Customer Question
I have a nuvi 3670...
I have a nuvi 3670 the gps is not recognizing the map and the correct route does not appear
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: When I put destination in the gps shows it is calculating route. When Calc is done the little car is on the screen but the street lines and freeways are not aligned and I get correct audio directions but not route
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Electronics Technicians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Today, it was the first time I have used it in 9mos
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 1 year ago
OK - what about the WHERE this device was last used - as compared to the current location? That is, was that about the same place. or perhaps HUNDREDS of miles away? Also, have you checked what maps (version) are currently installed in the device? Thanks

Hi again and thanks for that information. OK - is the a unit that came with Lifetime Map updates?If you can send me the Serial number of the device, I can probably look that up. Also, are there ANY "dates" at all - on that MyMaps screen- OR - any boxes or check marks in those boxes? Thanks
Ask Your Own GPS Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No date box box has a check in it.
I do have lifetime maps but i dont have an available computer to downliad from until tomorrow night. Was hoping to fix it and use tomorrow i have several appts that i could use it for
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 1 year ago
Hi again, OK - does the device have a microSD card installed in it OR HAD a microSD card installed at any time since new? Also, please take a look at the MAIN map screen (the View Map) and zoom WAY OUT - to see if the device has a satellite lock, and is at least placing itself in the correct state and general location.NOTE: If you don't have DETAILED maps on the device, you will ONLY see the MAJOR roads and freeways. Please let me know what you see when you zoom out.

Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 1 year ago
Also, please take a look at the following video - to see what I mean by a "date" on the maps (it is just a label - not a box). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMIT2hfRCHA If you can, let me know EXACTLY what you see on that MyMaps screen.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Maps have no dates
When i zoon out it shows me in california
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 1 year ago
Can you let me know EXACTLY what you see on that MyMaps screen?And what about a microSD cards? Did it EVER have one, or has one now? And are there NO MAJOR roads - at different levels of zoom?
Ask Your Own GPS Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It has a micro SD card that i install after i got the unit.
Map only shows landmarks like hotels and stores but no street names
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I take it back i can see street names
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am sorry i have to go can we continue tomorrow
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 1 year ago
OK - was that card installed 3 years ago, or some other time (when you got the unit)? Are those street names MAJOR streets (like freeways)?And are those hotels & stores perhaps "favorites" that were saved some time earlier?
Ask Your Own GPS Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Installed about 6mos after buying unit.
Yes
Yes
Electronics Technician: Greg A., Engineer replied 1 year ago
Yes, we an continue tomorrow. What I would recommend for NOW (if you have time) is removing the microSD card and then reinserting it (with the device switched OFF), and then power the device ON again, and see if the DETAILED maps appear (on the MyMaps OR View Map screen). For tomorrow, we will want to get a USB cable that will allow you to connect the device to a computer (you will need one of those too.)/
