garmin Nuvi.

Register your device in Garmin Express. If you haven't already registered your device, you'll be prompted to when you start Garmin Express. You'll need to register in order to update the maps.

Click the "Updates" tab in Garmin Express. This will show all of the available updates for your Nuvi, including the new map update you just purchased.

Click the "Show Details" option next to your Map Update. Click the "Install" button that appears. You will need to accept the agreement before the update installs.

Wait for the maps to download and install. Once you agree to the terms, the map update will begin downloading to Garmin Express, and will then be transferred to your Nuvi. This will likely take several minutes to complete.

Close Garmin Express and unplug the Nuvi when the update is complete. The Nuvi will reboot and begin installing the updated software on the device. This may take another couple of minutes.

If you weren't automatically prompted to install Garmin Express, you can download it from

When trying to put in an address the Garmin asks me for a country and then does not accept it after typing in the first letter. The other functions appear to be ok.


Hello

you need to update your map

Purchase your map updates (if necessary). You can purchase map updates for your Garmin Nuvi from the Garmin website. There are two basic options: a lifetime purchase or a one-time upgrade. The lifetime purchase gives you access to any new updates for the life of your device, while the one-time upgrade will provide you with the latest current maps, but you'll need to purchase again if you want to upgrade again later.

Make sure to log in with your myGarmin account before purchasing the map upgrade.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi to your computer via USB cable.

Open the "myGarmin" website and sign in with your Garmin account. Make sure to sign in with the account that you've purchased the map updates on.

Click the "myMaps" tab on the myGamrin dashboard. This will load a list of all of your purchased map upgrades.

Click the drop-down menu in the "Recent Map Purchases" section. Select your Garmin Nuvi from the list of devices.

Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin when prompted. This is required in order for the Garmin website to transfer the map files to your Gamrin software on your computer.

Download and install Garmin Express. This is the program that allows your computer to interact with your Garmin Nuvi.

Trying to connect to garmin.com/us


The GPS itself will not connect to anything - you need to connect it to a computer (that is connected to the internet) via USB cable and then run Garmin Express software from Garmin. The Garmin Express software will alllow you to update maps, firmware and more. The Garmin POI Loader software allows the transfer of customized POI's (Points of Interest) such as geocaches, etc. Check the links below for these offerings.

Garmin Nuvi 1350LMT Nuvi 1350 W map update error


Run the Garmin WebUpdater once more and apply any updates. Consider downloading and installing the lifetime map update to the computer and then use the Garmin Mapquest or Basecamp computer program to send the map data to the nuvi. Overall, it takes a little longer, but is better than trying to download directly to the GPS itself. If you're not having luck, it will probably be wise to contact Garmin Tech Support. It would be wise to mention the funky "once / month" GPS reboot issue with Garmin at this time too.

My gps172c fails to receive any sats...same problem last year,boat laid up over winter and in spring when set switched on no sats picked up .Garmin sent me software update and problem solved. Unfortunately...


Similar problem with a Garmin finding current position taking very long time every spring after boat being laid up in winter.

See page 4 and 5 to speed up the process.

When Garmin does a power-up the current version is revealed during the boot. This will ID the update!

The at home(current position) delay maybe due to satellite re-position during the winter and has been the only problem. Once acquired have little or no problem rest of season.

See page 6 on link manual where you can observe the satellite acquisition. During the initial acquisition process it seems to start over many times and eventually locks them in one at a time!

Garmin 545s : The unit powers up, the keys are illuninated, however, the display creen is blank (black no image). The unit beeps when I push the + and - keys and menue keys, but no display?


I recommend upgrading the system software of your Garmin 545s. There may not be physical damage to your unit, and it may be completely revitalized by replacing the GPSMAP software with the latest version 5.30 (as of January 7, 2010).

  1. Click on "Download" and choose to save the file to your computer.
  2. Choose a location where you can easily find the file, such as the 'My Documents' folder or 'C:\'.
  3. Once the download is complete, go to the location where you saved the file.
  4. Double-click on the downloaded file. This will automatically extract the files to C:\Garmin and run a program to transfer the software update to an SD card.
I hope that helps.

Blank Screen on Garmin E-Trex Vista


The problem is that your software version needs updating. A recently added satellite creates a glitch in the older software. Go to the Garmin website, load WebUpdater if you haven't already done so, and the updated version (3.8) will automatically install to your Garmin unit. I had the same symptoms, they have now disappeared and my Etrex Vista is back to normal.

Garmin streetpilot c550 recharge


Let it sit without plugging it in for 24 to 48 hours. After that, plug it in to the computer with the USB cable. If it doesn't power on in less than 5 seconds, it may need to sit without power more. After you get it to turn on this way, go to garmin.com and download the WebUpdater. This program can help you update the software for your c550.

These steps worked for me and I haven't had any problems since. I hope it helps you.
