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.

How do I get free maps for my Garmin nuvi 1490t?


The only way you can get free maps is if your unit is a 1490LMT which is Lifetime Maps and Traffic. You would need to register your unit at www.garmin.com. You do have lifetime traffic because you say your unit is a 1490T.

If you don't have a lifetime map subscription, you will have to buy a lifetime map subscription or purchase new maps when they are released. The lifetime map subscription will save you money in the long run.

I have 2010 maps on a SD card for my Nuvi. Does


If you already have a map on your unit, you will have both maps. You may have to enable the map on the SD card. At the main menu, press the wrench symbol, then the map icon and then "map info". You should see all of your maps that are available to your unit. Make sure that the square boxes next to each map are checked. Thats how you turn on/off (selct) each map. If the SD card map isn't working, make sure it has a unlock code assigned to the map or it won't work on your unit. Also, the map file name on an SD card is different than the name on your unit. - Jim

I HAVE A GARMIN NUVI 200 AND IT NEEDS TO HAVE THE MAPS UPDATED. IT IS 18 MONTHS OLD AND I CAN'T FIND A FREE DOWNLOAD FOR IT.


Map updates are free for units which are recently sold with the older maps and the new maps have been published, ie you just bought a unit in 2009 which still had 2008 maps on it after the 2009 maps had been released. Rather than recall all the units from the store shelves, they offer free updates on the mapping software. Continually updating the maps on 18 month old units is not free, there is an update charge. What is free from Garmin is the unit's software. Hope this clarifies your assumption.

I need to update map for MyGuide 3100


No myguide have gone bust! If the maps on your unit are on an sd card you can get torrents and install them on there. If the maps used to be on the unit itself you should use the map cd that came with it

Garmin nuvi says, "no detailed maps found to support routing."


I am very sorry to hear that you are having problems with the unit. You
may need to switch the unit on and press and hold the centre of the
screen until the message ?No detailed maps? message disappears.

If your map detail is missing, then the map information may have been
disabled. To check to see if the mapping has been disabled, follow the
steps below:

From the Where to? and View Map page, touch the Spanner icon, settings
(Tools).
Touch Map.
Touch Map Info.
The unit should display the name of the map that is loaded to the unit.
The box in front of the map name should have a tick in it. If it does
not, touch the box to place a tick in it.

Then please test by searching for an address.
