Ok so i have pressed the middle of the screen the message no detailed maps that support routing has gone have gone into address it now says no data available and still no maps

The original message of "No detailed maps to support routing" is typically caused by a missing or corrupted map file. It can also be caused by not having the proper map unlock key installed on the unit.

If that problem has been resolved and you can't obtain an address when setting a route, make sure that the map is turned on.

Go to settings, select the map icon and then the map info button. Make sure there is a check mark in the square next to the text that lists the map that you have installed on the unit.

If the map info button is grayed out, then you still have a map issue.

If the square does not have a check mark in it, press the square to place a check mark in the square. This will activate the map.

With this unit, you can put several maps on it and you can select which map will be active or inactive with the check mark.

Gps nuvi it alays say no match found

Every Garmin Nuvi has a map info screen. check to make sure your Garmin has maps
usually that screen is
mapinfo (at the bottom)

Map and Vehicle;
My Maps;

If it is greyed out or a blank screen then your garmin is missing its maps. otherwise, make sure the maps are checked and make sure you are searching in the right area. by default the Garmin will search within 50 miles of you.

Click on address and it just beeps and stays on the same screen

This is an indication that there is a problem with the map. The map contains all of the data regarding streets and points of interest. You can confirm this by going to the map screen and pressing the map info button. If the map info button is grayed out or there is no map listed on this screen or you see a (c) copyright symbol then there is a problem with your map. Please see this link regarding missing maps and how to get this problem resolved.

No roads are not coming up when I try to type them in and it will not let me type in any address...

First, make sure that your map is turned on. Go into settings and select the map icon. Then select the map info button. Make sure that a map is listed on this screen. There should be a check mark in a square next to the map listed. If the check mark is missing, touch the square and place a check mark in the square. If the map is missing, you will not be able to enter in any addresses or search for any points of interest. If you don't see a map listed on the map info screen, then the map is missing and you will need to replace it. The map file name is gmapprom.img and should be on the unit, usually in the folder named Garmin on the units flash drive. If you connect a USB cable between the GPS and a PC, look to see if you can find that file.

Won't accept address information from user

Check in Settings -> Map -> Map Info to see which map(s) currently are installed, perhaps only a small part of the region got installed. When updating map material the unit will erase all old map material from the unit, so if you had a larger area than the one you updated to, then only the newer smaller area would be installed, and thus searchable.
If you have MapSource on your PC and the new map update installed there too, you can try to search for the same address there and see if you're able to find the address then.

Cannot insert addresses!

Got it!! For those getting the "No Matches Found" headache. Here's the solution:1. Go to "Settings" 2. Go to "Map" 3. Go to "Map Info" 4. MAKE SURE that "City Navigator North America NT 2008" is CHECKED. It fixed the problem for me. Hopefully it will fix yours all the same. God Bless.
