Have you checked to make sure the maps are enabled?

Sorry Freddy I missed this question.

unfortunately this old duffer is not clever enough to know if the maps are


No problem, to check that follow these steps:

Touch Tools
Skip this step on some devices

Touch Settings
Touch Map or myMaps
Touch Map & Vehicle before this step on some models

Touch Info or Map Info
Skip this step on some devices

Select the checkbox next to the maps to be enabled on the device

Greetings Freddy.

I dealt with your questions as requested. When I activated Info the following came on screen:- CN Europe NTU 2015.10 (1) Western Europe.

I then went to address when on screen "map data not available"so all is not right yet !

I will not be available until Tuesday next week.

Kind regards George

In order to go further we need your unlock code, to get that follow these steps:

Log into your myGarmin account at
Click on the myMaps tab
Click on the Details link next to your device
Locate the most current unlock code for your device underneath the Installed Maps heading

Let me know once you have that so we can continue, I will also need to know which version of windows or Mac is on the computer you are going to connect it to.

Freddy is a very helpful chap and it has been a pleasure doing business with him.

As it happens I have no need to rectify the problem with my sat nav.My grandson has given me a new and up to date model so, i will not need your excellent service again ( I hope ) .

Kind regards and best wishes,
