It sound like someone has "unticked" maps go to settings then maps and map info and look for the screen that says city navigator, and tick box that should work unless someone has attached to pc and wiped maps

After reading all the bad stuff, I called Garmin and easy fix. Just go to Garmin.com., log in, maps, download maps, reinstall the latest maps. So answer to problem is just to reinstall the latest map. There is nothing wrong with software, the maps just didn't install right the first time. FYI. called Garmin right at 8AM CST & they answered & got someone right away. No wait at all.

My garmin nuvi 1300 says "no map data available".


This means is that the map file inside your Nuvi 350 is corrupted and the device can not read it anymore. We will need to update your map by plugging it into the computer. First thing you should know, with this problem that you are encountering most likely you will will need to send the unit back to Garmin to reload the map data onto the device, but I am going to try a few things with you to try to get it functioning again ok?

First thing to try is go to this webpage: Garman Map Updater, click on the "Check for updates" It will bring you to a new page, where you might need to install a plug in. It is okay to install the plug in and is nessesary.

If a map update is found you should be able to follow the instructions to update your map. Next I would like you to download "webUpdater" which updates the actual software on your device.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

My garmin nuvi 1300 keeps saying "no map data available" I'm a truck driver and really need assistance asap..


There's a solution to your problem at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

The article deals with all possible reasons for there being no map data available but if your satnav is working other than that it may be just that the map is not selected. If you can get into the menus first try selecting the map by
pressing TOOLS
then SETTINGS or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings menu
Press MAP and then at the bottom of the screen press MAP INFO
Your map name should be there and a box with a tick beside the name.
If the box is not ticked press on the map name and it will cause the tick to appear. This might solve the problem. If not the map is probably locked. You'll find details of how to unlock the map at the above link.

GPS was working fine. Stopped and turned off car....


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
