There are 2 possibilities; Either the map has become unselected, which is most likely,or the map is locked. You can find solutions to both these problems at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

There may be more information there than you need so to find how to select an unselected map go to paragraph 5. To unlock your map start at paragraph 2.

No Map Data Available


You map may of been turned off. If so. Go into your Tools menu. Then Settings. Then Map. Then Choose Map Info. Make sure that there is a check mark beside the map name. If there is no map listed you should contact Garmin for assistance. www.garmin.com

No data available and no maps downloaded


it may just be that the maps are deselected. to correct this go into the tools/settings/map and then at the bottom of the screen in the middle you will see map info tap that and then at the next screen it will show you the maps which are installed if there are any without ticks just tap the box. tap ok and try again if. if there are no map choices then you will need to reinstall the maps on your unit

Map data availability


"I tried to load the new 2008 City Navigator but the update was interrupted."

You deleted your previous maps, therefore there are no maps on the unit. Try reloading the maps again and this time let it continue all the way to the end. It will take a couple of hours depending on loading all maps or only certain states.
