You'll have to load the North American maps into the unit. Go to and register your unit with the site. You will then be able to purchase the north american maps and download to your unit using the Garmin updater on the site. The maps are all serialized to work with each unit ID, so a North American map on another user's Garmin will not work on yours (it is Garmin's proprietary copy protection system).

Just downloaded the latest update. After turning it back on, unit says "No Available Maps" Prior to update the unit worked perfect.

Go into the menu, look for the map set under settings. select the one you just downloaded or whichever is the newest map.

Follow this to get there.

Tools----Settings-----Map------Map Info (check it off to use map)

Waiting for GPS comes up when I try to get directions, it never loads

what are you using for gps? ovi maps? garmin? google maps?

i suggest installing google maps to see if your gps is working alright.

then check in phone settings to ensure that gps positioning method is enabled for 'built-in gps' and 'assisted gps', thereafter check positioning server is set to ''.

normal lock time is around 5-30seconds with E71 GPS with A-GPS on; anything more than that i'd attribute it to a faulty built-in gps unit.

let me know if it works.
