Thank you for using Just Answer my name is Carl and I will help with your question.

How did you delete the maps if you could let me know how it was done I might be able to suggest a recovery method.

You can also download maps for your garmin here these are not garmin maps but a free alternative.

I thought I was deleting from another drive not the Garmin and had pressed the delete button for Garmin by mistake.

Have you had a look in recycle bin for your map files?

I would advise trying this program on the garmin and see if it recovers the files.
