Your Garmin should have maps factory installed that load when you turn it on. If you want to update the maps you can 1) take the unit to a Garmin dealer to get updated maps or 2) Connect your unit to PC or laptop with internet through a usb cable and go online to Garmin.com. You must install a small program in the computer- Garmin Communicator - so your unit can communicate with the website. Go to Map Updates and download the update into your gps. You can update one time each year. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to load maps from google to garmin

This solution works for more than the 760. i think it will work for all 6xx and 7xx series.
a simple solution to convert Google maps to Garmin routes and is found here:
http://www.elsewhere.org/journal/gmaptogpx/

In essence, you create your route in Google maps and then click the recommended url bookmark.

Save the GPX file to the Garmin device and from "My Data" (under Tools) convert the file to a route. You are done.
hope this helps pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa thanks

SOURCE: garmin 765 turns on and sais loading maps then

I've had this issue on my Nuvi 1300, where holding the power button for 10-15 seconds would restart the unit, but it would freeze at the "loading maps." part. I ended up plugging the unit into my PC, which started it for purposes of data transfer. I then disconnected it from the PC and it restarted properly.
Try that out and see if you have any better luck.

SOURCE: the garmin 2620 will not load maps

You are caught in a loop most likely caused by a failed microdrive. Search Garmin 2620 cornice for a thread that is likely to provide the information about the failure you are experiencing. In short, if it is the Cornice drive that has failed you will find it very difficult to repair, if not impossible depending on your level of expertise and ability to find a used part for repair as the drives needed are no longer manufactured or readily available.

Garmin 1450 won't pick up states in gps


Make sure you didn't just install a portion of the maps. try re-Loading the maps from the Garmin Express program, then check the map info screen by pressing Tools>Settings>Map> Map Info
it should say something like CN North America NT 2015.10, then all, or lower 49 or lower 49 NE (north east) etc

Hello,

When reinstalling the maps to the unit, use the program Map Install from garmin. If you did and still cant find your maps, call garmin back and have them remotely access your PC. They will be able to fix your issue.

Hope this helps!

How to install map to garmin nuvi 205w

Sorry, no free maps. I know I've tried. You either live with the old map or buy the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOUR Garmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.
