My garmin keeps saying no data available everytime you hit anything on the Where To screen. How do i fix that?

There's 3 possibilities;
1. The map is unselected (which is the most likely)
2. The map is locked or
3. The software is out of date and needs to be upgraded.

You'll find the solutions to 1 and 2 at There's more information there than you'll need so to select the map if it's unselected go to paragraph 5.

If the map is locked start at paragraph 2.

If the software needs updating download and install WEBUPDATER from to your computer.

Connect your satnav to your computer with the mini USB lead and run WEBUPDATER. It will check for updates and install them to your satnav.

I hope this solves your problem.

Hello how can I update my Carmin nuvi 660 and download the map of new zealand ? thank you

Details of how to update your garmin satnav are at

To get a new map of NZ you need to have your satnav registered. Details of how to do so are at the above link also. When you're registered go to
  • Click on the myGarmin tab
  • Log in using your username and password
  • Click on the myMaps tab
There you'll see the map installed on your satnav. On the left hand side of the screen you'll see in blue writing a link saying "Shop for new maps" and then on "View additional maps for this product"

Scroll down as far as the map of NZ and select it. Follow the prompts.
If the map you already have on your satnav is not NZ and you want to save that too it's unlikely that both will fit on your satnav. If this is the case follow the instructions, at the above link, under the heading If the map is too large to install on your satnav for downloading to your computer and installing from your computer to your memory card rather than the satnav. Be advised maps installed on memory cards will not always work on garmin nuvi satnavs particularly if the memory card is larger than 2 Gb. Please read the article at the link above before buying.

My maps are gone how do I fix it

The map may be unselected. To select it;
  • Press TOOLS (the spanner icon) in the bottom right corner of the WHERE TO and VIEW MAP screen
  • Press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings icon)
  • Press MAPS and then MAP INFO at the bottom of the screen
This should show you the maps installed on your satnav. There should be a tick beside the map name if it's selected. If not press the map name and the tick will appear. This should solve the problem.

If this does not solve the problem the map may be locked or deleted. If the map is locked it should say so at the map name. If there's no map name then the map may be deleted.

You can get details on how to unlock your map at

If the map has been deleted you may be able to download it again from the garmin website depending on how old it is. Generally you can download the map for about 6 months after it was first installed.
  • To download the map again go to
  • Click on the myGarmin tab at the top of the page.
  • If you haven't already registered your satnav do so on this page by clicking "Register your garmin product" and follow the prompts
  • When you're registered log in using your username and password
  • Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the page
  • Your satnav name will be on the left hand side of the page and your map name in the centre. On the right it will either say "No update available" or "Update available"
  • If there's an update available downloading and installing it will solve the problem but you'll have to pay for it. Alternatively click on where it says "Details" in blue under your map name
  • This brings you to a screen where, if the map is not too old, you get the option to download it again. Click on "Download again" and follow the prompts to reinstall it.

My garmin nuvi 1300 keeps saying "no map data available" I'm a truck driver and really need assistance asap..

There's a solution to your problem at

The article deals with all possible reasons for there being no map data available but if your satnav is working other than that it may be just that the map is not selected. If you can get into the menus first try selecting the map by
pressing TOOLS
then SETTINGS or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings menu
Press MAP and then at the bottom of the screen press MAP INFO
Your map name should be there and a box with a tick beside the name.
If the box is not ticked press on the map name and it will cause the tick to appear. This might solve the problem. If not the map is probably locked. You'll find details of how to unlock the map at the above link.

I went in and removed all my pictures from the unit and all languages except english. Now my map is gone, poi screen is blank and when I try to set a destination it only shows the interstate no city...

Check if your map is selected.
  • Press TOOLS the spanner icon on the WHERE TO and VIEW MAP page
  • Press SETTINGS the spanner icon (Or LOCALE on some models, the blue icon)
  • Press MAPS
  • Press MAP INFO on the bottom centre of the screen
Your map name should be there with a tick beside it. If the tick is not there press the map name and it will appear. This may solve the problem.

If the map is not there you'll need to download it again. If you've got a garmin account log into myGarmin. If not you'll need to register your satnav first. To register it
  • Connect the satnav to your computer and go to
  • Select your country from the dropdown list and click "Register your garmin device".
  • Follow the prompts.
  • You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe. You'll need them anytime you need to update your maps or solve problems in the future.
Once you've registered you'll be able to log into myGarmin. When you're logged in click on the myMaps tab. There you'll see the name of the map on your satnav. Under the map name you should see a link in small blue writing DETAILS.
Click on DETAILS and it should give you an option to download the map again. Download it to your computer or direct to the satnav and it should solve the problem. If you download to the computer use MAPINSTALL, which will be installed into a GARMIN folder in your programs list, to install the map to your satnav.

I've bought a Garmin Nuvi 215w. The gps does not display all the road names on the map. Is there any way i can update the firmware?

I don't think updating the firmware will solve the problem however if you want to try you can update the firmware by connecting your satnav to the computer and downloading webupdater from When you have it set up it will automatically check for the latest version of software for your satnav. I don't think that will solve your problem though. The satnav will only show road names that are on the map.

Before trying to update the software try this solution first. On the satnav press Tools, then Settings, then Map. Under Map Detail press whatever it says and you'll get a list of options. Press Most. This will show the most map details and will show any roadnames that are on the map.

My garming says no detailed maps found that support routing what can i do to fixed

Press Tools, then press Settings, then press Map, then press Map Info. There should be a tick beside the map name. If not press the map name and a tick will appear. The problem should then be solved.

If that doesn't solve the problem it may be because the map is locked. If so go to and if the satnav is registered click on My Garmin, then on Maps where you'll find the unlock code. If the satnav is not registered you'll need to connect it to the computer and register it first.

Software update cant be found for my medion p4410 can anyone help pls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you have gone to the manufacturers web site and have found no update for your unit then one is not available for it yet. Keep checking back about once a month and you will/might finally find one.
