Garmin sat nav HELP
on: June 04, 2019, 08:11:35 PM
Hi just received my new Garmin Zumo 595LM. I've registered my new device, done the updates everything was ok so started entering some places in France where we are going in September and here's my problem.

The France section of my sat nav is not showing in depth detail?

I'm sure it came up at first as I was in the process of planning a route from Cherbourg to our hotel when the map stopped showing full detail now not sure if I did anything wrong I've used Garmin before and on my older system used to have to unlock areas but can't remember.

If I zoom into UK or other european countries they seem fine, each country has an area and if I scroll from UK to France you can see the obvious detail difference. Do I need to unlock each country? I can scroll in, then I hit overzoom.
Any ideas anybody. :084:

Sounds like the France map is  not installed properly.
Have you installed Garmin Express on your Windows pc/laptop?
If not install it (no windows pc/laptop? - you'll need on for updates)
Then run GE, connect the satnav and update or re-install the European maps.
