There are a few things you can do. Right now it sounds like you over wrote your original maps that came with the unit. Connect it via USB, it should come up with a drive letter or the name GARMIN. Open that drive, double click on the GARMIN folder, and in the folder, there should be a file called gmapprom.img. Change the name to gmapsupp.img and try that.

I purchased Garmin1490t and it says "Cannot unlock maps" / 'No maps Found" Please help


If your Nüvi keep displaying the maps are locked, you will need to erase a file from the units memory. Connect your GPS system to your computer; go to start then 'My Computer', and double click on your device file (mass storage system), there you will see a folder named 'Garmin'.

In this folder are several different files, look for file named gmapsupp.img. Right hand click on this file and delete as this file is causing the maps to lock.

Other choice, could be one read at No Detailed Maps Found That Support Routing

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

I tried to update my new Garmin Nuvi 255w. It now reads as follows, No detail maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot be used without them. I have a ABI and to help me even to get home is hard....


There are 2 possible reasons for this. The most likely is that the map is not selected. Go to Tools, Settings, Map and press Map Info. Is the map ticked. If not press it and it will tick. The map should then work.

The other reason is that the map may be locked. The instructions for unlocking the map are at http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/searchsupport?search_key=nuvi%20770

Is there any updated map for streetpilot 2620 since 2008?


Yes. There is one more mapset and then there will be no more for us using the StreetPilot 2620. You are looking for the disc set North American Navigator 2009. Make sure you do not purchase the NT version. I found the item on EBAY for $81and purchased it and it worked just fine. The 2009 is the last compatible map set that Garmin released for the 2620. Be certain that what you purchase includes that unlock key otherwise you will spend another $75 on that at the Garmin Unlock Site.

Here is the link that is good for a few more days, however, may relist it. The seller is yumelectronics and the search term is 2009 City Navigator.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390193775928

Here is the search for EBAY:
http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=city+navigator+2009

Here is the item on Garmin's site:
https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=8465

Listed as:
City Navigator® North America This product has been discontinued but is still available for purchase.

It is $99.99.

Good luck, and let me know if you have any other questions.

Garmin Nuvi 205 can't unlock maps


First, check to make sure the map file is there. The file name is gmapprom.img. It's located in the Garmin directory. It should be 1GB in size. To do this you need to connect the Nuvi to a PC with a USB cable.

Next, please tell me what year of map you have on your unit, 2009, 2010, etc.

Them, email me your units internal serial number. Its a 10 digit number (not the number on the outside). The number starts with a "3" and can be found by pressing the tools button, then system and then "about".

Please email me at sharcnet-usa AT sharc DOT NET

Error when downloading map updates


Try using a different website where you can download the maps for free. These should work. If they don't, you might need a software update from the same web site before getting more maps: www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00401-20

Garmin 600/650


Most likely you had the 2007 or 2008 maps. Click on the wrench icon, then the maps symbol and then the word "info" or "about" and you should see the current map revision. If you updated it recently, it should now show 2009.
