Hi , I am Tech Michael an expert in this field and I will be assisting you today. I am a Master Technician that's dedicated to giving you the best Answer possible.

If you are new to the site, this is briefly how it works:

1. We may need some back and forth to exchange information (if needed) and there is no extra cost for replying.

2. I will give you the best possible Answer for your problem without the ability of actually being present with you.

The better you describe the problem, the quicker I can help ;-)

3. Remember to leave a Positive Rating ,it doesn't cost anything additional to rate kindly;-)

I am only credited for my time and expertise if you rate kindly.

This Nuvi issue is because of its age. unfortunately they have very little support for this one because most of these units have been replaced by a newer model. I know its frustrating but they no longer have most of the map data for this one:-(

The new ones would cost you less than you paid for that one and will have way more features and an be much more up to date and fully supported. Its really just to old.

I wish i had better news for you but you can get a new GPS from Best Buy, I would go with another Garmin, any one that you like;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly.

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.
