SOURCE: Have accidently set up new

  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon at the bottom right corner of the screen showing WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) I know it'll take a bit of trial and error to find it in Polish.
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (The blue icon) on models that don't have a settings icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips icon)
  • This will bring you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
  • Press VOICE and select the voice of a person from an English speaking country
  • Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English
This should solve your problem

You will need to send it in to Garmin along with a copy of your receipt to prove ownership, and they will reload the software and maps. There may be a charge for this service.

Have accidently wiped mapping from garmin sat nav

I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200.

The error message you are receiving about maps is actually a sign of a firmware corruption problem, which just happens from time to time with electronic devices. Updating the firmware of your nuvi will replace the corrupt firmware.

These are the steps to take to update your Nuvi 200:

Download and then run Garmin 200 WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software. Occasionally a nuvi 200 will also need a Hard Reset (preceded by a favorites backup) to bring it back to 100% operation.

I hope that helps.

Can I save a copy of my map from my Garmin Nuvi 660 to my computer?

Yes you can. The file name is "gmapprom.img" and is located in the "Garmin" directory. It will take about 45 minutes to an hour to copy it to your PC and the same amout of time to go back to your Nuvi should you accidently erase it on your Nuvi. The file is nearly 1 GB in size.

It is always a good idea to backup all of your files from your Nuvi.

No voice to Garmin Nuvi 660

In case it is a software problem try this and see if it will fix it......follow these steps.
1. Power off the unit.
2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).
3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to try recover from the problem.
