accidentally deleted garmin nivi original road map
« on: March 19, 2016, 02:48:16 PM »
I accidentally removed the original garmin nivi road map layer. How do I reinstall this map. Garmin Express will not even access the gps because of the missing map. I can't seem to find the deleted file on the computer either. Call Garmin??

If you made a backup, you could re-load it. However if the computer doesn't even recognize the GPS, that is a bigger problem. None of this helps if you didn't do a backup.

I would call Garmin and see what they say. If they GPS is out of warranty, they still might help. If it's old, then their idea of "help" might only be to offer you a discount on a new model though.

If you had lifetime maps though, there should be a way to re-install them, as long as the gps is being recognized on your computer. For more help, you really should ask this sort of question in a Nuvi specific forum, such as http://forums.gpsreview.net/categories/garmin-auto-forum-garmin-nuvi-forum or http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=172

I did get it figured out. There was an update to the Garmin Express and the old version was locked up. Uploaded the new version and then the GPS was recognized and was able to replace the lost map. THANKS
