Welcome to, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

This happens when your garmin doesnt have enough room to hold the entire USA in its memory. To g et the west coast st ates, what you need to do is connect the garmin to a computer with garmin express, and then change to the map region which includes those western states. Heres how

  1. Connect a compatible Garmin device to the computer.
  2. Open Garmin Express.
  3. Select the Garmin device on the home page.
  4. Click Map Options
  5. Click Reinstall Map or Change Map1
    • Click Reinstall Map to reinstall the same map region
    • Click Change Map to choose a different map region
  6. Agree to the Terms and Conditions
  7. Click Continue

I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a 5 star rating clicked and submitted when you are satisfied.. I always answer follow up questions.
