How do I install maps on my GPS?


First you need to have Mapinstall app on your computer

Once MapInstall is installed, to load maps:
  1. Connect the Garmin device to the computer
  2. Open the MapInstall program
    • MapInstall appears in the Start menu or Start screen on Windows
    • MapInstall appears in the Applications folder on a Mac
  3. Select the device or SD card
    • If all compatible map products installed on the computer will fit completely on the selected device, MapInstall will give options to Send Maps (Mac)/Continue (Windows) or Customize
      • Send Maps/Continue will send all the maps that will fit on the device
      • Customize will allow the selection of individual map products
      • Advanced/Partial Install will allow sections of the map products to be sent without sending the whole map product
    • If all map products installed on the computer will not fit completely on the selected device, MapInstall will give the option to Continue
      • This will allow the selection of individual map products
      • Advanced/Partial Install will allow the selection of individual sections of the map products
    • If loading the map to a SD card or an older Garmin device, MapInstall will give the option to Continue
      • MapInstall will allow the selection of individual sections of the map products - similar to the Advanced/Partial Install option
  4. Click Send Maps (Mac) / Continue (Windows)
  5. Click Confirm (Mac) / Install (Windows)
  6. Click Done (Mac) / Finish (Windows)1

Good day My Garmin doesn't have maps anymore is there a way i can update it?


The maps are probably there but not selected. TO select the aps
  • Press TOOLS
  • Press SETTINGS
  • Press MAPS
The name of your map should appear with a tick beside it. If there's no tick the map is not selected. Press the map name and the tick will appear. THis should solve the problem. IF not the map may be locked. You can find detailsof how to unlock your maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing
There may be more information there than you need so you can start at paragraph 2.

You can find information on updating your maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

I recently purchased the Nuvi260 lifetime map update - all maps don't fit on the nuvi. I added a 4GB Sandisk and installed it in the expansion slot. The map updater doesn't allow me to use the...


To use the extra SDCARD storage for your map should work. It's a bit of a complicated area to pull this through and requires quite a bit of reading to get it done.

Basically the install can be done from a PC / Mac with the Garmin Maps installed on there. From the Mac/PC it's installed on the SDCARD in your NUVI.

Below you find the link to Garmin's forum - read the posting where it says "Reply from Garmin International". It contains a PDF with all instructions in there. Register at Garmin's forum to download the PDF - this is the same Username/Password as used with registering the Nuvi at Mygarmin.com.

Map Install to SD-card

As an extra remark - please note that installing Garmin Maps on a PC for use with Mapsource requires at least 5Gb of disk space of the C-drive. When this is a problem - here's a way around clearing disk space on a PC for Garmin Map install.

Wanting to buy gps was thinking of the 1350 ? series...do they have free amp upgrades for NZ and Australia can you have loaded multiple countires at once...


The basic 1350 model doesn't have free map updates but the 1350LMT model does. LMT stands for lifetime map and traffic updates but of course you're pay extra for the LMT models. Note lifetime means the lifetime of the satnav not your life. It comes with maps of Australia and NZ when bought in one of these countries. If you want more than these maps you'll need to store them on a memory card. You'll have to download them to your computer and then install them to a memory card. You'll find details of how to do this at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps which tells you how to update your maps including how to set up a map on a memory card. I hope this answers your question.

When I insert the Micro SD into the Garmin, the maps are not being read off of the card. When I try to plot a coarse it states "No Maps" loaded.


  • Press TOOLS
  • Press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on some models that don't have a settings icon)
  • Press MAPS
  • At the bottom of the screen press MAP INFO
Your map names should be shown with a tick beside them. If the maps aren't loaded the tick is probably missing. Press the map name and the tick will appear. The map is now selected and should load.

HOW DO YOU LOAD MAPS TO THE GPS UNIT?


You will need to load the MapSource software on your PC then load the maps into MapSource. After the maps are loaded and unlocked you can plug your GPS into your PC with the USB cable and load the maps.

Hope this Helps.

GO720 Map Update problem


It appears that this problem was a case of non-backwards compatability with maps to application versions. My gps was on v8.02 application which was not compatable with the v8.15 series of maps. I had to remove ALL the software off the gps, allow it to rebuild using TomTom Home up to v8.300 and then re-load the v8.15 maps. This then stopped my older maps from working.......
I can see this working in a commercial sense; ie every time there is a gps version update everyone will need to purchase new maps, but jeez it's bloody frustrating!!

Loading Topo maps...210 says invalid base map??


To get the base map and to get your unit functioning again:
Install the firmware again:

Go to: http://www.magellangps.com/support/product.asp?prodid=1114

Or, if this doesn´t work, go to www.magellangps.com, click on"support", click on "legacy products" (left) and click on "eXplorist210 Europe" (do NOT click on "eXplorist 210 North America")

On this page click under Updates/Upgrades on "version 2.57", and follow the instructions. You will have to register your GPS, register it under a European country.

After you have installed the firmware you will have the basemap and some new windows on the GPS. Good luck and enjoy!

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.
