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
Tools;
Settings;
map;
mapinfo (at the bottom)

or
Settings;
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.

Garmin Nuvi 1450LMT, after entering a state, then attempting to "spell City" after entering city, and touching "done" unit indicates, "no matches found". For example, Minnesota, Minneapolis, unit...


Is the map turned on? At the main menu, press the system tools icon and press the map icon. Then press the map info button.

What does it say? Does a map show up and is there a checkmark in the box next to the map description? Also, if the map is for a certain area, say lower 49 states, SW, well you won't be able to find a city in the NE because the map is only showing a limited area. If you have ample memory on the unit or have a 2GB or larger SD card, installing the full US & Canada map is the way to go. Make sure the map installed on the unit covers where you are and where you may be going.

No Map Data Available on Garmin nuvi350


Hi,

I would suggest you reset the unit,if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, I think its out of date and needs to be updated. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Best regards

When I type in Ontario looking for province it comes up "no match found" so cannot proceed with address function.


Are you having any other trouble with the map -- weird display or stuff missing or error messages?

I ask because the data that should be appearing is part of the map database and I'm beginning to suspect corrupt files.

Did you recently update your firmware? Manually, or using [shudder] web updater

Check to see if your maps are checked off. Go to settings, Map, then press Map Info at the bottom of the screen. Make sure City Navigator North America NT v8 has a check mark on it.

Click on the wrench symbol, then the map icon and then "map info". Make sure your map is checked. If it's not, then your map is off. When its off you wont find anything.

if that doesnt help follow the below procedures...

1. Connect your GPS to a USB port on the computer.
2. Save the attached file to the Desktop and rename to “Super Ultimate Nuvi fix.zip”
3. (Unzipping the file) Right-click on the Super Ultimate Nuvi Fix.zip and choose “Open With” and click “Compressed (zipped) Folders”.
4. Drag both files (Map Fix.bat and driveletter.vbs) to the Desktop.
5. Close that window.
6. Double-click on the garmin_rmu_cnnant2010C.exe file and wait for it to extract.
7. When you see the "Welcome to the Garmin Map Update." screen, DON'T click next, Instead, double-click on the Map Fix.bat file.
8. Press Enter and wait for the program to prompt for information.
9. Enter “006-D0322-05” (without the quotes) and press Enter.
10. Press Enter.
11. Click Next on the "Welcome to the Garmin Map Update." screen.
12. When it is done building the map image, click Exit.
13. Press Enter. This will start copying the gmapprom.img file over to the nüvi. It will take 45 - 60 minutes to copy over.
14. When it says "The mapping on your device has now been updated." press Enter to close the window.
The desired map region should now be on your GPS.

if that doesnt help you will have to do a hard reset of ur unit....

good luck

regards

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.
