Gives bad directions

My unit has begun to give directions that do not make any snese. I have all of my waypoints. Maps are accurate. But driving directions are illogical. Can the basic software be reinstalled somehow? Thanks for any help.

Can you upgrade garmin satnav for free


If you're referring to the maps, then no. Not legally.

Maps cost a huge amount of money to create and update, and nobody gives that info away for free. The only exception is if you bought the unit brand new and register it within 90 days of first use, then any map updates released in that time will be free. There are other resources which claim to offer free compatible maps, but they are as up to date and accurate as you may expect free maps to be, so probably not as good as the maps you already have.

If you just want to update the points of interest then there are many free resources, just search "nuvi poi" on your preferred internet search engine.

Chat session ended by mistake. I need help with getting my Garmin GPSMAP 60 CX up and running. 1. I have successfully loaded Trip and Waypoint Manager on the computer 2. I have the unit hooked up to the...


You cannot load maps to the unit using the Trip and Waypoint Manager software. That software only does what it's called - it transfers routes and waypoints. To install maps onto your GPS, you will need Mapsource, which normally comes with the maps. Once it's installed on your PC, you hook up your GPS with a mini-USB cable, choose which maps you want transferred to the unit, and then the Mapsource software will knit the map segments together and transfer them over to the unit. Hope this helps.

My Garmin cannot find the lake house. Directions


You may need to update your maps. If they are up to date (2010) then its just bad data from Navteq. You can add the waypoint in your nuvi and custom name it which would provide better results.

How to delete all waypoints & maps on GPS Garminmap 60csx


Create a new file in Mapsource, with one anonymous waypoint, and one map tile and send to unit. It will then replace what is existing on the unit at present. Otherwise, you'll have to delete the waypoints one by one, but there is no way of deleting the maps (unless they are stored on the Micro SD chip - in that case, just reformat the chip).

Can i upload any type of digital maps to the GPS


Units that provide fullmapping capability cannot use the standard file formats used by thedigital map publishers for on-screen mapping and instead use in-builtvector maps (base map data). These units will generally allowadditional maps to be uploaded but these are only available from themanufacturer, in a proprietary specific file format, so there is thepotential for some lack of flexibility when choosing to buy a mappingGPS unit. Garmin and Magellan are the two major manufacturers whosemapping GPS unitsuse proprietary only maps. Having said all this however, you can stilluse other non-proprietary digital maps but not for the purpose ofloading the map to the screen, but for the transfer of attributes toyour GPS (eg. waypoint file). To transfer waypoints and other datafiles to your GPS you will require mapping software.

SD Card slot Garmin nuvii 260


I have found that waypoints, routes and directions work only when I load it on the unit itself as opposed to the SD card. The SD card works more like an expansion slot for pictures or maps.

When you open up Mapsource you'll see the map on the right and the pane on the left, above the pane there are 4 tabs (Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks). As you select a map or create a waypoint, route or track. It will put a number in parenthesis which will increase in numbers as you add an item corresponding to each category, for example if you create a waypoint. So once you have done that, click on the TRANSFER tab in the Menu selection bar and choose SEND TO DEVICE. A window will pop up that will say...Device: with a drop down menu if your Garmin unit has an SD card in it, if not it will just show the Garmin unit. Then right below that there will be a section that says WHAT TO SEND with 4 check boxes that will say Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks. Make sure that you have selected the Garmin unit, not the SD, and the waypoints, routes or tracks you want to send. I hope this solves your problem or at least points you in the right direction...

I Would like to update my Garminc330. I have a glitch in the map (tells me address doesnot exist, when I know it does)


Garmin puts out map updates on a regular basis. You must purchase these. The GPS comes loaded with maps that are current as of the date of production of the unit. It cannot "know" when new roads are paved and new subdivision are created without being "told" via map updates. The unit knows where it is in relation to the maps loaded on it by receiving signals from the GPS satellites in orbit. If things change, the maps must be changed in order for the unit to give you correct directions.

Can not get route information desoite having had it programmed into garmin


Try doing a hard reset. Hold down the back button (leftside), the thumbwheel, and then the power button. This will reset all setting back to factory default. You will lose any custom setting, recent find and waypoints.
