Hi and thank you for choosing Just Answer.
I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
Please be patient as these are technical questions that may require a bit of conversation to solve. Also remember to be detailed in your description of the problem. That will help me make a diagnosis quickly for you.
How old is your Garmin?
Also what site did you use to download the maps from?
And did the Garmin say the download was successful?
Thank you
Tech Michael
