GPS Repair Problems? Ask a GPS Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,
I'm Greg and will do my best to assist you today.
Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any issue you are having with your device.
To help you with this issue, may I ask:
1) When did this "update" take place, and was this issue noticed ONLY after the update?
2) Did you see ANY "notices" during the update - about limited memory space for the updates?
Please use the REPLY box below.IMPORTANT NOTE: If you see ANY requests for "additional services" - such as a phone call - please understand that these are sent BY THE SITE AUTOMATICALLY (and not me), and I am NOT available by phone at the moment. Feel free to DECLINE (close) any such offers, and continue in this text/chat form.
OK - can you check the "Map Info" screen and tell me EXACTLY what you see there - including ALL lines of text and any icons you see?
To get to the Map Info screen, start at the main screen and touch Tools, then Settings, then Map, then Map Info.
May I ask a different question:
Do you have or ever have installed a memory card in the device - to store the larger map files?
I only ask because this "sounds like" the device MAY be running low on internal memory space, and you have a "subset" of maps installed now - which may not include the DETAILED maps of Michigan.
NOTE: This IS a "common problem" - as the detailed map files sent in an update GROWN in size for each release.
The solution IF the device is running low on memory is to purchase and installed a memory card (microSD I believe) of about 8GB capacity. That should be enough memory to hold all the maps you will need for some time.
NOTE: 8GB microSD cards are getting "hard to find" at local stores, so let me give you a reference to where you can get them online - for a reasonable price.

And yes, you will need to run the update again - once the microSD card is installed. The update program SHOULD detect that the card is installed and will load ALL maps available onto the card (assuming ALL of the US states or North America).
Please let me know what you find.
