Navionics card wont work


You most likely need to change the map data displayed.
The elite series won't change for you automatically. Lowrance Elite 7 HDI Hybrid Dual Imaging Fishfinder Chartplotter
here is a link to the elite 7 page where you can download a pdf owners manual.
go to the gps/map page on your unit. Find "chart data" on your menu.
select nation is as your chart data. Then you will be ableaving to see your map data.

No map data availble


Your Garmin GPS has an internal memory or an SD-card that contains an "operating system" and "map data".The operating system is like windows or Mac OSX. It contains the menu and everything the GPS displays. The "map data" is a digital roadmap the GPS uses to calculate your route. If the map data was on a SD-card that was inserted in your GPS, it could me that you lost the SD-card. That could be the reason your GPS can't find the map data. Sometimes it happens that when people connect their GPS to a computer to update the "operating system" of the GPS something goes wrong. For example, when you disconnect your GPS from the computer while the update software is still writing data to your device, the connection gets lost and you're left with corrupt files on the GPS. It could also be a defect in the internal memory of the GPS. I suggest you try to update the operating system with a program called "Garmin Express" (just google and easy find it). You need to connect the GPS to your computer with a USB cable. Then you can perform an update. I hope it helps to solve your problem. What you could also try is to soft reset your GPS. To do that, you need to remove the silver or blue frame around the screen of the GPS (it pops off). Behind this border there is a reset button.
If the map data is completely gone, and you don't have a backup there is only one solution: Buy the latest map for your GPS online and download it to your GPS. It's expensive. In that case it's better to buy a new device in a shop. Most new devices contain Lifetime online map updates (model name nuvi -then the number - LM or LMT) (LM= Lifetime Mapupdates T= Traffic information) Then you can update your map data every three months if you want.

I need help installing a map onto a gramin sat nav


No. They are refering to maps sent from the computer to the Garmin device. Maps are not transferred off the SD card to the unit. Simply insert the SD card into the device and the Garmin will read the maps from the card.
to double check follow these steps
  1. Power on the unit with the card in
  2. Press Tools
  3. Press Settings
  4. Press Map
  5. Press Info (or map info)
This page should list out both your UK and Ireland maps(old as dirt) and your new Benelux and France maps as well

"No Map Data Available" - Garmin Nuvi 350


This is because your map file has either been deleted or corrupted and needs to be replaced. Please see this link for more info. Too much info to copy & paste here:

I have accidentally formatted my Tomtom One(4N00.005) SD card without backing up all data.I copied all maps and other stuff from another Tomtom One to my computer's hard disk and then transferred all data...


You cannot take maps from one TomTom and put them on another TomTom. The maps are coded to that particular TomTom. It would seem the only option left to you is to purchase another map from TomTom.

Gpsmap 182c


My 182C developed the same problem. It appears to be a problem with reading data from the card. When I power up the unit, sometimes it will display "Reading Card" for a long time and no data will be read. I've found that if I open the latch and push in on the card as I press the power button, it will only then display the number of maps loaded. Sometimes less than other times. Most times a lot of data is not loaded from the card causing the problem frankcps describes and other problems, such as no data for tide stations, anchorage, etc. I tried cleaning the contacts on the data card & where it plugs in, but still continue to have the problem.

Tomtom one displays no maps found


The problem with that approach is that you cannot transfer maps from another device onto yours without product key activation codes. This is to prevent piracy or abuse of maps on individual devices.

Did you find a good solution?
